Achieve Comfort and Confidence with Breast Reduction

Beyond aesthetic considerations, this procedure is often a medical necessity for women facing a myriad of challenges associated with the excessive weight of their breasts. From physical discomfort and skeletal deformities to self-consciousness, Breast Reduction (or mammoplasty) in San Diego offers a solution that enhances both well-being and confidence.

Medical Reasons for Breast Reduction: Restoring Health and Confidence

Women with very large and heavy breasts often encounter medical problems that necessitate the consideration of Breast Reduction surgery in San Diego. Common issues include:

  • Physical Discomfort: Neck, back, and shoulder pain are common complaints, alleviated through the reduction of excessive breast weight.
  • Skin Irritation: Bra strap indentations can lead to skin irritation, causing discomfort and potential complications.
  • Skeletal Deformities and Breathing Problems: The weight of large breasts can contribute to skeletal deformities and breathing difficulties.
  • Yeast Rashes: Moisture and friction beneath the breasts may result in yeast rashes, adding to the physical discomfort.
  • Limited Exercise Ability: The size and weight of large breasts can restrict the ability to exercise comfortably.
  • Emotional Well-being: Women with unusually large breasts may experience self-consciousness and a negative impact on their emotional well-being.

Breast Reduction addresses these concerns by removing excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin, resulting in smaller, lighter, and firmer breasts. The surgery also includes a breast lift, ensuring optimal improvement in breast position.

Procedure Details: Crafting Beauty and Comfort

Our award-winning and experienced surgeons will always provide personalized recommendations based on individual consultations. However, some details of the procedure are usually similar.

Breast Reduction is typically performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical center. The surgery, lasting two to three hours, minimizes associated pain, ensuring a comfortable experience for the patient.

Common techniques for breast reduction in San Diego involve an anchor-shaped incision encircling the areola, extending downward, and following the natural curve of the crease beneath the breast. Another technique, known as a "vertical reduction," utilizes a scar around the areola and vertically down to the bottom of the breast like a lollipop. In some cases, patients may also opt for nipple reduction. Liposuction is a complementary technique that can enhance symmetry by addressing the sides of the breast and/or evening out the size of the breasts.

A Successful Recovery for Lasting Results

While you may resume light activities within a day or two, temporary discomfort may persist for a few weeks. It will be important to avoid heavy lifting or strenuous activities for three to four weeks and to carefully follow all other after-care instructions shared by your surgeon. Most women can return to work and social activities within two weeks, though reduced stamina should be expected for several weeks. Exercise should be limited to stretching, bending, and swimming until energy levels normalize. The importance of a supportive athletic bra during the recovery period is emphasized.

Breast Reduction delivers swift body-image changes, freeing you from the physical discomfort of large breasts, enhancing your body's proportions, and improving the fit of your clothes. The comprehensive benefits make Breast Reduction in San Diego one of the most popular procedures in plastic surgery.
