Breast reduction in San Diego is safe and effective, taking just 2 to 4 hours, during which Dr. Chaffoo removes excess skin and fat. Liposuction might also be employed. Because glandular tissue (tissue involved in producing milk) is also removed, you will want to inform Dr. Chaffoo if you plan to breastfeed. Breast lift is also a part of breast reduction procedures, along with nipple and areola repositioning.
Patient experiences vary after breast reduction. After about 2 weeks, you will likely be back at work and well on your way to smaller, lighter, firmer and more flattering breasts. You may also experience improved self-esteem and a decrease in or even elimination of neck, shoulder and back pain, as well as bra strap grooves.
