Breast reduction has been one of the most popular plastic surgeries performed over decades with one of the highest patient satisfaction. Patients seeking this procedure are those with large breasts who suffer from neck or back pain whose breast size and weight has limited their physical activity or simple their self-image. There are different methods of performing this surgery and each method leaves a different shape of scar. During your consultation Dr. Hakimi will decide which method will be appropriate based on your size, desired size, skin and soft tissue quality and other factors.
Even though breast reduction brings the nipple up in an aesthetically proportionate position, its main purpose is to reduce breast weight and volume. Patients that simply desire improving droopy breasts are better candidates for breast life (mastopexy.) As in any body contouring procedures, Dr. Hakimi will make sure that patient’s weight has been stable and there is plan for maintenance around the same weight. Any weight gain or loss could alter and lessen the aesthetic outcome.
