Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty)

Disproportionately large breasts can cause a variety of issues. These range from back and neck pain to skin irritation from bra straps, but they can even increase the risk of infection and skin rash in the crease. If you’re concerned that they may be too big or are experiencing these symptoms, it may be time for a reduction mammoplasty.

Dr. Mansher Singh is a respected expert, able to make your desired results a reality while remaining natural in appearance.

Best Breast Reduction Surgery - Reduction Mammaplasty

What Is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Also called a reduction mammoplasty, it’s a cosmetic procedure that remedies asymmetry and symptoms associated with oversized breasts. Following pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight gain, women often experience growth in this area, which the procedure can easily assist with.

Dr. Singh accomplishes this by removing excess skin, fat, and glandular tissue. Not only does this provide a more proportionate figure, but it also alleviates discomfort or pain that are common side effects. The surgery can reduce the appearance of stretched areolas and large nipples, too.

All in all, these are some of the benefits that patients can experience:

  • Firmer appearance in the chest region
  • Corrected asymmetry
  • Proportionate areola and nipple size
  • Youthful silhouette

How Dr. Singh Performs Reduction Mammoplasty

Procedures relating to the chest area are typically highly customizable, and this is no exception. 3 approaches to the surgery allow Dr. Singh to treat every case uniquely. By changing where the incisions are placed, he can achieve different looks that best fit each patient’s aesthetic goals and needs.

The 3 Breast Reduction  Approaches

Anchor Breast Reduction

This approach is named after the pattern of the incisions that Dr. Singh makes. He starts by cutting around the areola, going straight down, and placing a third one along the breast’s crease. With generous access to the treatment area, he can provide the most dramatic adjustments of the 3 methods. He recommends this for patients who require significant reshaping and recontouring.

The associated scars are more noticeable than other approaches, but they tend to fade within a year. They’re also concealable with underwear and swimwear.

Lollipop Breast Reduction

Similar to the anchor breast reduction, this one is also named for the shape of the incisions. Dr. Singh begins in the same fashion but does not create a third cut on the crease. The treatment area is a little smaller and excellent for patients who only require minimal amounts of tissue and adipose removal.

Scarring appears less, and patients have an easier time hiding it with underwear and swimwear.

Liposuction Reduction

Some patients prefer a less invasive approach. Whether it’s because of a quicker downtime or only requiring minor adjustments, liposuction is the best choice for their needs. Another benefit is the lack of scarring, which is far less visible and heals quickly.

Dr. Singh emphasizes that this treatment is not suited for patients who want significant reduction.

Recovering After Your Breast Reduction

Following surgery, Dr. Singh will provide a special bra that supports the new contours and helps reduce swelling. Other immediate side effects include bruising and soreness, which tend to diminish within month 1. It may take up to half a year for swelling to fully dissipate and the results to finalize.

Over the first few weeks, patients should steer clear of physical activity and exercise. Typically, they’re able to return to work and even drive, but Dr. Singh recommends having an available friend or family member to assist in returning home. At-home care is vital, and he advises using ice packs and prescribed painkillers to stay comfortable during the recovery process.

Adhering to Dr. Singh’s guidance will lead to the best possible outcome for your surgery.

Who is a Breast Reduction Candidate?

Breasts that are too large, weighty, or asymmetric can cause physical discomfort, along with a multitude of concerns. They can even lead to emotional distress and negative self-image. These symptoms may be a good indicator that breast reduction surgery is right for you.

To Dr. Singh, a good candidate is highlighted by their understanding of the procedure and having realistic expectations for the results. Ideally, they should also be healthy non-smokers. To properly determine your candidacy, it’s recommended to consult with a qualified professional.

Breast Reduction Surgery FAQ

Is there a nonsurgical alternative?

While Dr. Singh does not offer a nonsurgical breast reduction, he often uses liposuction for a minimally invasive approach. Unlike the “lollipop” and “anchor” methods, this only involves tiny incisions and a liposuction cannula. The scars are hardly noticeable and heal much faster.

Consulting with Dr. Mansher Singh can help you find out which procedure works best for your specific needs and goals.

Can I combine this with other treatments?

Patients tend to pair breast reduction with other procedures to refresh the entire body. These commonly include upper arm lift, tummy tuck, and thigh lift. By combining multiple surgeries at once, individuals can achieve more comprehensive results while potentially saving on further costs.

One popular option is undergoing it as part of a “mommy makeover.” This is an operation that encompasses several rejuvenation treatments, perfect for reversing the signs of aging or pregnancy.

Will I feel any pain during the surgery?

Overall, the procedure typically requires 2-3 hours to complete. During this time, the patient will be sedated under general anesthesia, at the suggestion of Dr. Singh. While asleep, you should not feel any pain — though, you may encounter slight discomfort after waking up and the sedative wears off.

To help manage the pain, Dr. Singh prescribes medication. He also offers post-op care guidelines to speed up recovery and ensure patient safety.

What cup size will I be, after breast reduction?

You are in complete control of what you want to attain. In a consultation with Dr. Singh, you will share your goals and desired outcomes. Then, he will determine the best approach and see to it that patient satisfaction is achieved.

How much will it cost?

Between surgeons, the price will always be different with no single correct answer. The most basic way to estimate the cost is by evaluating the geographic location and the specific approach requested. You may even see anesthesia and operating room fees tacked on.

The best way to figure out how much the procedure will cost is to directly reach out to your chosen surgeon’s office.
