About Breast Reduction
Heavy, disproportionately large breasts can often lead to physical discomfort and pain. Women with larger breasts often experience issues such as back, neck and shoulder pain, trouble performing ordinary chores, and difficulty exercising. Emotional discomfort and problems with self-esteem is another psychological fallout of enlarged breasts.
Many women considering breast reduction find that their clothes and bras don’t fit properly over their breasts. Breasts that are too large and out of proportion with the rest of the body can make it difficult to find properly fitting clothing and also cause added stress to the neck, shoulders and back.
The Breast Reduction Advantage
Also known as Reduction Mammoplasty, breast reduction surgery removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts. As such, breasts will be smaller, lighter and firmer; areola may be reduced in size. The goal is to provide breasts in proportion with the rest of the patients’ body. Breast reduction surgery has been known to provide women with life-changing results, both physically and emotionally.
Breast Reduction Procedure
There has been considerable evolution in breast reduction theory and technique over recent years. The top breast reduction techniques that are available are as follows:
- Circumareolar Breast Reduction- A reduction mammoplasty performed with a "doughnut" incision made around the areola only.
- Circumvertical Breast Reduction- A "Lollipop" reduction mammoplasty, or short scar breast reduction, with an incision around areola and a vertical line.
- Wise-Pattern Reduction - The more classical "Inverted-T" breast reduction, with an incision around the areola, a vertical line to the inframammary crease, and a horizontal line.
- Suction-Assisted Breast Reduction - A breast reduction performed with liposuction, solely, or in conjunction with the above.
Factors determining the technique used:
There are numerous factors that must be considered in the selection of the best breast reduction technique, which include:
- The size of the breasts
- The degree of droop or sag (ptosis)
- Breast shape
- Breast Symmetry
- The projection and size of the nipple - areolar region
- The elasticity of the breast skin
- Physique and body proportion
- Individual preferences, desires and goals
By blending the specific physical requirements and individual desires, the best reduction mammoplasty methods can be selected. The specific techniques and incision patterns are ultimately formulated on the anticipated final balance between the breast "foundation", consisting of breast gland and soft tissue, and the elastic properties and size of the "skin bra". Only with a perfect understanding of the relation between these two, can the most beautiful and natural breast shape be achieved, and the top breast reduction results be obtained.
Breast reduction surgery takes from 1-2 hours, depending on the amount of surgery required.
When your Breast Reduction procedure is complete, dressings will be applied to the incisions. A support bra may be worn to minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal.
A small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect.
After a thorough evaluation and discussion with Dr. Milan Doshi at Allure MedSpa, Breast Reduction options using the most modern and individually tailored techniques will be discussed. In every case, Dr. Doshi will recommend and select the least invasive, most nominal incision approach to achieve the most beautiful results. Our Breast Reduction patients will often come to us following their surgery, excited about the dramatic changes in their lifestyles thanks to their procedure.

Breast Reduction FAQs
- Is the breast reduction surgery painful?
Breast reduction surgery is not that painful. The pain and discomfort is managed by the pain medication prescribed, but most patients use over the counter pain medication after the first several days. Cold compresses help with the swelling and discomfort, and sleeping in an upright position with pillows for the first week or so will help with the pain.
- Can I breastfeed post a Breast reduction surgery?
Studies have compared different types of breast reduction surgery and found that there was no difference in the outcome, nor was ability to breast feed different from other women with large breasts who did not have a breast reduction surgery.
- What happens after surgery to reduce the size of my breasts?
You will need to wear a support bra for up to six weeks, until the swelling and bruising subsides. You should avoid any straining, bending and lifting for at least four weeks following surgery. The incisions from the procedure should fade over time. Fortunately, the incisions are in locations easily concealed by clothing, even low-cut necklines.
- When can I resume my normal activities?
Recovery time varies from patient to patient. Depending on the extent of your breast reduction and your general physical condition, you may be able to return to non-strenuous work anywhere from one to three weeks after surgery. Indeed, many women are able to resume most of their normal activities, including some form of mild exercise, after just four weeks.
- Am I suitable for a breast reduction surgery?
In evaluating your suitability for breast reduction surgery, your surgeon will assess the size and shape of your breasts, the quality of your skin and the placement of your nipples. These factors, as well as the desired amount of reduction, are factors that will help your surgeon decide on the best technique for you.
- How is breast reduction surgery performed?
Breast reduction surgery requires a general anesthetic to keep you asleep throughout the procedure. You should be prepared to spend one night in hospital.
- Are there any risks in Breast reduction surgery?
Fortunately, significant complications from this procedure are infrequent. Every year, many women undergo successful breast reduction surgery, experience no major problems and are delighted with the results. Anyone considering surgery, however, should be aware of both the benefits and the risks. Your surgeon will discuss these with you during your consultation.
- What results can I expect?
Breast reduction surgery is to make your breasts smaller and firmer. Without the excessive weight of large breasts, you are likely to find greater enjoyment than before in playing sports and engaging in other physical activity.
It may take you some time to adjust to your new body image. However, most women soon feel more comfortable in their clothing and develop more confidence about their appearance.
- Can I expect aftercare?
