Breast Reduction in Mobile

Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammaplasty) is a surgical procedure designed for women with very large breasts. Common problems caused by large breasts range from neck and back pain to breathing problems. This plastic surgery procedure removes fat, skin and tissue from the breasts, which in turn, makes them smaller, weigh less and more firm. The goal is to give women proportionate breasts to there body. This procedure is done typically to relieve the physical discomforts of very large breasts, the inactivity they can cause, and the pain as well. Most patients are back to work in less than 3 days. However, you may experience discomfort for a couple weeks. Important note: Some insurance companies will cover Breast reduction, but it is important to have the proper documentation. Also, they may require a certain amount of tissue to be removed. This is important to talk to the doctor about during your initial consultation.
