Breast reduction helps women whose large breasts cause self-consciousness, improper posture, pain in the back and neck, indentations from bra straps, skin rashes and other issues. Women usually are considering breast reduction surgery because of physical symptoms, but the procedure also may be performed for cosmetic reasons.
This procedure is one of the most rewarding that I perform, and can greatly improve a woman’s life. After surgery, many of my patients are able to engage in activities that previously were uncomfortable, and most tell me that they wish they had chosen surgery sooner.
Is This You?
Here are some of the common reasons I hear about why a woman is considering breast reduction:

To begin the procedure, I will make an anchor-shaped incision or a lollipop-shaped incision on the breast. The incision goes around the areola and down to the breast crease (lollipop) and may extend within the breast crease (to create an anchor shape) depending on the amount of breast and fat tissue that I will need to remove. Through the incision, I remove fat and glandular tissue and trim the resultant excess skin to produce smaller, lighter breasts that are in proportion to the rest of the body.
A breast reduction is much like a breast lift in terms of the incision location, and all breast reductions will involve lifting the breast in addition to being reduced in size for a satisfying look after surgery.
After breast reduction surgery, your breasts will be bandaged and you will be sent home to begin recovery. Bandages typically are removed after about a week, and at that time you will be instructed to wear a surgical bra for several weeks to support your breasts as they heal. Most women who choose this procedure find that they can now return to social, physical, and intimate activities that they felt isolated from, wear the clothing they desire, enjoy relief from constant pain, and even go on to lose additional weight.
