Breast reduction in SacramentoMany women choose breast procedures to feel more appealing, confident, and comfortable with a newly enhanced profile. Despite a common perception, that doesn’t always mean the goal is a larger size. For patients with small frames, breast reduction can be a welcome solution to neck and back pain, poor posture and even social awkwardness.

The experienced Sacramento plastic surgeons of The Plastic Surgery Center are skilled in reshaping the size and proportion of breasts to dramatically improve your quality of life and end soreness, inflammation and pain.

Choosing Breast Reduction

Heavy breasts can limit a woman’s freedom, making some physical activities impractical or uncomfortable. Bra straps may chafe against the skin and put a strain on shoulders, potentially impacting circulation. The added weight of a larger breast size pulls the shoulders forward, often leading to chronic back pain and a slouch when walking or standing.

A woman with a small frame and large breast size may find it hard to find clothes that fit. She may also find it difficult to jog and participate in sports. A disproportionate profile may also attract unwanted attention and lead to discomfort or embarrassment in social situations. A slimmer, fit profile can build confidence and boost self-esteem.

When performed by the trusted surgeons of The Plastic Surgery Center, breast reduction surgery can add symmetry to breasts and sculpt a more appealing shape. It can also adjust the nipple, compress the size of the areola, and generally create an elegant, perkier profile. If there is sagging, your surgeon can also lift each breast to renew the natural contour.

Permanent Proportions

The experienced surgeons of The Plastic Surgery Center perform breast reduction as an outpatient procedure, using general anesthesia or “twilight” IV sedation. The entire process will normally take approximately two hours. With an eye for beauty and balance, your surgeon will work to achieve your vision, and create a graceful, well-proportioned look.

One of the benefits of breast reduction surgery is that follow-up procedures are usually not necessary. In the absence of future pregnancies or dramatic weight gain, the results of your breast reduction will be long-lasting. Except in rare cases, breast tissue will not grow back, so your new slim profile should be permanent.
