Breast Reduction

Women with oversized breasts often experience both physical and emotional discomfort that affects their quality of life. Large breasts can be quite heavy and put tremendous pressure on the back, neck, and shoulders. Additionally, they can lead to uncomfortable skin irritation along the inframammary fold. Breast reduction is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess breast tissue to restore a more proportionate and youthful bustline. At Hotchandani Laser, Vein, and Cosmetic Surgery, patients who desire smaller and more comfortable breasts can obtain a customized surgical plan that addresses their needs.

  • Disproportionately large breasts
  • Physical pain as a result of having large breasts
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Nipples that point downward
The Procedure

Breast reduction is an outpatient surgery performed at our Green Bay, WI location using general anesthesia. It is crucial to arrange for someone to transport you to and from the facility. You should also have a friend or relative accompany you during the first 24 hours of recovery.

For mild-to-moderate correction, an incision is created around the areola and down the lower breast pole, through which excess fatty tissue and skin are removed. Liposuction may be performed alone with local anesthesia for minor reduction or alongside an excisional technique to produce optimal results. For extensive correction, another incision may be placed along the inframammary fold. The nipple-areolar complex may be adjusted before sutures are placed. Whenever possible, Dr. Hotchandani will place the incisions in areas that can be easily concealed with clothing.
