Board-certified plastic surgeon Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., performs breast reductions for those living in and near Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida.
Breast reduction is a type of surgery involving the removal of part of the tissue and skin of the breasts in order to reshape and resize them. Breast reduction surgery can also involve the reduction in the size of the areola. Some benefits of breast reduction surgery are improving posture issues and alleviating neck pain and skin irritation. Breast reduction surgery can also help improve breathing and alleviate pain or awkwardness felt while performing various physical activities. Also, breast reduction can help women by boosting their self-esteem and self-image, and reduce social anxiety caused by having breasts that are disproportionally large. Dr. Rubinstein begins a breast reduction procedure by applying general anesthesia. He then makes an incision around the areola and down to the breast base. He then will excise excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue, and guide the nipple and areola into their new positions. Next, he will bring the skin back together and reshape a new breast contour. He will then close the incision with stitches. Liposuction can serve as a type of breast reduction, however, if only fat needs to be removed.
