Breast Reduction

Breast Reductions Surgery in Tampa

Women with larger breasts often struggle with a wide array of physical and mental issues. Back, neck and shoulder pain are just a few of the concerns that can make life more difficult when the breasts are much larger and disproportionate to the rest of the body. If larger breasts are negatively influencing your lifestyle and causing you pain, you may be right for a breast reduction procedure.

Dr. Stan Castor performs breast reduction surgery at Artisan Aesthetics Plastic Surgery & Laser Center. As a board certified plastic surgeon in Tampa, Dr. Castor can perform a breast reduction to achieve a more balanced size of the breasts, while also achieving a beautiful and natural appearance.

Is a Breast Reduction Right for Me?

Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and loose skin to achieve a breast size that is in proportion with your body. This helps to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts. Overly large breasts can cause some women to have both health and emotional problems. In addition to self-image issues, you may also experience physical pain and discomfort. The weight of excess breast tissue can hinder your ability to lead an active lifestyle. The emotional discomfort and self-consciousness often associated with having large breasts is as important an issue to many women as the physical discomfort and pain.

Breast reduction surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.

Breast reduction is a good option for you if:

  • You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too large
  • Your breasts limit your physical activity
  • You experience back, neck and shoulder pain caused by the weight of your breasts
  • You have regular indentations from bra straps that support heavy, pendulous breasts
  • You have skin irritation beneath the breast crease
  • Your breasts hang low and have stretched skin
  • Your nipples rest below the breast crease when your breasts are unsupported
  • You have enlarged areolas caused by stretched skin

Your new breast size should help relieve you from the pain and physical limitations experienced prior to breast reduction. Your better-proportioned figure will likely enhance your self-image and boost your self-confidence. However, over time your breasts can still change due to aging, weight fluctuations, hormonal factors, and gravity. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to ensure your results last a very long time.

How is a Breast Reduction Performed?

Dr. Castor will perform your breast through an anchor-shaped incision going around the areola, downward, and along the crease beneath your breast. Depending on your condition, liposuction may be used to remove stubborn areas of excess fat. Dr. Castor will achieve your desired size by removing any excess breast tissue and excess skin. He can also resize the areola in case it has become outstretched or elongated over time.

Surgery Time: 3 hours
Back to Work In: 2-3 weeks
Results Last: The breasts will remain at their new size with healthy lifestyle choices.
