What Is a Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that reduces breast size to a more manageable and comfortable level. However, having a breast reduction does not mean you will have a negative effect on your appearance. Instead, it aims to deliver results that leave you both feeling and looking better. When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, breast reduction can be a transformative experience that opens the door to enjoying life even more.

The procedure works by removing a targeted amount of tissue from one or both breasts to achieve your ideal size. We work closely with our patients to find the optimal solution based on their needs and expectations.

Many patients combine breast reduction with a breast lift to achieve a firm shape and lively position of the breasts. For patients with heavy or pendulous breasts, combining breast reduction with a breast lift can produce impressive results that both look and feel great.

Is Breast Reduction Right for Me?

Choosing breast reduction can be a challenging decision, but patients tend to agree that the benefits are well worth it. For patients who experience discomfort or other symptoms due to their breast size, a breast reduction can be the right procedure for them. If you are experiencing any of the following due to large or heavy breasts, then this procedure could be what you have been looking for.

  • Mild to significant pain in your back, shoulder, or neck
  • Painful grooves from your bra strap
  • Nipples point downward due to excess weight
  • Limitations to physical activity due to breast weight and size
  • Rashes, irritation, or infections under your breasts
  • Difficulty sleeping comfortably
  • You notice trouble keeping a straight posture
  • Your breast size does not seem to balance with your body
  • One breast is larger than the other
  • You feel self-conscious about your breasts’ size or appearance

Patients who experience any of these concerns can find the results they want with a breast reduction procedure. To be a breast reduction candidate, it is also important to avoid smoking and to be in overall good health at the time of the procedure.

During your consultation, Dr. Brown can work with you to see if a breast reduction is right for you. He understands the difficulty in making the decision and is by your side to answer any questions and provide an optimized plan for your needs.

What Is the Recovery Like?

Every patient recovers at their rate, depending on their unique procedure and overall health. Generally, patients are able to return home the same day as their breast reduction and can begin recovering right away. After your surgery, we apply bandages, dressings, and compresses as appropriate to facilitate efficient healing. Total recovery time varies, but most patients take about two weeks off from work and need to avoid physical activity. We provide patients with the appropriate medication to control any discomfort and swelling, promoting a rapid and comfortable healing process.

During your follow-up visits, Dr. Brown can examine your progress and let you know when you can return to your daily routine and exercise. For most patients, they can return to mild activity several weeks after their procedure, progressing from there.

When Can I See Results?

The reduction in weight and pull on your body will be noticeable virtually immediately. However, it can take several months to see your final results. Initial swelling goes down quickly, but it can still take time for it to completely subside so you can see your final results. As your body heals, it will adjust to the lessened pull of your breasts, and you should notice relief from symptoms such as back pain, rashes, and any other concerns your breasts caused you.
