Breast Reduction in Miami, FL
If oversized breasts are causing you physical discomfort and impacting your self-confidence, breast reduction (“mammoplasty surgery”) at Constructive Surgery can help you achieve a more proportionate and balanced appearance. Dr. Christopher Salgado, our expert surgeon, is dedicated to delivering natural-looking results and ensuring your safety throughout the entire process, to help you regain your confidence and improve your quality of life.
At Constructive Surgery, we understand that every patient is unique and requires personalized care. Dr. Salgado offers different types of breast reduction procedures to accommodate individual needs.
This is the most common technique used for breast reduction. It involves an anchor-shaped incision that circles the areola, extends downward, and follows the natural curve of the breast crease. This allows for the removal of excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin.
In some cases, a vertical incision may be used instead of the traditional incision. This technique involves two incisions – one around the areola and another running vertically from the areola to the breast crease. The vertical incision technique results in less scarring and a quicker recovery time.
For patients with mild to moderate breast enlargement, a scarless reduction technique may be suitable. This procedure involves liposuction to remove excess fat and reshape the breasts, leaving minimal scarring.
Dr. Salgado will assess your individual needs and recommend the most appropriate technique for you during your consultation.

- Immediately after Surgery
You will be required to wear a supportive bra to help reduce swelling and promote proper healing. Some mild discomfort and swelling are normal during the initial days, but any pain can be managed with prescribed medications.
- First Week
Most patients can return to light activities within the first week, including driving, but it is recommended to avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting during this time.
- First Month
By the end of the first month, most patients are able to resume normal activities, including work. However, it is still important to avoid heavy lifting and intense exercise until fully cleared by Dr. Salgado.
Initially, the incision lines may appear red and prominent, but they will gradually fade over time. Dr. Salgado will provide you with scar care instructions to help minimize scarring.
Remember, each patient’s recovery journey is unique, and it’s important to listen to your body and follow all post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Salgado.
