Dr. G typically performs a breast reduction with the patient under general anesthesia. Before the procedure, your skin will be cleansed and marked to help guide Dr. G. He will carefully and precisely create an incision that goes all the way around the areola and continues underneath the breast. Using this incision, he will take excess skin from each side of the breasts. The tissue that is not removed will be lifted and contoured to achieve a firmer, smaller appearance for the breasts. Dr. G may also re-position the nipple and areola (this will be discussed during your consultation). Once the procedure is complete, the incisions will be closed.
