A consultation with Dr. Birely before your surgery can determine what techniques may be best for your desired results. Each breast reduction will be performed according to your specific needs. Although the technique will be individual to each woman’s needs, you can expect specific steps to every breast reduction procedure. First, Dr. Birely will administer either a sedative or anesthesia to perform your surgery.
Once you are sleeping, an incision will be made under the breast and upwards to your nipple. Using liposuction, extra tissue will be removed from your breasts. A breast reduction procedure may take anywhere between two to five hours. Dr. Birely may reposition the nipple before inserting drainage tubes. Patients will finally have their new, lighter breasts sutured or bandaged to maintain the desired results.
