For women with larger breasts, a breast reduction may provide immediate relief of neck, back, and shoulder pain. A breast reduction also provides a degree of breast lifting -- although it is rarely possible to restore the breast to the elevated, tight position of youth. In certain circumstances, a Breast Implant may be added to restore and/or enhance upper pole fullness. This might be done at the same time, or more commonly, as a staged procedure.
For additional support and shaping, Dr. Ghafoori is pleased to offer surgical scaffolding from Galatea: GalaFLEX (R), GalaFORM 3D (R), GalaSHAPE 3D (R). This biologically-derived, resorbable mesh provides temporary support and strength, as well as a scaffold for new tissue growth,
during the healing process.
