Over 20 years as the leading
plastic surgeon in Orange County, California
Of all of the procedures that plastic surgeons perform, the procedure that ranks among the highest in patient satisfaction is breast reduction surgery. Orange County plastic surgeon, Dr. Milind K. Ambe, performs this procedure at his Newport Beach office.
What to Expect
Breast reduction surgery typically removes skin and breast tissue from the breasts in order to lift and reshape, reducing thee overall size. Many of our patients are looking to solve and alleviate pain and discomfort associated with disproportionate breasts.
Some of the main issues solved when a breast reduction surgery is performed include: chronic back, neck and shoulder pain, nerve pain, chronic rash or skin irritation, difficulty fiting into clothing and bars.
Recovering from Surgery
After the surgery, your breasts will likely feel swollen, uncomfortable, and bruised for a few days, however, this pain should not be severe. You will also be wearing a surgical bra or an elastic bandage over the gauze dressings. Your surgeon will prescribe certain medications for you as well, in order to help relieve any discomfort you’ll feel as you heal.
A soft support bra can replace the surgical bra or bandages after a couple of days. For three to four weeks, you will need to wear this bra constantly over a layer of gauze. Also, your doctor will recommend removing the stitches after a week or two.
You will be allowed to apply moisturizer to your breast area several times a day if you feel that it is dry after the surgery. Be aware that you should avoid contacting the skin around the suture areas.
You may lose some feeling on your breast skin and in your nipples, which tends to be caused by the swelling that follows surgery. This is expected, and the numbness will fade away over the course of six weeks. There are exceptions, however, as some patients report feeling numb for longer.
Before & After
Our Client Stories
Turn the Clock Back
After being chosen by Tamra Barney, one of the Real Housewives of Orange County, for a breast augmentation in Season 3, Dr. Ambe was chosen once again to perform a facelift – except this time on her mother. Tamra and her mother, Sandra Baker, ultimately chose Dr. Ambe due to his reputation as one of the best facelift surgeons in Newport Beach/Orange County and one that specializes in very natural facelift results. After her incredible results last season, Tamra knew that Dr. Ambe would give her mother the perfect “turn the clock back” look she desired.
