Breast Reduction Las Vegas

Overly large breasts pose both cosmetic and health-related issues that can be alleviated by breast reduction surgery. Las Vegas plastic surgeons Dr. Michael Edwards and Dr. Terrence Higgins specialize in cosmetic breast surgery and understand that heavy, large breasts not only affect your self-image, but that they can also cause back, neck, and shoulder pain and severely limit your physical activity.

If you’re tired of having your life disrupted by large, pendulous breasts, request a consultation at our Las Vegas practice to discuss your breast reduction options, or call our office at 702-822-2100 to schedule an appointment.

Is Breast Reduction Right for Me?

Breast reduction patients are among the most satisfied with their results. If you experience physical pain caused by the weight of your breasts, are uncomfortable wearing certain clothing styles, or simply don’t like the way your breasts look, a breast reduction procedure is an excellent option.

You are a good breast reduction candidate if you:

  • Are in good overall health, besides suffering physically because of your breast size
  • Are bothered by your breasts’ appearance
  • Are unable to participate in enjoyable physical activities
  • Suffer from irritated skin beneath your breast crease
  • Have areolas that are enlarged because of stretched skin

How Is Breast Reduction Performed?

Planning for your breast reduction procedure begins at your consultation, when your surgeon assesses the condition of your skin and measures your breasts. Ultimately, the physical assessment combined with your cosmetic goals determines the best path to take for surgery.

The procedure is done using general anesthesia and, depending on your situation, can take 2 to 5 hours. Although there are different incision options, the most common breast reduction procedure involves 3 incisions. The first is made around your areola, then another is made in a vertical line along your breast down to the crease, and a third incision is made horizontally along the crease.

Once the incisions are made, Dr. Edwards or Dr. Higgins removes extra fat, skin, and breast tissue and repositions the nipple and areola. If desired, the areola can be made smaller.

Speaking from Experience

“I ask my patients to have completely stopped breastfeeding for at least 3 months prior to any breast surgery. If you are still having nipple discharge with minimal manipulation of your breasts, I would have you wait longer. The risk with a breast reduction is that collections of breast milk could pool in the area of surgery causing healing complications. It also allows for any contraction of your tissues to occur, yielding a more predictable post-op result.” – Dr. Michael Edwards
