What is a breast reduction?

Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that reduces breast size to improve your quality of life. The procedure involves removing excess breast fat, glandular tissues, and skin to reduce the overall breast size. This procedure is ideal for beauties with overly large breasts that cause numerous physical and emotional problems, such as back pain, neck pain, rashes, etc. A breast reduction can help you achieve a breast size proportionate to your body.

Breast Reduction with Lift

Age: 50-55

Effect: This beauty’s breasts are reduced and lifted simultaneously in balance with her body frame. This is done without the need for scars under the breasts which gives her youthful feminine projection rather than a flattened appearance with a traditional reduction.

You’re the ideal candidate for breast reduction if you:

  • Are in generally good physical and mental health.
  • Don’t have underlying medical conditions that prevent optimal wound healing or recovery.
  • Don’t smoke or are willing to stop smoking several months before and after the surgery.
  • Have realistic expectations from breast reduction surgery.
  • Experience physical or emotional problems because of the size of your breasts.
  • Have breasts that limit your ability to engage in physical activities.
  • Have shoulder indentations from your bra straps.

Dr. Chaowen Wu carefully examines your breasts, discusses your goals, and reviews your medical history to determine if you’re the ideal candidate. She also curates the procedure according to your specific goals to ensure optimal results that align with your expectations.

What happens during breast reduction surgery?

Dr. Wu performs breast reduction surgeries under general anesthesia. A breast reduction is a highly personalized procedure wherein the surgical plan is curated according to your breast tissues, skin, and nipple size. Dr. Wu will provide a complete overview of the treatment steps before the procedure, so you’ll know exactly what to expect.

During the surgery, Dr. Wu makes strategic incisions to remove excess skin, breast fat, and glandular tissues. If you have downward-pointing nipples, they will be repositioned so they face forwards. Enlarged nipples might be altered to reduce their size. After all the necessary changes are made, the surgeon will close the incisions with sutures, protect them with waterproof bandages, and place your breasts in a supportive recovery bra.

What’s the recovery process like after a breast reduction?

Afterward you’ll experience some discomfort for 2-3 days after your surgery and quickly heal over the next 2-3 weeks. You will be able to shower 2 days after surgery. Your waterproof bandages will be removed after 2-3 weeks and you will begin scar optimization therapy. It is typically sufficient to take 1 week off work and avoid heavy lifting or lifting your arms overhead for 2 weeks. You will continue to wear a soft bra for 12 weeks then go bra shopping at 3 months with your new smaller and lifted breast shape!

“Dr. Wu has such an amazing and gentle spirit! Being in my early 20’s I was nervous about the process of undergoing such a big operation but after my first consultation with her I immediately knew that she was the right person to do my reduction and that I was in good hands. I got a breast reduction back in April 2021, now 5 months later I’m super pleased with my results. I had no discomfort or pain following surgery because to Dr. Wu's excellent skills, and I was able to heal in just two weeks, which I was ecstatic about. Dr. Wu performs exceptionally well in every surgery she undergoes. I strongly suggest her to anybody; you will not be disappointed! ♥️”
