Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast Reduction

Women with large breasts often suffer from back pain, tender grooves in the skin over their shoulders from their bra straps and even rashes under their breasts. These symptoms may be significant enough to limit them in certain activities. Breast reduction surgery may improve or even completely alleviate these symptoms. Breast reduction surgery involves decreasing the size of the breasts and if necessary the areolas (pigmented area around the nipple) with incisions placed around areola and down the lower part of the breast. Because larger breast often sag or droop somewhat, the procedure not only decreases the size of the breast but lifts the breasts as well.

If you are considering breast reduction surgery, please call today to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Sanderson.
