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.
