In Atlanta


Breast Reduction

Breast reduction or mammoplasty is a procedure that decreases the volume of breasts to create a balanced, well-proportioned figure. The procedure has helped many women regain control of their lives, as having enlarged breast tissue can be physically and emotionally taxing. The constant neck and back pain causes undue hardship that can make simple tasks seem like a chore. The procedure simply gets rid of excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin that will make your chest consistent with your overall body shape. Take the first step in enjoying life again and schedule a consultation with dual board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Arslanian in Atlanta. Our main goal at Arslanian Plastic Surgery is to help every patient who walks into our door leave with a beautiful, natural look that they can be proud of.

Comfort Meets Aesthetics

What is a Breast Reduction?

A Reduction Mammaplasty (Breast Reduction) is a surgical procedure that reduces the size and volume of a woman’s breasts. By removing the excess breast tissue, fat, and skin, dual-board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Arslanian, helps his patients achieve more proportionately balanced breasts in relation to their overall physical anatomy.

Whether you desire a more manageable breast size or wish to alleviate the physical and emotional burdens associated with large breasts, breast reduction can help you achieve your goals and enjoy a more comfortable and confident life. Further, the procedure takes the weight off their shoulders by removing excess skin, fat, and tissue from the breast. Some skin may be removed from the breast using liposuction or surgical incision. The remaining tissue is then redistributed and shaped into a smaller breast profile. 

Some of the more common reasons women choose to receive a breast reduction include:

  • Back, neck, or shoulder pain caused by the weight of their breasts
  • Breasts that are too large in proportion to the body frame
  • Increasing breast symmetry after a mastectomy
  • Get indentations in their shoulders from tight bra straps
  • Must restrict physical activity due to the size and weight of their breasts
  • One breast is larger than the other
  • Suffering from skin irritation beneath their breasts

Your experience with Dr. Arslanian and his staff will be nothing short of excellence. From the moment you walk into our offices in Jonesboro or Brookhaven for your consultation, you will be treated with compassion and respect.

 To create the best and safest experience possible, we will give you preoperative instructions to allow for a smooth and safe operation. Patients are advised to stop smoking and drinking for a few days before and after surgery to avoid complications. You may also be directed to stop taking certain medications and supplements. Make sure to designate a loved one or care buddy to drive you home and take care of you for the first day after your operation.

All these details and more will be discussed during your initial consultation.

What to expect on the day of Breast Reduction surgery

On the day of your operation, you’ll meet with Dr. Arslanian before your procedure. Once all final items are complete, you will be able to rest comfortably throughout the process. During the procedure, Dr. Arslanian will make an incision. The exact method will depend on the extent of your condition. There are two main techniques for a mammaplasty:

 Vertical or “Lollipop”

An incision is made around the areola. It connects with a second incision made vertically from the bottom of the areola to the crease underneath the breast. This is reserved for moderate cases.

Inverted-T or Anchor

This procedure is for patients with considerable sagging. An incision is made around the areola that connects with another incision made within the crease that forms an inverted “T”.

 After the incision, he will then remove excess tissue, skin, and fat deposits that reduce the overall weight and volume of the breasts. He will then redirect the breast tissue so that he can recontour your chest area.

Breast Reduction recovery

Since this is an outpatient procedure, you will be able to go home the same day. Patients may experience some post-op pain. We will prescribe medication to alleviate your discomfort. You will be given a compression garment to maintain the integrity of the results. It should go away within a week after your procedure. Dr. Aslanian will instruct you to perform motion exercises during your first week so that your shoulders won’t tighten up. We will schedule a follow-up appointment after your first week after surgery to ensure the recovery process is going according to plan. During this, the garment and other dressing will be removed.

Most people can resume normal activities within two weeks. You can go back to work within 3-7 days.
