Reduction Mammoplasty in Monmouth County and the Jersey Shore, NJ

A breast reduction – also referred to as ‘reduction mammoplasty’ – is a procedure designed to resize and reshape the breasts so that they appear in proportion with the rest of the body. Many women experience symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, grooving from bra straps, poor posture, macerating skin rashes underneath the breast folds and inability to exercise. Macromastia (large breasts) can also draw unwanted attention and negatively affect a woman’s self-esteem.
Monmouth County plastic surgeon Dr. Rahul Vemula performs reduction mammoplasty to remove excess fat and glandular tissue so that the patient’s breasts are healthier and more comfortable in proportion to the rest of her body. Dr. Vemula has worked with countless patients seeking breast reduction from Monmouth County areas such as Long Branch, West Long Branch, Eatontown, Rumson, Fairhaven, and Redbank. Many of his patients also travel from surrounding Jersey Shore areas such as Brick, Toms River, Ocean County, Middlesex county, Central New Jersey , and New York City.

Dr. Vemula’s Technique

New Jersey board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Vemula performs reduction mammoplasty as an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. During the procedure, the surgeon will make incisions and remove excess breast tissue and skin. He will also reposition the nipple to a ts proper anatomic on the breast, and decrease the size of the areola if needed. At the conclusion of the procedure, Dr. Vemula will apply bandages and issue a surgical bra to provide added support to the area.
The type of incision to be used during the procedure will vary based on the patient’s individual case. Dr. Vemula generally offers three types of incisions for this surgery:

Traditional breast reduction (Inverted T Technique)– with this technique, the surgeon will make an anchor-shaped incision to remove excess fat, skin, and tissue from the breast. The surgeon will also reposition the nipple-areola complex while taking care not to disrupt its nerve and blood supply. This type of procedure entails more scarring and is ideal for women who have extremely large breasts.

Vertical incision – also referred to as a short-scar, this incision type extends around the areola then runs down to the breast crease to form a “lollipop” shape. There’s less scarring involved and this technique is great for women who have moderately large breasts and who are looking for shapelier results without extensive tissue removal.

Scarless reduction – this kind of reduction surgery entails using liposuction to get rid of excess fatty tissue and resize the breasts with little to no scarring. This technique is very common in the treatment of gynecomastia (enlargement of breast tissue in males).
