Relief, Reassurance, and Natural-looking Results
Dr. Matt Chhatre performs breast reduction surgery serving the greater Kansas City area.
Overly large breasts and heavy breasts can cause some women to experience self-image issues. The extra weight can cause significant pain in the back, neck and shoulders. This condition can limit your physical activity, irritate skin beneath the breast crease, cause deep, painful indentations from your bra straps, and bring you unwanted attention from others. If you are suffering because of large, heavy breasts, breast reduction surgery can help.

The Breast Reduction Procedure
Breast reduction consists primarily of the removal of excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size more proportionate to your body. This will relieve the discomfort associated with overly large breasts and restore a natural balance to your body. A breast reduction procedure begins with anesthesia for comfort during the operation. The surgeon will typically create an incision around or directly below the nipple. Next, the underlying breast tissue is reduced, lifted and reshaped to create a more youthful contour and increase firmness. The nipple and areola are then repositioned. Once the breasts are reshaped, the remaining skin is tightened and incisions are closed. Scars resulting from the operation are concealed in the breast contours. Some incision lines on the breast surface are permanent, but usually fade and improve over time.
Risks of Breast Reduction
Women considering breast reduction surgery need to be in good physical health, preferably maintaining stable body weight, and have realistic expectations. Like any surgical procedure, a breast reduction does involve some risks, such as unfavorable scars, infection, persistent pain, swelling and bruising. Dr. Chhatre will discuss the risks with breast reduction candidates during their consultation.
