All New Jersey women are born with some degree of asymmetrical or misshapen breasts. Some of these women also have naturally large breasts that they simply don’t want, either due to the back, neck and shoulder pain they cause, or the unwanted attention they bring. Many of these women with large natural breasts seek out Dr. Comizio for a breast reduction. And, when they come into Dr. Comizio’s office for a consultation, they’re looking to both reduce the size of their breasts, and also to get the shape, symmetry, and aesthetics they’ve always desired.
Reshaping the Breasts Via Breast Reduction
Some New Jersey women think a breast reconstruction simply means eliminating tissue from the breast. That just isn’t the case. Dr. Comizio’s goal in a breast reconstruction surgery isn’t merely to give you a certain desired cup size, but she also wants to provide you with the shape, contour, and silhouette you’ve always wanted. Depending on your unique case, Dr. Comizio may use a number of different techniques to achieve your requested results, including:
- Making either one or multiple incisions on your breast skin to access your breast tissue;
- Removing excess breast tissue and skin;
- Performing liposuction to recontour and reshape your breasts; and
- Repositioning the nipple to a more appealing, natural looking location.
Because every New Jersey breast reduction patient is unique, there is no one-size-fits-all formula for this procedure. Your breast reduction plan will depend on your particular anatomy, including your natural breast size and your expectations for how they should appear on your frame, and your wishes for your breasts’ shape and contour.
Recovering from Breast Reduction Surgery
While a breast reconstruction is typically an outpatient procedure performed at a New Jersey surgical center, certain recovery instructions must be followed. These include:
- Arranging for a ride home on the day of your surgery, as you will not be able to drive yourself home due to the strong anesthesia you will receive during your surgery to put you to sleep;
- Taking about a week off of work or school so you can have adequate rest time at home after your procedure;
- Taking your pain medication exactly as prescribed, even if that means having to wake up in the middle of the night to take a dose;
- Wearing the surgical bra that Dr. Comizio gives you all day long to reduce swelling until she tells you otherwise; and.
- Abstaining from smoking, as tobacco use can complicate your healing process (and the breast reduction surgery, too).
