About Breast Reduction Surgery
Abnormally large breasts can create social and functional challenges for women. In addition, uneven and very large breasts can lead to self-image issues and overall embarrassment, as well as physical pain. Our team of specialists in Las Vegas, NV have helped countless women rebuild their confidence and feel more comfortable through a cosmetic breast reduction. This plastic surgery at Plastic Surgery Vegas removes excess breast fat and skin, as well as unhealthy tissue to recontour the breasts to a smaller, more balanced size. Breast reduction surgery also reconstructs the size of the nipples/areolas and repositions them so they appear normal with the new size. In most cases, a breast lift is implemented to provide a more taut and youthful appearance.
If you suffer from oversized breasts that create obstacles in your daily life, a surgical breast reduction may be a good option to achieve the silhouette you desire. This surgery is helpful for women who experience constant worry or find it difficult to lead a fulfilled and active life because of the size of their breasts. If you also have consistent skin irritations (as well as neck pain), breast reduction surgery can greatly diminish these annoyances. Our highly trained and experienced team will listen to your concerns to develop a custom treatment that aligns with your goals.
Breast Reduction Reviews
"Fantastic, it's the closest I can say to the clinic in general. Michael Edwards met all my demands haha, my result was spectacular, I was very scared that I would get a scar, but it was not like that, you can barely see the incision. I had a breast augmentation, both breasts were exactly the same size, exactly the same height and really close to each other. I love how they look, super delicate and natural, they don't look like they don't go with the body at all. He is a fantastic doctor, there was nothing that was not as I wanted it. I am very specific because I read every comment before going to this clinic and I would like my opinion to be of help to those who are looking."- J.M. / Google / Dec 04, 2021
"I had a mommy makeover (breast implants with lift, tummy tuck, labiaplasty, and mons lift) with Dr. Silver and Dr. Edwards. I'm about 6 weeks post op and have been really happy with my experience and results so far. I never have to wait long at my appointments, everyone is super friendly, and both Dr's are knowledgeable and attentive. They both explain everything in detail and never make you feel rushed. I highly recommend both of them. I'm not one for writing reviews but I know I did a ton of research before landing on Plastic Surgery Vegas. Hopefully this helps people who are researching now. You will not be disappointed."- R.C. / Google / Dec 11, 2021
"My appointment for a consultation was dated back on September 27th. After doing research for a surgeon, who dedicates to breast augmentation. I decided to see board-certified, Dr. Edwards based by his years of experiences and his past patients reviews. He helped me understand the anatomy of my chest. He explained in full colorful details what is expected before and after the surgery. October 12th was my big day!! I checked-in nervous. The moment Dr. Edwards walked in, after we went over what was to come. I will never forget what he told me. “You are in good hands, I will make them pretty, and you will be happy!!” I am 9 weeks and 1 day post op. They’re not just pretty…. Mines are perfectly pretty!!!! Recalling back after my surgery. I didn’t have any bruising. I don’t remember feeling pain. I mean… I did feel pain. I’d say 3 out of 10. Tightness that I felt, which is normal. I was told to rest and take care of me. The office is clean. The restroom are clean too. I love that there’s another waiting room at the back. All the staffs are friendly and they professionally know how to work with their patients in need. My experience over all went beyond!! One last thing Before I forget. This is a friendly warning, LOL!!!! Dr. Edwards has the most calmly voice ever!!!! his bedside manner is top notch!!!! He respectfully listen’s to you. Thank you so much Dr. Edwards and staff."- C.6. / Google / Dec 18, 2021
"My experience with Plastic Surgery Vegas, Michael Edwards, and the whole staff from the very beginning has been very welcoming. From my very first consultation I knew this was the center for me. I felt confident in my decision from the start. Walking into surgery day I was very nervous but thankfully the whole team made me feel so comfortable, and very at ease. Before I knew it surgery was done and I was well on way home. If you’re looking to get a breast augmentation this is definitely your place to go!"- P.G. / Google / Dec 11, 2021
"My breast augmentation was such a wonderful experience from start to finish, thanks to this team! I was really nervous during my first appointment and pre-op, but Dr. Edwards is so considerate and really honest about what the results will be and how to achieve what you are looking for as safely and practically as possible. The nurses, especially Cathy, are sweet as can be, constantly going above & beyond to check in and make sure you're feeling okay and that all of your questions are answered. The anesthesiologist (I don't remember his name) was outstanding as well. I would recommend this team to anyone looking to have a procedure done. You will be very well cared for and leave super happy!"- A.F. / Google / Dec 11, 2021
breast reduction Technique
Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient treatment and is conducted with general anesthesia. The timing of surgery is dependent upon a few factors, including the complexity of the incision, the overall reduction technique, and finally, how much reduction is required. The areola and nipple area repositioning is another factor. Typically, liposuction is required for fat removal to reduce breast size. During the private consultation, all of these factors are addressed with our team. The topic of scarring is also scrupulously examined and talked through as it is likely to occur. However, advanced methods have led to a decrease in the visibility of scarring. Depending on the complexity of the reduction, either an inverted-T or a vertical incision will be used. The breast tissue will be removed, and the surrounding skin and tissue will be pulled and lifted.
after your surgery
Once surgery has been completed, you will be observed closely in our quiet recovery area and then sent home to heal. A draining tube is usually inserted near the incision area to assist with bleeding and swelling. A medical sports bra will be put in place for a few days that will increase blood circulation to the breasts during the immediate recovery. In a month or so, the breasts will settle and the post-surgery effects will diminish. The majority of our patients at Plastic Surgery Vegas remark they feel much lighter and more reassured after their procedure. Following breast reduction surgery, you can buy the clothes you have always wanted and enjoy your new shape. Keep in mind, it is important to stay at a healthy body weight so the outcomes are not negatively impacted.
breast reduction faqs
Will my insurance cover breast reduction?
While our office does not accept any insurance, our staff can provide you with a copy of your operative note after surgery. You should also talk to your insurance company to find out if your specific policy might cover the surgery and the information they need to approve it. Your insurance might need measurements, like your height, weight, body mass index (BMI), and body surface area.
Will my nipples be moved?
Usually, the nipples and areola will be shifted up to a higher position on the breast during breast reduction surgery. If a significant amount of tissue and skin needs to be removed, your nipple-areola area may need to be moved. Our surgical team will choose a technique, like the anchor incision, so the nipple and areola can be moved higher on the breast. It is also possible to reduce the size of the areola with an areolatome. All of these options will be explained during your consultation so we can help you decide on the best treatment plan to meet your goals.
Can I breastfeed after a breast reduction?
Reduction surgery may affect your ability to breastfeed. While some women can still breastfeed after a surgical reduction, some cannot. It's difficult to predict whether your surgery will cause you problems with breastfeeding. For this reason, we suggest that patients wait to have the surgery until they have completed growing their family or to understand that they may not be able to breastfeed after having breast reduction surgery.
Can my breasts redevelop after surgery?
After reduction surgery, your breasts can get smaller or bigger with dramatic weight changes. This is why it's helpful to be at a healthy weight prior to your surgery that you can easily maintain. During your consultation, we will talk to you about the best ways to prepare for your surgery and what you can do afterward to ensure that your results last.
