Breast Reduction in Bloomington, IL
Breast Reduction Surgery
This surgery entails removing skin and breast tissue to effectively remove mass from the breast while simultaneously lifting the breast by excising and tightening skin. The reduction in mass often reduces back/neck/shoulder pain and therefore this procedure has a significant functional component as well. Breast reduction surgery is typically one of the top 5 procedures performed in the country. Its combination of cosmetic and functional improvement makes this a procedure with a very high satisfaction rate.
What is recovery like after breast reduction surgery?
Recovery after a breast reduction is minimal primarily because this surgery doesn’t typically address muscle. Just skin, fat, and glandular tissue is excised and repositioned and so my patients typically only need pain meds for a few days.
