Breast Reduction in San Diego, CA

What Is A Breast Reduction?

Oversized breasts can create social, functional, and physical challenges for women. In addition, extremely large breasts can create self-image issues and overall embarrassment, as well as pain in both the neck and back. Dr. Jose Rodriguez, a board-eligible plastic surgeon in San Diego, CA, has helped countless women get back their confidence and enjoy the life they want through surgical reduction of their breasts. This aesthetic procedure at Rodriguez Plastic Surgery reduces excess fat, tissue, and skin to redefine and reshape the breasts to a more normal size. This surgery also reconstructs the size of the nipples and moves them so they are symmetrical with the new breast size. In most situations, a breast lift is also implemented to produce a tighter and younger-looking appearance.

How Does Breast Reduction Surgery Work?

Breast reduction surgeries are carried out in our private operating room. The length of time your surgery may take will depend on several factors, including which incision method is used and the amount of reduction, as well as the positions of the areolas and nipples. Based on the complexity of the size and overall reduction, either an inverted-T or a straight line (vertical) incision will be used. The breast tissue will be removed, and the existing skin and tissue will be tightened. Typically, liposuction is needed for fat removal to reduce the breast size. Dr. Rodriguez will discuss all of these issues and what you can expect when you visit for your consultation. You can anticipate some amount of scarring, but with advances in surgical techniques, it should be minimal.
