In addition to causing cosmetic concerns, overly large breasts can also sometimes be the source of physical discomfort. In either case, breast reduction in the Washington DC area at the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery can help.
The Breast Reduction Experience
You’ll get started with an in-person consultation, giving you the ability to ask any questions you might have about the procedure. There are a variety of different techniques that can be used, and Dr. Sundin will explain everything you might need to know about your procedure, including what you can expect from incision placement and post-surgical scarring.
The procedure will be performed under general anesthesia, and you’ll be able to return home on the very same day. We’ll give you detailed aftercare instructions and a very thorough recovery timeframe, so you’ll know exactly what you can anticipate in terms of your downtime. We’ll also be available to you at every step of the way, to ensure your peace of mind.
You can expect a recovery period of about four to six weeks, but you’ll need to limit strenuous activities for up to eight weeks. We’ll be sure to schedule follow-up appointments with you, giving us the ability to ensure that you’re healing up properly, while also answering any questions that you might find yourself having as you look forward to your final results.
