Women who suffer from the pain of breasts that are too large for their body to comfortably support often experience neck and back pains, shoulder grooves from bra straps and also self-consciousness about the size. This uncomfortable way of living can be stopped with a breast reduction, which aims to reduce the size of the breasts to the patient’s desired size. Dr. Korman has performed several hundreds of breast reductions, giving his patients the chance to live a more comfortable, active life. To schedule your breast reduction consultation, call our Mountain View office.

What is a Breast Reduction?

At your consultation, you and Dr. Korman will decide the size you would like for your breasts following surgery. For some patients, liposuction alone can be effective at reducing the size of breasts. In this case, there is only a very small incision that needs to be made. For most patients, however, an additional incision will be made. The procedure will begin with a vertical incision, from the areola down to the natural crease of the breast with a lollipop incision, around the areola and then down. The incision will be based on the size and shape of your breasts. Dr. Korman will remove excess skin, fat and tissue until the desired size is reached. The areola may need to be repositioned to suit the new breasts, and Dr. Korman commonly lifts the breasts to ensure long-lasting results.

What to Expect Following a Breast Reduction?

Following your procedure, there may be slight swelling or bruising, and Dr. Korman may recommend a tube insertion in the days following the procedure for excess drainage. Within 2 to 3 weeks, most Mountain View patients are able to resume normal activity. Further information about breast reduction recovery can be discussed with Dr. Korman at his Mountain View practice.
