Breast Reduction Beverly Hills | Los Angeles
Women with large, sagging breasts often develop neck pain, back pain, improper posture, shoulder grooving, bra strap indentations, severe irritation underneath their breasts and rashes in their breast fold (intertrigo). Furthermore, it can be difficult for women with large breasts to find clothing that fits properly as well as causing difficulty exercising and participating in sports. Lastly, large breasts can make some women feel “top heavy”, overweight and/or self-conscious about their breasts. After breast reduction surgery all of these symptoms typically resolve. Patients are also able to exercise and be more active after the surgery which makes weight loss easier and allows them the ability to perform physical activities that were difficult or impossible prior to the surgery.
Breast Reduction surgery is a procedure that reduces the weight and size of a woman’s breast as well as providing lift and reduction in the size of the areolas. During the surgery, the excess breast skin, fat and tissue are removed and the remaining tissue is shaped into smaller, perkier shaped breasts. Even though a breast reduction is not often considered a cosmetic procedure, Dr Motykie takes great pride in trying to artistically create youthful, symmetric, perky breasts during every breast reduction surgery. A breast reduction surgery greatly improves a woman’s quality of life and the healing process is often said to be almost painless. Although there are almost always scars with breast reduction surgery, Dr Motykie places the incisions in areas that can be hidden by bras and bathing suits tops. In addition, the scars tend to fade to thin white lines over time and there are currently numerous scar prevention modalities available to patients as well as laser scar removal. In some cases, scarless breast reduction can be performed utilizing liposuction to decrease the volume of the breasts. This technique can only be performed in certain circumstances which depend on the position of the nipples on the breast mound and patients personal goals from the surgery. Lastly, if you suffer physical pain, discomfort or other disabilities as a result of oversized breasts, breast reduction may be covered by your medical insurance.

When going into your consultation, it is wise to come with questions written down and have a general understanding of the overall procedure so you can be prepared to learn as much as possible during your visit with Dr Motykie.

You are also encouraged to bring in photographs you may have obtained on your own from magazines or various internet websites which show the desired “look” you would like to achieve from surgery. Dr Motykie has found that looking through these types of photographs as well as reviewing his personal breast augmentation portfolio is much more helpful in determining the true breast size and shape you desire from surgery rather than techniques that employ stuffing bras with various filler materials, trying on misleading sizing implants or undergoing visual imaging techniques.
