What is a breast reduction?
If your breasts are uncomfortably large, then you’ve undoubtedly been suffering from persistent pain in your neck and shoulders, unwelcomed stares from strangers, and difficulty exercising. When your breasts are out of proportion from the rest of your body, so much of your life is affected, including how you dress and how you feel about your self-image. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Breast reduction surgery is an option that has already changed the lives – for the better – of many women in the Greater Atlanta and Alpharetta area. To schedule arguably the best breast reduction Atlanta and Alpharetta, GA have to offer, contact Northside Plastic Surgery. Overly large breasts can damage more than your self-esteem. For instance, bra straps can often leave indentations in the shoulder area because of the weight of the breasts. Or, even worse, large breasts can cause skeletal deformities, skin irritations, nerve compression, and problems with posture.

If you suffer from any of these symptoms, or you are simply unhappy with the large size of your breasts, then breast reduction surgery is something worth considering. Our team will craft a surgical plan based on your goals and expectations.
Breast reduction surgery may be performed by a variety of techniques. If the scar can be minimized in length or direction, Dr. Marc Klein will discuss your options at consultation. Excess tissue and skin is to achieve the desired size and shape. If needed, liposuction can be used to remove excess fat in the bra roll and other areas.
What can I expect from my recovery?
Our breast reduction procedures are performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. Following surgery, your chest will be bandaged, and you may be sent home in a surgical bra. You will be prescribed pain medication to help keep you comfortable during this initial period.
The amount of time you need to recover from breast reduction surgery will depend on your natural healing rate as well as the extent of surgery performed. You will be able to get up and walk around the same day of surgery, although you should have a trusted adult with you during the first 24 hours.
Most patients feel ready to drive and return to a desk job within one week, after they are no longer taking prescription pain medication. It will likely be three to four weeks before you are able to resume normal exercise.
