Breast reduction surgery may not only improve breast appearance and posture, but also dramatically improve your quality of life and self confidence. If you have uncomfortably large breasts you may be experiencing neck, back, and shoulder pain from "cutting" bra straps, and persistent skin irritations under your breasts. This will often limit your ability to enjoy an active and functional life. Besides the physical side effects, the emotional and mental strain it causes can be painful. Fortunately, with the latest technology and Dr. Pancholi's artistic skills this is a correction sought out by many women with excellent results.
Breast reduction surgery involves the removal of excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to create smaller and better shaped breasts with improved symmetry. Incisions for this surgery are similar to those of a Peri-areolar or Inverted T breast lift. In fact, at the same time that the breast is reduced, it is also lifted into a new, higher position maximizing the overall appearance.
With breast reduction surgery, the emotional and mental strain is often markedly improved, if not resolved. Patients typically experience a much more active life both physically and socially, participating in activities and events they may have felt restricted from prior, but not anymore!
Many patients in our practice choose to have breast implants while having their breasts reduced. While the goal of breast reduction is to reduce the overall size of the breast, it is not at the sacrifice of shape and aesthetic appeal. A breast reduction with an implant can enhance the appearance and shape, while reducing the amount of overall tissue.
Placing breast implants can allow you to obtain cleavage and fullness with your new smaller breasts. To accommodate the implant, additional breast tissue is removed. This allows Dr. Pancholi to create the desired shape without increasing the overall size of the breast. Implants are most always placed under the muscle to give you the benefits of greater support, greater tissue coverage, and lower risk for capsular contraction. The implants can be either saline or silicone and can allow for the look that most women seeking breast augmentation alone are able to achieve.
Please feel free to contact our office if you have any questions about the benefits of breast reduction surgery, or if you would like to make an appointment with Dr. Pancholi for a consultation.
