WHAT IS A BREAST REDUCTION?
In a breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty, Dr. Nimtz removes skin and excess breast tissue to reduce your breast size and enhance your breast shape. Often this includes moving the nipple and making it smaller. On some occasions, liposuction is included in a breast reduction to remove excess fatty tissue from the breast area.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A BREAST REDUCTION?
A breast reduction differs from a breast lift as it is a reduction in actual breast tissue, while a breast lift removes only skin. While breast reduction surgery can permanently enhance the breast, breasts may become larger due to pregnancy as well as significant weight gain or loss.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR A BREAST REDUCTION?
Women who are good candidates for breast reduction have large, heavy, sagging breasts who want to improve their breast size, shape and weight. Beyond helping women feel more comfortable about their shape and more proportionate size, women often feel more comfortable when the weight of heavy breasts is reduced. Furthermore, women can find more pleasure in various activities that were once limited because of their breast size.

WHAT IS THE BREAST REDUCTION PROCEDURE?
Breast reduction surgery is usually performed by Dr. Nimtz through incisions on your breasts with surgical removal of any excess fat, glandular tissue and skin, while some excess fat may be removed through liposuction in conjunction with the excision techniques. The technique used by Dr. Nimtz to reduce the size of your breasts will be determined by your individual condition, breast composition, and the amount of reduction desired. Your incision lines are visible and permanent scars, although usually will fade over time. After the incision is made, the nipple (which remains tethered to its original blood and nerve supply) is then repositioned. The areola is reduced by excising skin at the perimeter, if necessary, and the underlying breast tissue is reduced, lifted and shaped. Afterwards your incision is sutured, and you are ready to begin the recovery process.
