This 53 year old patient underwent breast reduction. Removal of large breast volumes can alleviate neck and back discomfort associated with breast hypertrophy. Such was the case with this patient where her symptoms resolved and she feels much better in her clothes. She is pictured here 1 year out from her surgery. Breast reduction has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates of all plastic surgery procedures.
This 47 year old patient was suffering from back and neck discomfort due to her large breast. It’s not always simply the volume that can cause these symptoms, but the geometry of the breast themselves. Here she is shown 1 month after surgery and then again several months after surgery. Notice how the scars begin to fade and will over the years.
This 26 year old patient wanted her breast volume reduced and the overall look of her breast improved. Both of these goals were accomplished through a slightly extended lollipop incision. This incision extends around the nipple and then down to the breast fold. It continues towards the outside of the breast if there is excess skin in this area. Scars towards the middle of your body do not always heal well so Dr. Lee tries to avoid this as much as possible.
