Breast Reduction

Enjoy Proportionate Breasts

If you have breasts that are too large for your frame, reduction mammaplasty or breast reduction surgery may be the ultimate solution. It can bring your breasts into proportion with the rest of your body while relieving physical discomfort. Smaller breasts can increase your clothing options and your ability to pursue activities you enjoy.

What Is Breast Reduction?

A breast reduction removes excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin from your breasts. There are a number of techniques and incision options that may be considered for your particular procedure. Dr. Gonyon will make a careful assessment of your breasts at your initial consultation to determine what method will best meet your needs.

Depending on the size and weight of your breasts, your procedure may resemble typical incisions used for a breast lift. Typically, for much larger breasts, Dr. Gonyon will choose the Inverted-T or Anchor incision

This includes an oval made around the areola, extends vertically down the breast to the fold and continues horizontally upward along the breast fold in an inverted T-pattern. The Anchor incision pattern allows Dr. Gonyon to remove excess breast tissue, reposition your nipple in a higher location, and tighten the remaining skin around your firmer, smaller breast. 

Dr. Gonyon may also perform liposuction to increase the amount of fat and glandular tissue removed without having to make larger incisions.

Am I A Good Candidate For Breast Reduction?

You may be a good candidate for reduction mammaplasty:

  • If you believe your breasts are too big or pendulous for your build.
  • If you are suffering from back, neck, or shoulder pain caused by overly heavy breasts. 
  • If your breasts prevent you from wearing the clothing you desire.

Should I Also Have A Breast Lift With A Breast Reduction?

For many women, a breast lift is a complementary procedure to a breast reduction and is often included when your breast reduction is performed. Because the breast reduction procedure removed excess tissue and skin, this procedure also creates a more youthful and lifted appearance to the breast in addition to helping reduce the size of your breasts.

What Results Will I See?* 

Patients treated with breast reduction often see: 

  • Relief from back pain, neck pain, and shoulder discomfort.
  • Improved posture. 
  • Reduced stretch marks.
  • Improved respiratory function. 

What Is The Recovery Process Like?*

Each patient is different and Dr. Gonyon will help you with your unique recovery, including follow-up appointments, bandages and more. You can expect to miss one to two weeks of work and should avoid heavy exercise for three to four weeks

Our talented team can help you fully understand the recovery process and work around your schedule to determine when the surgery makes the most sense.

Is Breast Reduction Only For Women?

No. Many men suffer from a condition known as gynecomastia, which results in enlarged breasts. Male breast reduction is an effective and increasingly popular plastic surgery procedure for men who have excess tissue in the chest area.
