For our patients in Beverly Hills, breast reduction surgery (reduction mammaplasty) can be a life-changing procedure that corrects the pain or discomfort of oversized breasts. This condition (breast hypertrophy) often makes it difficult to move or exercise freely.
If your breasts are keeping you from doing the things you love to do, schedule a consultation for breast reduction surgery in Beverly Hills at the Plastic Surgery Institute. Our doctors are world-renowned for their meticulous attention to detail and natural-looking results. They will help you get the freedom to do what you want to do — and look great doing it!
Breast reduction surgery corrects the negative effects of breast hypertrophy, regardless of gender. During a breast reduction surgery, the trained surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Institute remove the excess fat and tissue from the breasts to achieve a size more proportional to your frame.
Breast hypertrophy is a condition where the breasts overdevelop to a point of discomfort. With the size of their bust being so large, many patients have mobility issues like back, shoulder, and neck pain. Large busted people experience many other health problems that interfere with their life. They often find it quite difficult to exercise, which can exacerbate other serious health conditions. Rashes appear often, as moisture gets trapped in the breast folds.
Fungal, viral, or other bacterial skin infections are also common. Medical scientists have also linked migraines and severe tension headaches to overly large breasts due to the strain they incur. In addition, breast hypertrophy can also lead to a number of emotional and well-being issues. Patients suffering from larger breasts often feel self conscious, embarrassed, and may face a great deal of social anxiety. This condition also affects sleep patterns as well, creating a domino effect in terms of emotional and mental well-being. Without sleep to deal with daily life compacted with anxiety (and maybe some other emotional and mental disturbances) and slowed cognitive function, this creates a lower quality of life.
Breast hypertrophy is far more common than many would expect. It is not shameful or embarrassing. If the condition is affecting life in a negative way, it deserves to be addressed. If you feel like your breasts are too large, painful, embarrassing, or in the way, you may be a candidate for breast reduction surgery.
This is true for all genders. Male-bodied people also experience breast hypertrophy, known as gynecomastia. In male-bodied patients, gynecomastia is often caused by a hormonal imbalance that can be temporary or permanent. Breast reduction surgery can often eliminate or reduce the physical impacts of this imbalance.
While the skilled surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Institute will do everything possible to retain mammary function, patients who plan to nurse or become pregnant should share this information prior to breast reduction surgery.
Mammary function is not guaranteed after breast reduction surgery. At the Plastic Surgery Institute, our doctors recommend that patients who plan to become pregnant or breastfeed in the future postpone breast reduction until after they are through nursing.
At The Plastic Surgery Institute in Beverly Hills, breast reduction surgery begins with a consultation with one of our board certified plastic surgeons. Our doctors will want to know about your health and medical history, but also about what you want from your procedure.
This will help them guide you to making the best decisions for your care and results. Your doctor will outline the procedures for preparation and recovery in detail. You will have all the info you need to be in the best possible health going into surgery. This will help you get the best results possible.
The Doctors at the Plastic Surgery Institute love what they do. If you want the highest quality of care from industry leaders who are as approachable as they are professional, you will find a perfect partner for your procedure at the Plastic Surgery Institute in Beverly Hills.

Professional. Comfortable. Kind. Compassionate. Trustworthy. 100% proven commitment to his clients. I've never known of a better doctor who could make vast changes to my face and neck that made me look younger and feel fabulous, and yet you would never have known I've had a facelift.
During the procedure, the surgeon will remove skin, fat, and breast tissue, reshaping the breast to a more manageable size. The areolas will remain connected to the mammary glands as the surgeon carefully repositions them in an effort to retain function.
Your surgeon will then reposition the remaining breast tissue carefully and then reshape the breast before closing the incisions. If you have elected to have a minimally invasive form of breast reduction surgery via liposuction, then fat from the breast tissue will be removed through a small incision via a cannula (a small suction tube). This option greatly reduces recovery times, but also offers less dramatic results.
Your specific recovery times will depend on the exact procedure you selected with your doctor. For most breast reduction surgeries, patients return home within a few hours after surgery.
Due to the surgery, patients cannot drive and should have someone to help transport them home. Patients will need help and for at least the first 24 hours following surgery, so they should try to find a friend or loved one who can be a caretaker and help them with various tasks like preparing food. Your surgeon will provide you with complete aftercare instructions to maximize the effectiveness of your recovery and minimize the recovery time. Most patients find they can return to work within two to three weeks of their surgeries. Full recovery usually takes about six weeks.
Your final results will not be immediately apparent after surgery. This is due to swelling, and it is normal. Once your swelling goes down, you will notice a gradual reduction in your breast size.
You will likely be given compression garments by your doctors to wear to help your breasts adjust and promote proper healing. You should expect to see final results within 4-6 months of your surgery. Breast recovery has a 90% or above success rate, with the vast majority of patients saying they would recommend the process to others.
