Your Breast Reduction Surgery

In a breast reduction, Dr. Waldorf removes fatty and glandular breast tissue, as well as excess skin, so that the breasts are more proportionate with your body. This typically results in a more lifted breast shape and nipple position. The areolas (the darker skin surrounding the nipple) may be resized and reshaped as well.

Breast reduction is a highly customized procedure based on your anatomy and how you wish to look. Incisions are usually made around the areola and vertically on the lower portion of the breast. This does result in scars, but they will fade and soften/flatten within a year. Dr. Waldorf also does whatever she can to retain as much nipple sensation as possible.

The surgery usually takes one to two hours and is performed under general anesthesia. After recovery from the anesthesia, you can return home to be cared for by family or friends.

Recovering from Breast Reduction in Portland

Most women return to work within one to two weeks and resume normal activity about four weeks after breast reduction surgery.

You can expect some bruising, tenderness, and swelling for a few weeks. This discomfort can be managed with pain medication. You may be fitted with a compression bra for a period of weeks to reduce swelling and promote healing.
