What You Should Know about Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast Reduction Surgery in San Francisco Bay Area

Disproportionate breasts may look awkward or cause immense discomfort. Breast reduction surgery helps to correct these problems by removing excess skin and breast tissue, so they are more proportionate to your frame and body shape.

Will there be scarring after breast reduction?

A lot of women are concerned about scars after surgery. While you shouldn’t expect zero scarring, our doctors are highly skilled to ensure scarring is minimal. Scarring may be contained  in the armpit, around the nipple or straight down to the fold beneath the breast and in the fold itself. Scars are minuscule in size and inconspicuous. Moreover, using special creams and lotions or laser treatments can help to fade surgical scarring.

What is the minimum age for breast reduction surgery?

Breast development can continue into the early twenties. It is advisable not to opt for this procedure before development has stopped.  Continuing to develop after a breast reduction procedure,  may leave you with unsatisfactory results and / or the surgery being repeated.  Adjusting to this surgery during teen years may also be emotionally difficult. Insurance providers will not cover the cost of a breast reduction if a woman is younger than eighteen years of age.
