Nashville Breast Reduction
Some women have breasts that are much too large for their body frame. Overly large breasts can cause back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and improper posture. For some women, having large breasts also affects their self-esteem and self-image.
If you are suffering from problems related to overly large breasts, breast reduction surgery may be just what you need. Many women who undergo a breast reduction find they are able to lead a more comfortable life, in addition to enjoying natural-looking breasts that are more proportionate to their bodies.
How is a Breast Reduction Performed in Nashville?
Breast Reduction tends to take about 2 hours, and involves removing fat, excess skin and glandular tissue from the breast. Breast reductions are typically performed under general anesthesia, so you'll be sleeping throughout the procedure. After the skin, fat and tissue are removed, Dr. Hueneke tightens the skin to produce smaller, firmer breasts that are proportionate to your body.
Stiches may remain around the areola area in a vertical line beneath the nipple and horizontally under the breast. However, if your breasts are not overly large, it is possible to avoid the horizontal scar altogether.
