Ideal Candidates For Breast Reduction
If you suffer from extremely large and heavy breasts that interfere with everyday life, a surgical breast reduction may be what you need to achieve the contour you want. Breast reduction is ideal for women who deal with constant worry or are not able to live a fulfilled and active life because of the heaviness of their breasts. If you also have consistent skin inflammations or irritations (as well as back pain), breast reduction surgery can greatly diminish these medical conditions. It's crucial that patients are at a stable weight and choose a skillful surgeon, like Dr. Z, who listens to their concerns and goals and has the training to create a normal and natural appearance.
"I recently visited for fillers on my cheekbone and jawline (Radiesse Plus), as well as some wrinkle relaxer (Xeomin). The process took a little longer than I had expected but the injector was well versed in her practice and very gentle with me. I am very happy with the results. There was a little bruising which is normal with deeper fillers, but from day 1 it was a great improvement. Never thought that just a couple syringes (ok ok like 4 Radiesse, 1 Xeomin) could make such a difference in how I see myself and how others do as well. Highly recommend."- M.J. / Google / Jun 22, 2019

Breast Reduction Surgical Technique
Instead of having traditional surgical breast reduction that would leave you with multiple scars around the nipple and under the breast, there will be just three or four small insertion sites, hidden under each breast and in the armpit crease. Fat is selectively suctioned with tiny cannulas to improve breast contour, decrease droop and volume, and maintain cleavage and projection. Many women prefer this method because of the quicker recovery and less visible scarring. Modest lift and skin tightening may be achieved using laser, water assisted, and ultrasonic liposuction techniques.
What to Expect In Breast Reduction
Once surgery has been completed, you will be monitored closely for a short period of time and then sent home to begin the healing process. A compression bra will be worn for a few days that will increase blood circulation to the breasts during the immediate recovery. In a month or so, the breasts will naturally fall into position and the post-surgery effects will disappear. Most of our patients at Aesthetic Revolution Las Vegas say they feel relieved, lighter, and more confident. Following surgical breast reduction, you can enjoy the clothes you so desire and feel excited about your new contour. Keep in mind, it is important to maintain a healthy body weight so the outcomes are not compromised.

Can I breastfeed after a breast reduction?
Reduction surgery can affect breastfeeding. Although some women can still breastfeed after a surgical reduction, other women cannot. It's difficult to know whether your breast reduction will interfere with breastfeeding. This is why Dr. Z suggests that patients be done with breastfeeding before considering breast reduction surgery.
Can my breasts regrow after surgery?
Following reduction surgery, your breasts may get smaller or bigger with dramatic weight changes.
