Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction in Las Vegas by Dr. Arthur Cambeiro

Over-sized breasts may create challenges for women, both physically and socially. Moreover, asymmetrical or abnormally large breasts may lead to self-esteem issues, as well as physical discomfort. Dr. Arthur Cambeiro, in Las Vegas, NV, has helped many women restore their self-confidence and improve their quality of life. This aesthetic surgery removes excess breast fat, skin, and tissue to reshape the breasts to a more livable size. A breast reduction will also reconstruct nipple size and position to appear normal with the new breast size. Including a breast lift will deliver a perky, youthful appearance as well.

Developing Your Breast Reduction Surgical Plan

During your initial visit, Dr. Cambeiro will discuss the surgery with you, explain what you can expect from the procedure, listen to your questions, and address your concerns. Then, he will work with you to develop a surgical plan based on your unique body outline, overall health, and desired goals. He will ask you to consider essential questions to ask when interviewing a surgeon to prepare for your breast reduction consultation.

During your breast reduction consultation, Dr. Cambeiro will:

  • Ask you to watch a video of the procedure.
  • Study your breast anatomy.
  • Explain the details of the operation, including incisions and recovery.
  • Discuss every associated risk.

The purpose of your breast reduction consultation is to provide critical information you need to know to prepare you for a safe and successful procedure.

Optimal Candidates for a Breast Reduction

If you have oversized breasts that affect your daily life, a breast reduction is a fantastic option to achieve the breast size and contour you want to have. The operation is a benefit to women who have difficulty leading an active lifestyle because of the size of their breasts.

If you suffer from heavy or pendulous breasts that create obstacles in your daily life, a surgical breast reduction may be an excellent option to achieve your desired figure. This surgery is helpful for women who experience discomfort or find that the size of their breasts interferes with their quality of life. You are well-qualified for breast reduction if you meet any of the following criteria.

  • Back, neck or shoulder pain caused by the weight of your breasts
  • Massive, sagging breasts with nipples and areolas that fall below the breast creases
  • Breasts that are too large in proportion to your body frame
  • Skin irritation beneath your breasts
  • Indentations in your shoulders caused by tight bra straps
  • Restriction of physical activity due to the size and weight of your breasts
  • Feelings of self-consciousness because of large breasts
  • One breast that appears to be larger than the other

You can have a breast reduction performed at any age. However, we recommend waiting until your breasts have fully finished developing before considering a reduction. For most women, this happens by age 17 or 18, but some women’s breasts continue maturing into their early 20s.

Breast Reduction Benefits

Without the excessive weight of massive breast size, you’ll enjoy a markedly improved quality of life. After your breast reduction, you will have:

  • A better-proportioned figure
  • An easier time finding clothes that fit and wearing the latest styles
  • Freedom to enjoy an active lifestyle

The surgery will also resolve any discomfort you struggle with that results from oversized, heavy breasts.

Unrivaled Mastery

The Breast Reduction Consultation

Breast reduction candidates in Henderson and Las Vegas choose Dr. Cambeiro because of the complete surgical experience he offers. This process includes your consultation. If you live outside the Las Vegas area, we offer a fly-in program to meet your travel needs.

During your initial visit, Dr. Cambeiro will perform a thorough medical exam and review your surgical history. He will need to know any current conditions and medications you are taking. If you smoke, you will need to quit for at least four weeks before surgery and four weeks after. Smoking decreases blood circulation to the skin and impedes healing.

He will ask you to have a baseline mammogram performed before surgery. Please inform him if there is a history of breast cancer in your family. Dr. Cambeiro will explain the anesthesia he’ll use during surgery, as well as any associated risks.

The Breast Reduction Procedure

After assessing your health, goals, and anatomy, Dr. Cambeiro will devise a surgical plan. The most common technique employs a three-part incision: one around the areola, a short-scar vertical incision, and a horizontal incision beneath the breast.

After Dr. Cambeiro has removed the excess breast tissue, fat and skin, he’ll shift the nipples and areolas to a higher position. If your areolas are larger than you’d like, he’ll reduce their size. He’ll move skin from above the nipple down and together to reshape the breasts. He may also use liposuction to improve the contour, especially on the sides of the breasts.

As he moves the nipples and areolas to a higher position, Dr. Cambiero takes every precaution to keep them attached to their underlying tissue. This method may also preserve your ability to breastfeed, though there’s a small chance breast surgery may hinder you from breastfeeding. We recommend you are finished adding to your family before you consider a breast reduction, as future pregnancies could affect your satisfaction with the results of your surgery.

Dr. Cambiero may use other incision techniques in some instances. Women whose breasts contain a significant amount of fatty tissue may find that liposuction alone provides a sufficient reduction in their breast size, with only minimal scarring.

Breast Reduction Recovery

When Dr. Cambiero and his surgical team complete your breast reduction, they’ll gently move you to our recovery area. Dr. Cambeiro may insert small drainage tubes beneath the breast to prevent fluids from accumulating. He will dress the wounds with gauze dressings and apply a surgical garment or bra. We ask you to bring a responsible adult with you to the surgery center to drive you home and stay with you for several hours.

You will need to avoid strenuous activities such as bending, lifting, and sports for about three weeks. Avoid drinking alcohol, as it can lead to fluid retention and delays recovery.

You will probably feel tired and sore for a few days following your breast reduction surgery, but you will be up and about in 24-48 hours. You’ll be able to control most of your discomfort with medication. Dr. Cambiero will prescribe you antibiotics to take for five days after the procedure to lower the risk of infection.

You should be up and walking in the morning following your breast reduction surgery. We ask you to restrict your diet to something light in the first few days. You should be able to return to work within a few days to a week, depending on the level of activity required for your job.

You can shower 48 to 72 hours after the breast reduction procedure. Be careful not to immerse your incisions in water.
