What Are The Benefits Of A Breast Reduction?
Although a number of individuals might desire to grow the shape of their breasts, for some, unnaturally large breasts have the potential to negatively influence their everyday lives and confidence. A breast reduction in Tampa, FL at Watt Plastic Surgery & Med Spa gives you many benefits to achieve your desired look and enhance your well-being, including:
- Helps with skin chafing
- Takes away spinal pressure

Who can have this surgery?
Women of all ages can have breast reduction surgery, even those still in their teenage years. If you decide to undergo the procedure before fully developed breasts are present, you may need a follow-up procedure later. Reduction surgery may present heightened risks for smokers, people with diabetes or heart issues, or obese people. It’s also important to consider that breast reduction surgery may leave you with some scarring on the breasts.
Women who plan to have children may want to wait for breast reduction surgery. It can be more challenging to breastfeed after this procedure. Additionally, if you’re planning to lose weight in the future, you should likely wait to achieve a healthy weight that you intend to maintain before a breast reduction.
After a successful breast reduction procedure, you’ll likely experience improved self-esteem, reduced pain in the upper body, and a greater ability to participate in physical activity. Contact Watt Plastic Surgery today to learn if breast reduction surgery is right for you.
What is Breast Reduction surgery?
Breast reduction is also known as reduction mammaplasty. This surgical procedure can help women achieve a proportionate breast size to eliminate pain or discomfort and help with emotional stress.
Breasts that are very large in proportion to a woman's body can negatively impact physical and emotional wellbeing. The technical name for disproportionately large breasts is macromastia. Physical discomfort from macromastia caused by the weight of the breasts and can include:
- Inhibited ability to move
- Chronic shoulder, neck, and back pain
- Nerve pain
- Irritated, chafed skin beneath the breasts
Breast reduction solves medical concerns, including macromastia, but it's also for cosmetic reasons. Women may opt for cosmetic breast reduction surgery to improve their body image or help fit into clothes.
What Can I Expect After Breast Reduction?
After surgery, you will be monitored closely in our quiet recovery room and then discharged home to begin the healing process. A small, tube-like draining device will most likely be inserted near the surgical site to reduce swelling and bleeding. A medical sports bra will be put in place for a few days that will improve blood flow to the breasts during the immediate recovery. In a month or so, the breasts will settle, and the post-surgery effects will dissipate. The vast selection of our patients at Watt Plastic Surgery & Med Spa report they feel more weightless, lighter, and more self-assured. Following surgical breast reduction, you can buy the clothes you so desire and feel excited with your new contour. Keep in mind it is still important to maintain a healthy body weight so the results are not compromised.
Breast Reduction Reviews
First and foremost, I would give Dr. Watt more than 5 stars if possible. Pre-kids, my breasts were full, perky, and I liked the way they looked. After having children/breastfeeding/pumping, my breast shrank in size and looked deflated. I knew I wanted to have breast augmentation but was nervous that I wouldn’t find the right surgeon to attain the look I wanted. I found Dr. Watt through Lauren West and so happy I did. I looked at the photos on Instagram and his website and knew that he could achieve the look I wanted. I was fortunate to schedule a consultation and even more fortunate that my consultation was moved up. After meeting Dr. Watt and his staff, it was an easy decision to move forward. I had my surgery and was back to work in 3 days. Surgery was quick, post-op relatively painless, and already have seen amazing results 4 weeks post-op. I have referred all of my friends to Dr. Watt and highly recommend for anyone considering breast augmentation. I’m so happy with the result: natural looking, larger breasts that make my body look more proportional.
I am so happy with my results!!! I went to Dr. Watt for a Breast Augmentation and could not be happier! From my consultation to my surgery, the staff was so accommodating and amazing! Everyone was so kind and made sure that I was comfortable and felt cared for the whole time. The front desk always had a smile on her face, the nurses were SO SWEET (Abby and Alex(a)..if I remember correctly), the manager Avery was incredibly kind and caring and of course Dr. Watt was amazing! I went in for something that would be proportionate to my body and I have never been more happy! I’m very blessed to have such an incredible experience as I have. Thank you Dr. Watt and staff!
If I could give Dr Watt and his team six stars, I would! I found Dr Watt from a friend who also used their services, and from the moment I got there until my last appointment I have felt so cared for. I had never truly felt comfortable in my body and have always wanted a breast augmentation, and I am so happy I decided to go with Dr Watt because I finally love myself now. Every single person you work with there will make you feel so at home and make sure all of your needs are taken care of. Choosing Dr Watt for my surgery was the best decision I ever made! I highly recommend this team, any of my friends and family, who are looking to get any work done.
Dr. Watt & his staff are amazing! I’m SOOO glad I chose Dr. Watt to do my breast augmentation. He gave me the confidence I’ve always lacked!!! Looking at my before and after photos brought tears to my eyes, because I’ve wanted this basically my whole life. Thank you Dr. Watt!
I have wanted a breast augmentation for more than 10 years but I was afraid of not getting the results I wanted. After a consultation and a referral from one of his patients I finally decided to book the surgery and I could not be happier with my results. The teams is always super helpful and supportive and friendly of course! I had a few questions post op and someone was always there to give me an answer. I never had to worry about anything. They took great care of me! I had a lip flip done a month ago and it was an amazing experience. She explained literally everything to me I asked about, which was so comforting. I told her I freak out with needles so made sure I felt good the whole time. It was quick and as painless as possible. I can’t wait to book another appointment with this team! The truly cared about every step of the process and about my care and recovery. Best place to get any kind of plastic surgery/ treatments. I finally look the way I’ve always felt I should and I can’t thank them enough for my results and being so amazing about the whole process. Definitely will be returning. ♥️

Breast Reduction FAQs
Will my nipples be moved?
Usually, the nipples and areola will be shifted up to a central position during the surgery. If a large amount of breast tissue and skin needs to be removed, your nipple-areola complex may need to be moved. Dr. Watt will select a technique like the anchor incision so the nipple and areola can easily move higher. It is also possible to perform an areolatome to reduce the size of the areolas. We will explain your options at your consultation before Dr. Watt helps you decide on the best plan to achieve your goals.
Can I breastfeed after a breast reduction?
Breast reduction surgery can affect your ability to breastfeed. Although some women may still be able to breastfeed after a reduction, other women cannot. It is difficult to know whether your breast reduction will cause you problems with breastfeeding. This is why Dr. Watt suggests that patients be done with breastfeeding before considering breast reduction surgery.
Can my breasts re-grow after surgery?
After breast reduction surgery, your breasts may get bigger or smaller with dramatic weight changes. This is why it's helpful to be at a healthy, stable weight that's easy for you to maintain before your surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Watt will talk to you about the best ways to prepare for your reduction and what you can do afterward to help make sure your results last.
