Breast reduction surgery is a surgical procedure that not only helps to decrease the size of one’s breasts, but can also relieve the discomfort that may be associated with large, heavy breasts. If you suffer from neck or back pain, experience exercise intolerance or have developed skin irritation as a result of large breasts, a breast reduction may be right for you.
There are a number of breast reduction incision techniques. For most patients, Dr. Villalobos performs the vertical or lollipop method. With this technique the scars can be made around the surrounding border of the areola with a vertical incision made from the base of the areola to the bottom of the breast. This technique eliminates an additional incision that runs horizontally under the breast. With many years of experience, Dr. Villalobos has had great success with this technique.
MALE BREAST REDUCTION
A male breast reduction is often times a surgical procedure performed in order to aid in treating a condition called gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is a condition in which breast tissue in males become enlarged. Gynecomastia can occur as a result of a number of different factors including hormonal changes, use of certain medications, hereditary components, or a correlation to other medical conditions. Gynecomastia surgery helps to reduce the breast size in men, while also flattening the chest contour.
