Breast Reduction Q & A

What is a breast reduction?

Breast reduction, also known as mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can help your breasts look more proportionate to your body and reduce certain types of pain.

Large breasts are more than a cosmetic concern for many women. They can strain your neck, shoulders, and back, causing chronic pain. Large breasts may also make activities like running and playing sports uncomfortable.

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ayewah may recommend breast reduction to relieve discomfort and help you achieve a silhouette that aligns better with your aesthetic goals.

Who is a suitable candidate for breast reduction?

Breast reduction is a deeply personal surgical procedure. Physical discomfort and cosmetic preferences are both perfectly valid reasons for considering breast reduction. You may be an ideal candidate if you:

  • Experience back, neck, or shoulder pain from large breasts
  • Struggle to participate in physical activity due to breast size
  • Experience irritation from tight bra straps
  • Do not smoke or vape
  • Are in good health
  • Feel that your breasts are not proportionate to your body

Breast reduction surgery can be life-changing if having large breasts interferes with your daily life, restricts your clothing choices, or causes chronic pain.

How should I prepare for breast reduction?

Once you decide to move forward with breast reduction surgery, Dr. Ayewah can guide you through the preparation process. Presurgery instructions may include the following:

  • Quit smoking and using tobacco products
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory pain medications that cause blood thinning
  • Purchase surgical bras, gauze and wraps, and postsurgery supplies
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing
  • Coordinate care with friends or family

Dr. Ayewah provides personalized guidance before your procedure to ensure you’re prepared physically and emotionally for your upcoming breast reduction surgery.

Can I combine breast reduction with other procedures?

Dr. Ayewah can combine breast reduction surgery with many other cosmetic procedures. Many women undergoing this procedure combine it with a breast lift. This treatment involves lifting the breasts, removing excess skin, and repositioning the remaining tissue for a more lifted and youthful appearance. 

Breast reduction surgery can also complement a mommy makeover, which often includes a tummy tuck, liposuction, and other procedures.
