Large breasts can also be a source for “too much attention,” giving rise to personal embarrassment. Overly large breasts may also interfere with your ability to play sports or engage in other physically-demanding activities. Breast reduction surgery is sometimes performed in teenagers to reduce the size and weight of the breasts and create a more proportioned appearance.
Breast reduction mammaplasty removes the excess tissues that cause overly large breasts: glandular tissue, fat and skin. Dr. Apesos has the training and experience to not only reduce the overall size of the breast, but to shape and proportion it for a look that is natural and comfortable.
Insurance carriers are sometimes unwilling to cover the expenses for this important and curative surgery. We have developed a plan for the surgery for such cases. Dr. Apesos’ years of experience produce results with scars made as short as possible. Post-operative taping with elastic surgical tape will promote good healing to keep the scars as small as possible.
To discuss whether breast reduction is right for you, and to understand the options and risks, please call our office for a consultation appointment.
