Breast Reduction in South Jersey

Having breasts that are too large can make women feel self-conscious, not to mention that back problems may also develop. A breast reduction performed by board-certified South Jersey plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Mohit Sood could be the solution.

What Is a Breast Reduction?

A breast reduction, or reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure that reduces the size of the breasts. This is done by removing fatty tissue, glands, and skin to make the breasts smaller.

Benefits of a Breast Reduction

Numerous benefits of having a breast reduction include the following:

  • Eliminating self-consciousness
  • Relieving back and shoulder pain
  • Creating breasts that are more proportionate to the rest of your body

How Is a Breast Reduction Performed?

You will first be given general anesthesia so that incisions can be made in your breasts. These incisions are made around the areola, with the exact pattern depending on the shape of your breasts and the amount of fatty tissue present.

A precise amount of tissue will be removed from each breast. The nipple and areola are then repositioned to their proper position on the new, smaller breast. Sutures are used to hold internal breast tissue together, and then the skin is closed with stitches, adhesive, or surgical tape.

Preparing for a Breast Reduction

Before having a breast reduction, you should do the following:

  • Have a mammogram performed
  • Stop smoking
  • Refrain from taking aspirin or other medications that thin the blood
  • Have certain lab work performed
  • Make arrangements for someone to drive you home from the surgery

Recovery from a Breast Reduction

You should wear a support bra immediately after surgery to help provide comfort and minimize swelling. If bandages are used, keep an eye on these dressings and change them as needed. Avoid heavy lifting until after your follow-up exam to avoid pulling stitches.

How Much Does a Breast Reduction Cost?

The cost depends a great deal on the amount of tissue you wish to have removed. During your consultation, we will discuss your cost, including payment options such as major credit cards, checks, and CareCredit® financing.

Is a Breast Reduction Right for Me?
