Breast Reduction: Overview
Wouldn’t it be nice to set yourself free from the physical and emotional baggage that comes with having large and heavy breasts? With a breast reduction from Dr. Michael W. Gray, it’s possible to live a life without neck, back/shoulder pain, and skin irritation, providing a much improved self-image.
Classic/Traditional Breast Reduction: Procedure
Dr. Michael Gray is an expert at all methods of breast reduction. If you choose the traditional approach, excess tissue is removed, the breast is reshaped, and the nipple is raised to a more natural position. Afterward, your breasts will be smaller, lifted, and will have a nicer contour. Frequently, nipple sensation and the ability to breast feed may be compromised.
After a traditional breast reduction your activity will be restricted for 3 weeks.
Scarless Breast Reduction: Procedure
During Scarless Breast Reduction your breasts are reduced via External Ultrasonic Liposuction which can also include SmartLipo MPX. During this procedure, high frequency sound waves are applied to the breast tissue so it can be removed more easily through three tiny puncture sites placed discreetly under the breast and in the armpit. Dr. Gray can also add LaserLipo using SmartLipo MPX to tighten the skin at the same time.
If a breast lift is desired to further tighten the skin, it can be combined with Scarless Breast Reduction and performed three months later. This two-stage method is very popular because unlike traditional methods, nipple sensation and breastfeeding ability is maintained, and discomfort is minimal. Often many women do not have the 2nd stage performed as they are quite happy with the scarless reduction procedure.
Scarless Breast Reduction: Recovery
After a scarless breast reduction, patients can return to work the very next day. There are no restrictions on activity. Patients report minimal to no discomfort during recovery.
