Breast Reduction in Ft. Myers
Breast reduction (also known as reduction mammoplasty) helps women achieve a healthier, more proportionate balance to their body by removing breast tissue, skin, and fat. The procedure does more than just reduce the size of the breasts – it also gives a lifting effect to improve breast appearance. Some women with large breast have a hard time deciding how much smaller they would like their breasts to be. During your consultation, Dr. Gardner will examine your breasts and offer his recommendation for a post-surgical size that will be more comfortable and still maintain an attractive overall body shape. During your breast enhancement in Ft. Myers, in addition to Dr. Gardner's surgical skill, you will be cared for by a highly-trained staff.
Your Breast Reduction Procedure
This procedure is performed under general anesthesia. During breast reduction surgery, Dr. Gardner begins by making an anchor-shaped incision on the lower part of the breast and around the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple). Short-Scar techniques are also available. Through this incision he removes excess fat, tissue, and skin. The nipple is repositioned on the breast, with Dr. Gardner using methods that preserve nipple sensation whenever possible. Fort Myers and Naples cosmetic surgery patients should expect to take about 1 to 2 weeks before they resume normal activities, with more strenuous activities being added back in after 3 to 4 weeks. Some scarring will remain, but scars fade out substantially for most patients over time.
