Downsizing Drama

Breast Reductionwith Dr. Katherine B. Santosa

Women with ample breasts often consider them an asset, but in some cases, they can be overly large and heavy, causing various difficulties. These challenges may include discomfort such as neck, back, and shoulder pain, difficulty participating in physical activities, clothes that don't fit well, unwanted attention, and skin irritation. The additional weight and discomfort can interfere with everyday activities like work, childcare, and exercise and may also contribute to feelings of self-consciousness, embarrassment, and depression. Fortunately, Dr. Katherine B. Santosa provides a range of breast surgeries, including Breast Reduction, to address these concerns. She strives to deliver the best Breast Reduction Atlanta has to offer.

Less is More

Introducing Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure that can help women who have overly large breasts. It's done to reduce the size of the breasts and make them more proportional to the rest of the body. This surgery is recommended for women who experience physical pain or discomfort due to the weight of their breasts or those who want to improve their overall body shape.

Breast Reduction Consultation and Preparation

During your consultation with Dr. Santosa, you can expect a thorough evaluation of your medical history, breast anatomy, and aesthetic goals.

Chest Stress Relief

Your Breast Reduction Procedure

During the surgery, Dr. Santosa utilizes advanced surgical techniques to remove excess breast skin, fat, and tissue. This results in smaller, firmer, and lifted breasts. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and involves making incisions around the areola, down to the breast crease, and along a portion of the breast crease.

After the excess tissue, fat, and skin are removed, the remaining breast tissue is reshaped and repositioned for a more youthful and natural appearance. The incisions are then closed, and dressings are applied. Recovery time varies from patient to patient, but most of our Atlanta Breast Reduction patients can return to work and normal activities within a few weeks. Dr. Santosa will provide detailed instructions on post-operative care to ensure a smooth recovery process.
