Relieve the burden of large, heavy breasts.

Excessively large, heavy breasts can cause a variety of medical and cosmetic problems. They can affect posture, leading to chronic neck, upper back and shoulder pain. Tight bra straps that dig into the shoulders may cause discomfort, while persistent moisture in the creases under the breasts can lead to skin rashes and irritation. Running, jogging and other active sports may be difficult or uncomfortable, and finding clothes that fit well is often a chore.

A breast reduction procedure, more formally known as reduction mammaplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed by Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons to remove sagging, heavy breast tissue, and reshape and reposition the breast for a more youthful, lifted appearance. Our surgeons use several techniques in breast reduction, depending on each woman’s individual needs. One commonly used technique is a minimal-scar breast reduction/lift, also known as a vertical mammaplasty. This procedure combines a breast reduction with a breast lift to create higher, firmer, younger-looking breasts that are less likely to sag over time. Liposuction is also commonly used to help reshape the breasts by removing excess fat in the breasts, under the arms and around the bottom breast crease.

A breast reduction is very effective at eliminating the discomfort and medical issues associated with large breasts. Many women also find they have increased confidence, their clothes fit better and they’re able to participate in physical activity without embarrassment or discomfort.

Opting for breast reduction is a highly personal decision and may be recommended for a woman with very large, heavy, pendulous breasts that affect her quality of life. The best way to know if a breast reduction is right for you is to sit down with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons specialist for a personal consultation. Together, you will discuss your condition, your desired results, the details of the procedure and post-procedure expectations, financial options, and any concerns or questions you may have. Your Crystal Clinic doctor will also take time with you to review your medical history. 

The first step is to schedule an appointment. Please be assured that scheduling an initial consultation with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons expert will not obligate you to move forward with any procedure.
