Overly large or sagging breasts can affect a woman’s physical appearance as well as her way of life. Breast lift and reduction surgery can relieve the discomfort resulting from excessively large breasts by removing excess skin and fat from the breasts. Dr. Sarah Mess specializes in breast lifts and cosmetic breast reduction surgery. She focuses on the overall appearance and shape of the breast to provide a more shapely and attractive breast, not just a smaller breast. Her cosmetic breast reductions help patients achieve their aesthetic goals and restore their confidence.
The Breast Reduction Procedure
Dr. Mess performs breast reduction surgery on an outpatient basis with general anesthesia. During the procedure, excess fat and glandular tissues are removed from the breasts using a specific incision pattern. The type of incision used will depend on the severity of the patient’s condition.
An incision is made around the areola, extending vertically down the breast, and horizontally in the breast fold.
An incision is made around the areola and extends vertically down to the breast crease.
