About Breast Reduction
When your breast size is causing you distress and physical pain, it may be time to seek the advice of a medical professional. Large, overbearing breasts can strain your neck, back, and shoulder muscles, cause irritating skin rashes underneath your undergarments, create self-esteem issues, and much more. Having extremely disproportionate breasts to your body frame can be harmful to your physical and mental health. Women who experience life with a large chest tend to struggle with performing exercises and normal everyday tasks due to the extra weight of their bustline. This is why our experienced board-certified plastic surgeons at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa provide breast reduction services in their surgical center in Delray Beach, FL. We help women live healthy lifestyles without the burden of excessively heavy breasts causing medical issues and a decrease in the quality of life. Relieve the pain and restrictions with a breast reduction surgery.
"Dr. Schnitt is one of the few doctors who truly provides the quality of care I expect. His front office assistant (Kristin) was highly professional and very caring. Dr. Schnitt took his time to examine my son and explain everything in detail. He was extremely patient and totally thorough. I was able to contact him directly, before and after surgery. He did an amazing job fixing my son's broken nose. I am deeply grateful and I highly recommend him. JG"- D.G. / Facebook / Mar 24, 2017
"I had an amazing experience. - Dr. Goodwin performed an abdominalplasty during my hysterectomy. The scar from the incision is hardly noticeable and my stomach looks fantastic. I have dropped a dress size and I'm still swollen. Dr. Goodwin is easy to talk to and answered my questions. His staff is also fantastic. Very happy with the results."- V. / RealSelf / Aug 02, 2017

Breast reduction is appropriate if you experience:
- Disproportionate breasts to the body
- Painfully heavy breasts
- Bra strap grooves in the shoulders
- Limitations on activity
- Slumped posture
What to Expect
During a reduction mammaplasty, the surgeon will skillfully remove excess skin and tissue before re-contouring the breasts. The surgeon can choose to implement these incision patterns:
- Incision around the circumference of the areola
- Vertical incision from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast line
- Horizontal incision on the breast line
Liposuction may also be used to safely remove excessive tissue in the breast and will minimize scarring as it requires a much smaller incision. It also reduces the risk of losing nipple sensation and discoloration of the areola due to poor blood flow during surgery. The surgeon will discuss the difference between the techniques and help you determine which is best for your needs and goals.
After breast reduction surgery, you may feel immediately lighter, due to the amount of tissue removed. After the surgery, you should wear a compression bra to support the healing process for the first couple of weeks. You will also be given post-operative care instructions and you can pre-schedule your follow up appointments to help you stay on track during your recovery process. You will need to rest for at least 7 – 10 days before returning to work. Regular physical activities can be resumed within 6 – 8 weeks. In some patients, it may take a year for nipple sensitivity to return to normal.
