Breast Reduction — Incisions Pittsburgh Surgery
Breast reduction surgery reduces the size and the weight of your breasts. It can be requested for numerous reasons, such as constant back and neck pain, discomfort during physical activities, or a disproportionate figure. If you’re considering undergoing a breast reduction, it’s important to have some basic knowledge about the procedure.
At the start of the breast reduction, an incision is created to give board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Heil access to the underlying tissue. Incisions can vary in size and shape, depending on the specific goals and issues of the patient. After the skin, fat and glandular breast tissues are removed, the incisions are closed with medical sutures.
