Breast Reduction Candidates

Women seek breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, to relieve back, neck and shoulder pain, to avoid unwanted attention or to increase self-confidence.

Whether you suffer from chronic pains or you’re just looking to balance your physique, a breast reduction may be an option for you. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Wooten to see if you are indeed a candidate for surgery.

The Surgery

Breast reduction surgery is an inpatient procedure that usually lasts between 3-5 hours. In most cases, you’ll be able to leave the hospital and return home on surgery day.

There are two incision methods used by plastic surgeons in breast reduction surgery.

Dr. Wooten uses the lollipop incision method which offers quicker recovery with less scarring. This method, named after the small lollipop-shaped scar produced, preserves the upper breast, the part responsible for cleavage and perkiness. With this breast reduction technique, the top half of your breasts become fuller, while the bottom of the breast narrows, creating the ideal breast shape.

During the procedure, Dr. Wooten will remove:

  • Excess skin
  • Excess glandular tissue
  • Fat

Afterwards, Dr. Wooten repositions the nipple and areola higher up on the breast. At this time, the nipple may also be reduced in size.

Quick Recovery

With the lollipop breast reduction technique, you can gain a more proportional silhouette while freeing yourself from chronic pain. Even better, there is minimal recovery time needed. Because your surgical wounds won’t require drains, there will be less post-op pain. You can also expect less overall swelling and bruising. Most women return to work less than 1 week after surgery.

Breast Reduction FAQs

How much breast tissue do I need to remove to get rid of back pain?

Dr. Wooten’s response to most larger-breasted women who want to remove almost all of their breast tissue and go down to an A cup is that it will likely look odd on their body. Often, the best size from women who are shedding that much breast tissue is a full C or a D cup. She often lets women know that they will still feel much lighter, but will have enough breast tissue to still look proportional. Of course, her response varies from patient to patient, and may be different after she examines you.
