Dr. Courtney’s patients frequently enjoy the fantastic benefits of breast reduction surgery.

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery?

What Does the Surgery Entail?

Although Dr. Courtney will tailor your procedure to fit your unique situation, there are a few necessary steps that he will follow.

  • Anesthesia- Dr. Courtney may choose either a local or general anesthesia, depending on your surgery method, and work with a certified anesthesiologist to keep you safe.
  • Creating the Incisions- Dr. Courtney will carefully place his incisions so that scars will not be noticeable. Your incision options may include a circular, keyhole, or anchor-shaped incision, depending upon what you and Dr. Courtney agree to.

Breast Reduction Frequently Asked Questions

We will provide you with thorough post-operative instructions that you should follow carefully. We recommend that you wear a compression garment to support your breasts and minimize swelling. Information about medications, follow up, and other specifics will be provided to you by our team.

Since breast reduction surgery removes tissues, your results will be totally permanent.

Similar to your recovery instructions, we will also give you a list of ways to prepare for your surgery. Generally, you should adjust any medications as recommended by Dr. Courtney. You should also quit smoking, drinking, and other habits that may hinder your results in any way. You must also avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory medication, or anything else that may increase bleeding.

Because this is a major surgery, we strongly recommend that you have someone there with you to take you home and watch over you for the first night after surgery. From there on, you’ll continue to improve and quickly become self-sufficient.
