Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction in Boca Raton, FL

Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammaplasty, is a surgery to correct large breasts for women uncomfortable with their size. Women often complain that their large breasts feel heavy and they cannot maintain good posture. Or they feel their breasts make them look overweight. Many times, the complaint is that because they are cumbersome, physical activity is limited. Whatever the reason, breast reduction is the ideal surgery to help a woman increase her self-confidence and increase her activity level.

Dr. Albert Dabbah, Boca Raton’s leading board-certified plastic surgeon, has nearly 30 years of experience performing breast reductions on women of all ages and all sizes. His reputation for patient safety and exceptional results is the reason Boca Raton’s community refers to him time and again.

Your Breast Reduction Consultation

Your consultation with Dr. Dabbah is the first step toward a boost in your self-confidence. During the consultation, Dr. Dabbah will review your medical history, including any previous breast surgery, and ask you what your concerns are regarding your breasts and what you hope to achieve, including breast size. He does an exam of the breast, looking at nipple position and elasticity of the skin and assessing the weight of the breasts. He will take some measurements of the breasts and the areolas. He then is able to come up with a treatment plan. Dr. Dabbah’s goal is to achieve the size that you envision while keeping in mind your body shape. He will always provide his patients with an honest assessment.

What Does Breast Reduction Surgery Involve?

Under general anesthesia in an outpatient surgery center, Dr. Dabbah makes incisions, as discussed in the consultation. An incision is made around the areola and down the center of the breast to the crease of the breast. There is usually an incision made along the crease of the breast; the length depends on the size of the reduction. Through those incisions, Dr. Dabbah removes breast tissue, fat, and skin and reshapes the breast to a more youthful and attractive position. The areolas are reduced and lifted to a higher position on the smaller, more aesthetic breast. Dr. Dabbah uses internal sutures to support the breast in its new position and surgical glue and tape to close the skin. You will wake up in the recovery room. Once alert, you will be discharged. You will need a friend or family member to drive you home.

Ideal Candidates for Breast Reduction

Women may have breast reduction surgery at any age. It is recommended, however, that your breasts have finished developing before considering the surgery. This generally occurs between the ages of 17 and 22.

Yes, there will be scars around the areola and down toward the breast crease. There may also be a scar along the crease of the breast, depending on the size of the reduction. Dr. Dabbah sees you in the office for many months to monitor those scars. They will fade over time.

Many men and boys have enlarged breasts, called gynecomastia. Dr. Dabbah does perform gynecomastia surgery to reduce the size of the breasts, an excellent option for men who have attempted to reduce the size of their breasts through diet and exercise.

Depending on the size of the reduction, you may or may not be able to breastfeed following the surgery. If you haven’t had children prior to your reduction, we don’t know if you would be able to, regardless. Please discuss this concern in consultation with Dr. Dabbah.

Most patients do not lose total nipple sensation. There may be an increase or decrease in sensation. If there is heightened sensation, Dr. Dabbah suggests gently touching to decrease the feeling over time. If there is a decrease in sensation, this usually improves as you heal.
