PROCEDURES :: BREAST REDUCTION
Breast reduction is usually performed primarily for physical relief but can also result in cosmetic improvement.
A personal consultation is the first step for every patient considering breast reduction.Most women who have the surgery are troubled by very large, sagging breasts that restrict their activities and cause them physical discomfort caused by the excessive weight.If symptoms are severe enough, a significant portion of the surgical fee may be covered under health insurance plans.
Breast reduction results in breasts that are made smaller, lighter and firmer. The goal is to give better shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of the body. The procedure can leave noticeable scars depending on the way you heal.
Although scars from breast reduction surgery are somewhat unavoidable, Dr. Rebot utlizes some of the most advanced techniques in breast reduction surgery to help to minimize the size and length of the resultant scars. You may generally return to work and social activities in two weeks or less, but strenuous physical activity is discouraged for 4 to 6 weeks.
At the initial consultation, it's important to discuss your expectations frankly with Dr. Rebot. In most cases, breast reduction isn't performed until a woman's breasts are fully developed; however, it can be done earlier if large breasts are causing serious physical discomfort. The best candidates are those who are mature enough to fully understand the procedure and have realistic expectations about the results. The breasts will be examined to determined which surgical procedure will best suit your expectations.
Variables will be discussed that may affect the outcome of the surgery such as- your overall health, age, the size and shape of your breasts, and the condition of your skin, etc.For some, but not all women, breast reduction may restrict the ability to breast-feed. If you plan to breast feed be fully aware of this potential complication before you proceed with the surgery. Other potential complications with the surgery will also be discussed.
Fees for aesthetic surgery are customarily paid prior to the surgery. The costs may vary depending on the procedure and/or complexity of the surgery. All costs will be reviewed with you at the time of your initial consultation.If the patient has severe symptoms related to excessively large breasts a significant portion of the costs of the procedure may be covered under insurance plans.
