What is a Breast Reduction?
Excessively large breasts can create social, functional, and physical challenges for women. In addition, extremely large breasts can create insecurity issues and overall embarrassment, as well as neck and back pain. Board-certified plastic surgeon and hand surgeon Dr. Omar Ahmed continues to help countless women regain their confidence and enjoy the life they want through a cosmetic breast reduction. This aesthetic surgery reduces excess fat, tissue, and skin to reshape the breasts to a more normal size. It also reconstructs the size of the nipples/areolas and repositions them so they are symmetrical with the new breast size. In most cases, a breast lift can be implemented to provide a more taut and youthful appearance. Contact Omar Ahmed, M.D. in Pasadena, CA to learn more.
Do I qualify for breast reduction?
If you suffer from large, heavy breasts that get in the way of everyday life, breast reduction surgery may be what you need to attain the shape you wish for. This surgery is an effective procedure for women who are not able to live a fulfilled and active life because of the size of their breasts. If you also have consistent skin issues, as well as back pain, breast reduction surgery can eliminate these annoyances. It's crucial that patients are at a normal weight and choose a trained surgeon, like Dr. Ahmed, who understands their aesthetic goals and has the knowledge to create a natural appearance.

Breast Reduction Surgery Technique
Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient treatment conducted with the patient under general anesthesia. The timing of surgery depends on several factors, including what incision method is used, the overall surgical technique, and finally, how much reduction is required. The areola and nipple area repositioning is also a factor. For most patients, liposuction is used for fat and tissue elimination to reduce the breast size. At the time of the initial consult, all of these factors are addressed with Dr. Ahmed. Potential for scarring is also scrupulously examined and talked through as it is likely to occur. Depending on the intricacy of the reduction, either an inverted-T or a straight line (vertical) incision will be incorporated. The breast tissue will be removed, and the remaining tissue and skin will be pulled tight and secured.
Follow-up After Breast Reduction
Once surgery has been completed, our patients will be observed closely in our quiet recovery area and then discharged home to begin the healing process. A thin tube for draining is usually inserted near the surgical site to assist with bleeding and swelling. A medical sports bra will be worn for a few days that will increase blood flow to the breasts during the immediate recovery. Within about a month, the breasts will naturally fall into position and the post-op effects will disappear. The majority of patients at Omar Ahmed, M.D. say they feel less weighed down and more confident after breast reduction surgery.
