Breast Reduction

breast reduction modelHeavy, large breasts can cause you physical, emotional and social discomfort. Breasts that are disproportionately large compared to your body may draw unwanted attention. Women with heavy breasts often complain of back, neck and shoulder pain, which can prevent them from engaging in their favorite physical activities. If you are looking to improve the size and shape of cumbersome breasts, breast reduction surgery may be right for you.


Women considering breast reduction surgery should be in good health and have realistic expectations about their results. You may be considering breast reduction if you identify with one or more of the following:

  • Breasts are too large compared to your body
  • Large breasts that cause back, neck, and shoulder pain
  • Deep grooves in your shoulders caused by support bras
  • Discomfort during exercise and other physical activities because of your breast size
  • Unwanted attention because of your breast size


Breast reduction surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure while the patient is under general anesthesia. Incisions are created along the lower portion of the breasts, through which excess fat and skin are excised. Sagging tissue may then be lifted to provide your breasts with a more attractive appearance. After that incisions are closed, and a compression bra may be placed to improve your results.

Incision Placement

The placement of your incisions will vary depending on the extent of correction you require.

  • Donut incisions run along the border of the areolas
  • Lollipop incisions are created around the areolas and down the lower breast tissue (this is the most common incision used by Dr. Ashoor)
  • Anchor incisions, also known as “inverted-T incisions,” are placed around the areolas, vertically down the breast tissue, and across the inframammary creases


Liposuction may be used to remove fat from the breasts. In some cases, it enhances definition for a better breast appearance.


You will experience bruising and swelling following your breast reduction. You will be required to rest for several days in an upright position, although a compression bra will facilitate the healing process. Patients can typically return to work within one to two weeks of their procedure. You can then resume your regular exercise routine, with your doctor’s permission, after four to six weeks. Major swelling should subside after six weeks, at which time your final results will become apparent.


Breast reduction surgery provides long-lasting results. However, if your enlarged breast size was caused by weight gain, excess fat can develop again. A healthy lifestyle can help you maintain the quality of your results.


Dr. Ashoor utilizes a short-scar technique to minimize visible scarring. All incisions are placed in discreet locations to mask their appearance. However, the outcome of your scar is unpredictable and depends on your skin color and genetics. If you do develop visible scarring it is likely to fade over time, but this is not guaranteed.
