Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that removes excess tissue and/or fat from the breasts to reduce their size and make them more balanced with one’s overall body proportions. Breasts that are too large and heavy can be quite cumbersome and ultimately lead to both physical and emotional discomfort. Overly large breasts can be caused by a variety of factors, including “overdevelopment,” pregnancy and breastfeeding, genetics, and others. With breast reduction surgery, our skilled plastic surgeons can address the aesthetic and physical concerns caused by excessively large breasts and create more balanced proportions between the breasts and the body.
“As a fellow medical professional, I observed one of Dr. Hakki’s procedures and his staff. Wonderful office, clean and elegant. Office Staff is welcoming and professional. Dr. Hakki worked with the confidence of a master artist. I sent my wife to him almost immediately. Dr. Hakki’s eye for beauty is only surpassed by the confidence in his work, and He has the resume to back it up. Highly recommend.”
A minimum of one to two weeks of recovery is often necessary after breast reduction surgery. Patients can expect temporary side effects such as swelling and bruising in the breast areas, which should fade as the incisions heal. A surgical bra may also be prescribed to help speed the healing process along. It is very important that patients refrain from strenuous exercises and lifting heavy objects for several weeks following breast reduction surgery.

In general, true breast reduction concerns can most likely only be effectively addressed by surgically removing the excess fat and tissue. This is especially true if you have an abundance of glandular tissue, in which there is no other way for it to be eliminated without surgery.
There are “breast reduction exercises” that claim to provide natural results, but these can be fleeting and impossible to reduce all of the fatty tissues. Additionally, any muscle built may strengthen the pectoral muscles but will have no effect on the excess glandular tissues. Similarly, weight loss cannot guarantee a reduction in size (or proportionate size) or enhanced shape – nor can it permanently remove the excess fat and tissue, which are typically the root cause of the discomfort from large and heavy breasts.
If the reason for the breast reduction meets the medical requirement eligibility, some individuals may receive partial or full insurance coverage for the procedure, depending on their policy. Patients must exemplify long-term symptoms and be able to provide documentation (with the assistance of their surgeon). Symptoms may include:
