Breast reduction plastic surgery: a procedural overview for prospective patients

Breast reduction surgery can lift the physical and emotional burden of too-large breasts.

By John G. Apostolides, MD

Breast reduction plastic surgery is an effective and highly beneficial solution for women with oversized breasts. While many people think of breast surgery purely in the context of breast enhancement, there are plenty of patients who suffer from physical, emotional and psychological problems due to breasts that are too large, heavy or disproportionate to the rest of the body. When performed by a board certified plastic surgeon, breast reduction surgery is a safe way to adjust the size and shape of the breasts to suit each patient’s individual vision.

There are many different reasons why women choose to undergo breast reduction surgery, ranging from insecurity or the desire for a more flattering appearance to chronic neck and back pain caused by oversized breasts. When the breasts are not proportionate to the rest of the body, it can result in physical and emotional stress and fatigue. In the face of these symptoms, some women may wish to reduce the size of their breasts, and to adjust their shape for a more appealing look. At SK Clinic, we begin each breast reduction treatment with a complimentary consultation, during which we discuss the patient’s desired breast size and shape and customize our procedural plan accordingly for optimal satisfaction.

Breast reduction surgery is performed through the removal of excess tissue, fat and skin. During the procedure, it is also possible to reshape the areola to correct stretched or skewed positioning, all while maintaining blood and nerve supply to the area for consistent sensation. Over the years, our talented surgeons have experienced particular success with breast reduction surgery: patients at SK Clinic are consistently delighted with their results, and report an improvement in overall physical and emotional satisfaction.
