Feel Better, Look Better
Many women suffer daily from the effects of having breasts that are disproportionate to their body size. If you are one of these women, you may be experiencing back pain, neck pain, difficulty exercising, painful bra strap marks, chronic rashes, or unwelcome stares that often times accompany having uncomfortably large breasts. If you are in the Milwaukee area and have breasts that are uncomfortably large for your figure, Dr. Bosbous can help relieve your symptoms with a breast reduction surgery.
The Breast Reduction Procedure
Dr. Bosbous is happy to offer his Milwaukee breast reduction patients a short scar procedure known as the SPAIR technique. The technique was developed by his former fellowship director, the well-known and respected breast plastic surgeon Dr. Hammond. The SPAIR procedure reduces the scar length necessary to perform your reduction surgery, meaning Dr. Bosbous can shape your breasts and improve their aesthetics while minimizing visible scarring.
Advantages of the SPAIR Technique
Dr. Bosbous performs breast reduction surgery with an artistic eye and hand. Too often breast reduction is performed with a “cookie cutter ” mentality. Dr. Bosbous brings individual care, consideration and detail to every procedure he performs. Working to restore your breasts to a more youthful, proportionate look Dr. Bosbous will use the SPAIR technique to:
- Reduce breast size and weight by removing excess tissue
- Tailor breast tissue and skin to be youthfully repositioned
- Reposition the nipple areolar complex to fit with your new breast shape/size
Traditionally reduction procedures result in an “anchor” shaped scar, but with the SPAIR procedure you have one scar that passes around the nipple areolar complex and gently curves down to the inframammary fold greatly reducing your scar length compared to other methods. By decreasing the scar length the SPAIR avoids some of the complications experienced with more traditional breast reduction techniques.
Occasionally, depending on the patient’s age and skin quality Dr. Bosbous may be able reduce the breast with liposuction alone or using liposuction and a SPAIR pattern skin resection.
Breast Reduction Recovery and Results
Breast reduction is performed as an outpatient procedure in an accredited surgical center or hospital. Dr. Bosbous takes pride in the attention to detail he gives each of his patients. A typical reduction surgery takes about 4 hours, and often insurance will cover this procedure. Patients can expect to resume daily activity within 3-4 days of their surgery, but may experience swelling for 7-10 days. Exercise and vigorous activity should be avoided for 4 weeks after surgery.
