If you are unhappy with the excess volume and weight of your breasts, a reduction mammaplasty procedure may be available to you. Also known as a breast reduction, this operation relieves the weight of heavy breasts and reduces their symptoms.
When you are preparing to undergo reduction mammaplasty, it is helpful to understand the general timeframe of the procedure. Breast reduction is expected to take around three to four hours. It can be a shorter or longer procedure depending on how much tissue is being taken out. The time it takes to perform is also impacted by the types of techniques that are being used.
To find out more about reduction mammaplasty, arrange an appointment by contacting our office. Doctors Calvin Peters and Kendall Peters, both board-certified plastic surgeons, can perform breast evaluations and create surgical plans for your procedure.
