Breast Reduction Results

After surgery, swelling and bruising will dissipate within a few weeks. Your breasts may take 6 months or more to settle into their new shape.

Free from excessively large and heavy breasts, the majority of breast reduction patients are very pleased with their results. Patient satisfaction with breast reduction is among the highest of any plastic surgery procedure, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

By making your breasts smaller and lighter, breast reduction relieves musculoskeletal pain in the shoulders, neck and back. Your new breast size should lessen physical limitations and improve your ability to enjoy exercise and outdoor activities.

Breasts that are tighter and more firm can do wonders for women who were once self-conscious about their large breasts. With a shapelier bustline and a better proportioned figure, breast reduction can give your self-confidence a boost.
