If you are a Denver or Centennial area woman, and you have large breasts, breast reduction surgery is a procedure that can ease discomfort while helping you attain a breast size that is proportionate to your physique. Also known as a reduction mammoplasty, breast reduction is performed by Dr. Jennifer Emmett, board-certified by the American Board of Surgery and practicing at Emmett Plastic Surgery in Lone Tree. The procedure removes excess skin, tissue, and fat from the breasts, giving you smaller, more manageable breasts.
What is Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction surgery can be a life-enhancing surgery for many women who have struggled with physical discomfort, self-consciousness, or limitations to physical activities due to the size of their breasts. Overly large breasts can cause chronic back problems as well as shoulder and neck pain, excess bra strap pressure, rashes, difficulty sleeping, and restricted activities. Breast reduction is a procedure that Dr. Emmett can perform to make your breasts smaller, more manageable, and more comfortably attuned to your body.
What are the Benefits of Breast Reduction?
If you feel that you need to change the weight, size, or firmness of your breasts, then the benefits of breast reduction surgery can include eliminating back and neck pain, skin irritation, and self-consciousness. Patients of Dr. Emmett report an extremely high rate of satisfaction following breast reduction surgery, including improvements in sleeping, breathing, elimination of headaches, not to mention non-physical benefits, such as improved self-esteem and the reduction of anxiety. Many patients of Emmett Plastic Surgery feel liberated, physically and emotionally, after undergoing breast reduction surgery. Clothing fits again, back and neck pain vanish, self-esteem rebounds, and a better overall quality of life results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction?
If you feel that you spend too much of your life accommodating your overly large breasts, and if you feel physical symptoms of discomfort brought on by overly large breasts, then you may be an ideal candidate for breast reduction surgery with Dr. Emmett. Overly large breasts can cause both physical and emotional suffering, so take the first step towards addressing these issues by scheduling your initial consultation now with Dr. Emmett at Emmett Plastic Surgery.
What is the Procedure for Breast Reduction?
During your breast reduction procedure, Dr. Emmett will remove excess breast fat, skin and glandular tissue to help you attain a breast size that is proportionate to your body and in line with your personal goals for your breasts. Your procedure may take several hours, and, at the outset, Dr. Emmett will assure your comfort with a carefully administered general anesthesia. Once you are completely comfortable, Dr. Emmett will create a discrete incision around your nipple that extends downward in the shape of a keyhole. Entering through the incision, Dr. Emmett will extract fat and remove excess skin from the breast, and reposition the nipple. Once the procedure is complete, Dr. Emmett will close the incision with sutures. You may need to allow yourself as much as one week off from work or school following your procedure. Dr. Emmett will give you instructions for your follow-up appointments as well as prescribe medication for the initial week of recovery following surgery. You should avoid any heavy lifting or strenuous activity for at least a month following surgery to allow the healing process to take place.
How Much Does Breast Reduction Cost?
Breast reduction is not considered medically necessary, and, as a result, it is not covered by most insurance plans. However, Dr. Emmett provides a variety of financing options through CareCredit®, Bank SNB, and Prosper® Healthcare Lending to make breast augmentation available and affordable to everyone. Emmett Plastic Surgery also accepts cash, personal checks, and major credit cards.
