Why consider breast reduction?
For our Los Angeles breast reduction patients, surgery is not only important for looking great and feeling confident, it’s also essential for alleviating pain and discomfort. This procedure reduces the size of the breasts so that they are in better proportion with the rest of your body. After surgery, your breasts will instantly feel lighter and many of the physical burdens you previously experienced will be immediately improved. When combined with a simultaneous breast lift, breast reduction surgery also reduces sagging and improves the position of the breasts and nipples.
How it works
You will meet with one of our plastic surgeons for a complete evaluation in order to determine if breast reduction surgery can give you the results you are looking for. In some cases, your insurance may cover the cost of surgery, which our doctors will discuss with you in detail.
During your consultation, we will use the VECTRA® 3-D imaging system to get a clear understanding of the results that can be achieved. This advanced computer imaging technology uses your own photos and measurements to create life-like images of your expected surgical outcome. VECTRA can also show you how additional procedures would improve your results, including
During surgery, your surgeon will remove excess fat, breast tissue, and skin from the breasts. This can be accomplished with manual dissection techniques or laser surgery. For the appropriate patient, our surgeons may use the Stevens Laser Bra to support and lift the breasts for long-lasting results.
Is a follow-up required?
Our surgeons will want to track your progress in order to make sure you are healing correctly. You will be asked to visit the office for several weeks after your surgery so that our surgeons can evaluate your breasts and answer any questions you may have. Recovery typically takes about 1 to 2 weeks but will depend on the extent of your surgery and whether or not additional procedures were involved.
