Who Is a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction?

If you’re a woman who would like to reduce the size of your breasts, you could be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery. Whether you’re looking to reduce your breast size for aesthetic reasons, to improve your day-to-day comfort, or even to improve your posture and mobility, the procedure could be right for you.

To be an ideal candidate for breast reduction surgery, you should also meet the following criteria:

  • Be in generally good physical health
  • Not be currently pregnant or nursing
  • Have realistic expectations for the procedure
  • Be a non-smoker or willing to temporarily quit

What is breast reduction surgery like?

The breast reduction procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Glat will make an incision under the nipple and down the breast to the inframammary fold where the breast connects to the chest. Excess tissue and skin are removed, reducing weight and volume, and, if necessary, the breasts will be lifted into a position higher on the chest. Dr. Glat may also reposition the nipples, so they are beautifully placed in the center of the breast mound to create a fresh, youthful breast shape and size.

What is the recovery for breast reduction?

You can expect a recovery period of four to six weeks following your breast reduction in Philadelphia. Some soreness and swelling are normal during the first two weeks, and your breasts may feel tender for up to six weeks. In light of this, they must be treated gently.

Some patients experience numbness and desensitization in the breasts for months and, on occasion, permanently. Surgical scars will fade over time, but will never disappear entirely.

While we do not currently accept insurance for this procedure, Dr. Glat and his staff look forward to working with you to develop plastic surgery goals that help you look and feel your best.
