Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

Do you have chronic pain in your back, shoulders, neck and even your breasts? Is it uncomfortable to sit or stand? Is your physical activity restricted due to the size of your breasts? Do your shoulders hurt where your bra straps have put pressure? You might even experience some other symptoms such as frequent muscle tension headaches, tingling and numbness sensations in your fingers. If you answered yes to these questions, you might benefit from breast reduction surgery.

Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammaplasty, reduces the size of breasts that are disproportionate to your body and cause physical pain. By accomplishing this, the pain in your neck, back, and shoulders is reduced and often eliminated. In addition to the therapeutic benefit of breast reduction, there is the cosmetic benefit of a more pleasing and youthful appearance of the breast.

Procedure Information

  1. What are my first steps?
    A consultation with one of the physicians at the Plastic Surgery Center is your essential first step to learn how breast reduction can help you. If you're ready to discuss your breast reduction in more detail, call us at 316.688.7500 or request your consultation online today.
  2. Where will my surgery be performed?
    Your surgery may be performed in our accredited ambulatory surgical suite or a hospital. The method of anesthesia will be based on the requirements of your specific procedure and considerations of your preference as well as your surgeon's. At the Plastic Surgery Center, your safety and comfort are very important. Your surgeon will also give you certain pre operative care instructions. While we have included some on our website, they are not a substitute for your physician's instructions.
  3. Breast Reduction Recovery Time and Expectations
    Your initial healing will include swelling and discomfort that can be controlled by medication. You may be ready to return to work and normal activity after about 10 days. Your healing will continue for several weeks. Your physician will provide you with more specific post op and scar care instructions. We have included some basic instructions on our website for pre op, post op and scar care, but they are not a substitute for your physician's specific guidelines.
  4. After Breast Reduction
    Your final results will appear over the next few months as your breast shape and position continue to settle. Your new breast size should give you freedom from the pain and physical limitations you experienced before your surgery.
