No limit: more risks. There is no limit and the ultimate breast reductionis essentially a subcutaneous mastectomy but this can produce an undesirable appearance and result in increased risk of finished nipple/areolar viability or sensation.
Yes. Unfortunately if you try to go too small with a reduction you may sacrifice shape and projection. A certain amount of tissue is always left behind the nipple to supply blood to this area, the remainder of the tissues has to be in proportion or else you will wind up with an unattractive breast.
Yes. There is point where the remaining breast mound that s created is smaller than the scar pattern designed.Thevresult is a nice looking breast mound with scars well outside this breast.They are very visible and not well concealed as seen in well planned and executed reductions.
Not really, but... Most breast reductions are not done for cosmetic improvement, but rather for symptoms from the size and weight of the breasts (back and shoulder pain, rashes under the breasts.) mastectomies are done all of the time for cancer; this removes the entire breast, so it can be done. You need to discuss your specific goals with a surgeon certified by the am. Board of plastic surgery for the best result.
No. We perform breast reductions in men that completely remove any appearance of a breast mound.
No. Not technologically but yes in terms of what is sensible.
Yes. A breast can only be reduced so much before one begins to jeopardize the viability of the nipple and areola. A well-trained surgeon will attempt to carefully preserve the blood supply to the nipple-areola complex while reducing the breast as close to the expectations of the patient.
Breast Reduction siz. Yes , the surgeon has to limit the reduction size in proportion to the function and cosmesis of the breast. Read more...
Yes. It is possible to reduce the breasts size very significantly. The concern with the amount of tissue removed is related to blood flow to the remaining tissue; if too much tissue is removed in one operation the blood flow to the remaining tissue (including nipple/areola) may be compromised. Part of the tissue that is left in place is called the “pedicle"; seek consultation for more info… Read more...
