What Is a Breast Reduction?

Many women with very large breasts experience physical discomfort and pain, bad posture, social embarrassment, and an inability to take part in sports. Breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, can help with this, allowing a patient to lead a more comfortable life. Breast reduction can do the following:

  • Create a more “in proportion” shape
  • Reduce physical discomfort, including back pain
  • Allow a patient to enjoy active sports
  • Improve self-confidence and body image

Dr. John H. Miller is a highly qualified and experienced surgeon in the field of breast reduction. He and his staff at Apogee Plastic Surgery are pleased to welcome breast reduction patients from throughout Mississippi, including Gulfport, Pascagoula, Hattiesburg, Long Beach, and Ocean Springs.

How Is a Breast Reduction Performed?

A breast reduction is performed under general anesthesia and normally does not require an overnight stay. It usually takes about three hours to complete, although the time does depend on the original size of your breasts. Once the anesthetic takes effect, Dr. Miller will remove some of the tissue and uplift the breast. The nipple may also be repositioned centrally on the breast, if necessary. The incisions will then be closed with fine, dissolvable stitches and covered with a sterile dressing.

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction?

The decision on whether a reduction mammoplasty is right for you is personal. After a full consultation with Dr. Miller, you will have a better idea of how the procedure works and why it may be a good choice for you. Many breast reduction patients experience the following before surgery:

  • Backache and breast pain from heavy breasts
  • Shoulder marks from the pressure of bra straps
  • Physical inhibition based on the size of their breasts
  • Inability to take part in physical sports
  • Difficulty in buying clothes and underwear due to breast size
  • The desire to look better in their clothes/swimwear

Dr. Miller welcomes you for a consultation at Apogee Plastic Surgery in Biloxi. His superior breast reduction techniques have changed the lives of women in Biloxi, Gulfport, Pascagoula, Hattiesburg, Long Beach, Ocean Springs, and the surrounding Mississippi communities.

What Post-Operative Care Can I Expect After Breast Reduction?

Dr. Miller will give you specific, individual advice about caring for yourself after a breast reduction. It is normal to expect some discomfort, but you will be given appropriate antibiotics and painkillers to facilitate your recovery and healing.

You may need to wear a sports bra immediately following surgery and for several weeks afterward to ensure your breasts are fully supported. You will have a series of follow-up appointments to remove your stitches and dressings and to check on your progress. Breast reduction patients will usually need to take two to four weeks off from work.

The medical team at Apogee Plastic Surgery works hard to make sure you are supported, cared for, and fully satisfied with the results of your breast reduction. Your comfort is of the utmost important to us.
