Many women with unusually large breasts find they are a burden. The weight and size of overly large breasts will limit your clothing choices, attract unwelcome attention, and are the source of great discomfort.

If you are tired of dealing with heavy, large breasts, you are invited to meet with board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Sonya Merriman, for a consultation. As a female plastic surgeon with a reputation for excellence, she can perform arguably the best breast reduction Valdosta, GA has available as well as help you have the breast size and shape you've alwayred wanted.

Women come to Dr. Merriman for breast reduction surgery for the following reasons:

  • Back, shoulder, and neck pain. The weight of overly large breasts can take its toll on the body, resulting in chronic pain in the back, neck, or shoulders.
  • Discomfort during physical activity. The inability to run, jog, or play sports – or even swim without embarrassment can prevent women with unusually large breasts from participating in activities they love.
  • Breasts which appear to be out of proportion with the rest with an unbalanced appearance. If you feel your body is not proportional, this can negatively impact your feelings about your body image.
  • Skin irritation. Many women who have extremely large breasts can develop rashes or skin irritations beneath hanging breast tissue.
  • Difficulty breathing. The extreme weight of large breasts can compress the rib cage, causing difficulty breathing during physical activity such as walking or jogging. The compression of the rib cage can also cause numbness in the chest region.
  • Emotional stress. It can often be difficult for women with overly large breasts to find clothes that fit their bodies, turning shopping into a stressful event rather than a fun and pleasant activity. This can negatively affect your self-confidence and lead to emotional stress.

How does Breast Reduction Work?

Our breast reduction in Valdosta, GA is performed in the comfort of our clinic or at the South Georgia Medical Center under the skilled hands of Dr. Sonya J. Merriman using intravenous (IV) sedation or general anesthesia. Incisions will be made in the breast, the location and number determined by the type and extent of your reduction surgery.

Through the duration of your surgery, the nipple will remain intact so as to not disrupt the blood flow and nerves connected to this area.

Breast Reduction and Liposuction

Liposuction may be performed to remove excess fatty tissue. Any asymmetry between the breasts will be corrected as breast tissue is removed and reshaped to sculpt new, perfectly-proportioned, youthful breasts.

Once your breasts have been reshaped to the satisfaction of Dr. Merriman, your incisions will be closed with tiny, carefully-applied sutures, and the breast tissue bandaged to encourage the healing process.

Your Personal Breast Reduction Consultation

As part of your initial consultation with Dr. Merriman, she will discuss with you your goals in seeking breast reduction surgery and listen intently to your thoughts and concerns. She will thoroughly review the surgical procedures for breast reduction and discuss whether additional breast procedures may be helpful in achieving the figure you envision.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dear Patients,

We are doing our part to limit the spread of COVID-19. We are still here and working but not currently offering treatments. We are available to answer any questions you have. Our number one priority is safety of our patients, staff and our community.

We are seeing our patients who have recently had surgery for suture removal and to make sure your recovery is safe. We will keep the reception area empty and you will go straight back to an exam room. We will wear masks for your protection. Please only bring one person with you and if possible, it would be best if they can stay in your car during your visit.

We are offering Tele-Health visits for Surgical and Non-surgical consultations. It will be done the same way as an in person consultation would be done, except we will use video to communicate with you. This is done using our Electronic Medical Record and ensures your privacy. Having that consultation process done will allow you to schedule surgery and treatments so they can be done as soon as we are able to provide them again. I believe that after this ordeal, we will all be ready to do something nice for ourselves!

We are providing people with the chance to purchase products. We can bring them to your car. You can also purchase gift cards and we are developing several packages we want to offer. We are also shipping products during this time.

We understand all this uncertainty is frustrating and we apologize for the inconvenience. This situation changes day to day and we will keep you updated as we know more.

So what are we doing since we are not filling our schedule doing surgery, lasers, fillers, Botox, Dysport etc?

We are doing staff training. We will continue to brainstorm and think of ways we can provide even more exceptional patient experience.

We will be making videos and continuing to post on social media. Some of these will be educational and some will be to entertain! How entertaining will probably depend on how stir-crazy we get!

Be safe and be smart. Do your part to slow this virus down. And please, support your local businesses as much as possible.
