Most patients who feel their breasts are too large consider Breast Reduction Surgery. In almost all cases where the breast is considered too large, the breast shape is considered saggy, droopy or ‘ptotic’. There are many ways to perform breast reduction surgery and neqrly all methods include lifting the breast to improve the shape.


Today is a week since my surgery and I just saw Dr. Newman for my second post-op visit. I am so thrilled. First of all his staff is wonderful. I am amazed at how I feel now only one week later. Dr. Newman told me that I'd be OK to return to work this past Monday only 3 days after surgery. Honestly, I didn't believe him but as it turned out he was correct. I returned on Tuesday after surgery last Friday. At this point I have almost no pain and I only have a small bruise on my left side. My result is amazing and exactly what I told him I wanted. I heard from other people how good he is and, to be honest, I'm amazed at how easy this was. Go Dr. N!!!

I Don’t Want to Reduce My Breast Size

Some patients who feel their breast size is large and their shape somewhat droopy do not desire a reduction in size and only wish to correct the shape. IT is important to understand that it is the heavy weight of the breast tissue that pulls the shape down in the first place.

One of the reasons why reduction is suggested in many cases is because larger breasts will tend to sag again in a shorter period of time. When a breast lift is done on a larger breast there are some techniques that can add internal support the breast to make the result last longer.

There are many techniques used for breast lift surgery in the large breast and they all included some sort of internal support techniques. Some doctors perform breast lifts that tighten the skin only. I do not feel these techniques are appropriate in the large breast. There are select cases where a NO VISIBLE SCAR technique can be used but, with a large breast, this is often not advisable.
