Large breasts from natural genetics, post pregnancy body changes or changes in body composition can lead to any number of complications. Indeed, many women with large breasts come to experience some degree of back pain.
Here at Dermatology and Plastic Surgery Specialists, Dr. Natalie Driessen can perform a breast reduction to alter the volume of your breasts as well as lift them. This can rejuvenate the youthful appearance of your breasts and help alleviate symptoms of other conditions.
During your initial consultation, you should let your surgeon know about any medical conditions you have or medications you are taking. It’s also a good idea to plan a full week off from work and other strenuous activities. This will allow your body to focus its resources on recovery.
Our surgeon typically performs a breast reduction in a single outpatient appointment where you will need to be fully sedated. Afterward, you will need to have a friend or family member drive you home.
You will need to fully abstain from eating or drinking after midnight the day before the breast reduction. It’s best to dress in loose-fitting clothes to make it easy to redress after the breast reduction. We will also provide you with a special postoperative bra.
