Breast Reduction | Reduction Mammaplasty

Breast Reduction, although actually a reconstructive surgical procedure, is used to correct marked breast enlargement, out of proportion to body size, and causing significant back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as a tendency to rashes and yeast infections in the folds under the breasts. The cause varies but is generally associated with genetic pre-disposition, hormone fluctuation (e.g. puberty, pregnancy, or menopause), or marked weight variation. Breast Reduction is a surgical method of size reduction of the breasts, relieving the weight burden, and usually producing an improvement in breast shape. Mastopexy or Breast Lift is a similar but distinct technique, designed to cosmetically restore a youthful breast shape and tissue firmness, but not remove any breast tissue. Insurance has traditionally covered the cost of Reduction Mammaplasty surgery (but not cosmetic Mastopexy), however, many HMO's and similar discount insurance schemes have found it convenient to deny this service by falsely labeling it "cosmetic surgery". Be aware that if you are trapped in one of these limited service insurance plans you have the legal and contractual right to appeal denials of necessary Reconstructive Plastic Surgery services. Every state has an Insurance Commission which oversees operations of such insurance schemes, and they are usually responsive to consumer healthcare complaints. Pre- and post-operative photos of several representative patients are displayed below.

Case 1 : A 23 year old woman with large breasts out of proportion to her 125 pounds underwent Breast Reduction to correct the disproportion.

Scars are located beneath the breast around the nipple/areola, and down the front of the breast in the shadows.

I have been very perplexed lately.. had the tummy tuck 1 year post op and breast reduction/ lift 8 months post op, and I still focus on the other areas of sagging skin... from head to thigh..why couldn't I just be satisfied w/ those two areas? Unfortunately how I see it is that we are all canidates for full body lifts there is no getting around it..but in the mean time the emotional aspect of it is more torture for me than having a plump body w/ smoothy silk skin encased by adipose tissue. Aren't you sorry you asked now?

Visit only a certified surgeon to ensure safety and great result. Always do a little background check before you actually entrust your body to the surgeon.
