About Breast Reduction Surgery
Abnormally large breasts can create social, functional, and physical challenges for women. Furthermore, uneven and very large breasts can lead to self-confidence issues and overall embarrassment as well as pain in both the neck and back. Dr. Andrea Basile is an aesthetic plastic surgeon in Naples, FL who continues to help countless women get back their confidence and feel more comfortable through surgical reduction of the breasts. This aesthetic surgery at Basile Plastic Surgery removes excess breast fat and skin as well as unhealthy tissue to redefine and reshape the breasts to a smaller, more balanced size. Breast reduction surgery also reshapes the size of the nipples/areolas and moves them so they are symmetrical with the new size. In most situations, a breast lift can be implemented to produce a more taut and younger-looking appearance.
If you are challenged with extremely large and heavy breasts that create obstacles in your everyday life, cosmetic breast reduction may be what you need to get the contour you wish for. Breast reduction is helpful for women who experience constant worry or find it difficult to live a fulfilled and active life because of the weight of their breasts. If you also deal with consistent skin inflammations or irritations (as well as back or neck pain), breast reduction surgery can eliminate these medical conditions. It's crucial patients are at a normal weight and choose a trained surgeon like Dr. Basile who listens to their desired outcome and has the aptitude to create a pleasing and natural appearance.

"Breast Augmentation - Breast augmentation was something that I had been thinking about since my third daughter was born 19 years ago. But as a stay at home mom/wife, it just never seemed to be "the right time". I waited, patiently, until at last the timing was right! I did a lot of research and talked to many people. Dr. Basile was one of three Plastic Surgeons that I met with before making my final decision. ..."- S.H. / RealSelf / Apr 25, 2018

Surgical breast reduction is an outpatient process and is conducted with the patient under general anesthesia. The timing of surgery depends on a variety of factors, including the complexity of the incision, the general reduction technique, and, finally, how much reduction is required. The areola and nipple area repositioning is also a factor. For most patients, liposuction is required for fat and tissue elimination to reduce the breast size. During the private consultation, all of these aspects are addressed with Dr. Basile. The topic of scarring is also scrupulously examined and talked through as it is likely to occur. However, surgical skill and advanced techniques have led to a noticeable reduction in the visibility of scarring. Based on the intricacy of the size and overall reduction, either an inverted-T or a straight line (vertical) incision will be incorporated. Breast fat and tissue will then be removed, and the existing skin and tissue will be pulled tight and secured.
What to Expect
Once surgery has been completed, you will be monitored closely in our comfortable recovery facility and then discharged home to begin the healing process. A small, tube-like draining device is usually inserted near the incision area to reduce bleeding and swelling. A compression bra will be put in place for a few days that will boost blood circulation to the breasts during the immediate recovery. In a month or so, the breasts will position themselves and settle, and the post-surgery effects will disappear. A vast selection of our patients at Basile Plastic Surgery say they feel relieved, lighter, and more reassured. Following surgical breast reduction, you can enjoy the clothes you could not wear before and feel enthusiastic about your new contour. Keep in mind it is important to maintain a healthy body weight so the outcomes are not affected in a negative way.
