Fast Facts About Breast Reduction Surgery 

Patients who opt for a breast reduction surgery are often those who are looking for pain relief caused by the excessive weight of large breasts. This surgery can often solve problems such as back/neck pain and chafing while improving the size and shape of your breasts.

  • The procedure will take approximately 2-3 hours 
  • You may have to stay in the hospital for approximately 3 days before returning home

Am I a Good Candidate For a Breast Reduction Surgery? 

When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, a breast reduction surgery is a safe and effective way of enhancing your life and appearance. However, before undergoing any cosmetic surgery it’s always important to book a consultation with your surgeon as they can help determine if this is the right procedure for you. 

You may be a good candidate for a breast reduction if: 

  • You’re experiencing pain/discomfort in your back, neck, and shoulders due to the weight of your breasts. 
  • There is skin irritation under your breasts. 
  • Your breasts are too large in proportion to the rest of your body. 
  • Tight bra straps cause grooves in your shoulders. 
  • The size of your breasts restricts you from participating in certain activities. 
  • You feel self-conscious about the size of your breasts. 
  • You are in good general health. 
  • You don’t smoke. 
  • You have realistic expectations of the surgical outcomes. 

During your one on one private consultation with your plastic surgeon, you can discuss your aesthetic goals, general health, and medical history to determine if a breast reduction is a right procedure for you.
