Breast Reduction in Ottawa
There are many reasons someone may be interested in considering a breast reduction. Large, heavy breasts can result in years of back pain, rashes, and poor posture. Some women seek treatment to help with exercise or to improve the overall experience of shopping for clothing that fits properly. Others are simply uncomfortable with their breast size and want a change. Whatever the reason, breast reduction surgery can help women feel more comfortable with their bodies while providing a beautiful, aesthetic result.
Dr. Ian MacArthur is a Top Rated, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Ottawa who can help you achieve the aesthetic results you desire.
What is Breast Reduction Surgery?
Predicting the exact size is difficult, as bra manufacturers use different criteria for bra sizes. Dr. MacArthur will work with you to determine the appropriate amount of a reduction for your body while minimizing complications.
When patients wake up from breast reduction surgery, many respond that they can feel the change immediately. They no longer suffer from having heavy, pendulous breasts that can leave them feeling dragged down. Instead, they have smaller, lifted, and firm breasts that match the rest of their body.
Breast reduction surgery generally takes around two hours. It is done on an outpatient basis at a hospital or surgery center. Patients go home with a bandage over their chest that stays in place for one week. Most patients take 2 weeks off from work, and total recovery is around 1 month.
