Breast Reduction Surgery

Your Breast Reduction Procedure

The Breast Reduction procedure is performed on an outpatient basis under general or local anesthesia. The time it takes to perform the procedure will depend on the size of the breasts, the amount of sagging that exists, and the technique used. After anesthesia is delivered, Dr. Jazayeri will make the necessary incisions in the breasts to remove any excess skin and tissue. If needed, the nipples may also be resized and/or repositioned. The doctor will then close the incisions with sutures. It is always recommended the removed breast tissue be sent for pathology for examination.

Additional Reading

The location of the incisions will depend on the amount of correction needed and the technique used. The most common techniques include:

Donut: An incision goes around the areola.

Lollipop: An incision goes around the areola and then vertically from the base of the areola to the breast crease.

Anchor: An incision goes around the areola, then vertically from the base of the areola to the breast crease, and then horizontally along the breast crease.

During your initial consultation for breast reduction Santa Ana plastic surgeon, Dr. Jazayeri, will help determine the technique that will best meet your needs and desires.

Breast Reduction Results

Although you will see an immediate improvement in the shape and size of your breasts, it may take three to six months to see the final results of your breast reduction. You may expect your results to last many years as long as you don’t become pregnant and maintain a healthy weight. Most women are much more comfortable and feel a renewed sense of confidence knowing that their breasts are in better proportion with the rest of their body.

Say Goodbye to Discomfort

Breast Reduction Recovery and Aftercare

When the breast reduction is complete, bandages will be placed over the incisions, and a compression garment will be wrapped around the chest to reduce swelling. Since you will still be under the effects of anesthesia, you will need someone to drive you home from the facility. Prescribed medication can be taken to alleviate any discomfort that exists during the first few days. Most patients are able to return to work after about a week of downtime.

Procedures Under Local Anesthesia
with Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri

Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri, a distinguished plastic surgeon in Santa Ana, California, strongly advocates for patient comfort and safety during all procedures. His comprehensive approach to patient care includes using local anesthesia for various surgical procedures.

Local anesthesia is a type of anesthetic used to numb a specific area of the body where a surgical procedure will be performed. It allows the patient to remain awake and comfortable while avoiding the potential risks and side effects associated with general anesthesia. In Dr. Jazayeri's hands, an array of procedures can be carried out under local anesthesia, often leading to quicker recovery times and lower complication rates. These procedures include many facelifts, liposuctions, neck lifts, Brazilian butt lifts (BBLs), mini tummy tuck and, in certain cases, even breast and arm lift.

By taking advantage of local anesthesia's potential, Dr. Michael A. Jazayeri strives to make cosmetic and reconstructive surgery more accessible, comfortable, and patient-centered. His commitment to this safe anesthesia approach in Santa Ana, California, signals a new era in plastic surgery where patient comfort and safety are at the forefront.
