Women with large, pendulous, and heavy breasts often suffer from a variety of medical and emotional issues. Back pain, neck pain, and poor posture may be related to overly large breasts. Breast reduction surgery can give you the opportunity to eliminate some medical problems as well as regain confidence and self-esteem by creating a more proportionate body contour.
Breast reduction surgery (also referred to as reduction mammaplasty) involves removing fat and glandular tissue to create smaller and firmer breasts. There are different techniques that can be performed, and each case is individually tailored by Dr. Leppard.
Most patients will experience soreness, swelling and bruising for several days following surgery. Postoperative swelling and pain will diminish over the first few weeks. We recommend patients take two to three weeks off from work to rest and recover.
