Relief from Your Heavy Burden

Women with overly large breasts often have three indications for Breast Reduction surgery: aesthetic, physical, and psychological. If you are bothered by excessively large breasts, contact West Empire Aesthetics today for a consultation with Dr. Mort Rizvi. With Dr. Rizvi’s skilled approach, you can be sure you’ll stand lighter and more confident.
Remove the Excess
Our Los Angeles Breast Reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, reduces excess breast volume and lifts your breast to reposition them. Aesthetically, excessively large breasts can make even a slim-framed woman appear overweight. Physically, overly large breasts can cause back, shoulders, head, and neck pain. It can also cause secondary physical ailments such as poor blood circulation, chafing in the under-breast area, and breathing difficulty. Finally, overly large breasts can cause psychological problems such as depression and body dysmorphia. In breast reduction surgery, the surgeon removes excess tissue and overstretched ligaments and repositions the breast on the chest wall. Removing this excess tissue decreases the weight and size of the breast, giving you the relief you need.
After a Breast Reduction Los Angeles women have reported a significant reduction in back and shoulder pain, better posture, as well as less chafing and skin irritation. In addition, clothes fit better. With a breast reduction, your body will become much more proportionate. Most importantly, unwanted attention, depression, and body dysmorphia issues are often mitigated with breast reduction surgery, allowing your confidence and self-esteem to blossom.

There are several techniques to accomplish breast reduction. The type of incision utilized depends on the shape and size of your breasts and areolas, as well as the amount of reduction desired. Incisions can be made three ways: around the areola, horizontally beneath the breast fold, and vertically from the outer edge of the areola down to the breast crease below the breast. After the required amount of tissue has been removed, the nipple and areola are lifted to a higher position on the breast. Dr. Rizvi will discuss with you in detail the procedure and explain how he will perform your surgery. Breast Reduction surgery is done under general anesthetic and usually takes two to three hours.
You will be able to notice your breast reduction results almost immediately after the surgery. While there may be some swelling, this will diminish over time. You may be shocked at the initial results, especially if you have had large breasts all your life. However, you will look and feel lighter, and your physical issues will be alleviated over time. Assuming no dramatic weight fluctuations, you will be satisfied with your results for years.
Discomfort after Breast Reduction surgery is mild and can most often be alleviated by over-the-counter medications. In addition, your breasts will most likely be covered by gauze or a bra to keep them in place, and a tube may be inserted to drain any fluid buildup that might occur post-operation. You’ll be able to move normally, but you should avoid strenuous activity for the first few weeks. After that, you should plan on recovering and resting for five to seven days. Dr. Rizvi will provide detailed post-op instructions and a follow-up visit appointment schedule.
While you may reduce cup size, breast reduction is more about losing volume than reducing cup size. It is best to keep your breast size in proportion to the rest of your body and to choose wisely how much mass you want to lose, so you’re not unhappy with the results.
You will need to work with your insurance company to be sure, but sometimes the Breast Reduction procedure can be covered by insurance if the physical problems associated with overly large breasts can be verified.
