What Is Breast Reduction Surgery?
Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical breast procedure designed to reduce the size of the breasts. The procedure involves the removal of excess breast tissue, the tightening of skin the repositioning of the nipple and areola.
Breast reduction surgery has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates of all plastic surgery procedures. This life-changing surgery can address a number of unwanted issues, such as:
- Chronic back problems
- Neck and shoulder pain
- Excess bra strap pressure
- Inability to wear a variety of wardrobe options
- Restricted physical activity
- Difficulty sleeping
With reduction mammoplasty, Dr. Hyman can make your breasts smaller, more comfortable and more manageable.
Is Breast Reduction Surgery Right for Me?
If you are at a healthy and stable weight and in generally good health, you are likely a good candidate for breast reduction surgery. If the size and weight of your breasts affects your self esteem, prevents you from enjoying certain activities or causes physical discomfort, breast reduction can help you to:
- Find bras and clothing that fit well much more easily
- Lay on your stomach more easily
- Achieve better posture and health
- Exercise more comfortably
- Reduce pain from bra straps digging into your shoulders
Breast reduction can make it easier to exercise, improving both your health and overall well-being. If you smoke, you’ll need to quit before surgery and remain smoke-free throughout your recovery to facilitate optimal healing.
The best way to find out if reduction mammoplasty is right for you is to meet personally with Dr. Hyman to discuss your candidacy. During this important meeting, he will discuss your concerns and answer your questions. He will examine your physical condition and determine your candidacy for the procedure.
It is not uncommon for men to develop excess glandular tissue in their breasts. The condition is called gynecomastia, and it can occur in a single breast (unilaterally) or both breasts (bilaterally). If you are a man who suffers from gynecomastia, Dr. Hyman can help with male breast reduction surgery.

Dr. Hyman will tailor your breast reduction surgery to reflect your specific goals and situation. Your procedure will be performed in our state-of-the-art, AAAASF-accredited, on-site surgical center under general anesthesia. The surgery typically only lasts a couple of hours, and you can return home the same day.
During your breast reduction, Dr. Hyman will remove excess breast tissue, tighten the skin and reposition your nipple and areola to create a balanced, natural-looking appearance.
