A talented and experienced plastic surgeon, he has the skills needed to bring the breasts into better proportion with the rest of the body. With smaller, lighter breasts, patients are happy to learn that their life transforms.
A More Comfortable Life with Breast Reduction
After breast reduction, chronic pain substantially decreases and the breasts no longer cause skin chafing, shoulder grooves or posture problems. Clothing fits better and wardrobe options expand. Exercise requires less effort and physical activities are more enjoyable. You will probably find yourself leading a more active and exciting lifestyle because breast reduction broadens your opportunities.
Psychologically, breast reduction leads to improvement in self-esteem and confidence. You will feel much better about your appearance and your body shape. You might be pleased to find that you no longer attract unwanted sexual attention or advances because of noticeably large breasts.
More about the Procedure
Breast reduction is designed to improve the breasts by doing the following:
Remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin. Excess fat may be removed through liposuction techniques, and tissue is surgically excised. The amount of fat and tissue removed varies by the size of the breasts. Extra sagging, lax skin is eliminated.
Reshape the breast mound. The remaining breast tissue is lifted and shaped to modify the breast mound. The goal is to bring the breasts into better proportion with the rest of the body.
Modify the nipples and areolas. If your areolas are oversized or stretched-out, they can be reduced in size by excising skin at the perimeter. Downward-pointing nipples are corrected. The nipple and areola can be relocated to a higher position on the breast mound, if needed.
Breast reduction is performed through incisions made on the breast, typically around the areola and within the crease of the breast. Dr. Raj will make the incisions carefully and thoughtfully, and scarring along the incision line will fade over time (although it may never completely disappear). After making the necessary modifications, the newly lifted and reshaped breast tissue may be fixed into place with internal sutures.
Breast reduction can be combined with breast lift techniques to restore sagging breasts higher on the chest wall. This option will be discussed with you during your initial surgical consultation.
