Are you uncomfortable with your breast size? Does the weight cause back or shoulder pain? Do you feel self-conscious in form-fitting clothing? A Breast Reduction Miami, or Reduction Mammaplasty, may be the solution to your problems.
Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with body size, and may alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.
The weight of excess breast tissue may be impairing your ability to lead an active life. The emotional discomfort and self-consciousness often associated with having large pendulous breasts is as important an issue for many women as is the physical discomfort and pain.
If you are like many other women with large breasts, you are thinking about undergoing breast reduction to seek relief from physical symptoms caused by the excessive weight of large breasts. Breast reduction surgery can solve many of these problems as well as make the breasts smaller and firmer. After the surgery, your breasts will be more proportional to the rest of the body.
Am I a candidate for Breast Reduction Miami surgery?
If you have any of the following, you are likely a candidate for this procedure:
- Breasts that are excessively large in proportion to your body frame
- Back, neck or shoulder pain caused by the weight of your breasts
- Skin irritations beneath your breasts
- Indentations in your shoulders caused by tight and straining bra straps
- Heavy pendulous breasts with nipples and areolas that point downward
What is involved in the breast reduction procedure?
The breast reduction procedure requires three incisions. One incision is made around the areola, another runs vertically from the areola to the bottom crease of the breast, and the third incision follows the natural curve of the breast crease. After the incisions are made and the excessive skin and breast tissue is removed, the nipple and the areola are shifted to a higher position. The areola is reduced in size and the skin is then placed together to reshape the breast.
Liposuction may be used at the same time to improve the contour of the shape under the arm.
Unless you gain or lose a significant amount of weight or become pregnant, your breast size should remain fairly constant. After breast reduction surgery, depending on the physical requirements of your job, it is often possible to return to work within a couple of weeks.

Will insurance cover my breast reduction?
Your insurance coverage may include breast reduction surgery. Factors which may be considered when determining your eligibility for coverage include physical symptoms and discomfort, and the amount of breast tissue to be removed.
In many cases, a letter of predetermination may be required by your insurance company before surgery. Our knowledgeable staff are experienced in working with many major insurance carriers to successfully get breast reductions authorized.
