Breast Reduction - San Antonio, Texas
Women with disproportionately large breasts can experience significant back and neck pain, painful bra strap grooves on the tops of their shoulders, and extreme self-consciousness in social situations. Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, reduces the size of breasts through the removal of excess fat, skin, and other tissue. The result is less pain and an improved quality of life.
Our board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Sheryl Pilcher, offers state-of-the-art breast reduction to those from San Antonio, Texas. If you would like to visit our San Antonio practice for a breast reduction consultation, contact Accent Plastic Surgery, P.A. today.
Your Breast Reduction Consultation
Your candidacy for breast reduction will be assessed during an initial consultation with Dr. Pilcher. You will have the opportunity to ask any questions or share any concerns that you have. Most women who are experiencing pain as a result of overly large breasts are candidates for breast reduction surgery.
The Breast Reduction Procedure
Breast reduction is typically performed under general anesthesia. While the type of incision depends on each patient's individual needs, the "anchor" incision is the most common. This incision is made around the nipple, then down the breast, and across the breast crease. Through this incision, Dr. Pilcher removes the necessary skin and tissue, moves the remaining tissue upward, and repositions the nipple to ensure the most natural-looking results possible.
