What is a Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty)?
A Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty) is a type of cosmetic plastic surgery the removes breast tissue to decrease size making breasts lighter and firmer.
The request for breast reduction is typically because of chronic back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain or chronic rashes under the breasts. This is a procedure that requires removal of breast tissue and skin, relocation of the nipple and recreation of the skin brassiere. Dr. Felice finds this procedure very challenging in that all breast sizes and shapes are very different and creating new, smaller breasts tests his sculpting abilities. He is very gratified to see a patient afterward with relief of many of their back symptoms and enjoyment of their new size and shape.
As compared to older techniques, Dr. Felice has perfected the shaping of the breasts and minimizing the scars associated with the procedure. Elimination of the long incision beneath the breast extending from the outer chest to the breast bone (stermum) is paramount to minimizing the scarring.
