Is Breast Reduction for Me?
Our breast reduction in Norfolk may be helpful for women who experience soreness in the back, neck, and shoulders, or who suffer from painful indentations due to bra straps. Women who want a smaller breast size and improved breast shape can also benefit from a breast reduction.
During Your Procedure
This procedure is typically done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. A "lollipop" incision is usually made around the nipple/areola, which extends down to the breast fold. There may or may not be a scar in the fold. Excess skin, breast tissue, and fat are then removed. Dr. Hubbard reshapes the underlying breast tissue and repositions the nipple. In some cases, liposuction may be used to reduce breast weight with less scarring.
Healing after Surgery
A dressing is placed on the breasts for just one day, and any initial discomfort is controlled with oral medication. Most patients can return to work within 1 week, and the sutures dissolve on their own. Any pinkness of the scars usually fades in the first year.
A Complete Makeover
A breast reduction in Virginia Beach with Dr. Hubbard always includes a breast lift to provide support and improve the position of the breasts. Liposuction or a tummy tuck are also popular choices for women who want body reshaping benefits.
