OPTIONS

The most common procedures for breast reduction surgery will be discussed at length during our consultation. To give an overview, here are the most common techniques:

  • Circumareolar mastopexy involves making an incision around the nipple-areolar complex (NAC). This technique is usually for patients who have only a small amount of ptosis (droop) or who wish to reduce size of the areola.

  • Severely ptotic (drooping) breast the Wise-Pattern mastopexy is the most commonly performed technique. It involves use of an incision that resembles an "anchor" once closure is completed. The Wise Pattern technique has major advantages, which are the ability to excise excess fat and/or skin and the potential to see the final shape of the breast.

During your consultation, Dr. Edgar Sosa, will discuss what the best option for the outcome you would like to obtain.

RECOVERY

Breast lift surgery will be performed at the hospital or an outpatient surgical center. After you recover from surgery, you will be discharged home with instruction. You will be sent home with pain medication, care instructions, and a compression garment to reduce fluid retention and swelling and support the breasts.

After a breast lift surgery, you will have tender breasts and soreness. Swelling is also expected and will take a few weeks to improve.

Many patients are able to return to work after 2 to 3 weeks and return to full activities after four to six weeks.

Dr. Edgar Sosa will continue postoperative care in the weeks following your surgery to ensure proper healing and satisfactory results.

Confidence is the most beautiful thing you can possess.
