Stark Plastic Surgery

For Philadelphia area patients struggling with these issues, a breast reduction surgery performed by double-board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stark is a lasting and effective route to less discomfort and a more proportional, better shaped silhouette. 

What is a breast reduction? 

Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, reduces the size and improves the shape and placement of the breasts. This surgery may be chosen by you and Dr. Stark in order to make the breast smaller, correct sagging breasts, improve symmetry, and remove excess skin.

The specific goals of your Philadelphia breast reduction surgery will be decided during your personal and comprehensive consultation with Dr. Stark. As a double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Stark draws upon his many years of experience and exemplary training in cosmetic breast surgery to develop the best and safest surgical plan possible for you. A good breast reduction must fit each individual’s anatomy to achieve smaller yet proportionate, well-shaped and well-positioned breasts. He will take the time to ensure your needs are fully understood and met. 

For those women who desire a less dramatic change in size or who are primarily concerned with sagging, a breast lift may be a better option. Again, Dr. Stark always fully reviews all surgical options with his Philadelphia area patients to ensure that they are making informed and confident choices.

How is breast reduction surgery performed?

Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia and lasts approximately two to three hours. During the procedure excess breast tissue and skin are removed to reduce the overall size of the breast. The areola is reduced and the remaining tissue is repositioned to contour the breast to a natural appearing shape. In many ways, breast reduction is very similar to breast lift surgery, but additionally removes excess tissue from the breasts.

Recovery from breast reduction surgery

You will be fitted with a surgical bra, which you should wear during recovery for increased comfort. Bandages will remain in place for 24-48 hours after your surgery. Most women do not require the placement of drains during their surgery, but it is a possibility. These can usually be removed after about a week.

Breast reduction surgery does leave scars. Most patients find the aesthetic improvement and the reduction of discomfort to be worth the risk of scars. As with any procedure performed by Dr. Stark, his meticulous suturing techniques and post-surgical scar therapy help to minimize their appearance. In general, it takes an incision up to a year to fully heal.
