Breast Reduction Surgery
What Does Breast Reduction Surgery Do?
Breast reduction surgery is intended to give you a more attractive breast contour, and smaller size, to enhance your self-image. Breast reduction is also designed to alleviate health problems associated with excessively large breasts.
Are You a Candidate for Breast Reduction?
If you have large, heavy breasts they may cause breathing difficulties, back, shoulder and neck pain, poor posture, bra-strap indentation, and under-breast chafing, you may be a candidate for breast reduction surgery.
You may also be a candidate for breast reduction in Denver if excessive breast size is decreasing your sense of attractiveness and self-confidence, or if your large breasts are interfering with exercise and daily activities. Many women choose to have a breast reduction because they feel uncomfortable with the size of their large breasts or have experienced significant sagging as a result of the size of their breasts.
How Is the Breast Reduction Procedure Performed?
Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia in our state licensed surgery center adjacent to Dr. Slenkovich’s clinical practice. The nipples along with the pigmented areas around the nipples are moved upward, and excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are removed.
Will There be an Obvious Scar?
During the breast surgery, Dr. Slenkovich performs a limited-scar technique for the majority of Denver breast reduction patients. This technique often eliminating the long scars underneath the breasts.
What Is Recovery Like?
After breast reduction surgery, the patient goes home with a bra or dressing that holds the breasts symmetrically during the initial healing period. Initial discomfort subsides daily and is controlled with oral medication. Light activities may be started in 7-10 days following your breast reduction. Scars typically fade over the course of the first 6-12 months.
Is Insurance Available for Breast Reduction Surgery?
Breast Reduction Surgery may occasionally be covered by insurance, however each insurance company differs and may require a minimum removal of tissue from each breast to qualify, documentation of health problems as a result of having large breasts, or additional factors. At this time Colorado Plastic Surgery Center is not accepting new insurance patients.
