Breast Reduction in Los Angeles, Orange County and San Francisco
Heavy, disproportionately large breasts can often lead to physical discomfort and pain. Women with larger breasts often experience issues such as back, neck and shoulder pain, trouble performing ordinary chores, and difficulty exercising. Emotional discomfort and problems with self-esteem are often associated with the issue as well. Breast reduction surgery has been known to provide women with life-changing results, both physically and emotionally.
Is Breast Reduction Right for Me?
Many women considering breast reduction find that their clothes and bras or bikinis don’t fit properly over their breasts. Breasts that are too large and out of proportion with the rest of the body can make it difficult to find properly fitting clothing and also cause added stress to the neck, shoulders and back. Women with these problems likely have difficulty exercising due to pain, and often feel uncomfortable with unwanted stares.
Breast reduction surgery helps to bring the breasts to a more proportionate size with the rest of your body, so you can go on wearing the clothes you want and moving around more comfortably.
What is Breast Reduction Surgery?
We perform breast reduction surgery by removing the excess fat, skin and breast tissue causing the large size of your breasts. In some cases, your main problem may be excess fatty tissue in the breasts, which can possibly be solved with liposuction alone. However, excision of breast tissue and skin is necessary for more extreme cases. Your nipple and areola may also need to be resized if it has been stretched or is oversized. One of our doctors will discuss your procedure with you and outline the type of surgery that will be required.
Many of our patients are candidates for the newer, vertical reduction procedure. This method performed at Wave Plastic Surgery minimizes the amount of scarring and provides you with a more projected, youthful shape. If you have very large breasts or significant amounts of drooping, you will likely need a more traditional method of reduction.
Breast lift and reduction procedures are performed on an outpatient basis. This means you can go home the same day as the surgery with the care of a loved one. Dissolving sutures placed under the skin help make the recovery period easier on you. A pain pump is available for the procedures, which makes the recovery much easier. Most women feel well enough to return to their jobs in about a week.
Before you know it, you will be trying on all of the clothes you weren’t able to wear before. You will also be able to move around a lot more comfortably, meaning you can now go for a run without having to stop suddenly due to physical pain. Our breast reduction patients will often come to us following their surgery, excited about the dramatic changes in their lifestyles thanks to their procedure.
