What Is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction is a surgical operation designed to permanently reduce excess and unwanted breast tissue mass. It is ideal for patients with health conditions that result in large, heavy breasts, such as gigantomastia, macromastia, breast hypertrophy, or gynecomastia. Formally known as a reduction mammoplasty, the breast reduction surgery carefully removes skin, fat, and tissue from the breasts.

Breast Reduction for Women

Breast reduction is ideal for women who are uncomfortable due to the size of their breasts. Many women have health conditions characterized by heavy breasts, including gigantomastia, macromastia, and breast hypertrophy–in all of these conditions, patients have overly large or pendulous breasts. Large breasts can be physically uncomfortable for women–causing chronic neck and back pain, bad posture, and skin irritation–it can also cause deep psychological discomfort in the form of loss of self-esteem and self-confidence. Our female patients with these issues experience a lack of confidence at the gym, working out, and in social situations. Breast reduction by our top plastic surgeon can help female patients in Seattle restore confidence and comfort in their bodies.

Some of our female patients may also benefit from simultaneous breast lift in addition to their breast reduction. The breast lift raises and contours the remaining breast tissue to preserve a round, perky breast shape.

Male Breast Reduction for Gynecomastia

For male patients, in particular, breast reduction surgery is an excellent treatment for gynecomastia, a medical condition that results in enlarged breast tissue in men. Gynecomastia is a condition that is physically uncomfortable for our male patients and deeply psychologically distressing. Breast reduction for men allows them to regain comfort and confidence in their bodies.
