If you experience back and neck pain from large breasts or simply want smaller, perkier breasts for cosmetic reasons, you may benefit from breast reduction surgery. The procedure is similar to a breast lift, except breast tissue is removed in addition to skin to make your breasts both smaller and perkier. The improved size and shape may help you fit into clothes better, exercise more easily and reduce back and neck strain.
The scars from breast reduction surgery are typically in an "inverted T" pattern to allow for maximal improvement in shape. The procedure can usually be performed in an outpatient setting, allowing you to go home the same day.
Where are breast reduction scars located?
The scar from breast reduction surgery is around the areola (the more pigmented area around your nipples) and down to form an upside down "T" pattern.
Can I breastfeed after a breast reduction?
Yes. It is still possible to breastfeed after a breast reduction in most cases. Since we remove some of the glandular tissue, less milk is typically produced. This may require supplementation with formula.
What will my cup size be after my breast reduction?
It is impossible to predict your exact cup size after your breast reduction, but we try to get you as close to your requested size as possible.
I had a great experience with Dr. Vennemeyer! He, his wife Andrea, and his team are absolutely professional and dedicated. I couldn’t be happier with my results! I was in the best hands throughout the process, from the initial consultation to the recovery and follow ups. I was given detailed information every time, and provided clear and straight forward answers to my many questions. I fully trust his professionalism and skills.
I highly recommend Dr. Vennemeyer to anyone considering plastic surgery. I am thrilled with my tummy tuck and liposuction results! My abdomen is tight and flat and the scar is very low and easily hidden by underwear. My belly button looks very natural and the scar is minimal. My hips curve in naturally on the sides and I don’t have any lumps from the liposuction. Dr. Vennemeyer is a skilled an caring doctor with an excellent bed side manner.
Dr. Vennemeyer was so kind and easy to talk to. He listened to my concerns and what I wanted out of the procedure and helped me figure out the best plan for my body type! The office staff was super nice as well. They definitely made me feel comfortable and explained everything in great detail. I highly recommend them to anyone in search of a plastic surgeon.
There is not enough incredible words to say how amazing Dr. Vennemeyer and his team is. From the first phone call, appointments before surgery, surgery and all my appointments after have been nothing less then amazing. I absolutely love my results! I highly recommend them to anyone.
