What to Expect with Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is an out-patient procedure (no overnight stay required) that is typically completed in 2-3 hours, depending on the necessary extent of treatment. Dr. Minns will remove excess breast fat and skin (in some cases) to create breasts that are reshaped to be lighter in weight and firmer to the touch. Depending on your cosmetic surgery needs, your nipples and areolas may be repositioned as well, in order to create the ideal aesthetic for your new breast shape. Recovery time for this procedure usually takes a few weeks, and a special supportive bra is recommended for wear, in order to promote healing.

Candidates for this breast surgery are those who are finished having children and who are in good physical health, as breast size and shape can be altered with weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and breastfeeding.
