A breast reduction is the removal of excess breast tissue that can be contributing to increased pain, improper posture, breathing problems, skeletal deformities, or low self-esteem.
In many instances, this procedure can be covered by insurance. During the 2-4 hour procedure, fat and glandular tissue is removed and the skin is tightened to form smaller and lighter breasts that are in healthier proportions to the rest of the body.
Recovery time is typically 2-6 weeks.
If you feel as though you might benefit from a breast reduction, call to schedule an appointment with Dr. David Boudreault at our convenient Palo Alto location.
