Overly large breasts (macromastia) can interfere with physical activity, create posture problems, and even cause pain in the neck or along the bra straps. For women with overly large breasts, having children and breastfeeding can accentuate the breast droop and intensify their physical symptoms. When performed in combination with their Mommy Makeover, breast reduction can give Dallas and Fort Worth mothers improved quality of life and an enhanced appearance.
A popular breast enhancement surgery for Dallas moms with very large breasts, a breast reduction removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin. This procedure automatically lifts the breasts and also allows for creation of areolas that are more proportionate to the breasts. Dr. Bogdan uses the following breast reduction techniques, which depend on the extent of the reduction:
When combined with a tummy tuck in Dallas, TX, the results of the Mommy Makeover surgery can be dramatic. Because skin from below the breasts is removed, the tummy tuck component can actually make the breasts appear larger. So despite the reduction, the breasts may still appear proportionately large. Moms who have been bothered by large breasts are generally extremely happy with the changes from their Mommy Makeover, as the relief of back discomfort and the ease of fitting clothing make daily living easier and more enjoyable.
A breast reduction usually takes about 2 to 3 hours to complete and can be performed as an outpatient procedure. When combined with a tummy tuck during a Mommy Makeover, the entire procedure takes about 4 to 6 hours of surgical time. Combining procedures, including liposuction in Dallas, into the Mommy Makeover surgery can help busy moms gain physical freedom, increase self-esteem, and reduce their downtime.
