Not all Corpus Christi women who see Dr. Rose for a breast procedure are looking for bigger breasts. Some Corpus Christi women have naturally large breasts and are looking to take a load off – literally – and relieve back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, or bra strap indentations in their skin. Often, women who desire a breast reduction think that the procedure is done mainly to resolve their issues with pain, and that aesthetics won’t matter. That’s not the case when you come to Dr. Rose for a breast reduction. Always concerned with providing you with the best version of yourself, Dr. Rose works diligently with his breast reduction patients not just to relieve their source of pain, but also to provide them with beautiful, natural-looking breasts that they’ll love.
How is a Breast Reduction Performed?
Depending on your unique case, Dr. Rose performs breast reduction surgery by making one or multiple incisions on your breasts, to remove unwanted breast tissue and skin. But when you get a breast reduction with Dr. Rose, he isn’t only concerned with removing a certain amount of tissue. Dr. Rose wants to provide you with the aesthetics you’ve always desired, which is why he works diligently to provide his Corpus Christi breast reduction patients with symmetrical, balanced and well-positioned breasts that look natural and beautiful on their frame. To accomplish this, Dr. Rose may also perform liposuction of the breast, and remove and reposition your nipple to a more appealing location.
Recovering for a Breast Reduction
As you can imagine, a breast reduction is a surgery that requires a meaningful recovery time so that your body can heal from the procedure and you can achieve the best results. This includes:
- Arranging for a ride for your trip home from the surgical center, as you will not be able to drive yourself home after a breast reduction due to the general anesthesia you will receive for your surgery;
- Taking about 1 week off of work or school to rest and recover after your surgery;
- Taking your post surgical medication as directed.
- Quitting smoking for at least 8 weeks before and 8 weeks after your breast reduction procedure, as smoking can complicate both the incision healing and your recovery time.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Reduction?
A breast reduction is a serious, life-changing surgery. Corpus Christi women who are considering a breast reduction should be evaluated to make sure that they:
- Are in good general health;
- Don’t have a history of excessive weight gain and loss, which could affect your long-term results;
- Have realistic expectations for your surgery;
- Are in good psychological health;
- Understand they may lose sensation in their breasts and nipples as a result of their surgery; and
- Understand they may not be able to breastfeed in the future as a result of their breast reduction surgery.
