About Breast Reduction Surgery
Oversized breasts can cause social and functional problems for women. In addition, overly large and unbalanced breasts can create self-image issues and embarrassment, as well as physical pain. Dr. S. Darrell Lee is a plastic surgeon in Port St. Lucie, FL who helps countless women rebuild their confidence and enjoy an active lifestyle through breast reduction surgery. This cosmetic surgery at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center reduces excess fat, tissue, and skin to reshape the breasts to a smaller size. This surgery also reduces the size of the nipples and repositions them so they look natural with the new breast size. In most cases, a breast lift is performed to give a tighter and youthful appearance.
If you have oversized breasts that get in the way of daily life, breast reduction surgery may be a good option to attain the shape you desire. This surgery is an effective procedure for women who have anxiety or cannot lead an active life because of the size of their breasts. If you also suffer from ongoing skin irritations (as well as neck pain), this surgery can reduce these annoyances. It is important patients are at a healthy weight, and find an experienced surgeon like Dr. Lee who understands their aesthetic goals and has the knowledge to produce a natural appearance.
Breast Reduction Reviews
"From the moment I made contact with Dr. Lee’s Office the experience has been nothing short than amazing!! I went in for a consultation and they didn’t make me feel awkward or weird in anyway, I just felt at ease. Dr. Lee took his time to explain the process and might I add he has a fantastic personality and just awesome to work with as are all the staff that work with Dr Lee. My surgery was scheduled and I wasn’t even a little nervous about the procedures which were a tummy tuck and breast reduction. I had the best confidence in the doctor and his staff. The follow up given after surgery was more than I expected, I mean the attentiveness to my healing, and the genuineness of their caring has been amazing, which has been unbelievably appreciated. I love the results that I have and every day I love it even more!! If you are looking to have anything done in plastic surgery Dr.Lee is who I recommend hands down. If I have any further work I will be returning to their office. Thank you again!!! (I could go on and on about how awesome they are but I think this sums it up!)"- B.S. / Google / Nov 11, 2017
"Dr Lee and his staff were wonderful. From the minute I walked in for my consult I knew I was in good hands. I did my research on many PS and then narrowed it down to 4 Drs that specialized in explanting my breast implants due to a rupture. Dr Lee has a wonderful bedside manner , was very knowledgeable and gave me options on what to do , with the pros and cons and what to expect etc. of having them removed. Michele his nurse and coordinator was so helpful and knowledgeable & thorough as well. This was not and easy decision to make having to remove them permenantly , but after doing my research I knew I was in good hands. MB"- M.B. / Google / Feb 11, 2018

"Best decision I've ever made - I have wanted a breast augmentation ever since I was a teenager. I have been to many surgeons for consultations but could never make the commitment. I was so fearful of what could go wrong. When I met Dr. Lee, it was within minutes I knew he was going to be my doctor. He answered every question I had (and I had a lot). I was nervous throughout the entire process, from my first appointment to post op. Him and his entire staff are incredible, I truly felt they cared. They took the time to help me feel at ease with the life changing decisions I was about to make. I received phones calls and text messages just to check on me after the procedure. It is now 5 weeks after my operation and I look and feel amazing. I receive compliments all the time and when I look in the mirror, I tear up with emotion. I can't thank him enough for the making me look/feel beautiful. I would recommend Dr. Lee over and over again."- K. / RealSelf / Oct 02, 2017
"Dr. Lee is fantastic! I’m so appreciative of his staff and their professionalism, more importantly they seem like a big family. They are all caring and personal to their patients. Dr. Lee was very attentive to all my needs and or questions before and after the procedures. I had a breast reduction, liposuction , and a mini abdominal tuck. My body has transformed back to my thirty year old self. I’m 50. I would highly recommend Dr. Darrell Lee and his staff. If I could give 10 stars I would. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️"- M.C. / Google / Aug 05, 2022
Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient treatment and is performed with general anesthesia. The duration of the surgery is dependent upon a few factors, including what incision method is used, the overall technique, and finally, the degree of reduction. The nipple and areola repositioning will also be a factor. In most cases, liposuction is needed for fat removal to decrease the breast size. During the consultation, all of these factors are addressed with Dr. Lee. Potential scarring is also thoroughly discussed as it is common to occur. However, advanced methods have led to a decrease in overall scarring. Depending on the complexity of the reduction, either an anchor or a vertical incision will be used. The breast tissue will be removed, and the remaining tissue and skin will be tightened.
What to Expect
After surgery, patients will be observed closely in our private recovery area and then released home to heal. A draining tube will most likely be placed near the surgical site to help control fluid accumulation. A medical sports bra will be provided for several days that will improve blood flow to the breasts during the initial healing period. Within about a month, the breasts will settle and the post-op effects will fade away. The majority of our patients at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center remark that they feel much lighter and more self-assured. After breast reduction surgery, you can buy the clothes you have always wanted and feel confident with your new look. Remember, it is still important to stay at a healthy weight so the results are not negatively impacted.
