Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery is an extremely rewarding procedure that can help both women and men to free themselves of the restricting and sometimes embarrassing effects of overly large breasts. Our breast reduction patients are usually first led to our office when the problems associated with their large breasts become a hindrance that they can no longer tolerate in their daily lives.

 

Breast reduction surgery is designed to help women remove a number of concerns related to having overly large breasts, including:

  • Excessive sagging or drooping
  • Back, shoulder, and neck pain
  • Self-consciousness
  • Indentations and pain caused by the bra-strap
  • Inability to wear certain types of clothing

 

The aim of breast reduction surgery is to correct these and other issues you may be experiencing because of breasts that are too large and having an effect on your appearance, self-esteem, and general comfort. At the time of your initial consultation, you will have an opportunity to discuss all aspects of breast reduction surgery and any specific concerns about your breasts with your selected plastic surgeon. You will also be given the opportunity to see the possible outcome of your procedure before even stepping foot inside the operating room. With state-of-the-art 3D Crisalix imaging technology, our plastic surgeon can show you a computer-generated model incorporating a scan of your breast area and information compiled to form a graphic image of the likely results.

 

For men who are affected by overly large breasts, male breast reduction surgery (gynecomastia), is also available. Our surgeons can provide effective breast reduction for men who are experiencing this common condition. For more information on this procedure, please visit the Gynaecomastia page of our site.
