Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction, also known as a reduction mammoplasty, decreases the size of one or both breasts by removing excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin. This procedure is often completed to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts in women and is used to correct gynecomastia in men.

There are many topics to discuss when considering breast reduction and being completely candid with the surgeon will help to insure the best outcome is achieved. A client's lifestyle, health and wishes are all taken into consideration. Below are just a few items that are discussed during the consultation with Warren Clinic Plastic Surgery.

  • Why is breast reduction being considered and is it the right procedure for the patient's expectations?
  • Discuss the patient's medical conditions and previous surgeries, drug allergies and medical treatments, including current medications, vitamins and herbal supplements as well as alcohol and tobacco use.
  • Family history of breast cancer and results of any mammograms or previous biopsies.

Our surgeons and staff will use this information to evaluate the patient's general health status and any pre-existing health conditions. They will discuss general risk factors as well as any individual risk factors a patient may have. They will also talk to the patient about the recommended course of treatment and any potential complications. If it is decided that breast reduction is right for the patient, then photographs will be taken for the patient's medical record.
