What is Breast Reduction?
Breast augmentation to make the breasts larger is one of the most popular plastic surgeries in the United States, but many other women choose to make their breasts smaller each year for a number of different reasons. Breast reduction, or reduction mammaplasty, is performed to permanently reduce the size of large, heavy, or pendulous breasts to make them lighter and firmer and to improve their shape.
Why patients choose Breast Reduction Surgery
Breast reduction is typically considered to be cosmetic surgery, as it is performed by a plastic surgeon. However, the procedure is often performed for functional reasons alone or to gain both functional and aesthetic benefits.
Women with large breasts often suffer from physical symptoms like chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain, due to the weight of their breasts. Some patients find that their bra strap digs into their shoulders or they have trouble exercising comfortably. After a reduction procedure, many patients can exercise and enjoy other everyday activities pain-free.
Patients who choose breast reduction can also benefit from cosmetic benefits. Many women with very large breasts have nipples that point downward or a pendulous breast shape, due to the strain that heavy breast tissue places on the ligaments. A breast reduction can reshape the breasts while simultaneously reducing breast size, allowing women to feel more confident in their appearance.
Women often feel self-conscious about having overly large breasts and may have trouble finding clothing that fits. A breast reduction procedure can help a woman feel more comfortable in her own skin and boost her confidence. Every breast reduction patient has her own reasons for choosing to move forward with the procedure, but most patients cite a number of different factors in their ultimate decision.

Ideal Candidates for Breast Reduction
The best candidates for breast reduction in Miami are women with large breasts who are experiencing chronic physical symptoms caused by heavy breast tissue or are suffering from emotional distress due to their breast size. Good candidates may include women who are having trouble participating in physical activities due to the interference of their breasts or those who have discussed chronic pain related to breast size with their primary care doctor.
Women who are interested in cosmetic surgery procedures should be in good health, be non-smokers or willing to quit, and have realistic expectations for their results. Young women in their late teens may need to wait until their breasts have fully matured to undergo this procedure. Women who are planning to have additional children may also want to wait until they have completed their families, as subsequent pregnancies can affect breast size.
A Breast Reduction consultation with Dr. Salloum
Before you can schedule your breast reduction, you will need to meet with Dr. Salloum at the Miami Center for Plastic Surgery to discuss your goals, expectations, and health history. We offer our patients a spa-like, stress-free experience, including complimentary valet services and private, complimentary consultations in our beautiful office.
Dr. Salloum will encourage you to ask questions throughout the consultation and will ask you to share your goals for the procedure. He will go over your health information to ensure that you are healthy enough for surgery and ask about any medical conditions or current medications.
Once he has determined your candidacy, he will go over the procedure with you in detail and suggest a treatment plan. He may recommend a breast reduction alone, or discuss combination procedures that could help you reach your goals. Many women benefit from combining a breast reduction with a breast lift for a firmer, more youthful-looking appearance.
The consultation is an ideal opportunity for you to determine if breast reduction surgery is the right fit for your needs.

The Breast Reduction procedure in Miami Beach
Dr. Gabriel Salloum performs breast reductions in Miami Beach on an outpatient basis using either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. This will be discussed during the consultation.
Once the anesthesia has been administered, Dr. Salloum will make the incisions. Although there are a few different incision patterns that may be used to perform breast reduction surgery, the lollipop technique is one of the most common. This involves an incision around the areola of each breast and extending down to the crease, creating a pattern that looks like a lollipop. Some patients who need less excess breast tissue removed may only need the incision around the areola, while more extensive cases may require an additional incision in the breast crease.
After the incisions are made, Dr. Salloum removes excess breast tissue, skin, and fat. He reshapes the breasts and may reposition the nipples if necessary. Finally, the incisions are closed and dressings are used to cover the incisions. Most patients return home on the same day, though they will need a ride home.
Recovery & downtime after Breast Reduction
After breast reduction surgery, patients should wear a special surgical bra as directed. This should be worn for several weeks, and a regular soft bra should be worn for several weeks after that as it is essential to gently support the new breast contour.
Some bruising, swelling, and discomfort are normal during the initial recovery. Pain medications will be prescribed to help ensure a smooth and pain-free healing process. Patients should take 1-2 weeks off from work or school and will need to postpone strenuous activities for 4-6 weeks.
Light activity, such as walking, will help encourage proper healing during the first few weeks. Dr. Salloum will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, which should be followed closely for optimal results and to reduce the risk of complications.
