Even Small Breast Reductions Can Yield BIG Results

Breast reductions in women are the top plastic surgery procedure with regard to patient satisfaction of the outcome. When performed appropriately by a good plastic surgeon, it is almost unheard of that a woman regrets having undergone the procedure.

And the reason?

The chronic, unrelenting physical discomfort associated with large breasts is so tiring and annoying that improvement or alleviation of the symptoms following breast reduction surgery is so welcome even if the aesthetic outcome is not top-notch. Of course, there are also many other issues that are addressed by the surgery such as the difficulty in finding clothes that fit, problems finding attractive but non-revealing clothing, bra shopping nightmares, and garnering unwanted attention to one’s chest.

My goal as a plastic surgeon is not just the improvement or resolution of the constellation of symptoms associated with large breasts but also to provide an aesthetically pleasing result that includes size, shape, symmetry and position with as inconspicuous scars as possible.

Interestingly, it doesn’t even take a very large breast reduction to make a world of difference in these untoward issues. Yes, removing 4, 8 or even 16 pounds of breast tissue can be dramatic and life changing but even taking off less than a pound total can make a substantial difference for many women.

The following 19 year old patient of mine was having a lot of symptoms associated with her 34D breasts including when engaging in a variety of physical activities including sports (photos A, C and E). She wanted to be smaller as in a “C” cup but did not want to be small. A breast reduction was performed with an average of less than 12 ounces removed per side which translates to under a pound and a half total (photos B, D and F).

Her symptoms have been alleviated including with strenuous activities and she is quite ecstatic with her results including final cup size.
