Breast Reduction / Breast Mammaplasty
You can't find clothing that flatters your figure-don't even talk about a swimsuit. Finding a bra that fits is a chore, or participating in your favorite activities are uncomfortable, or outright painful. Your back hurts, or your bra straps cut so deeply into your shoulders it makes you want to cry. The weight of large, sagging breasts can cause back pain, postural problems, deformities of the back and shoulders, skin rashes and breast pain. But you don't have to live with inconvenience or discomfort of breasts that are too large for your frame.
Dr. Edward Terino, Medical Director of the Southern California Institute of Plastic Surgery, can help with a reconstructive, surgical procedure generally known as a breast reduction. A breast reduction performed by Dr. Terino, a board certified plastic surgeon, can help alleviate the physical and, possibly, the emotion pain caused by excessively large and weighty breast.
Breast reduction, technically termed reduction mammaplasty, is the removal of excess fat, glandular tissue and skin in order to produce breasts that are proportional to the rest of the body, and, as a consequence, relieve the discomfort caused by large, weighty breasts.
The most common breast reduction technique uses incisions that encircle the areola and then extend vertically down the breast and horizontally along the crease underneath the breast. There are other breast reduction techniques that may eliminate the horizontal incision, the vertical incision, or both. These techniques can only be used in special circumstances. The use of any particular pattern of incision depends on individual patient factors. An examination and consultation with Dr. Terino, a board certified plastic surgeon, can determine what pattern of incision is best for your specific case.
Still, in many instances, the resulting scars are permanent but most fade considerably after one or two years. However keep in mind, the benefits of your reduction last a lifetime. Patients almost always note the reduction of their physical discomfort, and many patients comment of the increased aesthetic appearance of their reduced breasts.
