Breast Reduction

in Reno, Nevada

"Dr. Janiga is an awesome surgeon and his staff is great. Always very happy to be in their office." - LE

The Procedure

Dr. Timothy Janiga performs breast reductions at Reno-area outpatient surgery centers using general anesthesia. The procedure involves removing fat and other tissue to create lighter, more proportionate breasts. During the procedure, the areola may be reduced in size and repositioned as well in order to naturally fit the newly shaped and resized breast.

The two most common types of breast reductions Dr. Timothy Janiga performs are a traditional “anchor” shape or a “vertical” breast reduction.

The “anchor” shape breast reduction is typically performed for larger breast reductions, whereas the “vertical” reduction is typically reserved for smaller-to-moderate size breast reductions.

Both techniques serve to remove excess skin and glandular tissue as well as repositioning the areola to a more youthful and natural position for the newly shaped and resized breast.

This procedure takes between one and three hours with another two hours of recovery time before you leave the surgery center.

Breast Reduction

A breast reduction is used to help women who struggle with breasts that are too large.

At Janiga MDs, Dr. Timothy Janiga specializes in plastic surgery and Dr. Jennifer Janiga specializes in dermatology, giving their practice a unique, comprehensive perspective on their patients’ cosmetic needs in the Reno, Nevada area.

Recovery & Results

You can expect some swelling and minimal bruising for up to three weeks after the procedure. Full results are expected within three to six months.
