Some women find that they are born with breasts that are frankly too large for their frames. This can be challenging to deal with, as it can cause pain and hinder one’s ability to exercise or participate in certain activities, such as horseback riding or running. Dr. Prichard offers a breast reduction for patients who feel they could do with a little downsizing in their lives. Dr. Prichard delivers some of the best breast reduction Phoenix has to offer.
Women with larger breasts tend to struggle with finding clothes, as there are far more restrictions in what clothes will be comfortable as well as flattering. Other issues you may find yourself facing are uncomfortable and unappealing bra strap grooves, lower back and neck pain, insecurity in one’s personal image, and even a daily irritation with the size of one’s breasts. Breast reduction surgery can be a way of alleviating yourself from such troubles.

About the procedure
Breast reduction surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure using IV sedation or general anesthesia, which is administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. The exact techniques used in the surgery will be determined by the measure of reduction that is being asked. The surgery may only require incisions that encircle the areolas. It may require additional vertical and crescent-shaped incisions underneath the nipples. Through the incisions, Dr. Prichard removes the undesired breast tissue, fat, and skin. Dr. Prichard will then reform the breasts. The precise details and methods of the surgery can be reviewed during your private consultation with Dr. Prichard.
After your surgery, you will be able to return home. You will be given a surgical bra to wear, which will maintain the reformed shape of your breasts. It is extremely important to wear this bra at all times, except when showering or bathing, for the first 3 to 4 weeks. It is normal for patients often experience discomfort for the first few days. Patients usually feel inclined to return to their daily routine within 2 weeks. Any strenuous, high-impact exercise or activities can be taken back up within 4 to 6 weeks. Most of the swelling will diminish within the first month.
