Breast Reduction

A breast reduction can eliminate back pain, shoulder pain and even make you look leaner. Furthermore, trends these days have shifted towards smaller but still proportional breasts.  This makes us happy as it’s always been our aesthetic. While some women just have a genetic abundance of breast tissue, for others, it can result from pregnancy, weight gain, surgical augmentation or menopause. Regardless of the reason, overly large breasts can be physically painful. They may also make you feel dumpy, self-conscious and even keep you from wearing the clothes that you want. A breast reduction is a surgical procedure to reduce breast volume and lift the breasts to a perkier position on your chest wall. Patients who undergo a breast reduction are some of the most satisfied of all plastic surgery patients because this is a procedure that can literally change your everyday life.

V-Form Breast Reduction Consultation

Thanks to the internet, patients today are highly educated when it comes to plastic surgery. But before considering any kind of breast surgery, it is important for you to schedule a consultation to actually be assessed in-person. Dr. Nazarian sees her breast reduction patients at her Beverly Hills office. However, if you live out of town, she can perform an initial virtual assessment. During your breast reduction consultation, Dr. Nazarian will listen attentively to what bothers you about your breasts. She will then perform a thorough physical examination to assess your breasts: 
  • skin tone
  • skin laxity
  • amount of excess tissue
  • nipple position
  • breast tissue position
  • asymmetry
Then, together, you will come up with the treatment plan that best addresses your individual needs and anatomy. Dr. Nazarian will perform a breast reduction on its own, but she will often combine it with another body contouring procedure such as a tummy tuck, liposuction or as part of a Mommy Makeover.

What Makes a V-Form Breast Reduction Special?

Dr. Nazarian performs a combination of procedures during a breast reduction in order to elevate your final result. Our v-form breast reduction isn’t just about removing breast tissue and closing up the skin. It’s about sculpting your breast into its ideal shape and size. Dr. Nazarian often combines breast reduction surgery with fat transfer to the top portion of the breast in order to produce that pleasing, plump cleavage that most of us desire. And though it may sound strange, she may also combine a breast reduction with a small breast implant in order to improve the shape of the breast, and bring more volume to the top portion.  Skin tightening procedures like BodyTite and Morepheus8 may also be used to improve your skin quality. Bottom line, breast reductions today are not the same as they were 20 years ago. New techniques and technologies have made them better, and you want a plastic surgeon who is innovative and up-to-date in order to get the best results.

Are You a Candidate for a V-Form Breast Reduction?

You may be an ideal candidate for a breast reduction if you are:
  • at all self-conscious about the size and shape of your breasts
  • don’t wear certain clothes due to the size of your breasts
  • left with shoulder grooves at the end of the day
  • in pain, particularly in the lower back, shoulders and neck
  • in overall good health
Overly big breasts can be genetic. But they can also result from:
  • hormones
  • pregnancy
  • weight gain
  • age
Many breast reduction patients developed large breasts early in life. This often produced some unwanted attention. A breast reduction is so life changing because it works on two fronts: physically and emotionally. Patients describe waking up from surgery with smaller breasts as almost a rebirth. It’s truly that powerful.

V-Form Breast Reduction Procedure

Dr. Nazarian performs a number of different breast reduction techniques. The right one for you is going to depend on your anatomy and goals, including how much volume needs to be removed as well as how much lift is required to create breasts that are in synch with the rest of your torso. These techniques include the: 
  • anchor shaped incision
  • lollipop incision
  • donut mastopexy
  • areola lift with breast liposuction
  • BodyTite
  • breast reduction combined with fat transfer
  • a breast reduction with a breast implant
Most are performed as an out-patient procedure under general anesthesia in an accredited surgery center. When appropriate, BodyTite and areola lifts may be performed with the patient awake under local anesthesia.

Frequently
Asked Questions

Will I lose nipple sensation after a breast reduction?

I have a very good track record with this issue. Most patients notice no difference in sensation. Is decreased or loss of sensation a possibility? Yes. It depends on the individual as well as how much volume and skin are removed.

Can I breastfeed after a breast reduction?

Many patients find that they can breastfeed after a breast reduction. But there is no guarantee. So, if this is something that is really important to you, my best advice would be to wait and not have surgery until you are finished having children.

What’s the difference between a breast lift and a breast reduction?

A breast reduction is really a breast lift that also removes excess breast volume. Some patients, particularly those whose breasts have dropped post children, don’t actually have an excess in breast volume. Their breast skin has simply stretched. So, lifting the breasts and removing the excess skin is enough. But for patients who have too much tissue, the skin envelope must be reduced and the extra tissue removed.  I am terrified that a scar on the breast will make me undesirable. Do you find this to be true? Not at all. What most people find desirable is confidence. Restoring your body to its proper proportion by reducing the size of your breasts is going to make you feel better about yourself. And in my experience, this self-confidence translates into every aspect of my breast reduction patient’s lives.
