Breast Reduction

Providing reduction mammoplasty to the Fox Valley

Some women with large breasts experience more than dissatisfaction with body image – they also experience physical pain and discomfort. If you have large breasts that limit your physical activity and cause pain, breast reduction may be right for you.

Is A Breast Reduction Right For Me?

Breast reduction may be right for you if:

  • You’re at relatively normal, stable weight
  • Your breast development is complete
  • You don’t have a life-threatening illness or medical condition that can impair healing
  • You don’t smoke
  • You have a positive outlook and specific goals for improving your physical symptoms, breast size and shape

Because significant amounts of breast tissue are removed, breast reduction may impair the ability to breastfeed.

What Results Should I Expect Right After My Breast Reduction?

  • Once your procedure is complete, dressing or bandages will be applied to your incisions.
  • A small, thin drain tube may also be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood that may collect.
  • Initial healing will include swelling and discomfort at the incision sites.
  • Discomfort is common and can be controlled with medication.
  • A support bra may be recommended for the first few weeks.
  • It is important to keep the incision sites clean.
  • You will be instructed to start light walking as soon as possible to minimize the potential for blood clots and other complications.
  • Any sutures will be removed within 10 days following surgery. You may be ready to return to work and more normal activity at this time, as long as you do not engage in any heavy lifting or vigorous exercise.
  • Healing will continue for several weeks as swelling dissipates and breast shape and position settles.
  • Continue to follow your surgeon’s instructions and attend follow-up visits as scheduled.

What Results Should I Expect Over Time?

  • The final results of your breast reduction will appear over the next few months as breast shape and position continue to settle.
  • Incision lines are permanent scars, but they will improve over time and can be hidden under normal swimsuits.
  • Your new breast size should free you from the pain and physical limitations experienced prior to breast reduction.
  • Your better-proportioned figure will likely enhance your self-image and boost your self-confidence.
  • Breast reduction is considered permanent, although your breasts may continue to change due to weight fluctuations, aging and gravity over time.

Just wanted to say thank you to Dr. Van Ye and ALL of the staff at your office for recognizing breast cancer survivors and doing something so nice for us during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I had a silk peel and it was wonderful as well as all of the people in the office! You are all very kind and helpful!
