Breast Reduction

For many women, breast reduction is not just a cosmetic procedure. Because of their excessive weight, very large breasts can cause a wide range of medical problems, including health concerns like back and neck pain, indentations from bra straps in the shoulders, skin irritation, skeletal deformities and even breathing problems. Large breasts can also attract unwanted, inappropriate attention that can lead to self-consciousness.

At Kaufman Plastic Surgery, we offer breast reductions for women who would like a smaller or more proportionate breast size. We invite you to see why so many women have selected us for their breast enhancement procedures.

What to Expect

Breast reduction, or reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure that removes fat, tissue and skin to:

N

Make breasts lighter, smaller, and more proportional to the rest of the body

N

Reduce the size of enlarged areolas (the darker skin encircling the nipple)

N

Eliminate the physical and emotional discomfort associated with large breasts

For some women, extra large breasts are part of the burden of being overweight. Yet, those who successfully drop the excess pounds are sometimes dismayed to find out their breasts didn’t shrink quite as much as the rest of their body. A post-weight loss breast reduction may offer a solution for these women.

Your Consult

You’ll have a consultation at Kaufman Plastic Surgery prior to your breast reduction. During your visit, Dr. Kaufman will carefully review your needs and expectations. The consultation is an opportunity to specify your goals for treatment, as well as discuss any other procedures you may have along with your breast reduction.

During your consult, you’ll be given detailed instructions for before and after your surgery. 

Preparing for Your
Breast Reduction

Reduction mammoplasty can take anywhere from 2 to 5 hours. During the procedure, liposuction may be used to remove excess fat from the armpit area, though techniques for each patient vary. Incision placement, which determines the appearance of scars, is dependent upon the size of your breasts and your desired reduction.

Recovery &
Results

Although your individual experience may vary, recovery from breast reduction usually requires 7 to 10 days with gradual return to activities over the following 4 to 6 weeks.
