A breast reduction procedure, or reduction mammaplasty, is a specialized procedure designed to remove excess breast fat, tissue, and skin to achieve a smaller and more proportional breast size. It is an effective solution for alleviating the pain and discomfort that many women suffer from as a result of enlarged breasts. A breast reduction can not only improve the size and shape of breasts, but it can also improve the overall well-being of women and boost their self-confidence.

A breast reduction is not only an option for addressing a medical or comfort issue, but it can also be a successful remedy for those who are unhappy with their breast size. You can now achieve the breast size and shape that you desire.

A breast reduction is performed in our fully accredited, AAAASF-certified surgical facility. During the procedure, the targeted excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin is then removed. The size and shape are tailored to your goals and preferred shape and size. Our plastic surgeons use a lollipop scar all the way around the border of the areola and then vertically down to the breast crease. The incisions are then closed using a specialized method, bringing together the tissue while reshaping the now smaller breast. This technique will help achieve a smaller and natural-looking breast with less scarring.

Following a breast reduction procedure, the results can be immediately noticeable and continue to progress as the swelling goes down. Satisfaction should grow as your incisions fade and swelling continues to subside. This revolutionary procedure can provide you with smaller, more symmetrical breasts for reclaimed comfort and improved overall well-being.


Anyone experiencing physical discomfort due to enlarged breasts could benefit from a breast reduction for back pain. If you are unhappy with your current breast size, you could also qualify as a candidate.

Breast Reduction FAQ

How many cup sizes can I go down with a breast reduction procedure?

During your consultation, a highly trained Patient Care Coordinator will examine your breast composition and discuss your aesthetic goals to determine what results you can realistically expect. Patients can generally expect to decrease their breasts by one or two sizes, but more may be possible.

Will I have scars after a breast reduction?

Scars are an inevitable part of surgery, but our plastic surgeons use a technique that aims for minimal scarring.

Can I get a breast reduction for back pain?

Yes. The weight of your breasts can cause strain and pressure that result in significant pain in your back and shoulders. Reducing the size of your breasts can alleviate the pain.

How long will it take me to recover?

Recovery is different for everyone, and breast reduction procedures are different from breast augmentation procedures, which have a relatively quick recovery time. Most patients will be able to resume light activities within a couple of weeks, but it may take up to six weeks for a full recovery. You will likely need to take a week off of work after the procedure.

When can I wear a regular bra again?

Once the swelling goes down, you can go back to wearing normal bras. That usually takes about four to six weeks.
