This is a 26YO lady that has chronic neck and shoulder pains due to her large breasts.  She desires a breast reduction.  Breast reductions have several benefits.  They significantly help neck and shoulder pains by removing the excessive weight of the breasts.  It helps the patient look a lot smaller in the chest area and the breasts are reshaped and uplifted.  

 

Breast reductions are done to make you look and feel better.  Fortunately insurance will cover a good portion of this procedure.  Below is a patient that desired a breast reduction. The pictures are a couple of months after the breast reduction.  You can see that the breasts have been reshaped and uplifted as well as made smaller. She still has plenty of breast tissue to make her proportional to her body.

These are pre and post operative photographs on a middle-aged lady who presented for a breast reduction.  She is a little over 5 feet tall and about 150lbs.  Her bra size preoperatively was a 38F.  She had always been large breasted even when she was a teenager. She had painful posterior neck pain, painful shoulders, and deltoids.  She had headaches on the backside of her head with numbness and parasthesias involving the central fingers.  She tried numerous support bras to no avail.  She got rashes beneath the breasts.  She underwent a breast reduction maintaining the nipple areolar complex with a superior medial pedicle.  I removed 535 grams from the right breast and 745 grams from the larger left breast.  The post operative course was entirely unremarkable.  She has near complete resolution of her symptoms.  She has maintained nipple sensation.  Her bra size is now a large C.  She has gotten a very nice result from her surgery.  The scars are flat and soft and the redness will continue to improve over time.

This is a 32YO lady from Destin, Florida.  She desires some cosmetic improvement of her large, drooping breasts.  Since she is developing grooving in her shoulders and has neck and shoulder pains, insurance will pay for a good portion of this procedure.  She underwent a bilateral breast reduction as well as fat grafting to the upper poles of the breasts.  She had lost all the fullness in the upper breasts because all the breast tissue was dropping below the inframammary crease.  

 

Now the breasts are in good position with fullness in the upper poles.

This is a lady that came to see me for consideration for a breast reduction.  She is 5’9” tall and weighs 175lbs.  Her bra size is a 36G.  As a teenager, she weighed about 130lbs. and was a DDD.  Her breasts did not get appreciably larger with pregnancies. She complains of painful shoulder grooving, posterior neck pain, and occipital headaches.  She had actually been treated for migraines with Imitrex. She had numbness and tingling in her hands and fingers.  She had rashes beneath the breasts that were treated with over the counter preparations. The size of her breasts hindered her ability to exercise.  She underwent a breast reduction with free nipple grafting removing 800-900 grams from each breast.  Photographs are 2 months post operative.  She has had complete resolution of her symptoms.  Her bra size is a C cup.  The breasts are symmetrical and nicely shaped.  They are soft.  Her scars remain flat and soft and are beginning to fade.  She now has smaller more appropriately sized breasts, which has facilitated a more active lifestyle.

This is a 50YO lady from Destin, Florida that has been complaining of chronic neck and shoulder pains due to her large breasts.  She has lost all the superior fullness of the breasts and all the breast tissue is below the inframammary fold.  She wants some uplifting and more superior fullness as well as having the breasts reduced.  She underwent a bilateral breast reduction with fat grafting to the upper pole of the breasts.  This gave her more superior fullness.  This procedure is done primarily because of the neck and shoulder pains and insurance usually helps pay a good portion of this procedure.  In the pre-op pictures you can see that the breasts are quite low and the nipples are pointing inferiorly.  She has lost all the superior fullness of the breasts.  In her post op pictures the nipples are pointing anteriorly and the fat grafts have been placed in the upper poles of the breasts to give her more superior fullness.  She now has good cleavage and her clothes fit her much better.  Overall, she has gotten a nice result.
