Breast Reduction

This patient is a woman in her twenties who wore a 38DD bra. Her large breasts caused symptoms of neck, back, and shoulder pain as well as an intermittent rash underneath the breasts. Her left nipple was higher than the right, and the left breast was slightly smaller than the right.

She underwent breast reduction with the removal of 544 grams on the left and 615 grams on the right, and she reported improvement of her symptoms within just a few days of the operation. She now wears a 38C bra.

As can be seen by the postoperative photos, the breasts have healed in a pleasing shape having been both lifted and reduced. Although the breasts are not perfectly symmetric postoperatively, they are more symmetric than they were before the operation. Since the photos are 3 1/2 months after the operation, the scars are still red; it takes six to twelve months for the scars to fade completely.

Breast Reduction

This patient is a woman in her twenties who wore a 40DD bra. She had suffered from neck, upper back, and shoulder strap pain for ten years. Additionally, she frequently experienced a rash underneath the breasts. Although not well seen in the photo, her left breast was bigger than her right.

She underwent breast reduction with the removal of 570 grams on the left and 504 grams on the right. More was removed from the larger side in an attempt to improve the symmetry.

The photos are 6 weeks after the operation. The color of the scars will fade and any minor irregularities in the scars will improve for another 11 months. She works full time, and since she no longer has the neck, back, and shoulder pain from large breasts, she now feels much better after a full day’s work.

Breast Reduction

This patient is a woman in her thirties who wore a 38DD bra. She complained of pain in the shoulder strap areas and the back. She also said that an underwire bra caused pain underneath the breasts, but that a bra without an underwire was not strong enough to support her breasts. She asked that the breasts be made as small as possible.

She underwent breast reduction with the removal of 877 grams on the left and 705 grams on the right. More was removed from the left breast because it was bigger preoperatively.

After surgery, she wore a 38B and said that her symptoms had completely resolved. The photos are 4 months after surgery. The color of the scars will fade over the next 8 months.
