Breast Reduction in Fredericksburg, VA

What is a Breast Reduction?

Excessively large breasts can cause many women social, functional, and physical challenges. In addition, overly large and unbalanced breasts can create self-confidence issues, overall embarrassment, and physical pain. Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki are plastic surgeons in Fredericksburg, VA who have helped countless women rebuild their confidence and feel more comfortable through cosmetic breast reduction. This cosmetic surgery at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg removes excess breast tissue and skin to redefine and reshape the breasts to a more compatible size. This surgery also reshapes the size of the nipples and moves them so they appear normal with the new breast size. In most situations, a breast lift can be implemented to provide a more taut and healthier appearance.

How Does a Breast Reduction Work?

Liposuction is often incorporated for tissue and fat reduction to decrease breast size. The nipple and areola repositioning is another factor. All of these factors will be addressed during the consultation. The potential for scarring is also thoroughly discussed as it is likely to occur. However, surgical skills and advanced methods have led to a noticeable reduction in the visibility of scarring. Depending on the intricacy of the size and overall reduction, either an inverted-T or a straight line (vertical) incision will be made. Breast fat and tissue will be removed, and the surrounding skin and tissue will be tightened.

What Are the Benefits of A Breast Reduction?

While some people might look for ways to grow the shape of their breasts, for some, unnaturally large breasts can negatively impact their everyday lives and self-image.

Will my insurance cover breast reduction?

In some cases, your health insurance might pay part of the cost of your surgery if it's deemed medically necessary. If you want to use your insurance, tell a team member so they can help you with your insurance claim. You should also contact your insurance company to find out if your policy might cover the surgery and what they need to approve it. Your insurance will most likely decide based on measurements like your weight, height, body mass index (BMI), and body surface area.

Will my nipples be moved during breast reduction surgery?

In most cases, the nipples and areola will be moved up to a central position on the breast during breast reduction surgery. If a large amount of tissue and skin needs to be removed, your nipple-areola are may need to be moved. Your surgeon will select an incision technique so the nipple and areola can be moved higher on the breast. It's also possible to perform an areolatome to reduce the size of the areolas.
