Breast Reduction

Patients who undergo breast reduction surgery are most commonly having physical symptoms that make them uncomfortable. Undergoing a breast reduction can usually solve these problems, as well as improve the size and shape of your breasts. In most situations, a breast reduction will allow for better fitting clothes and a more proportional look to the rest of the body.

Breast reduction can be performed at any age, but plastic surgeons usually recommend waiting until breast development has stopped. Childbirth and breast-feeding may have significant and unpredictable effects on the size and shape of your breasts. Nevertheless, many women decide to undergo a breast reduction before having children and believe that they will be able to address any subsequent changes later. If you plan to breast-feed in the future, you should discuss this with your plastic surgeon.

During the consultation, you will be asked about your desired breast size, as well as anything else about your breasts that you would like to see improved. This will help your plastic surgeon to understand your expectations and determine whether they are realistically achievable.
