Relieve Pain and Enhance Appearance with Breast Reduction
Dr. Green performs breast reduction surgery for individuals with heavy or large breasts, often alleviating associated neck, back, and shoulder pain. Many insurance companies cover this procedure due to its potential to improve quality of life.
Who Can Benefit from Breast Reduction Surgery?
Ideal candidates for breast reduction surgery have fully developed, large, heavy, or droopy breasts. Dr. Green can remove excess skin, tissue, and fat to lift and reduce breast size, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
In some cases, a slight reduction in size combined with a breast lift may be performed, but this is typically considered cosmetic and not covered by insurance. Insurance providers require a minimum amount of breast tissue to be removed for coverage.
Minimizing Scars and Ensuring Excellent Results
Dr. Green’s meticulous and careful surgical technique aims to minimize visible scarring. Over time, scars fade and become thin, pale lines.
Breast reduction surgery is usually performed in an outpatient surgery center, and patients return home afterward. Dr. Green doesn’t typically use drains and relies on dissolving sutures for this procedure.
