Breast reduction is a procedure designed to reduce the size of the breasts. This goal is accomplished by reducing the excess soft tissue of the breast, which is a combination of dense fibrous tissue and fat, and the skin envelope that covers it. Repositioning of the nipple in a more elevated, pleasing position is an important part of this surgery. This is a very popular procedure because it reduces breast size, improves breast shape, and lifts the breast into a more favorable position. Dr. Bowers finds this procedure to be particularly rewarding because it provides marked improvement in the appearance of the breast and the real possibility of symptomatic relief from back, shoulder, and neck pain.
At the initial consultation, Dr. Bowers will carefully obtain pertinent medical history, gain an understanding of the individual symptomatic complaints, and make an assessment of the amount of breast tissue to be removed. The degree of breast reduction is a highly individual and personal decision making process. Dr. Bowers makes certain that each patient is actively involved in this important part of the surgical planning. Patients are excited about this procedure because it has such a profound positive affect on appearance, quality of life, and symptoms. Dr. Bowers has had a vast experience with breast reduction surgery and shares his patients’ enthusiasm for it.
