Breast Reduction

Of the many plastic surgery procedures available today, none has a higher patient satisfaction rate than breast reduction. Sacramento women who choose this procedure seek relief from large breasts that have caused both physical and emotional pain for many years – often since their teens years or early adulthood. Neck, back and shoulder problems are common among large-breasted women, and some are forced to limit their physical activities. Many women however, find that the psychological impact of the embarrassment they feel is worse than the physical discomfort.

Breast Reduction Candidates

To help you decide whether breast reduction surgery is right for you, Dr. Kaufman will take the time to review and discuss with you your surgical options. His surgical approach will be based largely on what you look like now and what you’d like your result to look like.

This procedure truly has the potential to change your life. Read the breast reduction studies we’ve compiled for you to find out how.

What to Expect

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is performed on an outpatient basis. During the procedure, Dr. Kaufman will reduce the volume of your breasts by removing fat and breast tissue as well as eliminating excess skin. The surgery typically takes between 2 to 4 hours. It’s often performed in combination with a breast lift. Recovery varies from patient to patient, but generally you can anticipate feeling good in about a week and back to normal within 6 to 8 weeks following surgery.

Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery

After breast reduction surgery, Sacramento women immediately feel the effects of having the weight lifted off their chests. They also enjoy benefits like these:

  1. Improved self-confidence
  2. A better-proportioned, more pleasing figure
  3. Relief from upper body pain and rashes
  4. Increased comfort during physical activity
  5. A wider range of clothing options

One of the best ways to envision the possibilities is to view before and after photos of real patients.
