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:
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ashpole
- 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
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
