Breast Reduction

Are your breasts causing back pain? Do you think your breasts are too large for you or have they started sagging? 

The techniques of breast reduction have been significantly refined in the last two decades to improve the consistency of results and to maximize safety of the procedure. The breast reduction procedure is also known as a reduction mammoplasty.

At our cosmetic surgery center, we use several techniques, all of which have been proven to be very reliable.

Types of Breast Reduction Surgery

  • With the Peri-areolar approach, we only use one incision at the nipple edge, which allows us to easily remove tissue and tighten the area. This incision ends up at a circle around the nipple areolar.
  • We use a lollipop incision for larger breasts. This incision is a vertical incision that allows removal and tightening of the envelope.
  • We use the anchor shape incision for patients with extra skin. We use this incision to address both vertical horizontal tightening of the breasts.
  • We use a different technique for very large breasts. With this technique, we remove the nipple and the large part of the breast is taken off. We then graft the nipple onto the new, smaller mound.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Large breasts can cause neck, back, and shoulder pain, which can hinder you from participating in sporting activities and even normal daily routines. Because of this, women with unusually large or sagging breasts often choose to have this reconstructive surgery procedure.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, then a breast reduction may be right for you.

Recovery and FAQs

How much will my breast reduction cost?

How long will it take?

It usually takes about an hour to an hour and a half to complete the surgery.

Can I go home the same day?

We perform all surgeries in an outpatient procedure, and you will walk out the same day on your own or with minimal help.

Can I still Breast feed?

Normally, if your nipple sensation is preserved, breast feeding will be preserved too.
Does it take long to heal from my breast reduction?
Normally, the healing is underway by 2-3 weeks post-op. Occasionally, some areas of the incision can take a long time to heal, but this is not abnormal.
Will I have Drains?
Sometimes we use drains if some fluid is anticipated, but most cases are done without the need for drains.
