Your Breast Reduction

When you visit Columbia Aesthetic Plastic Surgery for your breast reduction consultation with Dr. Chang, you will discover a welcoming environment that fosters an open, honest dialogue about breast reduction, and a plastic surgeon who truly cares about you, your safety, and your satisfaction. And as such, you will also be provided with as much time as you need to have all of your questions answered and all of your concerns addressed. One of the most common questions Dr. Chang receives is whether a patient needs breast reduction or a breast lift. In many cases, both of these breast enhancement procedures are required to create a total breast makeover and achieve the patient's goals.

Because Dr. Chang wants his patients to make informed decisions, he will describe in detail the procedure, also known as "reduction mammaplasty." You will learn everything you need and deserve to know about Columbia, Maryland breast reduction surgery, including how the removal of fat and glandular tissue and the tightening of skin can result in smaller, lighter breasts that are better proportioned to the rest of your body. Also, he will explain how breast size and shape, among other things, helps to determine whether you are a candidate for the traditional "anchor" pattern breast reduction or the preferable "vertical."

Although the short-scar, or "vertical" breast reduction has been popular in Europe for over 20 years, the technique has gained popularity in the U.S. only during the last few years. Dr. Chang performs vertical breast reduction in many of cases, and believes that a short-scar breast reduction can have several advantages, including:

  • Shorter operating times
  • Less scarring
  • More robust blood supply to the skin, and therefore less wound healing problems
  • More full, youthful looking breast shape
  • Longer lasting breast shape with less bottoming out of the breast over time

At your breast reduction consultation at Columbia Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Chang will evaluate whether this technique is best for your particular circumstance.

Hundreds of thousands of women across the U.S. have had breast reduction surgery. Elective or not, surgery is still a big decision, and it's one only you can and should make. After all, it's your life. Breast reduction can help you live it, free of the physical and psychological pain of large, pendulous breasts and free to participate in the activities you enjoy and to wear the clothes that reflect the true you.
