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.

What are the benefits of breast reduction surgery?

At Northside Plastic Surgery, our breast reduction in Alpharetta combines the latest surgical techniques for long-lasting breast resizing and reshaping. Our goal is to give you breasts that not only look beautiful and amazing, but also retain their perkiness and shape for many years to come. With breast reduction surgery at our conveniently located Alpharetta plastic surgery center, we can help alleviate:

  • Physical and mental discomfort
  • Physical pain
  • Low self-esteem
  • Difficulty with physical activity or exercise

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.

Re-Opening May 4th Update:

As a valued member of the Northside Plastic Surgery family, I want to personally update you on steps our practice has taken to protect you and your health in light of the COVID-19 situation.

As it has always been, the safety and health of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. As your physician, I want to thank you for your support and the confidence you have in our practice. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken the basic CDC recommendations and have added the following extra measures to protect our patients:

  1. We are waiving our $150 fee for Virtual Consultations for new and established patients.
  2. We ask all patients to stay in their car and call us upon arrival. Once on-site, your temperature will be taken along with a screening questionnaire, you will be provided hand sanitizer, and then escorted directly to an exam room or empty reception area. We ask all patients to wear a surgical mask or face covering to their appointment. As a high-end practice, we are taking advantage of our large size and multiple VIP waiting areas to maximize social distancing.
  3. We are performing regular and careful screening of patients with a bias for suspicion that a patient might have the coronavirus.
  4. All staff are screened daily with a temperature check and symptom survey. All staff are required to wear a surgical mask, gloves, and perform frequent hand washing.
  5. We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas hourly (including lobbies, furniture, elevators, door handles, exam chairs, public bathrooms, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant. All exam rooms and highly touched surfaces are sanitized in between patients.
  6. Because of the increased sanitizing requirements, we have reduced the number of patients that will be seen every hour and spacing out appointments.
  7. Since we have our own fully accredited on-site surgery center, we do not have actively infected patients using our operating rooms such as in hospitals. This provides a great security blanket for our patients. We are currently performing at full capacity and completely prepared to perform all scheduled surgeries and procedures and are taking all necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being.
  8. We are postponing all advanced training sessions for visiting physicians and providers until June.
  9. We ask that all patients with upper respiratory symptoms such as cough, fever, shortness of breath to please reschedule your appointments and call your family doctor.
  10. For more, you can always find up-to-date and accurate information on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.

Thank you for being a loyal patient. We will remain attentive to this situation and keep you updated on any changes with the practice. We are privileged to serve you and look forward to seeing you soon.
