Breast Reduction Can Correct:

Overly Large Breasts

Having excess fat and breast tissue can lead to an unbalanced and disproportionate frame. This lack of harmony creates both physical and emotional discomfort. Breast reduction allows women to achieve more natural proportions.

Pain Associated With Large Breasts

The weight of overly large breasts often leads to back, neck, and shoulder pain. Bra straps can create divots in the shoulders, and some sports and exercises can be difficult and painful. Breast reduction targets the underlying cause of this discomfort so you can fully participate in the activities you want.

Body Insecurities

Many women with cumbersome breasts develop them during adolescence. This early development often leads to body-image and confidence issues. Breast reduction can aid those suffering from embarrassment and provide a more balanced figure.

Breast Reduction Options

Dr. Durand and Dr. Careaga perform breast reduction surgery under general anesthesia to ensure a painless procedure. This surgery typically takes between two and four hours, after which you are generally free to go home to rest and recover. During this procedure, your doctor removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to result in smaller, more compact, and less cumbersome breasts.

Surgical Breast Reduction

Surgical breast reduction targets the excess breast tissue that often develops during adolescence. To perform this, Dr. Careaga or Dr. Durand makes small incisions under the breast and around the areola to remove excess breast tissue and reposition the nipple to a higher, more aesthetically pleasing position. Surgical breast reduction restores a proportionate, natural breast appearance.

Liposuction Breast Reduction

Although you can gain weight in the breasts, it isn’t always easy or possible to lose it once it is there. For women whose large breasts are due to an excess of breast fat, liposuction can be performed. While liposuction can remove excess fat in a less invasive manner, it cannot remove breast tissue and is not always an alternative to surgical breast reduction.

Combining Procedures

Breast reduction, whether it is surgical or done using liposuction, is commonly combined with a breast lift to remove excess skin and lift the remaining tissues. Excess tissue and fat weigh the breasts down, which can lead to premature sagging. A breast lift restores the breasts to a more youthful position.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Candidates for breast reduction are over the age of 18 and have fully developed breasts. Many women seek out breast reduction to ease the physical and psychological discomfort of overly large breasts. Back, neck, and shoulder pain, skin rashes, and embarrassment are all reasons to consider breast reduction. Candidates for this procedure should be in good general health, be willing to stop smoking for at least four weeks before and after surgery, and have realistic expectations of their results.

  • The results of your breast reduction are long lasting when they are paired with a healthy lifestyle. Pregnancy or additional weight gain may affect the appearance of your breasts, and breast reduction will not stop the natural progression of aging. The skin of your breasts will continue to age at the same rate as it would have before your surgery.

  • Breast reduction is generally safe and effective. While rare, complications can occur. These complications include:

    • Anesthesia risks
    • Infection
    • Bleeding
    • Prolonged swelling
    • Changes in skin and nipple sensation
    • Breast asymmetry
  • There is no requirement that you wait until after you have children, and many women choose to undergo this procedure before getting pregnant. Breast reduction will not affect your pregnancy, and many patients are still able to breastfeed to some degree after their surgery. You should note, however, that the results of your surgery may be altered by pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding.
