- Breast Reduction
BREAST RECONSTRUCTION 246
This patient had a problem with her heavy, gigantic breasts for her entire life. She came to our plastic surgery center in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. to discuss breast reduction surgery. After a detailed evaluation and analysis of her condition, we made our patient aware of increased risks of complications considering her obesity and breast size. Possible loss of portion of nipple and areola, loss of sensation, delayed healing, breast asymmetry, scarring, etc. were repeatedly discussed in our preoperative consultations.
We performed her surgery in our ambulatory plastic surgery center in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. 1550 gr. and 1460 gr. (over 3 lbs. each) of breast tissue was removed from right and left breast respectively. She was discharged home after surgery. Her postoperative recovery was without complications.
Patient’s images on the left demonstrate condition before reconstructive breast surgery. Images on the right are 1.5 years after breast reduction surgery. Notice barely visible scars around areola and below areola which is rather unusual for a darker skin person.
