Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction Surgery
Tijuana, Baja California, MX

Overly large breasts can be both physically and psychologically challenging for some women. They may cause significant neck, back and shoulder pain and feelings of embarrassment or self-consciousness. Breast reduction surgery is a great way to sculpt a more proportional bust and help women enjoy a more comfortable life.

Candidates for Breast Reduction in Tijuana, Mexico

Women who experience one or more of the following may be a suitable candidate for breast reduction surgery in Tijuana:

  • Back, neck or shoulder pain caused by the weight of heavy breasts
  • Breasts that sag significantly because of their size
  • Breasts that are out of proportion with the rest of the body
  • Restriction of physical activities or exercise because of the size or weight of the breasts
  • Indentations, marks or rashes from bra straps that dig into the shoulders because of the weight of large breasts

Men with overly developed breasts may also qualify for male breast reduction (gynecomastia treatment).

The Breast Reduction Procedure

Breast reduction is an outpatient surgery performed in a hospital or surgical facility. It typically takes a few hours. During the surgery, Tijuana breast reduction surgeon Dr. Fuentes removes excess tissue, fat and skin. He may also reposition the nipple and areola higher on the chest. Incisions are typically made around the areola, extending vertically down the breast and following the natural curve underneath the breast in a shape that resembles a keyhole or racquet shape. Other options include a circular incision pattern around the areola, or an inverted "T" or anchor shaped incision pattern. Dr. Fuentes may incorporate liposuction into the procedure, depending on the amount of fat that needs to be removed from the breasts.

Once he is happy with the new size of the breasts, Dr. Fuentes closes the incisions with stitches and dresses the breasts in surgical bandages to support them as they heal.

Recovering from Breast Reduction Surgery

It’s critical for Mexico breast reduction surgery patients to rest as much as possible right after surgery. Movement and activity should be limited in order to facilitate a smooth and speedy recovery. Dr. Fuentes may provide a surgical bra for the patient to wear after he removes the bandages and dressings. Any post-operative pain can be alleviated with oral medication. Dr. Fuentes will outline specific recovery instructions during the initial surgical consultation.
