What is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that eliminates excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to help resolve any pain caused by over-large breasts and make the breast more proportional with the body.

Breast Reduction removes the skin from both sides of the breast and around the areola to create a better contour of the breast. The procedure can also include decreasing the size of the areolas and/or moving them into a higher position.

Breast Reduction FAQS

Am I a good candidate for a breast reduction?

If you feel self-conscious about the size of your breasts and it is affecting your lifestyle, including sports activities, you are a great candidate for a breast reduction. You should be in good physical health, a non-smoker, and have a stable weight.

What are the results of a breast reduction?

You can expect the results of your breast reduction to be long-lasting if you maintain a healthy lifestyle. It will change your lifestyle for the better as you will be able to be more active and feel self-confident. Our goal is to give you the best Breast Reduction Miami has to offer.

What are the risks with a breast reduction?

Breast Reduction is a very personal issue and you need to be aware of the risks involved. Dr. Zuriarrain, an experienced Miami breast reduction surgeon, will discuss the specifics of your case in detail during your consultation. Some of the risks and complications can include:

  • Undesirable scarring
  • Bleeding or infection
  • Sensation changes
  • Asymmetry of the breasts
  • Accumulation of fluid
  • Chance of further surgery required

Why do women need breast reduction surgery?

It is vital for any woman to feel comfortable with her body. There are many physical, emotional and psychological issues that can arise from having breasts that are too large.

Many of our Breast Reduction patients have suffered from neck pain, back and shoulder pain, skin issues under the breasts, and sleeping problems. These physical discomforts can influence what you wear, or how you participate in physical activities, and that can have a significant impact on your self-confidence.

When can I exercise again after a breast reduction?

You can begin with gentle movement as soon as you feel up to it, a day or two after your procedure. For example, walking promotes blood circulation and reduces the risks of blood clots without putting excess strain on your chest wall. Light cardio is a great way to be active, trigger endorphins and help to make you feel better. 

However, you should avoid any heavy lifting or strenuous exercises for at least six weeks after surgery. Too vigorous cardio exercises can lead to bleeding, scarring or separation of an incision. And make sure to wear a quality sports bra during any activities. You want to give yourself an extended period of time and allow your chest tissue enough time to heal properly. 

When you do restart your regular exercise routine, begin with low-impact activities like riding a stationary bicycle. We want you to have a smooth recovery after one of the best breast reductions Miami has to offer. Listen to what your body is telling you as far as any pain you experience during exercise. You want to move forward without overdoing it. 

Breast Reduction Procedure

The specific techniques to be used will be based on your initial consultation and your desired results. Incisions will be made while you are under general anesthesia. Depending on the size and reason, liposuction may be used as a secondary means of removing excess fat deposits. 

Skin and glandular tissues will be removed by other means at the hands of Dr. Zuriarrain. Once all the tissues are removed to reach the desired size, the reduction will end with the nipple and areola being aligned in a natural position.
