Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that creates smaller, lighter, and firmer breasts. This surgery, also known as “reduction mammoplasty,” is frequently requested by women who have disproportionately large breasts. Breast reduction is a popular cosmetic and medical procedure for a variety of reasons, including:
  • Chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain
  • Chronic skin irritations or infections
  • Difficulty finding clothes that fit properly
  • Interference with exercise and physical activities
  • Self-consciousness or low self-esteem

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ashpole provides unrivaled personal care to women seeking breast reduction. By having smaller, more proportionate breasts, patients enjoy an array of benefits including pain relief.

Breast Reduction Surgical Procedure

During the procedure, Dr. Ashpole removes excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin from the breasts. He will also move the nipple or reduce the size of the areola to ensure proper proportion and alignment. The result is smaller, more contoured, and lighter breasts.

Good Candidates for Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction surgery is best performed on women who have fully developed breasts. It is also best performed on women who have no plans for future pregnancies or breastfeeding periods. However, in some cases, a patient’s physical or emotional well-being may call for the procedure to be performed sooner.

Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery

Many women report improved body image, easier physical activity, and a reduction in chronic pain after breast reduction surgery. The benefits vary from patient to patient but include a wide range of improvements.
  • Better-fitting clothes
  • Improved posture
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Increased ability to exercise and be active
  • Reduced skin irritation
  • Relief from pain and physical discomfort

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Who is at risk for developing varicose veins?

    Women naturally have a higher chance of developing varicose veins, especially women who are pregnant. However, it is important to keep in mind that roughly 42 percent of men experience varicose veins by the time they turn 60. Family history is one of the biggest factors that determine whether or not you will develop varicose veins.

    If you don’t get your varicose veins removed, they may result in skin sores, skin ulcers, blood clots or even deep vein thrombosis (DVT). It is best to get your veins treated as soon as possible to reduce your risk of developing complications down the road.

    There is a misconception that when Botox is administered, it results in a frozen or numb facial appearance. In simpler terms, patients may feel like they will no longer be able to make facial expressions. This is why it is important to find a qualified surgeon with years of experience administering Botox, as they will be able to judge how much Botox you need and help judge the size of your muscles.

    Botox is extremely effective in temporarily reducing wrinkles! Whether you have forehead lines that you don’t like or you want to get rid of frown lines or crow’s feet, the highly purified toxins in Botox can help erase them!

    The side effects of Botox in Itasca are typically mild and short-lived. You can expect slight bruising, and, in one to five percent of cases, Botox may cause mild droopiness of the eyelid or the eyebrow. This usually goes away within two weeks.

    Though it’s often the best option if your condition has progressed, you can also take measures to avoid varicose and spider veins besides vein treatment. To reduce your chances of developing unsightly veins, it’s important to exercise, avoid standing or sitting for long periods of time, maintain a healthy weight, and/or use compression stockings.
