What's YOUnique about Breast Reduction Surgery?

A breast reduction procedure involves removing excess skin and fat from the breast. Most patients who consider breast reduction surgery in Santa Monica suffer from soreness and pain in their back, which is typically caused by having large, heavy breasts.

While there are many methods of breast reduction surgery, Dr. Youssef prefers using liposuction, since the breasts are mostly comprised of fat tissue. This technique reduces side effects and minimizes scarring, making it a preferred method.

Breast Reduction

Instead of removing or disrupting any skin, 3 to 5 tiny incisions are made. These incisions make it possible to insert a cannula (small metal tube) and remove the excess fat. For your breast reduction in Los Angeles, anesthesia infused with adrenaline will be directly administered to the area where the fat will be removed. The area will then become numb and the blood vessels will become constricted, eliminating pain. This process is called tumescent liposuction.

Recovery and Results

Since you will have anesthesia in your system, it is recommended that you have someone pick you up, stay with you overnight, and bring you back in the next day to have your first postoperative check-up after your breast reduction.

You will be given a supportive bra that must be worn 24 hours a day to minimize sagging and speed up healing. After the first day you should be walking at least 30 minutes a day in addition to your usual regimen. Donít shave or go swimming for a few days after your procedure (this can cause infection). Most patients are able to recover without taking pain medication, but it is okay if necessary. Swelling and any bruising dissipate after a few weeks.
