What is a Breast Reduction?

Abnormally large breasts can create social, functional, and physical challenges for patients. Additionally, overly large and unbalanced breasts can lead to self-confidence issues, embarrassment, and physical pain. Dr. Jerry Chidester, or Dr. Chiddy, is a plastic surgeon in Draper, UT who has helped many patients regain their confidence and live more comfortably through breast reduction surgery. Dr. Chiddy reduces excess breast tissue and skin to redefine and reshape the breasts to a more comfortable size. This surgery also reconstructs the size of the nipples and repositions them so they look natural. In most cases, Dr. Chiddy can combine a breast lift and breast reduction to provide a tighter, younger-looking appearance.

Is Breast Reduction Right For You?

If you suffer from oversized breasts that hinder your everyday life, breast reduction surgery can help you feel more comfortable. This surgery is helpful for patients who have anxiety or unable to live an active life because of the heaviness of their breasts. If you also suffer from ongoing skin issues or back pain, this surgery can help eliminate these problems. Before undergoing breast reduction surgery, patients should be at a stable weight. This will help you maintain your breast reduction results. As an expert plastic surgeon, Dr. Chiddy understands the desired outcome, and he has the training to produce natural-looking and beautiful results.

Surgical Technique

Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure and is completed with general anesthesia. The amount of time needed for your surgery is dependent on several factors, including the incision type, technique, and the amount of excess breast tissue. Additionally, repositioning the nipple and areola will increase the amount of time. Typically, Dr. Chiddy uses liposuction to reduce fat and tissue, which helps decrease breast size. During your consultation, we will address all of these factors, including incision types and scarring. Patients will experience some scarring, but with Dr. Chiddy's advanced surgical skills and precise techniques, he can decrease visibility. Depending on the difficulty of your reduction, either an anchor or a vertical incision is made. After making the incision, Dr. Chiddy will remove the excess breast tissue and tighten the skin.

What to Expect

After completing your surgery, we will carefully monitor you in our private recovery room. Once we have discharged you, you can return home to start your recovery. Patients may experience some swelling and bleeding after the surgery. To help your body heal, Dr. Chiddy inserts a thin tube for draining near the surgical site. Additionally, you will need to wear a medical sports bra for several days. This will improve blood flow to the breasts during the initial healing process. In a month or so, the breasts will settle and the side effects will subside. Following the procedure, most of our patients love their results and feel more comfortable, self-assured, and happy. To ensure your results are long-lasting, please keep in mind that you will need to maintain a healthy weight.
