Understanding Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction aims to reduce the volume of the breasts, and reduce the amount of ptosis (drooping) and possible asymmetry, in order to obtain breasts that suit the patient’s overall physical make-up.

THE IDEAL CANDIDATE

Any patient with large breasts causing discomfort or physical pain (neck, shoulders or back).

THE PROCEDURE

Dr. Zadeh removes the excess glandular tissue. The residual breast tissue is then lifted, and remodelled. Subsequently, the excess skin is then removed to ensure a proper shape and curvature (curvature) of the new breasts. Underarm liposuction is often recommended to obtain a more sculpted result.
