For women in Frisco and Plano, Texas who suffer from the pain and limitations imposed by the weight of excess, heavy breast tissue, Dr. Tabbal performs breast reduction surgery to provide a shape and size of the breast that is proportional to the individual. At the same time, the benefits of surgery allow for the restoration of freedom and function to participate in all aspects of daily life. Removal of the excessive tissue is often only a component of the surgery; in actuality, this is often combined with lifting sagging tissues and reducing the size of the areolae. Those affected with heavy breasts often find the results of this surgery to be liberating — both physically and emotionally.
When to Consider Breast Reduction
The variety of ways in which patient’s benefit from breast reduction are numerous but include the physical relief of symptoms including chronic neck, back and shoulder pain, the freedom to perform routine and normal physical activities, as well as improved self-esteem and confidence that accompanies “feeling like your body fits you.” Wearing clothes or having freedom to choose from normal bra shapes and styles is just another example of how the benefits of breast reduction can be so impactful on the daily lives of women who have grown accustomed to living within the constraints of their body.
As a surgeon, breast reduction most readily incorporates the need to achieve results that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Each patient has her own goals, specific to her, just as her anatomy is unique to her body. Similarly, Dr. Tabbal will recommend a type of breast reduction surgery that is best suited to achieve your desired results.
Even Beyond the cosmetic component to breast reduction surgery, many women see the procedure as a pressing need because they suffer from chronic pain in the back, shoulders, and neck. Others find it difficult to exercise because their breasts get in the way, or complain of physical discomfort no matter what type of bra they buy.
After the procedure, patients express a sense of renewed freedom and self-confidence.
Your Breast Reduction
Similar to a breast lift, Dr. Tabbal has a variety of techniques to choose from. Whenever possible, Dr. Tabbal will minimize your scar by using a “vertical” incision that includes an incision around the new site of the areola. This is commonly referred to as a lollipop scar, but it is not best suited for all women. Ultimately, Dr. Tabbal seeks to provide a shape that is both aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting and sometimes requires an incision within the crease of the breast. Similar in shape to an anchor, the additional scar is usually well hidden given its location. Surgery is an outpatient procedure where most patients can begin non-strenuous activities within several days of their recovery.
