Improved Self-Image, Lasting Results

There are many reasons to seek out a change. Whatever yours may be, we’re here to honor them and help you take the next step in your journey. Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that reduces breast tissue and removes excess skin to obtain a breast size more proportional to the rest of your body. This procedure can also reduce discomfort, such as back or neck pain associated with large and heavy breasts, and improve body image and confidence by giving patients proportionally sized breasts that are firmer, perkier, and more youthful-looking.

Some of the benefits of breast reduction in Chicago include:

  • Reduce the size and weight of your breasts
  • Breasts that are proportional to your body size
  • Firmer, more lifted breast
  • Improved symmetry
  • Youthful contours
  • Reduce the size of large or “stretched out” areolas (nipples)
  • Fit better into bras, swimsuits, and other clothing
  • Participate better in physical activities
  • Alleviate physical discomfort caused by large breasts

The Day of Your Procedure

Your breast reduction in Chicago will take place in an outpatient surgical center. Once you are prepped for surgery, you will be placed under general anesthesia. To begin, we will make an incision on your breasts. The type of incision will depend on the specifics of your situation and aesthetic goals. After making the incision, we will reposition and possibly reduce the areola. Then, we remove excess breast tissue and fat and also trim away excess skin. Following that, we will lift, reshape, and reposition the tissue, using sutures deep within the tissue to support the new size and position of your breasts. We will then close the incisions and bandage them in supportive dressings.

Recovery and Results

Typically, patients experience discomfort, bruising, and swelling for one to two weeks following surgery. After the procedure, your breast will be bandaged, and you will be advised to wear a support bra for a specific amount of time. You will also be encouraged to limit physical activity to allow your breasts to heal.

Your new breast shape and size should be immediately apparent. Best of all, reduction mammaplasty results are long-lasting. Breast reduction scars will fade with time, but they will never fully disappear. We will use precise placement to ensure the scars are covered when wearing a bra or swimsuit.

A Procedure with a High Satisfaction Rate

In a questionnaire sent out to over 300 reduction mammaplasty patients, breast reduction was shown to produce a remarkably high satisfaction rate among patients along with a consistent ability to reduce the cosmetic concerns and physical symptoms of having disproportionately large breasts. According to the survey published in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 97% of women who opted for breast reduction surgery did so because they felt “uncomfortable…about their body.”

95% of those surveyed complained about an “inability to find clothes that fit.” Beyond cosmetic concerns, most women also noted a significant impact on their standard of living.

86% reported an “inability to run,” and 77% reported an “inability to participate in sports” as one of the motivating reasons they underwent reduction mammaplasty. Besides physical restrictions, many reported pain or discomfort arising from the size of their breasts.

92% reported “pain in bra strap groove.” 79% reported “upper back pain.” 70% reported “neck pain.” And 64% reported “lower back pain.” The majority of those surveyed (88 percent) reported a cessation or major reduction of these symptoms following their breast reduction surgery. The survey also demonstrates the exceptionally high satisfaction rate among patients of this procedure. Of those surveyed, 97% “responded that they definitely…would have the procedure again.”
