Overly large, pendulous breasts can cause discomfort and strain, reducing the patient’s overall quality of life. A strategic, personalized breast reduction in Fort Lauderdale with Dr. Bernard Shuster will balance the breasts with the rest of the figure, enhancing the appearance while boosting energy and stamina.
Breast Reduction Surgery Details
Dr. Shuster’s breast reduction procedures are performed under general anesthesia at Memorial Regional Hospital South in Hollywood, FL. This surgery takes approximately three hours.
Techniques for breast reduction vary, but the traditional procedure involves an anchor-shaped incision around the areola that extends downward and follows the natural curve of the breast crease. Dr. Shuster will remove excess tissue, fat, and skin, and the nipple and areola will be repositioned. The skin from both sides of the breast is brought down around the areola, shaping the new breast contour.
Dr. Shuster also specializes in shorter scar techniques for breast reduction, and in some cases, he can minimize scarring by using a technique that eliminates the need for a vertical incision. Occasionally — when only fat needs to be removed — breast reduction can be completed with liposuction alone, leaving only very small incision marks.
