Oversized breasts can cause social and functional challenges for women. In addition, overly large and unbalanced breasts can create self-image issues and embarrassment, as well as pain in both the neck and back. Dr. Robert Schwartz is a plastic surgeon in Dallas, TX who helps countless women rebuild their confidence and live an active lifestyle through breast reduction surgery.

    This cosmetic surgery at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery reduces excess fat, tissue, and skin to reshape the breasts to a smaller, more balanced size. This surgery also reduces the size of the nipples and repositions them so they look natural with the new breast size. In most cases, a breast lift is incorporated to provide a tighter and youthful appearance.

      breast reduction SURGICAL TECHNIQUE

      Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient treatment and performed with general anesthesia. The duration of the surgery is dependent upon a variety of factors, including what incision method is used, the overall technique, the degree of reduction. The nipple and areola repositioning will also be a factor. In most cases, liposuction is required for fat removal to decrease the breast size.

        During the consultation, all of these factors are addressed with Dr. Schwartz. The topic of scarring is also discussed as it is common to occur, although advanced methods have led to a decrease in overall scarring. Depending on the complexity of the reduction, either an anchor or a vertical incision will be used. The breast tissue is removed, and the remaining tissue and skin is tightened.

        WHAT TO EXPECT after breast reduction

        After surgery, patients will be observed closely in our private recovery facility and then released home to heal. A draining tube will most likely be placed near the surgical site to help control swelling and bleeding. A medical sports bra should be worn for several days that will improve blood flow to the breasts during the initial healing period. Within about a month, the breasts will settle and the post-op effects will disappear.

        The majority of our patients remark they feel very relieved, lighter, and more self-assured. After breast reduction surgery, you can buy the clothes you have always wanted and feel confident with your new contour. Remember, it is still important to adhere to a healthy weight so the results are not negatively impacted.

        I have read and agree to the FAQ terms of use.
        What can someone do to stop lactating?

        What can someone do to stop lactating? There is a drug called Bromocriptine (Parlodel) that stops lactation. If a patient is interested in using it, she should discuss it with her Ob/Gyn or family doctor. The drug has potential side effects and is usually used only when lactation doesn't cease on its own and is troublesome.

        Is it normal to have a sore throat after surgery?

        Sore throat can happen after surgery. It is usually caused by the endotracheal tube the anesthesiologist uses to help you breath. It is somewhat more common in women than in men. The soreness is usually mild and goes away within a few days. A severe sore throat or one that lasts for more than a few days should be reported to Dr. Schwartz.

        Can I donate blood before surgery?

        Donating blood causes a temporary anemia. This usually corrects within 1-2 weeks. Nonetheless, we recommend that patients do not donate blood for at least one month before cosmetic surgery.

        Some patients have expressed interest in donating blood for their own use, if needed. Since most cosmetic procedures are designed to produce minimal to moderate blood loss, transfusion is almost never needed. While you are, of course, free to self-donate blood, this would almost always be unnecessary.
