If you’re uncomfortable with the size of your breasts and you’ve thought about what life would be like if they were smaller, you don’t have to wonder any longer. Autologous reduction surgery from Dr. Anke Ott Young, Dr. Mary Pronovost, and Dr. Christine Hodyl at Constructive Plastic Surgery in Trumbull, CT, can help resize and reshape your breasts to a size that is more comfortable for you and your body.
What is Autologous Reduction Surgery?
Autologous reduction surgery is also known as breast reduction and works best for patients with large breasts. This surgery from your doctor in Trumbull, CT, is also minimally invasive and can be performed to reconstruct and reshape the breasts. A huge benefit to this surgery is that your doctor in Trumbull, CT, can use your body’s natural tissue from other areas of the body such as the buttocks, the back, or the thighs. The tissue from these areas is very similar to the look and texture of the tissue on the breasts. There are certain factors that your doctor will consider when deciding what technique to use and where to take tissue from.
You may also receive autologous reduction surgery at the same time as a mastectomy to help reconstruct the final shape of the breasts. Once the surgery is done, you’ll have to heal for a few weeks and additional surgeries may be needed to adjust the position of the nipples to give you the best results that you’re looking for. It can take up to six weeks for you to be able to return to normal activities and it’s important to check in with your doctor while you heal.
