Breast Reduction Surgery in Saginaw, Michigan

What is a Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction surgery is a safe and effective method of removing extra glandular tissue, fat, and skin from your breasts. The goal of this procedure is to achieve a bust size that is proportionate to the rest of your body. Dr. Barry wants to ensure your complete comfort and satisfaction with your breast size.

Qualifying for the Surgery

The typical breast reduction patient typically suffers from back and shoulder pain.  If you feel physically limited due to your breast size, you may be well-qualified for breast reduction surgery.

Many women are interested in knowing if breast reduction surgery is covered by insurance.  Typically, the breasts need to be  certain size in relation to the woman's height and weight.  There needs to be documented proof from another physician that efforts have been made to eliminate some of the symptoms that can arise from large breasts such as treatment for shoulder pain.  Patients need to be in  reasonably good health.  Smokers and obese patients are not good surgical candidates.  

Preparing for the Procedure

Your health is our top priority. We will evalaute  your medical history, do a thorough examination and review your goals for the procedure.  We will also discuss which type of reduction procdure would be best and safest for you.  Dr. Barry will discuss your options with you and recommend treatment methods based on your examination, health and preferences.

How it Works

The procedure is done by creating incisions on the breast through which  remove excess skin, fat and glandular tissue is removed.  The position of the nipple is typically elevated.  In most cases this can be done by rearranging the breast tissue.  In some cases, the nipple is removed completely and reattached in the appropriate location.  Dr Barry will discuss which procedure would be the safest for you and give you the best results.  

The Recovery Process

Recovery time varies from person to person. Dr. Barry will send you home with recovery information on how to care for your incisions, which medications to take and more. You are not required to stay in bed while your body heals. However, you should plan to take time off from exercising and other strenuous activities until Dr. Barry gives you approval to return to your normal routine.
