Breast Reduction

Breast size is a very personal decision, and only you can decide what’s right for you. Our breast reduction patients come to us for very different reasons. Some say their overly large breasts make it difficult to exercise, or sleep comfortably. Others complain of back pain, or difficulty finding flattering clothes that fit. Some women have wanted smaller breasts since they were teenagers, while others became unhappy with their breasts after childbirth or aging. And some may be seeking to correct asymmetry (different size breasts) which has always been present. Regardless of your situation, it may be time to consider breast reduction.

In your initial consultation, Dr. Pope will listen to your concerns and gain a complete understanding of your goals. He will explain in detail his surgical approach, and prepare you for the recovery period.

The most common incision with breast reduction is around the areola, straight down the lower part of the breast to the crease, and then another incision along the direction of the fold. The breasts will be resized and positioned, and excess fat and skin will be removed. Dr. Pope takes care to maintain blood supply to the nipple and areola to avoid the risk of discoloration and loss of sensation. Nipple sensation will gradually return.
