Patients who undergo breast reduction surgery frequently are seeking relief from physical symptoms caused by the excessive weight of large breasts. Breast reduction usually can solve these problems as well as improve the size and shape of your breasts.

Who is a good candidate for breast reduction?

You may be a good candidate for breast reduction if you have one or more of the following conditions:

What results can I expect?

The level of patient satisfaction resulting from breast reduction is among the highest of any plastic surgery procedure.

What is the procedure?

Individual factors and personal preferences will determine the specific technique selected to reduce the size of your breasts.

The most common method of reducing the breasts involves three incisions. One incision is made around the areola. Another runs vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the crease underneath the breast. The third incision follows the natural curve of the breast crease.

After Dr. Moon has removed excess breast tissue, fat and skin, the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher position. The areola, which in large breasts usually has been stretched, also is reduced in size. Skin that was formerly located above the nipple is brought down and together to reshape the breast. Liposuction may be used to improve the contour under the arm.

One common breast reduction technique that Dr. Moon utilizes removes excess breast tissue, fat and skin through the incisions shown. The nipple and areola remain attached to the underlying tissue, preserving function and sensibility and are then shifted to a higher position. The size of the areola is often reduced at the same time.

Usually, the nipples and areolas remain attached to underlying mounds of tissue, and this allows for the preservation of sensation. The ability to breast-feed may also be preserved by this method, although this cannot be guaranteed.

Are there risks?

Fortunately, significant complications from breast reduction are infrequent. Every year, many thousands of women undergo successful breast reduction surgery, experience no major problems, and are pleased with the results.

You can help to lessen certain risks by following the advice and instructions of Dr. Moon, both before and after surgery.
