Breast Reduction

Breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces the size and weight of overly large breasts to alleviate physical discomfort and improve quality of life. Excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are removed during the procedure, and the breasts are reshaped and lifted to achieve a more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Breast reduction can also alleviate symptoms such as back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as bra strap grooving and skin irritation beneath the breasts.

If you're grappling with the physical and emotional toll of oversized breasts, breast reduction surgery could provide significant relief. Our plastic surgeon in Denver, CO, provides personalized consultations to assess your unique situation and discuss how breast reduction can enhance your quality of life. By addressing symptoms like back pain, shoulder grooving, and skin irritation, this procedure aims to alleviate discomfort and restore confidence.

Breast reduction surgery may be recommended for you if you are experiencing negative effects associated with oversized breasts. Dr. Aycock will help you understand how breast reduction could improve your day-to-day living and support you in making an informed choice about this procedure.

Reduce Chronic Pain

Breast reduction surgery in Denver alleviates chronic pain associated with oversized breasts by removing excess breast tissue and redistributing the weight to achieve a more proportionate size. Reducing strain on the back, neck, and shoulders relieves tension and discomfort, improving mobility and overall comfort. Additionally, it helps correct posture and diminishes the occurrence of bra strap grooving and skin irritation beneath the breasts. With personalized care and expertise, breast reduction surgery not only enhances physical well-being but also fosters a renewed sense of confidence and vitality in daily life.


Eliminate Irritation

Breast reduction surgery effectively eliminates irritation caused by oversized breasts. Removing excess breast tissue and reshaping the breasts to a more proportionate size minimizes skin-to-skin contact and friction beneath the breasts. As a result, common irritations such as rashes, chafing, and discomfort associated with moisture accumulation are significantly reduced or eliminated. With personalized care and meticulous attention to detail, breast reduction surgery not only enhances physical comfort but also promotes healthier skin and improved overall well-being for individuals experiencing irritation due to oversized breasts.

Improve Mobility

The breast reduction procedure enhances mobility by reducing the physical burden of oversized breasts. Excess breast tissue and weight are removed, alleviating strain on the neck, shoulders, and upper back. With lighter, more proportionate breasts, individuals experience improved posture and freedom of movement, allowing for greater ease in activities like exercise, bending, and reaching. This enhanced mobility contributes to physical well-being and fosters a more active and fulfilling lifestyle, empowering individuals to engage in daily tasks and recreational activities with increased comfort and confidence.

Additional Benefits

Beyond the relief from physical discomfort, breast reduction surgery yields many additional benefits that significantly enhance overall well-being. One notable advantage is the profound improvement in body image and self-esteem. Patients often experience newfound confidence and empowerment as they achieve a more balanced and proportionate breast size, aligning with their desired aesthetic. Moreover, breast reduction opens doors to a broader array of clothing options, enabling individuals to comfortably embrace diverse styles without feeling constrained by their breast size.

Additionally, the procedure can lead to better posture and spinal alignment, reducing strain on the neck, shoulders, and back. This improvement in physical comfort translates into heightened psychological well-being, fostering feelings of liberation and improved mental health. Furthermore, breast reduction surgery can enhance social interactions and intimacy, alleviating self-consciousness and allowing individuals to engage more freely in social settings.

Frequently Asked Questions

Good candidates for breast reduction surgery are individuals who experience physical discomfort, emotional distress, or limitations in daily activities due to the size and weight of their breasts. Candidates should have good overall health and realistic expectations about the procedure's outcome.

During breast reduction surgery, incisions are made around the areola, down the breast, and possibly along the breast crease, depending on the extent of correction needed. Excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are removed, and the breasts are reshaped and lifted to achieve a more youthful and proportionate appearance.

The results of breast reduction surgery are immediately visible, although final results may take several weeks to fully manifest as swelling subsides and the breasts settle into their new shape. Most patients experience relief from physical symptoms and enjoy improved self-confidence and quality of life.

Like any surgical procedure, breast reduction surgery carries potential risks and complications, including infection, bleeding, changes in nipple sensation, and scarring. However, these risks are relatively rare, and choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon experienced in breast reduction procedures can minimize the likelihood of complications.

The cost of breast reduction surgery can vary depending on factors such as geographic location, surgeon's experience, facility fees, anesthesia fees, and any additional procedures performed concurrently with the breast reduction. During your consultation, your surgeon will provide a detailed breakdown of the costs associated with your procedure and discuss financing options available to you.
