Breast reduction can also be used to help a woman feel more confident and satisfied with her appearance. Unlike the breast enlargement procedures
performed, breast reduction is used to decrease the size of breasts that are too large or disproportionate to the individual’s body frame. In addition to reducing self-consciousness, breast reduction can also alleviate back pain, improve posture, and make every day activities more comfortable.
Breast reduction is commonly performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. Side effects are temporary and may include discomfort, swelling, bruising, and numbness. Most breast reduction patients can return to work and normal activities in one to two weeks. Your doctor can explain the risks associated with this procedure and answer your questions about scarring.

Male Breast Procedures
Gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts, is a common condition. Fortunately, gynecomastia can often be treated through male breast reduction, a procedure performed to reduce excess breast tissue in men using either liposuction or direct excision methods. It is an excellent option for men who feel self-conscious about their appearance, leaving them with a chest that is flatter and firmer. Typically, male breast reduction is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. Temporary side effects may include bruising, swelling, and numbness, and most patients are able to return to work and normal activities in as little as one week.
