Breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure which was especially designed to treat women with large breasts. Women with this condition can suffer from a variety of problems, including back and neck pain, breathing problems and skin irritation. In these cases, breast reduction can bring significant relief.

During the surgery, Dr. Fantozzi will remove excess skin, mammary tissue and fat from the breasts. If necessary, the nipples will also be repositioned and reshaped. Because the surgery will change the shape of the breasts, this could also be combined with breast lifting in order to further enhance the results of your surgery. There are different methods for doing this. Over the past few years, there have been many new techniques developed for breast reduction that create less scarring and promote faster recovery. It is however important to realize that even with those techniques, some visible scarring will occur. Dr. Fantozzi will work closely with you to determine which method will give you the best possible results and will make sure to reduce the scarring to a minimum. Even though there are different factors which can influence the shape of your breasts after surgery (think of big differences in weight, gravity and hormonal fluctuations), you can expect a permanent effect of your breast reduction surgery. Regardless of the extent of your breast reduction surgery, you can rest assured that Dr. Fantozzi and his highly-skilled team will make no concessions when it comes to the quality and safety of the procedure. Breast reduction surgery involves light anesthesia and takes about two hours.
