What does the procedure entail?
The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you can go home the same day. You'll immediately be able to see the change. The incisions produced leave a scar around the areola, and down from the areola to the crease underneath the breast. There is a limited scar beneath the breast depending on how much excess skin there is. All stitches are dissolvable and drains are not needed.
What can I expect?
Following the surgery, there is no limitation on range of motion of the arms or showering. You may drive and return to work within 24 hours. We recommend that you refrain from running, jogging or any strenuous exercise for 4-6 weeks.
Who is a good candidate?
You may want to consider this procedure if:
You have back, neck, or shoulder pain due to large breasts; you feel self-conscious about the size of your breasts; you have experienced rashes or chafing underneath your breasts, or you have difficulty finding bras or clothes to fit your figure.
Real Artistic Outcomes
Patients who see Dr. Gurley for breast reduction find a range of benefits from the procedure. Dr. Gurley lightens the weight of the breasts while repositioning and lifting them higher on the chest wall. This means your bra doesn't have to work so hard. Patients are able to exercise with greater comfort and wear dresses, swimsuits and other clothing that did not fit well prior to surgery. Dr. Gurley will consult individually with you to find your perfect size.
