Breast reduction is a serious procedure that may be right for women who suffer from having extremely large breasts that are not proportionate to the rest of their body frames. It is usually performed on women whose breasts have completely developed but may be done on younger women or even on teenagers who are experiencing great difficulty in everyday life from having such large breasts. At OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Newport Beach, we put the focus on finding what is right for each individual.
Those looking for a Newport Beach breast reduction will appreciate Dr. Tavoussi’s approach to the procedure. He believes that each person is unique and has a body shape that is different from anyone else’s. Therefore, when planning a breast reduction, Dr. Tavoussi will spend plenty of time to discuss the procedure with the patient, answer any questions and even show them how they may look following surgery using our state-of-the-art digital computer technology.
Occasionally, a breast reduction is done for cosmetic reasons if a Newport Beach patient feels very uncomfortable with breast size. However, it is usually performed to alleviate physical concerns, such as back pain, shoulder pain from bra straps and difficulty taking deep breaths. Some women may even experience skin rashes, redness and major irritation underneath their breasts due to the constant rubbing on the underlying skin.
For these reasons, a surgical breast reduction may be the best solution. A Newport Beach breast reduction is performed at Pacifica Outpatient Surgery Center where patients will be put to sleep using general anesthesia. Dr. Tavoussi will then make a series of incisions around the breast areola and down to the breast crease. He will use these incisions to remove fat and glandular tissue. Depending on individual needs, he may need to move or reform the nipple and areola before completing the surgery.
Recovery from surgery usually includes some pain, which can be controlled using pain medication prescribed by Dr. Tavoussi. However, most patients find that they can be up and around in just a few days as long as they are careful not to strain the incisions by stretching or lifting heavy items. The biggest benefit to patients who choose a Newport Beach breast reduction is their newfound freedom from pain and irritation from extremely large breasts. We at OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Orange County will walk with patients each step of the way.
