Breast Reduction

Step into a world of improved comfort and renewed confidence with Dr. Sony Truong's expert breast reduction procedure. Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure designed to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve a breast size that is in proportion with your body.

Benefits of Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, can offer several benefits to individuals who are experiencing physical or emotional discomfort due to large breasts. Here are some key benefits:

  • Reduction in Chronic Pain: Large breasts can cause significant discomfort in the neck, back, and shoulders. By reducing their size, this surgery can alleviate such chronic pain.
  • Nerve Pain Relief: The weight of large breasts can compress nerve pathways, leading to pain and numbness in the upper body. Reduction surgery can relieve this pressure and the associated symptoms.
  • Elimination of Skin Issues: Large breasts can lead to skin issues such as rashes or infections under the breast crease. Reduction surgery can help alleviate these problems.
  • Active Lifestyle: Large breasts can make physical activity uncomfortable or even painful. Post-surgery, individuals often find it easier to exercise and lead a more active lifestyle.

What Can Breast Reduction Address?

Breast reduction surgery can offer numerous benefits, but like any surgical procedure, it may also come with potential issues or complications. Below are the benefits and potential issues:

  • Alleviation of Back Pain: Large breasts can put a strain on the back, causing chronic pain. Breast reduction surgery can help alleviate this pain.
  • Improved Physical Comfort: Large breasts can cause discomfort during physical activities. Reduction can make exercise and movement more comfortable.
  • Better Proportioned Figure: The surgery can result in a more balanced body silhouette.
  • Relief from Skin Irritation: Oversized breasts can lead to skin irritation beneath the breast crease. Reduction can help eliminate this issue.

    What happens during Breast Reduction?

    The breast reduction procedure begins with anesthesia, followed by making incisions on the breasts. Excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin are removed to reduce the size of your breasts. You may feel mild discomfort during recovery, but this will subside over time. Expect a boost in confidence as you embrace your new look.


    Recovery from breast reduction varies but generally involves rest, avoiding strenuous activities, and wearing a support bra. Swelling and discomfort will gradually lessen over weeks, revealing your beautiful new shape.

    Post-Operative Care

    After surgery, you'll need to rest, avoid heavy lifting, wear a support bra, and attend follow-up appointments. Each step is crucial to ensure a smooth healing process and optimal results.

    Addressing Mild To Moderate Issues

    Breast reduction surgery can address a variety of mild to moderate issues associated with having large breasts. Here's how it can help:

    • Chronic Pain Relief: Large breasts can contribute to chronic pain in the neck, back, and shoulders due to the weight strain. A breast reduction can alleviate this pain by reducing the weight and strain on these areas.
    • Improved Physical Activity: The size and weight of large breasts can make physical activity uncomfortable or even painful, limiting participation in sports or exercise. Post-surgery, individuals often find it easier to maintain an active lifestyle.
    • Skin Irritation: Large breasts can cause skin irritation or rashes under the breast crease due to sweat and friction. By reducing their size, these skin issues can be minimized or eliminated.
    • Better Sleep: Large breasts can make certain sleeping positions uncomfortable, affecting sleep quality. After a reduction, many individuals report improved comfort during sleep.
    • Improved Posture: The weight of large breasts can cause poor posture, leading to issues like rounded shoulders or hunching. Breast reduction can help improve posture by balancing the weight on the front of the body.
    • Psychological Distress: Oversized breasts can lead to self-consciousness, anxiety, or reduced self-esteem. A breast reduction can help improve mental well-being and body image.
    • Clothing Fit: Large breasts can make it difficult to find clothes that fit properly, causing discomfort or self-consciousness. A reduction can increase clothing options and improve overall comfort.
