About Breast Reduction Surgery

Abnormally large breasts can cause social, functional, and physical concerns for women. In addition, uneven and very large breasts can create insecurity, self-confidence issues, and embarrassment, as well as aches and pains. Dr. Glenn Lyle is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Raleigh, NC who continues to help countless women regain their confidence and feel more comfortable through surgical reduction of the breasts. This aesthetic surgery at Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center reduces excess breast fat and skin, as well as unhealthy tissue to redefine and reshape the breasts to a more compatible size. Breast reduction surgery also reshapes the size of the nipple/areola area and repositions them so they are symmetric with the new breast size. In most cases, a breast lift can be incorporated to produce a tighter and younger-looking appearance.

Ideal Candidates

If you are challenged with excessively large breasts that create obstacles in your daily life, cosmetic breast reduction may be a good option to get the figure you wish for. This surgery is helpful for women who experience emotional stress or find it difficult to lead an active life because of the weight of their breasts. Also, if you deal with ongoing skin problems as well as back or neck pain, this surgery can eliminate many of these annoyances. It is important patients are at a normal weight, and find a trained surgeon like Dr. Lyle who understands their desired outcome and has the aptitude to produce a pleasing and natural appearance.

Surgical Technique

Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure performed with general anesthesia. The timing of surgery is dependent upon several factors including the complexity of the incision, the overall reduction technique, and finally, how much reduction is required. The nipple and areola repositioning is also a factor. For most patients, liposuction is necessary for fat and tissue elimination to decrease the breast size. During the private consultation, all of these factors are addressed with Dr. Lyle. Scarring is also discussed as it is common for scar lines to be visible, although surgical skill and advanced methods have led to a noticeable reduction in the visibility of scars. Depending on the patient's anatomy, the reduction will be done either with an anchor or a vertical incision. The breast tissue will then be removed, and the existing tissue and skin will be pulled tight and secured.

What to Expect

After surgery, you will be observed closely in our comfortable recovery area and then discharged home to heal. A small, tube-like draining device will most likely be implanted near the surgical site to reduce drainage from swelling and bleeding. A medical sports bra will be worn for several days that will boost blood flow to the breasts during the initial healing period. Within about a month, the breasts will settle and the post-op effects will diminish. The vast majority of our patients at Lyle Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center remark they feel lighter and relieved and more reassured. After breast reduction surgery, you can buy the clothes you could not wear before and feel enthusiastic with your new shape. Remember, it is important to adhere to a healthy lifestyle so the results are not affected in a negative way.

Great Experience - I am very happy with my experience with Dr Lyle. I wanted my breast implants out and didn't know what else I should do to look somewhat normal afterwards. He suggested a lift and I asked for a fat transfer, so I had it all done together. He was honest and caring. I like his bedside manner. I always get in early for my appointments. His office staff is nice as was the OR staff during my...

Tummy is flat & toned & breasts are beautiful & proportional to my body - Dr. Lyle recently performed my mommy makeover procedure and I cannot recommend him highly enough. From the initial consultation to the post-op care, Dr. Lyle’s expertise was evident every step of the way.After having dreamed of a mommy makeover for 10 years, when the time finally came I was very nervous. Dr. Lyle took the time to thoroughly explain the procedures and answer every question I had, ensuring that I felt comfortable and well-informed. His attention to detail and precision in his work absolutely sets him apart as a skilled plastic surgeon. This truly was a life changing experience for me and I am beyond thrilled with the results. My tummy is flat and toned (my belly button is gorgeous!) and my breasts are beautiful and proportional to my body. The results are natural looking and beyond what I ever dreamed possible. Thanks to Dr. Lyle, I feel like a brand new person. The surgery not only gave me back my pre-pregnancy body but boosted my confidence and self-esteem and gave me a new outlook on life. I am absolutely overjoyed with my new body. Words could never express adequately the gratitude I feel to Dr. Lyle and his wonderful staff. He is an exceptional surgeon and his nurses and staff are a joy to be around.If you are considering any plastic surgery, but particularly abdominoplasty, breast reduction or liposuction, I highly recommend Dr. Lyle for his outstanding skills, excellent patient care and dedication to achieving natural-looking results. Thank you, Dr. Lyle, for making this experience the best thing I’ve ever done for myself.
