New Orleans Breast Reduction
More than any other type of breast enhancement, New Orleans breast reduction procedures can be as much a medical necessity as an elective cosmetic surgery, because excessively large breasts can result in both physical pain and psychological scarring. Insurance companies recognize this and that's why some will pay for a breast reduction.
Also known as reduction mammaplasty, women in New Orleans opt for breast reduction for a variety of important physical reasons – chronic neck and back pain, worsening posture, rash under the breasts, pain caused by bra straps, and difficulty breathing. Then, there's the psychological impact – the inappropriate staring and insensitive comments. Individually, any one of these reasons would be worth discussing with Dr. Cooper the benefits of breast reduction. Taken together, excessively large breasts can simply be unbearable.
Dr. Michele Cooper is now offering Vectra® 3D Imaging, an innovative system that lets you visualize your problem areas and truly customize your cosmetic experience.
During your initial consultation in our Mandeville office, you can talk with Dr. Cooper about the changes you hope to achieve, and she will work with you to determine the approaches to best accomplish your cosmetic surgery goals. Dr. Cooper likes to schedule an entire hour to meet each new patient. This provides a friendly, unhurried atmosphere for her to provide you with all the information you will need to make educated decisions about plastic surgery, specifically breast reduction.
Dr. Cooper will ask you about the precise changes you desire, discuss incision size and location, resultant scars, as well as the risks and benefits associated with breast reduction. Additionally, she will talk with you about whether you plan to breast feed after the procedure. With this information, you and Dr. Cooper will be able to determine the procedural strategies that will best meet your expectations.
Two weeks prior to your breast reduction, you will meet with Dr. Cooper again to discuss all pre- and post-operative instructions, and to confirm the procedural plans previously discussed. A mammogram may be required prior to a breast reduction.
Breast reduction is performed at an outpatient facility. The procedure itself could take from 2 to 4 hours. Often times, a breast lift is performed along with a breast reduction. A family member or friend will need to drive you home and provide assistance during the first 24 to 48 hours. You and your care giver will both be provided with Dr. Cooper's cell phone number for any concerns or questions.
Most women go many years contemplating breast reduction only to wonder later why they waited so long. Don't wait another day, because breast reduction isn't just breast enhancement – it's life enhancement. Come see why so many New Orleans, Mandeville and Slidell area women trust Dr. Cooper to achieve their most beautifully enhanced selves.
