Breast Reduction St. Petersburg
Breast Reduction, also known as Reduction Mammaplasty is the only effective treatment for neck and back pain that is related to large, heavy breasts (hypermastia). The increase in number of breast reductions may be attributed to patient and primary physician awareness. Breast reduction accomplishes two goals. First, it reduces the volume of the breast. Second, it raises the nipple areolar complex (NAC) to a level that fits the patient’s anatomy. Many techniques have been developed over the years. The Vertical scar technique popularized by Dr. Elizabeth Hall-Findlay is primarily utilized in Dr. Newman’s practice to avoid the transverse incision along the inframammary fold. This results in a more natural breast shape and isn’t as susceptible to the bottomed out effect typically seen with more traditional techniques. Patients typically report improvement in neck and back pain within days of the surgery.
