If your breasts are overly large, they may cause you to feel self conscious or suffer from constant physical irritation — issues that breast reduction can treat. The goal of the surgery is to lessen the size of the breasts by carefully removing excess tissues for smaller and more shapely breasts. Primary plastic surgeon at Briarwood Cosmetic Surgical Center, Dr. Stephen Brown has extensive experience in performing breast reductions for women who have overly large breasts as a result of genetics, pregnancy/childbirth or the aging process. He takes special care to minimize scarring, one of the most common concerns of the procedure.

You'll probably see an improvement right after your surgery. One of the best features of the breast reduction procedure is just how quickly your results become evident. Almost immediately after recovering from the surgery, you will begin to feel much better, the weight that previously caused physical discomfort having been eliminated. The changes to your figure become obvious right away as well. Once the procedure is complete your profile will become much slimmer as the result of the breasts being brought into proportion with the rest of your figure. In addition, your posture will improve and the pain affecting your chest, neck, back, and shoulders will be reduced almost immediately. For our patients, no other form of cosmetic surgery makes such an immediate difference to how you look and feel, with results that are also long-lasting.
Our patients have a number of reasons to undergo breast reduction, and the most pressing ones are usually physical. If your breasts are very large, you're probably familiar with the constant, nagging discomfort that comes in the form of back, shoulder, and neck pain. You may also suffer from other forms of irritation, such as bra straps that dig into your shoulders and hurt the skin or rashes that form along the creases of the breasts. The stress that comes from being unable to find clothes that fit you properly is also a concern that the surgery can eliminate. Breast reduction may also improve the appearance of your breasts and overall body contour because it doesn't just make the breasts smaller, but also reshapes them at the same time.
The body does change over time, though, and the effects of age and gravity will change the appearance of your breasts over the years. Becoming pregnant or gaining/losing a large amount of weight will also have an effect on your appearance. Many women choose to undergo a breast lift in the future in order to compensate for these changes and maintain the fantastic results created by their initial breast reduction.
