Breast Reduction

Aside from achieving a more proportionate figure, breast reduction can ease the burden heavy breasts place on the back and shoulders.

When Should I Get Breast Reduction?

Heavy, hanging breasts can become a major burden and prevent you from enjoying sports, buying clothes, and feeling comfortable with yourself. Breast reduction surgery may be the solution to achieving better proportion and comfort for oversized breasts that make a woman appear heavier than she really is.

What To Expect During Surgery:

Dr. Lorenc begins with an anchor-shaped incision that circles the areola, extends downward, and follows the natural curve of the crease beneath the breast.  Upon making the necessary incisions, Dr. Lorenc proceeds to remove excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin, and moves the nipple and areola into their new position. The skin is then closed from both sides of the breast down and around the areola, shaping the new contour of the breast. In most cases, the nipples remain attached to their blood vessels and nerves.

Stitches are usually located around the areola, in a vertical line extending downward, and along the lower crease of the breast, if necessary. Other techniques eliminate the horizontal portion of the scar entirely, so the scars are only around the nipple and vertical. Dr. Lorenc always strives to use the most minimal incision pattern possible to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing and natural looking results.
