Breast Reduction

Women with very large breasts often experience a lot of discomfort, because of the weight of their breasts. Pain in the neck, back, and shoulders, as well as skin irritation below the breasts, are just a few of the health problems these women face. Over-sized breasts that are proportionately too large also make it difficult to find clothes that fit well.

Here at Bandak Plastic Surgery we perform breast reduction surgery, to help women achieve the balance and proportion they desire.

Are you a good candidate?

Breast reduction is recommended for women who are having severe physical discomfort, because they have large, heavy breasts. If your breasts restrict physical activity, or you have other problems such as shoulder marks caused by bra indentations, you may be a good candidate for breast reduction.

The Procedure

Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure that is performed under general anesthesia. Surgery takes 2 to 3 hours. During the procedure Dr. Bandak will remove excess breast tissue, skin, and fat, and also reshape the breasts. The nipple-areola complex will also be reduced and repositioned.

What is Recovery Like?

There will be some bruising and swelling post-op, but this should go away within 7 to 10 days. Wearing a surgical bra helps to minimize these symptoms. It takes 6 to 12 months for the final results to show.


Breast reduction can lead to asymmetrical breasts, and also reduce or eliminate the ability to breast feed. Therefore, women who would like to breast feed in the future should delay mammoplasty.

Breast reduction creates positives for most women, as it improves their body-image, and makes them feel more comfortable.
