Breast reduction surgery is designed to relieve neck, back and shoulder pain. The procedure also substantially improves the appearance of sagging and heavy breasts. The operation changes lives! Breast reduction surgery helps women achieve their best possible selves by allowing new clothing options, new athletic endeavors and a vastly improved self-image. Breast reduction surgery is done while patients are asleep in the operating room. The recovery time is relatively short, with most working women missing 4-5 days of work. Breast reduction scars are typically excellent, and improve with time. A typical breast reduction scar three months after surgery is pictured below.
