Breast Reduction

For many women, big breasts have a negative effect on the health, quality of life and self-esteem. Breast reduction, improves the overall appearance to make women more proportional to the rest of her body. Large, heavy breasts often interfere with normal physical activity and cause neck and back pain.

Breast reduction in special cases is considered a reconstructive plastic surgery procedure.

Besides relieving the physical problems, this procedure improves the shape of your breasts and nipples. Removing excess tissue and fat, the breast is less sculpted and shaped. The nipples are relocated, remaining attached to its blood supply and nerves so the sensitivity isn’t lost. In some cases, Dr. Elizabeth Ruiz will use liposuction to remove fat in and around the breast.

This operation can be performed in young women who have not yet had children. A consultation with Dr. Ruiz will help you understand the impact of the reduction of excessively large breasts and find the best time in the life of a woman for surgery. Most patients’ incisions heal well with time after breast reduction, but visible scars are compensation to improve the proportion and physical quality of life, the scars are very discrete because they are located in the undergarment areas.

This operation is preferably performed when a woman is close to their normal body weight, because weight fluctuations affect long-term results of this procedure.
