Breast reduction surgery creates more natural and beautiful breasts to patients suffering from excessively large breasts. Breast reduction provides relief to those who experience the discomfort that large, heavy breasts can cause. Breast reduction surgery works by intelligently removing undue breast tissue and skin, ultimately leading women to enhance their shape and aesthetic size while spending less time frustrated with painful symptoms and the inability to wear certain clothes or perform specific exercises.


Breast reduction is usually performed after breast development has stopped.

  • Breasts that are too large in proportion to a woman’s body frame

  • Back, neck and/or shoulder pain aggravated by the weight of the breasts

  • Indentions (grooving) in their shoulders from tight bra straps

  • Restriction of physical activity due to the size and weight of the breasts


We will remove the extra loose skin and tightened the underlying to form the newly shaped breasts. During surgery, we may use one of the following incision patterns:

  • One around the areola

  • One vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast crease

  • One horizontally in the breast crease


After breast reduction surgery, patients will immediately feel lighter on top. The amount of breast tissue removed during surgery will be based on the initial evaluation and the patient’s preference. Often, the reduction results in a cup or two smaller from the original breast size. For the first several weeks, our doctor will recommend the use of a compression bra to protect the breasts. Patients may go back to work within 5-7 days and may resume physical activities (such as exercise) between 6-8 weeks post-operative. Nipple sensitivity will return gradually within the first year.
