Before & Afters - Breast Reduction

54841 BREAST REDUCTION.png

This is a lady that had a gastric bypass about 6 years ago.  She has lost from 270lbs to 180lbs.  She had previously undergone a belt lipectomy which markedly improved the loose skin around the circumference of her torso and gave her a much more youthful feminine contour to her abdomen, flanks and buttock.  Her bra size was a 38D.  She complained of painful shoulders, painful shoulder grooving that improved when she took off her bra as well as headaches on the back of her head and neck daily.  She got rashes beneath the bra straps which bled on occasion.  Physical therapy had not been beneficial.  She had large, ptotic breasts.  She underwent a small breast reduction.  This got her breasts back up on her chest and off of her stomach.  Her neck, back, and shoulder symptoms have completely resolved.  She is a large C/small D.

Breast Reduction 55659.png

This is a 20YO lady that has been having chronic neck and shoulder pains due to her heavy breasts. Also, she has drooping breasts and has lost the shape that she desires. She underwent a bilateral breast reduction. This has helped her neck and shoulder pain significantly and has helped the grooving that she was getting in her shoulders prior to the reduction. 

At the same time, we also re-shaped her breasts and have the shape looking much better. The reduction in the breasts helps the contour of the body much slimmer. this is a procedure that insurance will often pay a good portion of.

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.

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 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.

This lady I had seen years earlier for consideration for a breast reduction.  In the interim, she was diagnosed with right breast cancer.  She underwent a lumpectomy followed by a breast reduction which allowed manipulation of some of the right breast tissue to fill out the lumpectomy defect.  She subsequently had radiation on the right breast for cancer.  She is shown preoperatively and two months postoperatively.  She has more appropriate size breasts that are symmetrical in size and shape.  They have good projection.  Her neck, back, and shoulder symptoms are completely resolved.
