Breast Reduction

The Problem

Large Breasts typically develop as a teenager and even early on can lead to back pain, headaches, shoulder grooving from bra straps and difficulty finding bras and chronic skin rashes. In addition to the physical manifestations, it can be very difficult to find clothing and bras that fit.   

Once breast growth has stabilized, a breast reduction can also have a positive impact on young women’s self image. Women of all ages can benefit from reduced breast volume. The procedure involves involves removing fat, breast tissue and skin. Along with a reduction in the size of your breast, the breast will be lifted and the areola can be downsized as well to compliment your new, perkier breast.

The Solution

Depending on the size of your breast, we will work with you to find a procedure that is right for you. Some women require only liposuction, while others benefit from a vertical breast reduction, similar to a lollipop lift, that results in smaller scars than the traditional “anchor” technique (Wise pattern breast reduction). 


Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure and its very common for our patients to have their surgery on Friday and return to work on Monday. We like to use a long acting local anesthetic that will last for up to 3 days. At the time of your consultation we will discuss any family plans to make sure that we optimize all aspects of your health and recovery.  If you have any special events coming up, we recommend surgery no less than 8-12 weeks prior to your event to ensure adequate healing and for modifications of any garments.

Dr. Rankin goes above and beyond to care for his patients, answer questions, and ensure the best outcome. He is incredible! I would recommend him to absolutely everyone!

Breast Reconstruction

Dr Rankin was a referral from a good friend. From the start his knowledge and bedside manner was impeccable. He took all the time needed to explain the procedures I was going to have and assured me that he could get the results I was looking for. What was so encouraging to me is his understanding and patience of how long I had been wanting to do this. After the procedure he was there 24/7 for any questions. He called in additional scripts when needed and even went above and beyond to get some in home therapy services to provide hydration and vitamin therapy! All I can say is Wow! The results are coming, but he has made my journey so much easier and healthier. His knowledge is so expansive not only in surgery but also very resourceful in every aspect of your recovery. Thank you Dr. Rankin!

The office staff and Dr. Rankin were all very attentive, took their time, and were very personable. Both the patient care coordinator and Dr. Rankin sat in the office and answered all the questions I had, plus offered other information about the procedures and recovery I had not thought about. They were very transparent about what would and would not give me the best outcome for the areas I was concerned about. They were organized, efficient, and very welcoming
