Breast Reduction Washington, DC

Breast ReductionA breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to make your breasts smaller, lighter and firmer. It is often performed for relief of back, neck and shoulder pain, and skin irritation as a result of the weight and size of a woman’s breasts. A breast reduction involves the removal of fat, glandular tissue, and skin from your breasts.

The procedure is generally performed on an outpatient basis. Patients usually return to work within two weeks. Scars fade over several months to a year or more. Results will vary according to aging, pregnancy, or changes in weight. The scar location varies depending on the size of your breasts and the desired size postoperatively. The larger the amount of breast and fat removed, the larger the scar.

His hands and surgical skills are legendary

I have known Dr. Olding for over 20 years. He has worked on many close to me and myself. He is the most honest, ethical plastic surgeon I know. He doesn’t sugar-coat or tell Ugly Betty she will look like a movie star after he is done and sucks 100 lbs out of her. I refer to him frequently and would highly suggest anyone considering cosmetic surgery should at least get an opinion from him because HE WILL BE HONEST. His hands and surgical skills are legendary.

Patients may experience temporary soreness, swelling, bruising, or a change in nipple sensation. Potential complications include infection, fluid retention, injury to the skin, rippling or bagginess of the skin, asymmetry, skin discoloration, or excessive scarring, and in some cases, nipple necrosis (i.e., death of the nipple, which is extremely rare).
