    How is Breast ReductionSurgery performed?

    Breast Reduction Surgery is performed in the operating room at a fully accredited surgical center. While you are asleep under general anesthesia breast tissue is removed and the breast skin is tightened to leave a smaller, more aesthetic. The surgery lasts about 2.5 hours. You are then brought to the recovery room to be monitored until you are ready to go home.

    Choice of incision

    Deciding which incision to use is one of the most important task during consultation. Our discussion will reveal you goals and desires for your breast size and shape. The amount of breast tissue to be removed determines the incisions available.

    After Surgery

    You will need someone to bring you home from the surgery center. The pain medication prescribed will help keep you comfortable in the days after surgery. Antibiotics will help minimize the risks of infection. Dr. Pham will keep in close contact with you after surgery and see you back in the office to examine you to make sure you are healing well. Heavy lifting and straining should be avoided after surgery until you heal completely. A support bra will provide comfort and help maintain breast position.
