Breast Reduction Boston

If you have very large, pendulous breasts, you may experience a variety of medical problems caused by the excessive weight including back and neck pain, severe bra strap grooving and skin rashes.  Many women with excessively large breasts may also have problems finding clothing that fits, and sometimes find that their breast size interferes with personal relationships and other everyday activities.

Breast reduction is designed to remove fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and firmer.  With breast reduction surgery, the breasts are not only reduced to a size which is more proportionate to a woman’s figure, but also shaped and lifted to retain a naturally aesthetically pleasing effect. There are several techniques that I use, tailored to each individual’s needs. 

Liposuction breast reduction is an option for some with moderately large breasts and good skin tone and can eliminate the need for longer scars.  Changes in size may not be as dramatic as with the other techniques but does provide for significant decrease in size.  This technique is often used in younger women with better skin elasticity who are trying to minimize any scars.The two most common techniques that I use have longer medical names but are often called by names that reflect the resulting scars that occur when excess skin is removed.  These are the “anchor” and the vertical lollipop“ types of reduction.  At your consultation we would discuss the differences between the various techniques to help determine which is the best choice for you.Breast reduction is usually performed with general anesthesia.  Although healing and complete shaping of the breasts may take some time, most can return to work in about one week.

Breast reduction, or mammoplasty, is the surgical procedure to reduce breast size and weight through the removal of excess breast tissue, fat and skin. With breast reduction surgery, the breasts are not only reduced to a size which is more proportionate to a woman’s figure, but also shaped and lifted to retain a naturally aesthetically pleasing effect.

Overly large breasts can cause a number of ill effects. I have helped many women who chose to reduce the size of their breasts due to physical and emotional stresses such as chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain, disproportionate breast size to body frame ratio, inability to exercise, skin rash/infection due to excessive sweating, breast ptosis (sagging), breast asymmetry, insomnia, emotional discomfort, etc. Many women with excessively large breasts find it difficult to breath, find clothing that fits, and sometimes find that their breast size interferes with personal relationships and other everyday activities.

Some health plans cover breast reduction surgery for chronic medical conditions. Depending on these factors as well as the amount of breast tissue which needs to be removed and how severe the health issues are, you may want to discuss with your plastic surgeon what your health insurance may cover.

Often, breast reduction is performed simultaneously with a breast lift or mastopexy, since the excess fat and tissue that make up large breasts can lead to sagging. The lift procedure in conjunction with the removal of excess tissue, fat, will ensure a new shapely contour of the breast.
