What is Breast Reduction?
Despite the stereotype that large breasts are a desirable trait, that’s not always true. Sometimes they can cause serious problems. For some women, the physical discomfort that comes with larger breasts can be overwhelming. Others can become self-conscious because of their breasts and seek to reduce their size.
A breast reduction from Janiga MDs can go a long way toward resolving these issues.
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.
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.
