Dr. Daniel Martin

Breast Reduction (Mammaplasty)

In the event that you have overly large breasts, you know the challenges they can bring. Neck and shoulder pain, hindered physical action, body image self-consciousness, and bra straps hurting your shoulders are just a few of the issues facing women with heavy breasts. If you find that this is the case for you, it may be time to consider breast reduction surgery with Toronto Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Daniel Martin.

The purpose of a Toronto Breast Reduction procedure, or Mammaplasty, is to help women live active, pain-free lives eliminating the symptoms caused by oversized breasts. The procedure involves creating incisions around the areola, horizontally under the breast, and vertically under the nipple. Depending on the nipple positions and on the size of the breast, only the horizontal incision under the breast is required.

The procedure involves removing three main types of excess tissue:

  • Glandular tissue
  • Fatty tissue
  • Skin

All patients are unique, and therefore some or all of these types of tissue may be removed.

FAQs

 

Is a Toronto Breast Reduction procedure a good fit for me?

It is important to note that a Toronto Breast Reduction surgery is a reconstructive procedure. This type of surgery is quite involved, and you should only consider it if you’re are unable to be active or are suffering pain. This is not a procedure that should be considered for cosmetic reasons only.

Good candidates for a Toronto Breast Reduction procedure are women with:

  • Tingling or numbness in their fingers, arms or breasts as a direct result of their breast size.
  • Oversized breasts that limit activity and are the source of pain.
  • Back, neck, shoulder, or breast pain that is directly caused by their breast size.
  • Scar lines on their breasts.
  • Breast infections (Polycystic mastitis) that are the product of breasts with cysts.
  • Disturbed sleep as a direct result of their breast size.
  • Poor posture as a direct result of their breast size.
  • Grooves in their back from their bras as a direct result of their breast size.

 

Are my Toronto Mammaplasty expectations reasonable?

It is very important that your expectations and concerns be communicated to Dr. Daniel Martin during your consultation. As all patients are unique, there is not one uniformly desired outcome for all patients. It is through honest communication that Dr. Martin can determine if your expectations are reasonable, and it is through the educational consultation, that Dr. Martin will walk you through the process of the surgery and what you can expect from an end result as well as how to prepare for the procedure.

 

How long does it take to recover?

After your surgery, there will be some pain, which Dr. Martin will make manageable with prescribed pain medicine. Your chest will be wrapped with an elastic bandage, and you will be required to wear a surgical bra over the dressings to help lessen swelling and help in the recuperation process.

The bandages will be removed by Dr. Martin in about a week after your surgery. You may continue to feel pain and some throbbing for up to one month. Many patients are able to return to work in about two weeks, although this is not always the case. During this time you may feel tired and lethargic, which will eventually pass, but activity should be minimized until your energy returns to aid in the healing process.
