NJ Breast Reduction

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and, depending on the individual and the techniques used, takes two to four hours to complete. There are two possible incisions the doctor can use to extract the tissue and fat from the breast. The first is a Vertical incision which involves placing well-concealed incisions around the areola and a vertical incision in the lower portion of the breast which leaves a minimally visible scar. These types of incisions are ideal for large-breasted women. The second incision is traditional and involves creating a vertical and horizontal incision which is the preferred technique used for women with extremely large breasts. These incisions allow the removal of skin, fat, and tissues from the lower breast as well as possible nipple and areola repositioning.

After the procedure, you will experience some soreness, swelling, and bruising for several days. After two days, your bandages will be removed and you will be required to wear a surgical bra. Physical activity should be limited for the first two weeks and exercise avoided for at least four weeks. After two or three weeks, your stitches are removed and you will be able to return to work. The results of surgery will be immediately visible and will continue to improve as swelling, bruising, and scarring subside.
