Overly large breasts can have painful consequences, leading to a lifetime of back and neck pain, deep grooves in your shoulders from bra straps, or irritation, rashes, or infections. A breast reduction in Beverly Hills from Dr. Brian Shafa can give your breasts a balanced appearance, alleviate pain, and dramatically improve your quality of life and confidence. 

What is breast reduction? 

Overly large breasts often cause women to feel like they’re missing out on life, as they are not comfortable participating in sports, exercise classes, or even wearing certain types of clothing. Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to reduce the size of the breasts to create a more proportional aesthetic.

While some women may only be interested in reducing the size of the breasts, breast reduction may also change the shape, projection, of the breasts, the placement of the areolas. This custom procedure will reshape the breast tissues to a rounded, pert, natural look, creating a harmonious balance to your figure. 

What are the benefits of breast reduction? 

Many women who seek breast reduction in Beverly Hills feel self-conscious about the size of their breasts. Breast reduction can be life-changing for women with an excess of breast tissue, and provides the many personal and aesthetic benefits: 

  • Reduced breast size
  • Balanced figure
  • Improved posture
  • Reduced back and neck pain
  • The ability to wear standard clothing sizes
  • Restored confidence in your body image

How is breast reduction performed? 

Each breast reduction procedure performed by Dr. Shafa in Beverly Hills is tailored to the individual. Reduction mammoplasty is performed while you are under general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Shafa will remove excess breast tissue, reshaping your breasts and areolas, if necessary, creating breasts with a perkier, more desirable shape and size. A compression garment will be applied once your procedure is complete to reduce swelling and encourage the tissues to settle into the newly-enhanced shape. Breast reduction surgery typically requires about three hours to perform. 

What is recovery from a breast reduction like? 

Breast reduction surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, allowing you to recover in the comfort of your own home. You can expect some discomfort in the days following your procedure, which can be managed with pain medication prescribed by Dr. Shafa. You will be asked to wear a compression garment following your surgery, followed by a sports bra with additional support and allow your breasts to heal properly. You should plan to take approximately one week off work or other obligations. Your activities will be restricted for about six weeks, with no vigorous exercise or activities until your incisions have healed.

Am I a candidate for breast reduction surgery?

Women with enlarged breasts who are in overall good mental and physical health may be excellent candidates for breast reduction surgery. Dr. Shafa understands the physical and emotional pain that can come with disproportionately large breasts.

A custom breast reduction will provide you with a balanced figure, and help you live life to the fullest. 

Any patient considering surgery should be free from major illnesses, as health concerns like hypertension or bleeding disorders may interfere with your treatment or its recovery. Clients should be non-smokers, or they should be willing to abstain at least 2 or 3 weeks before and after their procedure. Lastly, patients should be realistic in their expectations for their breast reduction results, based on their private consultation with Dr. Shafa in Beverly Hills.

FAQ

Will I have scarring after my breast reduction?

Breast reduction scars can be well hidden within the darker colors of the areola and within the inframammary creases. Scarring will slowly fade over time. Reviewing Dr. Shafa’s before and after photographs is an excellent way to get familiar with his techniques and results. After surgery, the doctor can provide you with non-surgical options for improving the appearance of scars, including state-of-the-art medical grade skincare products.

What other procedures are well combined with a breast reduction?

Breast lift surgery is often paired with a breast lift to achieve more comprehensive results in the chest appearance. While breast reduction surgery can address the oversized quality of the breasts and their elongated shape, it cannot lift or elevate the breast mounds, so here a breast lift can step in to bridge this gap in aesthetics.

What should I look for in a breast reduction surgeon?

One of the early steps in selecting the right surgery for you is to read patient testimonials and review the surgeon’s before and after photographs. This will acquaint you with the doctor’s abilities as well as their personality. Secondly, you should thoroughly investigate the surgeon’s credentials. Do they have experience performing breast surgery? Or has their career been more focused on facial procedures?

Lastly it’s important to meet with your breast reduction surgeon in person and find out if working together is a good fit. You can ask questions about the risks and benefits of your surgery; your recovery; and what you can expect from your final results. In this way, reputation, training, expertise and personality all combine to help you choose the perfect surgeon for your unique goals, concerns and aesthetic sensibilities.
