Breast Reduction Surgery

Clinically referred to as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction surgery is a reconstructive procedure that is employed to improve breast size and shape. By removing excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin, breast reduction surgery helps to alleviate problems commonly associated with overly large breasts, including:

  • Back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Restricted physical activity
  • Skin irritation beneath the breast crease
  • Sagging, stretched skin and a low breast profile
  • An enlarged areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple) caused by stretched skin

Lori came to Dr. Stephen Hardy though the recommendation from a friend. Before her breast reduction surgery, Lori was afraid to stand straight due to the lack confidence in her overly large breasts. Lori claims that having the breast reduction surgery done was one of the best decisions she has ever made. She is now much more confident in her body and enjoys do things such as exercise, which is something she couldn’t do before without being embarrassed about her look.

Candidates for Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction surgery can be performed on one breast (unilaterally) or on both breasts (bilaterally) of women whose breasts have fully developed. Good candidates for breast reduction surgery are healthy women who:

  • Do not have medical conditions that could impair healing
  • Are nonsmokers in good general health
  • Have a positive outlook and realistic expectations
  • Have specific goals in mind for improving body image

A consultation with Dr. Hardy is the first step in evaluating whether breast reduction is the right procedure for you. At our Missoula, Montana practice, we have had the pleasure of helping numerous women achieve better posture, reduce strain on their back, neck, and shoulders, and improve their self-confidence. If you are interested in breast reduction surgery, we can help.
