Breast Reduction

Dr. Diehl is seeing breast reduction patients

If you are considering breast reduction you already know the physical and psychological toll overly-large breasts can take. Back pain, neck pain, headaches, and breathing problems are only part of the equation. A disproportionate figure and the inability to find well-fitting, complimentary clothing can lead to dissatisfaction and diminished self-esteem.

The Procedure

Incisions for reductions follow the contour beneath the breast in the fold, around the areola, and vertically connecting the two. Dr. Diehl will then remove excess tissue, fat and skin from the breast. Next, Dr. Diehl repositions nipple, areola and underlying tissue and recontours the breast to help create a natural, smaller appearance.

The Recovery

Sutures used in breast reduction surgery are dissolvable and do not need to be removed. As with other breast surgeries, you will be released with a compression bra. While some scarring is unavoidable, with proper care, with time they will become more faint.  Most patients have mild to moderate discomfort for several days and are back to work with lifting/pushing/pulling precautions in about a week.

Breast Reduction Results

Breast reduction patients report some of the highest rates of satisfaction. The reduction of back and neck pain post-procedure coupled with the ability to wear a wider-variety of fashions contributes to increased self-esteem and self-confidence.
