Women with overly large breasts often experience pain and discomfort in their back and neck as a result, particularly if they have an active lifestyle and are involved in athletics or other physically demanding activities. Breast reduction surgery alleviates this strain and results in a breast size that is proportional you the rest of your body. Breast reduction is also an option for men with conditions such as gynecomastia (a condition in which male breasts are unusually large).
When considering a breast reduction procedure, our plastic surgeon will meet with you to discuss your medical history, your family’s medical history, and the goal you wish to achieve with treatment. She will then develop an individualized treatment plan to help produce the results you desire.
Your breast reduction procedure will consist of the surgical removal of excess fat, glandular tissue and skin via incisions on your breasts. In some cases, we may use liposuction as part of your treatment. After removing these tissues, we will lift and reshape the breast into its proper position and size.
You will be provided with detailed post-treatment instructions to help you recover properly.
