Breast Reduction Surgery (Reduction Mammoplasty) – Las Vegas, NV

about breast reduction surgery

Breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty surgery is a procedure that reduces fatty breast tissue, glandular tissue, and skin from large pendulous breasts. This makes breasts smaller and firmer. Breast reduction surgery will also restore sagging breasts to a more youthful and lifted position on the chest wall. Additionally, the areola will be reduced in size and repositioned higher on the breast. Women who have large breasts (macromastia), may experience a variety of physical symptoms. The physical symptoms result from the weight and size of their breasts. These may include back, neck, shoulder pain, as well as skin irritation and breakdown on the underside of the breasts. Poor exercise tolerance as well as limited clothing options are also often cited as factors motivating patients to surgery. Breast reduction is usually performed for relief of these symptoms. However, at Stile Aesthetics in Las Vegas, NV, board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile will develop a treatment plan that is unique to you and your needs.

ideal candidates

When your neck and back hurt, it reduces your quality of life. When you are in pain, your movements are limited, your posture is slumped, and you generally do not feel well. Women with large breasts experience this on a daily basis. Some women, through no fault of their own, cannot correct this issue with diet and exercise alone. If you experience the following symptoms from large, heavy breasts, you may be an ideal candidate for breast reduction surgery:
  • Irritation and rashes on the skin underneath the bra
  • Diet and exercise unsuccessfully decreasing the size of the breasts
  • Disproportionate breasts to the body frame
  • Weight of the breasts causes pain in the neck, shoulders, and back
  • Bra straps grooves in the shoulders
  • Limitations on activity because of the size of the breasts
  • Poor posture

what to expect

Using state-of-the-art surgical techniques that limit the risks of surgery, our plastic surgeon will skillfully reduces excess skin and suction out tissue to reshape the breast. During surgery, it is common to use one of the following incision approaches:
  • An incision around of the areola
  • A vertical incision from the bottom of the areola to the breast line
  • A horizontal incision on the breast line
Liposuction is generally used to safely reduce fat tissues from within the breast. Excess skin will be reduced, and then a breast lift is usually needed to attain a healthy looking result. It is common for women requesting this procedure to go down 1 – 2 cup sizes. After a 2 – 4-hour breast reduction surgery, you will wake up in recovery and feel immediately lighter in the chest area. You will be instructed on how to properly care for your incisions to limit scarring. After being sent home wrapped in a surgical compression garment and sports bra, it is advised that you take it easy for the first few weeks after the surgery. Expect to feel less sensation in your nipples, as they will take up to a year to recover and resume sensitivity. It is suggested that breast reduction patients not return to work for 7 – 10 days, and wait 6 – 8 weeks before resuming physical activities.

anticipated results

Breast reduction surgery can dramatically change the lives of our patients, resulting in smaller breasts that makes everyday activities easier.
