Breast Reduction

If you have overly large breasts, you may suffer from back problems, neck pain, bra straps digging into your shoulders, and other physical discomforts. In addition to these challenges, having very large breasts can impact your confidence and emotional wellbeing. A breast reduction with board-certified Salt Lake City plastic surgeon Dr. Brian C. Reuben can help improve the way you look and feel by removing excess skin and breast tissue for smaller, lighter, uplifted breasts.

Breast Reduction Candidates

Generally, our breast reduction patients are looking for relief from:

  • Heavy, sagging breasts
  • Limitations on their physical activity
  • Back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Asymmetry
  • Physical and emotional discomfort

Dr. Reuben understands the emotional impact that having excessively large breasts can have on a woman. He wants you to feel comfortable in your own skin, and can help you achieve a breast size that is proportional to the rest of your body. During your personal consultation, he will walk you through the procedure and inform you of what you need to know to make the best decision for you.

Before the procedure, Dr. Reuben will discuss the various aspects of breast reduction surgery. Once you determine an appropriate breast size, Dr. Reuben can perform the surgery.

To begin, an incision will be created. Depending on how much reduction is required, different incisions may be used. More extensive lifting will typically require an incision that circles the areolas and continues down the breast. This allows Dr. Reuben to remove excess skin and breast tissue, as well as tighten the breast to a firm and lifted position. The incision method Dr. Reuben uses will depend on the size of your breasts and your end goal. Usually the procedure lasts about 2-3 hours.

Once Dr. Reuben is finished with your breast reduction, he will close the incisions, drains will be placed for a short period of time, and you will begin your recovery.

I want my patients to have great self-esteem and a body image that they can be proud of.

What to Expect After Your Breast Reduction

While experiences vary, women typically need about a week to recover from a breast reduction. After surgery, you will be given a surgical bra to wear to help your breasts maintain their new shape. Most women can resume exercise about 4 weeks after their procedure.
