In addition, uneven and very large breasts can create insecurity and self-confidence issues and embarrassment, as well as neck and back pain. Dr. Phi P.

This surgery is helpful for women who experience stress and emotional anxiety or find it difficult to lead an active life because of the weight of their breasts. Also, if you deal with ongoing skin rashes or irritations as well as back or neck pain, this surgery can eliminate many of these annoyances. It is important patients are at a normal weight, and find a trained surgeon who understands their desired outcome and has the aptitude to produce a pleasing and natural appearance.
Breast Reduction Reviews
"VERY HONEST, TRUSTWORTHY, EXPERIENCED – I recently had breast augmentation. At first, I was very skeptic about having surgery and had a hard time trying to find a reliable doctor. I met with a few different doctors, and they made all kinds of suggestions but I didn't feel like I trusted them, but when I met Dr. Nguyen, I knew he was the one I'd stick with. When I came to see him for my consultation, both him and his staff were very helpful, they took their time assisting me with my concerns, and made me feel really comfortable. I also consulted with him regarding another procedure, but he was honest enough to tell me that he didn't think i needed it. To me, that shows that he wasn't trying to make extra money off of me, (compared to the other doctors i met) and that he was giving me his honest opinion. Now after having my surgery, I can definately say that I'm so grateful that I picked the right doctor. He's very skillful, I completely trust him, and would definately refer him to all my friends and family without a second thought. I get compliments on my surgery all the time, and I feel great! THANKS DR. NGUYEN AND STAFF!"- J. / Citysearch / Jul 07, 2006

Plan Your Procedure
Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient process and is performed with general anesthesia. The timing of surgery is dependent upon various factors, including the complexity of the incision, the overall reduction technique, and finally, how much reduction is required For most patients, liposuction is used for fat and tissue elimination to decrease the breast size. During the private consultation, all of these factors are addressed. The issue surrounding scarring is also scrupulously discussed as it is common for visible scar lines to occur. However, surgical skill and advanced methods have led to a noticeable reduction in the visibility of scarring. Depending on the intricacy of the reduction, either an anchor or a vertical incision will be incorporated. The breast tissue will then be removed, and the existing tissue and skin pulled tight and secured. Nipple and areola repositioning or reduction is also a major factor in a breast reduction surgery. Dr. Phi will prioritize your requests and aesthetic goals while repositioning and resizing your nipples and areolas in a visually appealing, practical manner.
What to Expect
After surgery, you will be observed closely in our comfortable recovery space and then discharged home to begin the healing process. A small, tube-like draining device will most likely be implanted near the surgical site to reduce drainage from swelling and bleeding. A medical sports bra will be put in place for several days that will boost blood flow to the breasts during the initial healing period. Within about a month, the breasts will position themselves and settle and the post-op effects will go away. The vast selection of our patients remark they feel less weight and more reassured. After breast reduction surgery, you can enjoy the clothes you could not wear before and feel enthusiastic with your new figure. Remember, it is mindful to adhere to a healthy lifestyle so the results are not affected in a negative way.
