"Dr. Toledo is my hero. I had a breast deformity, one breast 2 cups sizes larger. I have lived my entire adult life too ashamed to wear a t-shirt or bathing suit. After a couple of appointments where he spent a long time with me and my parents, I had my surgery. He did a lift on the left side and a implant on the right. I look perfect! I can't stop thanking Dr. Toledo."- Anonymous / RateMDs / May 10, 2010

Breast reduction is an outpatient surgery and is performed under general anesthesia at the Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center in Dallas, Texas. The duration of the surgery is approximately two to three hours, depending on the extent of the changes being made. During surgery, Dr. Toledo makes an incision around the areola, then vertically downward on the breast and finally across the fold. He then removes excess skin, fat, and breast tissue before lifting the nipple to be centered in the breast. In some cases, he may use techniques to remove excess fat in the axillas, or armpits. The incisions are closed with sutures and the recovery can begin.
What to Expect
Dr. Toledo will provide a bra to wear in the weeks following your breast reduction surgery to support the breasts while healing. He and his staff will provide thorough postoperative instructions and support to facilitate a safe healing process. Many patients are able to return to work in one week but more strenuous activities, such as exercise, should be avoided for several weeks.
The results of breast reduction surgery are evident immediately, but the final appearance of your scars may take several months. Women who undergo this procedure often experience a boost in self-confidence. Among the many benefits of breast reduction are more clothing options, alleviation of back pain and a more proportionate, attractive figure.
