Kelowna Breast Reduction

Breast surgery kelowna

A breast reduction procedure, also known as a reduction mammoplasty, is a type of breast surgery to remove excess breast fat and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body.

A breast reduction can:

  • Decrease the size and weight of your breasts
  • Lift and reshape breasts
  • Elevate the nipples
  • Reduce the size of the pigmented areola

When To Consider a Breast Reduction Surgery

Overly large breasts can present a number of significant challenges for women. A breast reduction surgery may help patients improve their quality of life and reduce any associated physical and aesthetic concerns.

If you are experiencing one or more of the following problems, you may want to consider a breast reduction surgery:

  • Neck, back and shoulder pain
  • If one breast is disproportionately larger than the other
  • You have difficulty engaging in certain physical activities (e.g. running, yoga or pilates)
  • You have difficulty finding clothes that fit you properly
  • Rash or irritation underneath the breast
  • You have poor posture from excessive breast weight.
  • If you have heavy breasts with nipples and areolas that point downwards

To best determine whether you are a good candidate for a breast reduction surgery, book a pre-surgical consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons today.

Pros & Cons of a Breast Reduction Surgery

As with any breast surgery procedure, it’s very important to be aware of the benefits and potential risks of a breast reduction surgery.

This will help you make a more informed decision and have a better expectation of your surgical outcome.

BENEFITS RISKS

Your breasts will be in proportion with your body

Inability to breastfeed after a breast reduction surgery

You will feel more comfortable. Any neck, back or shoulder pain will be alleviated with a breast reduction surgery

Loss of feeling in nipples or breasts. This is often temporary but in some women it may become permanent.

You will find it easier to engage in physical activity and exercise

Unevenly positioned nipples or breasts that are not the same size/shape

Your clothes will fit better and you will gain more self-confidence

Risk of infection or excessive bleeding


Liposuction & Breast Reduction Surgery

If your breasts are large but not sagging and if they are primarily fatty tissue, liposuction - instead of a traditional breast reduction - may improve breast size and shape.

However, this body contouring procedure WILL NOT reshape or reduce the skin. For a larger impact on your aesthetic outcome, liposuction can be used in addition to a surgical breast reduction to reduce fat in the underarm region and at the bra line.

One of our qualified plastic surgeons will be able to evaluate your unique body contours and make recommendations to help you achieve a successful aesthetic result.

I wish to thank you for excellent care during my recent surgery for a torn knee meniscus on Oct. 30th. The excellent guidance and care was very evident from the front desk personnel through an including those responsible for pre-op instructions, post-op instructions, anesthesia, and finally Dr. O’Brien’s surgery and follow up discussion. How nice to see a facility staffed with such competent and caring people.
