Breast Reduction Surgery

breast augementationBreast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty in Athens, is for a woman experiencing health problems and/or extreme self-consciousness associated with very large, heavy breasts. Medical problems associated with large breasts include back and neck pain caused by the excessive weight, skin irritation, bra strap indentations, poor posture, and interference with normal daily activities such as exercise. The surgery removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and firmer. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. This surgery can alleviate the health problems associated with large breasts and improve a woman’s confidence in her appearance. Reduction mammaplasty is often covered by insurance.

Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure. It is done under general anesthesia and typically takes 2-3 hours. Patients will need to limit strenuous upper body activity and wear a sports bra for several weeks after surgery. The scars go around the areola, straight down as a vertical line to the inframammary crease, and then horizontally in the crease under the breasts. Through these incisions, excess skin and tissue are removed and the nipple areolar complex is repositioned higher.

Fantastic practice, with responsive and caring staff who take time to answer as many questions as I might have (both pre-op and post-op). While conveying experience and confidence in his knowledge, Dr. Parker truly listened and was sensitive to my needs/wants for my breast reduction. Visits were helpful, informative, and among the most pleasant Dr.’s office visits I have ever experienced. Highly recommend!
