Breast Reduction Basics

Women with overly large breasts may experience physical problems such as back, shoulder, and neck pain in addition to feeling self-conscious about participating in athletic activities. Understanding the techniques and benefits of a breast reduction can help you decide if it’s right for you.

When I perform breast reduction surgery, I typically make an incision that resembles an anchor shape: it is made around the nipple areola, vertically down the center of the breast, and along the breast fold. I then remove excess fat, tissue, and skin before lifting the breast into a more youthful position. I also reduce and elevate the areola.

In addition to reducing the size of their breasts, many women add liposuction to their breast reduction procedure. By combining breast reduction with liposuction in Omaha I can help to contour certain areas of the body and remove excess fatty tissue. Some of the most popular areas to treat include the hips, thighs, back, and abdomen.

The benefits of breast reduction may include significant reductions in back and neck pain, increased athletic involvement, and more freedom in clothing choices. After their procedure, my patients often tell me that they love the way they look – and how much more self-confident they feel. Selecting a board-certified plastic surgeon who will customize this procedure to match your specific goals is a great way to achieving the appearance that you desire.
