Women with overly large breasts often suffer from physical pain and emotional stress that can significantly impact their quality of life. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frederick K. Park performs breast reduction surgery in Rocky Mount to help women from Greenville, Wilson, Murfreesboro, and Weldon, NC, and other nearby cities feel more comfortable and confident.
Dr. Park’s Approach:
“Some of the most satisfied plastic surgery patients are those who have undergone breast reduction surgery. Successful surgery results in higher, smaller, lighter breasts. Besides improvement in appearance, symptoms of bra strap grooving and back, neck, and shoulder pain are often significantly improved.
The classic pattern of scarring includes scars around the nipple-areolar complex, a vertical scar on the front of the breast, and a horizontal scar under the breast of various lengths. For the breast reduction patient, these scars tend to be insignificant compared to the improvement in shape and relief of symptoms they enjoy after surgery.”
What Is Breast Reduction Surgery?
Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure that involves removing excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts. While a breast lift
is performed with similar incision patterns, it only involves removing excess skin.
