Breast Reduction

Overview

A breast reduction surgery produces better body proportions while alleviating physical and emotional discomfort.

When breasts are out of proportion with the rest of your body, they can bring unwanted attention and put strain on the back and neck muscles. Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, balances your breast size with the rest of your body profile and relieves those uncomfortable symptoms while boosting your self-confidence. The result is a better contour and natural looking breast that fit your silhouette.
Our team of board-certified plastic surgeons will customize your breast reduction to your specifications, ensuring that the outcome of your procedure looks natural and meets your expectations.

Are You a Candidate for breast reduction surgery?

Women considering a breast reduction may have one or more of the following concerns:
  • Large breasts that prohibit some activities or the ability to wear certain types of clothing
  • Breasts that are not in proportion to the rest of the body contour
  • Self-consciousness due to the excessive size of the breasts
  • Recurrent back and neck pain due to the weight of large, heavy breasts
  • Skin irritation and rashes due to chafing underneath the breasts
Keep in mind that the breast reduction operation has best results for women that are close to their ideal body weight.

The Recovery Process

After a few hours in recovery, you should be ready to return home to the comfort of familiar surroundings. There will be some swelling and bruising and general soreness for the first few days. Pain medication will be prescribed to ensure a comfortable and relaxed healing process. Patients are often pleasantly surprised at how quick recovery can be from this surgery, with most returning to their daily routine within 1 week.
You will experience a reduction of symptoms related to your large breasts almost immediately, while aesthetic results will continue to improve in the weeks following surgery, as swelling subsides and the breasts heal. Results of breast reduction are permanent.
