Breast Reduction

Many women are affected by breasts that are simply too large for their body frame, which can cause feelings of physical discomfort and self-consciousness about their appearance. Breast reduction surgery from our board-certified plastic surgeon can reduce the size of the breasts for more balanced proportions. This effective procedure can help women who suffer from many symptoms caused by having overly large breasts, including problems fitting into desired clothing, bra-strap indentations, lack of self-confidence, and pain in the upper body. With breast reduction surgery, Dr. Stafford Broumand can decrease the size of your breasts with results that are significantly more proportionate and that can ultimately enhance your overall appearance.

Breast Reduction Recovery and Results

View Gallery

After breast reduction surgery, patients can expect some temporary bruising and swelling in the treatment areas. Any discomfort can be controlled with medication. You will need to wear a supportive bra for a very short time after the procedure in order to facilitate the healing process. Heavy lifting and strenuous activities should be avoided for about four weeks following breast reduction surgery. Most patients are able to return to normal daily routines after about one week. Breast reduction surgery has helped millions of women feel more comfortable and more confident in the way they look.

Dr. Broumand has absolutely changed my life for the best. I had a breast reduction about 2 years ago and I haven’t been the same since. As a smaller girl with tremendous breasts that didn’t fit my body, I spent my entire youth and early adulthood hating the way I looked, covering up, and hiding under big clothes. Dr. Broumand and his entire team made me super comfortable during the entire process, and the results were far beyond my expectations. I have no noticeable scars, I can wear anything I would like and I no longer cower behind my large bras. My new found confidence and happiness was instantly noticeable, and I wound up meeting my future husband right after I had fully recovered. The surgery was the best thing I’ve ever done and I’d do it all over again! Thank you so much Dr. Broumand and team for such an incredible life change!
