Breast Reduction – Fayetteville, Arkansas

Breast size and shape is important to many women. If you are dissatisfied with your breasts because they are disproportionately large for your body, or if you suffer from neck, back, or shoulder pain due to large, heavy breasts, a breast reduction procedure with board certified plastic surgeon R. Douglas Vanderpool, MD is a choice to consider.

Women choose breast reduction (also known as reduction mammoplasty), for many reasons, including the following:

  • To achieve smaller, lighter, and perkier breasts
  • To relieve back, neck, or shoulder pain caused by heavy or large breasts
  • To improve the balance of ┬átheir figure
  • To alleviate unwanted attention due to having very large breasts
  • To enhance self-image and self-confidence

Procedural Steps

Dr. Vanderpool uses a technique that produces minimal scarring. Excess skin is removed and the breast is contoured for an improved appearance. During reduction mammaplasty, Dr. Vanderpool removes breast tissue to achieve the desired breast size, often performing a breast lift at the same time. The procedure does not require removal or replacement of the nipple. The nipple and areola stay attached to the breast. Breast reduction is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia.

Your Results

Results of breast reduction plastic surgery are immediate. Swelling should subside in 2-4 weeks. Incision lines will continue to flatten and fade for up to 1 year. Women who undergo breast reduction plastic surgery typically report an enhanced sense of self-confidence an improvement in quality of life because they are no longer burdened by excessively large breasts. You will also likely find that clothing fits you better and bras are more comfortable.
