What is Breast Reduction? 

Breast Reduction surgery lifts your breasts while removing fat, glandular tissue, and skin. What this does is make your breasts smaller, lighter, and firmer. Dr. Rod, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Dermacare Plastic Surgery, may also reduce the size of the areola. You will be left with breasts that are proportionate to your body, figure, and frame. 

If you suffer from neck and back pain, or your physical activity is limited due to overly large breasts, a breast reduction may be suitable for you. Perfect breast size is a very individual thing, and your breast reduction surgery is planned just for you and only you. Breast reduction will remove the excess weight and reshape your breasts.

Dr. Rod performs Breast Reduction surgery in Phoenix and the surrounding Arizona areas. Schedule your free consultation today to find out if you qualify for a Breast Reduction. 

Breast Reduction Candidates  

Breast reduction is beneficial for individuals living with overly large breasts who feel that their breasts impact their health physically and emotionally. Ideal candidates for breast reduction will be bothered with their large breasts, struggle with physical activity due to the size of their breasts, experience back, neck, or shoulder pain due to their bras, and have realistic expectations regarding the outcomes of breast reduction surgery. 

If your breasts are drooping, but you are happy with their size, then a breast lift may be a better plastic surgery procedure for you. For more information regarding candidacy, please get in touch with our office today to schedule a consultation.

Breast Reduction Techniques

The breast lift procedure can be achieved using an array of breast reduction incision patterns. These include:  

Lollipop Incision

The lollipop incision is ideal for individuals with moderate breast sagging. It involves creating two incisions: one around the edge of the areola and another running vertically from the bottom of the areola to the inframammary fold. 

Anchor Incision 

The anchor incision, also known as the inverted-T incision, involves three incisions. One is made around the edge of the areola, a second is made vertically from the areola to the breast crease, and a third is made along the breast crease. This technique allows for maximum tissue removal and reshaping. 



How long does it take breast reduction to heal?

The initial healing period after breast reduction surgery is about 2 to 3 weeks, during which you may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort. However, full recovery can take several months, including fading scars and the complete resolution of swelling.

How long does it take for swelling to go down after breast reduction?

Swelling after breast reduction surgery begins to subside within a few weeks, but significant swelling may persist for 2 to 3 months. Wearing compression garments, following Dr. Rod’s postoperative care instructions, and avoiding strenuous activities can help reduce swelling more quickly.

When can I wear a normal bra after breast reduction?

After a breast reduction, patients are typically advised to wear a surgical bra or a supportive sports bra without underwires for about 4 to 6 weeks. Once Dr. Rod confirms that the initial healing is complete and the swelling has sufficiently decreased, usually around 6 weeks post-surgery, you can start wearing a normal bra.

Am I a good candidate for a breast reduction?

Overly large breasts may cause some women to experience both health and emotional problems, leaving them with a lack of self-confidence and physical pain and discomfort. The weight of excess breast tissue can impair your ability to lead a physically active lifestyle due to the discomfort and pain. If this sounds like you, you may be a candidate for Breast Reduction surgery. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Rod at Dermacare Plastic Surgery today to determine if Breast Reduction is right for you. Breast Reduction Surgery may be for you if: Feeling that your breasts are too large. Your breasts limit your physical activity. You experience back, neck, and shoulder pain caused by the weight of your breasts. You have regular indentations from bra straps that support heavy, pendulous breasts. You have skin irritation beneath the breast crease. Your breasts hang low and have stretched skin. Your nipples rest below the breast crease when your breasts are unsupported. You have enlarged areolas, which are caused by stretched skin. Schedule your consultation at Dermacare Plastic Surgery today to find out if you are a good candidate for Breast Reduction. You can visit our office in Goodyear, Arizona, where we treat clients from Scottsdale, Phoenix, Goodyear, Tempe, and all of the surrounding areas.

Can I have another procedure done at the same time?

Absolutely! Many Phoenix patients elect to have a Tummy Tuck performed at the same time as their Breast Reduction. This combination of procedures is known as a “Mommy Makeover.” The advantages of this plastic surgery procedure combination include more extensive and cost-efficient improvements with less total downtime and time off work or school.

What can I expect during the breast reduction procedure?

Breast Reduction surgery is done under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. Depending on certain factors, the procedure usually takes between two to three hours. During your Breast Reduction procedure, Dr. Rod will create your more desired size, shape, and symmetry by removing excess skin and breast tissue. He will use the most precise closure technique that will allow you to heal with the least amount of scarring.

How long will the results from my breast reduction surgery last?

Your breasts will remain a consistent size as long as you do not gain or lose a significant amount of weight or become pregnant. However, gravity and the effects of aging will eventually cause your breasts to loosen and sag over time. If this has happened, a Breast Lift may be what you need to reshape and contour your breasts.

What can I expect regarding breast reduction surgery aftercare?

Our Phoenix board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Rod will discuss how long it will take before you are cleared to return to your normal level of activity and work. After your Breast Reduction Surgery, you will be given detailed instructions about your post-surgical care.

How much does a breast reduction cost in Phoenix?

The cost of breast reduction surgery in Goodyear typically ranges from $7,000 to $12,000. This cost includes the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, facility fees, and any necessary follow-up appointments.

How much will my bra size change after a breast reduction?

The amount of reduction in bra size after breast reduction surgery varies depending on the amount of tissue removed and the patient’s desired outcome. On average, most women go down by one to two cup sizes.
