Schedule A Consultation


Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, aims to decrease the size and reshape breasts that are considered large or disproportionate to the body frame. It addresses both physical and emotional concerns associated with macromastia (excessively large breasts). The procedure removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to achieve a smaller, more comfortable, and proportional breast size. There are different incision patterns used depending on the extent of reduction and desired outcome.


  • Relief from physical discomfort like neck, back, and shoulder pain
  • Improved posture and ability to participate in physical activities
  • Reduction in skin irritation under the breasts
  • Enhanced self-confidence and body image


  • Surgical procedure with potential risks like infection, bleeding, and scarring.
  • Requires significant downtime for recovery.
  • Changes nipple sensation (may be temporary or permanent).
  • Reduced ability to breastfeed (may be complete or partial).


  • Liposuction: May be suitable for removing excess fat deposits without major tissue reduction.
  • Exercise and supportive bras: Can help improve posture and manage discomfort, but won’t significantly reduce size.

Recovery Time

  • Initial healing takes 2-4 weeks, with limitations on activity and lifting.
  • Swelling and bruising may subside over several months.
  • Full recovery with unrestricted movement can take up to 3-6 months.
