Breast Reduction Oklahoma City
Breast reduction is an ideal solution for individuals whose large, heavy breasts have caused them either physical or emotional discomfort. Dr. Paul Silverstein performs the procedure to alleviate the back, neck, and shoulder pain that many breast reduction patients experience, and to also help women who are self-conscious about the size of their bust. Dr. Silverstein and his team are proud to offer treatment in a warm, friendly environment, where each patient receives personalized attention and high-quality care. We invite you to contact our practice to learn more about what's involved with the procedure and the results that Dr. Silverstein is able to achieve for his breast reduction patients from Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and across the state.
Breast Reduction Surgery
Dr. Silverstein performs breast reduction procedures either at the Integris Baptist Medical Center, Mercy Health Center, or our own 10,000 square foot, federally-licensed surgicenter. General anesthesia will be used to ensure that the patient is asleep throughout the entire procedure, which typically lasts between two and four hours.
An incision will be made around the areola, extending downwards, and along the crease beneath the breast. Dr. Silverstein will then remove the excess fat, tissue, and skin that have contributed to the cumbersome size of the breasts. The nipple and areola (the darker-colored area around the nipple) will be moved to a higher, more attractive location. If the areola is larger than the patient would prefer, its size can be reduced. Dr. Silverstein will adjust the remaining breast skin so that it's pulled taut around the areola, ensuring that new breast contours are as smooth and youthful-looking as possible.
Results and Recovery
Most patients are very pleased with their breast reduction results at our Oklahoma City practice, and feel as though a burden has been lifted from them. The pain they felt from large breasts is gone, and they are free to enjoy activities that they might not have been able to participate in comfortably before. A whole new array of wardrobe options are now available as well. A talented, qualified cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Paul Silverstein is able to place incisions discreetly so that the appearance of scars is minimized and patients will feel comfortable wearing swimsuits, low cut tops, and other revealing attire.
Dr. Silverstein and his staff will be there for support throughout the recovery period. Patients may experience some temporary soreness and swelling after breast reduction, but medication will be prescribed to alleviate discomfort. A surgical bra will provide support for several weeks as the breasts continue to heal and swelling subsides. Stitches are generally removed within one to three weeks. Most patients are able to return to work approximately two weeks after their breast reduction procedure, as long as their jobs do not involve lifting or other strenuous activities. It's important for patients to refrain from high levels of exercise and exertion for a few additional weeks until their strength fully returns.
