Breast hypertrophy, or disproportionately large breasts, is a condition suffered by quite a few women. Over time, the added weight of the breasts can cause back, shoulder and neck issues. In addition, a woman’s posture can often suffer. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon offers a solution to these problems with a breast reduction.
A breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a surgical correction that can offer life-changing results. When Dr. Ordon performs the procedure, the patient is under general anesthesia. It is performed on an outpatient basis. The main goal is to remove excess tissue and skin around the breasts by making an incision around the areola. He then extends the incision vertically down to the fold of the breast underneath.
