Cumming, GA Patient has Breast Reduction and Correction of Breast Asymmetry*

Procedure Details

This patient in her late 40's came to the office to discuss a Breast Reduction procedure. Not only was she concerned about the size of her breasts, but the asymmetry as well. Preoperatively this patient suffered from daily back, neck and shoulder pain. She was frequently taking over the counter pain medication without relief and was beginning to fear that the amount of medication she was taking would cause stomach damage. The patient also completed over a year of conservative therapy with no results before seeking out a surgical option. Finding undergarments that fit properly was very difficult and even when she found the very expensive, supportive bras she still suffered from deep grooving on her shoulders and rashes underneath her breasts. Preoperatively the patient had apparent asymmetry and was a very full DD-Cup/F-Cup and desired to be a C-cup. Dr. Connors made three incisions - an inframammary incision, a vertical incision and a circumareolar incision - and performed a Breast Reduction procedure. He removed the appropriate amount of breast tissue and used the remaining breast tissue to reshape and lift the patient's breasts. Postoperatively the patient has her desired symmetrical, C-Cup breasts. Since her procedure her back, neck and shoulder pain has subsided. She no longer has difficulty finding undergarments and clothing that fit properly. The results of this surgery have really changed her life!
