Women with very large breasts may experience numerous problems due to excessive weight of the breasts. These symptoms may include neck and back pain, deep shoulder strap grooving from the brassiere, and skin irritation. Additionally, the person may be overly self-conscious about her appearance and/or have difficulty fitting into clothing properly.
Breast reduction creates a smaller, lighter and firmer breast by removing skin, fat and glandular tissue. This creates a breast that is better shaped and proportionate to a woman’s body.
Dr. Grover utilizes a short-scar technique for many of his breast reduction surgeries. This “vertical mammaplasty” technique avoids any scar beneath the breast, and provides a more shapely breast.
The procedure is performed using general anesthesia in either an inpatient or outpatient setting. The procedure may be covered by medical insurance if deemed medically necessary.

Breast reduction, also known as a reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure designed to reduce the size and weight of the breasts and to improve the appearance of the nipple areolar complexes. Women with large breasts often deal with chronic neck, back and shoulder pain; headaches; musculoskeletal chest pain; posture problems; rashes and skin irritations; and even hand numbness. Large breasts can limit physical activity that is necessary to maintain a healthy, fit lifestyle.

Breast reduction surgery has been very successful in helping women with symptomatic large breasts feel more comfortable and confident. Breast reduction patients comprise the happiest, most satisfied plastic surgery patient group, even in the face of minor wound healing issues after surgery, because they are so much more functional and comfortable. Many patients do well with exercise programs after surgery and go on to lose weight and become more fit. Candidates for breast reduction should be nonsmokers who are in good health, and have realistic expectations about the procedure and potential results.
There are several ways to perform breast reduction surgery, with different incisions involved. Dr. Sanjay Grover will perform a thorough examination and review of your medical history, and she will help you decide between the various surgical options. Breast reduction surgery may be performed in the hospital with an overnight observation stay or in an ambulatory setting, with discharge to home within a few hours after surgery. Initial results will be visible immediately, but final results will be revealed as you continue to heal and the swelling goes down. Scars will fade over time.
