A Breast Reduction is a procedure to remove excess breast tissue to reduce the size and weight of the breasts.
The procedure has both medical and cosmetic benefits as it simultaneously reduces and lifts the breasts. These considerations account for the location of the incisions and every effort is made to make them as short as possible. The final size and shape is meant to be proportional to your height and frame size.
The Breast Reduction Consultation
A thorough discussion of your desires and anticipated outcomes is the first step in the consultation process. An examination of the breasts to evaluate symmetry, balance and skin quality follows. After a review of your medical history and medications a specific plan is devised. This plan includes the most appropriate surgical option, costs involved, etc.
