What Is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction surgery is an operation to remove extra fat, tissue, and skin from your breasts.If you have large breasts that are out of proportion to the rest of your body and causing neck pain, back pain, or other symptoms, you may be considering breast reduction surgery.

Most women who get breast reduction are very satisfied with the results. Men with conditions such as gynecomastia (in which male breasts are abnormally enlarged) may also have it.

Because it's major surgery, you should know the benefits, potential complications, and what's involved in recovery.

Before the surgery, you’ll meet with Dr. Priti Patel to talk about your medical history and any prior surgery. We will show you images of prior work to help describe the procedure in detail.

FAQ's

How long does breast reduction surgery take?

The average breast reduction surgery can take three to four hours to complete but can vary based on the size of your breasts.

Is breast reduction risky?

All surgeries carry small risks of complications. However, breast reduction surgery itself is generally very safe. We would advise to avoid smoking prior to surgery to minimize any risks. Weight loss is also helpful.

Should I lose weight before breast reduction?

If you are planning to lose a significant amount of weight, we recommend doing this prior to surgery. Weight loss before or after breast reduction surgery can affect the resulting shape of the breast.

Is the breast reduction procedure painful?

Anesthesia will be given during the procedure, but you might feel sore immediately after the surgery. Generally the procedure is well tolerated after the first few days.
