Breast Reduction, plastic surgeons Vancouver, SkinOne
Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that involves reducing the volume and weight of the breasts to alleviate back, neck and shoulder pain. During the procedure, the breasts will also be lifted and reshaped. Having large breasts can cause both physical and emotional pain and discomfort. A breast reduction can provide relief from neck, back, and shoulder pain. Large breasts can also interfere with an active lifestyle and may cause emotional discomfort. Breast reduction surgery aims to create breasts in proportion to body size and frame, lift and shape sagging breasts and lessen the weight of large breasts.

What to expect?

During surgery, under general anesthetic, Dr. Klok will remove the skin and glandular tissue from the breast, while simultaneously repositioning the nipple and remaining gland. All stitches are dissolvable and will disappear within one to two days.

How long does it take to recover?

Most patients can return to work and resume normal activities within two weeks, with no heavy lifting or exercise during this time. The results from a breast reduction are long-lasting and you can expect to feel relief from the pain you had previously felt.
