Breast Reduction in Jacksonville & Fleming Island, FL
Naturally large breasts can do more than cause unwanted attention. They can leave you with physical pain as well as emotional distress. Breast reduction performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Timothy E. Fee, MD, can give your breasts a more proportionate shape helping to alleviate back pain and boost your confidence. With offices in Jacksonville and Fleming Island, Coastal Cosmetic Center offers breast reduction to both patients living in or around the surrounding communities of North Florida and those around the world.
What is a Breast Reduction?
Overly large breasts can cause physical and psychological pain. Breast reduction decreases volume in breasts that are disproportionally large, helping to reshape the breasts and giving them a younger appearance while also helping to alleviate back pain associated with heavy breasts.
What Are the Benefits of Breast Reduction?
For women with large and heavy breasts, breast reduction surgery can significantly impact the quality of their life. It can also alleviate the common issues of neck and back pain, as well as eliminate the unwanted attention and fashion challenges that come with having an overly large bust.
What is Illusio (Breast) Imaging?
Illusio is a virtual 3D breast augmentation and simulator app. Dr. Fee utilizes this computer imaging technology to give you an impression of what your breasts and overall appearance will look like following your breast surgery. Illusio combines a 3D image of what your breasts will look like based on your implant selection along with a live image of your face and body. Together, you are able to see what your breast surgery results will look like in real time. This helps to eliminate stress and anxiety that often accompany plastic surgery.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction is ideal for women who suffer from overly large breasts that cause strain on the neck, shoulders, and back, as well as make it difficult to find clothing and bras that fit. Breast reduction is also ideal for men who have an abundance of breast tissue, a condition known as gynecomastia.
What is the Procedure for Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, will remove excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin to optimize your breast size. The procedure will take place under general anesthesia at our on-site nationally accredited Coastal Surgery Center in Jacksonville, FL. Surgery will last approximately three hours. The procedure is performed with an areolar incision—through which the fat, tissue, and skin are removed to form a new, firmer breast.
What is the Recovery for Breast Reduction?
Recovery time from breast reduction surgery ranges from two to four weeks off work. Common side effects include swelling, temporary bruising and discomfort—all of which will recede as the breasts heal. Patients must also abstain from lifting anything over 10 pounds during the post-operative recovery period.
