Located in Green and Beachwood, Ohio, Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Steven S. Carp, M.D., F.A.C.S, performs breast reduction surgery for residents in and around Akron, Cleveland and Canton.
Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of some of the skin and tissue of the breasts to reduce the size of and reshape the breasts. The surgery can also make the areola smaller. The benefits of reducing large, heavy breasts include alleviating skin irritation and neck pain and improving posture issues. It can also improve breathing and eliminate the awkwardness or pain experienced during sports or other activities. Additionally, breast reduction benefits women psychologically by improving self-image, self-esteem and social anxiety from the embarrassment of unproportionally large breasts.
Under general anesthesia, Dr. Carp will make an anchor-shaped incision around the areola and downward to the crease at the base of the breast. Next, he will remove excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin as well as move the areola and nipple into new positions. Afterward, he will bring the skin together and shape the new contour for the breast before using stitches to close the incision. However, in cases where only fat needs to be removed from the breasts, liposuction is an alternative to surgery. Please look at these before and after photos of the breast reduction procedures that Dr. Carp has performed on his real patients.
