Breast Reduction Miami

Miami Breast Reduction Surgery by Dr. Tachmes

Overly large breasts can cause some women to have both health and emotional problems. In addition to self image issues, you may also experience physical pain and discomfort. The weight of excess breast tissue can impair your ability to lead an active life. The emotional discomfort and self-consciousness often associated with having large pendulous breasts is as important an issue to many women as the physical discomfort and pain.

  Also known as reduction mammaplasty, this procedure removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts. Miami Board Certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Tachmes is an expert on Breast Reduction Surgery and will review all options with you during your consultation.

Breast reduction is a good option for you if:

  • You are physically healthy
  • You have realistic expectations
  • You don’t smoke
  • You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too large
  • Your breasts limit your physical activity
  • You experience back, neck and shoulder pain caused by the weight of your breasts
  • You have regular indentations from bra straps that support heavy, pendulous breasts
  • You have skin irritation beneath the breast crease
  • Your breasts hang low and have stretched skin
  • Your nipples rest below the breast crease when your breasts are unsupported
  • You have enlarged areolas caused by stretched skin

What to expect during the recovery period:

  • Immediately after surgery there might be swelling, discomfort, bruising and tenderness.  Any pain or discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication
  • Return to light activity within 2 days post-surgery or as you feel ready
  • Most patients return to work within a week
  • You can resume all of your normal activities in 4-6 weeks
