Have you have always been unhappy with your heavy, over-sized breasts? They can be physically uncomfortable, often causing neck, shoulder, and back pain. Large breasts can also make you feel self-conscious by drawing unwanted attention. Breast reduction surgery in Albany at The Plastic Surgery Group can free you from the physical and emotional pain and help you move more freely and confidently.
The surgeons at The Plastic Surgery Group usually perform bresst reduction with an anchor-shaped incision. This incision resembles the shape of a boat anchor as it traces the areola, drops down, and follows the curve below the breast. Through the incision, your plastic surgeon will remove the extra tissue, fat, and skin that have caused your breasts to be too large. Your surgeon will also reposition the nipple and areola and will shape the breasts around them, giving you a new, firmer contour. Sometimes, liposuction is used to eliminate extra fatty tissue from under the arms. When the breasts are very large or have extreme sagging, both the nipples and areolas are usually repositioned through grafting.
