For some women, having enlarged breasts can adversely affect both physical and mental health. If you are experiencing physical pain, embarrassment, or overall dissatisfaction with the size of your breasts, breast reduction surgery may be an option for you. Breast reduction in Encino is for anyone seeking to improve their quality of life and overall satisfaction with the way they look through the elimination of excess breast tissue.
Breast reduction offers a variety of medical and cosmetic benefits. For some, a larger breast size can lead to increased stress on the body, causing chronic pain in the neck, back, or shoulders. For others, skin irritation from chafing underneath or between enlarged breasts can cause rashes, redness, or itching. Additionally, playing sports or properly fitting into bras or clothing may be difficult, leading to embarrassment. A breast reduction surgery from experienced breast surgeon Dr. Yaghoubian may eliminate all of these adverse effects.
Before undergoing breast reduction in Encino, it is essential to consult with Dr. Yaghoubian, who has extensive training and a broad-based knowledge on plastic surgery of all types. During this meeting, you should discuss your personal goals for your appearance and surgical outcomes, as well as your health history so that we can confirm you are a good candidate for this procedure.
In addition, feel free to ask for some before and after photos of patients who look similar to you and who sought similar outcomes so that you can get a sense for what the final outcome might look like.
Dr. Yaghoubian will also provide you with instructions for before and after surgery, and explain the type of procedure that she will use to complete the breast reduction. Before the surgery date, you should have all of your questions answered so you can make an informed decision about the procedure.
On the day of your procedure, we will administer anesthesia to eliminate any pain during the surgery. Dr. Yaghoubian will make an incision around your nipple, then down along the front of the breast to remove excess tissues underneath the skin’s surface. Once she removes some of the fat and tissue, she will reposition your nipple for a more symmetrical appearance, and suture the incision area to promote healing and reduce your risk for infection.
You may experience some temporary tenderness, swelling, or bruising following your breast reduction in Encino. Dr. Yaghoubian can prescribe you some pain medication for the first few days of recovery. We recommend that you avoid underwire bras or intense physical activity until the tissue heals and we remove the stitching. You will then have a follow-up visit to remove the stitches and for us to assess your healing process.
Since the procedure for breast reduction in Encino is a major surgery requiring anesthesia and time for recovery, it is important to have all of the information ahead of time and for all of your questions to be answered. At AESTHETICA LA, we make sure you are fully prepped before you commit.
Breast reduction can alleviate some of the adverse effects that women may experience because of enlarged breast size. In addition, most people may experience increased self-esteem and confidence with satisfaction in how they look following breast reduction surgery.
