If you are one of many women who suffer from back or neck discomfort associated with overly large breasts, breast reduction surgery can help. Breast reduction helps women achieve a breast size proportionate to their body, by removing excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin.

At Specialist Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Beldholm takes great care in deciding which breast reduction technique is best for each patient’s body.

Most women who gain weight get larger breasts. This weight gain can be a result of a poor diet, hormonal imbalance or other medical conditions.

Cathy underwent a hysterectomy procedure in 2012. After the surgery, she gained a lot of weight. This led to a lot of discomfort, to the point that her quality of life suffered.

She had back pains on top of her shoulder pain. She experienced painful bra strap indentations and irritations. She sweated more, which resulted in a lot of rashes.

Aside from these discomforts, Cathy was also unable to exercise because her heavy breasts restricted her movements. This made her gain even more weight.

Looking for a solution, Cathy went to consult Dr. Beldholm, who recommended that she undergo a breast reduction surgery. Although a smaller cup size would have benefit her more, Cathy chose to downsize her breasts to a C cup, since she had had big breasts all her life.

During surgery, Dr. Beldholm was able to extract 760 grams of fat from Cathy’s breasts through liposuction. He also did nipple reduction, in line with her breast reduction surgery.

After the procedure, Cathy became more confident and felt a lot more comfortable. There’s no more backache, shoulder pain and skin irritations. She can now wear whatever clothes she wants, and is very happy now that she can do a wide range of physical exercises.*

Modern media and pop culture are always telling us that the larger the breasts the better. In fact, the media’s portrayal of the ideal woman is probably the biggest factor that leads most women to undergo breast enlargement surgery. But the stereotypical “the bigger the better” idea has a much different effect on women predisposed to abnormally large breasts.

Jenna, for example, was a recent patient of ours here at Specialist Cosmetic Surgery. For over a decade she had been considering undergoing breast reduction. Her heavy breasts had long been making it difficult to maintain her active lifestyle, and chronic neck and bra strap pain were a regular problem. Migraines and back pain was also a common occurrence for her. Tired of simply bearing the pain, Jenna finally decided to make an appointment with Dr. Beldholm.

In their one-on-one consultation, Jenna described her physical ailments to Dr. Beldholm and communicated exactly what she was expecting from the procedure. Due to the severity of her discomforts, Jenna and Dr. Beldholm decided it would be best to reduce Jenna’s current E cup bust to a C cup size.

During surgery, Dr. Beldholm successfully removed 390g of tissue from Jenna’s right breast and 324g of tissue from the left, using the Superior Pedicle technique, which catered best to Jenna’s specific case. Dr. Beldholm also used liposuction to remove over 100 ml of fat from both of Jenna’s breasts.

Initially, Jenna felt her breasts were a bit too firm, as is sometimes the case after breast reduction surgery. This side effect however settles within the first two months after the procedure. Once the firmness passed Jenna was quite satisfied with the overall feel of her new bust.

Four months after the operation and Jenna is extremely pleased with the results. As the video shows, Jenna’s bust went from a cumbersome E cup, down to a much more manageable large C to small D cup. Now Jenna has gotten back to running and embracing her active lifestyle without all the discomfort.*

Big breasts might be appealing for women who struggle with having a small chest. However, for women who already have them, it’s actually a different story.

Liza used to have DD cup breasts. After giving birth to her children, their size went up to a G cup. This increase in size made Liza feel very uncomfortable, especially when it came to trying to fit into clothes.

Because of this concern, Liza decided to consult Dr. Beldholm to inquire about breast reduction. She wanted to reduce her breast size from a G cup to a C or D cup. Although she was uncertain about the procedure, she was sure about what kind of breasts she wanted to get from the surgery. She wanted to have smaller, more lifted breasts.

The operation went successfully and 567g of tissue was removed from her left breast. A total of 763g of tissue was removed from the right. Dr. Beldholm was able to remove 225ml of fat from both breasts using liposuction. Liza stayed overnight in hospital, and had her drains taken out the next day.

As a result of the surgery, she is now able to happily wear a C to a D cup bra.*

Breast Reduction

Seventeen years ago, Terry underwent breast reduction with another plastic surgeon. Since then, however, her chest has continued to increase in size and sag. Her DD-cup breasts were causing her pain, specifically backache and discomfort from her bra strap.

To alleviate this pain, Terry scheduled a consultation with Dr. Beldholm for another breast reduction surgery. Breast reduction is done by removing some of the tissue and skin from the breasts to reshape and reduce their size. During her consultation, Terry indicated that she wanted her breasts to be as small as possible.

In Dr. Beldholm’s experience, a second breast reduction is a very difficult procedure. In standard cases, his preferred technique results in minimal scarring with either a medial or superior pedicle. The outcomes of these procedures include even breasts that are less likely to sag over time. In Terry’s case, an inferior pedicle had already been done, so Dr. Beldholm was restricted to use a different technique.

Post-surgery, Terry now has B to C-cup sized breasts (depending on the bra), and is extremely happy with Dr. Beldholm’s work. Much of her physical pain has been relieved, and she can go about her day comfortably.*

Undergoing cosmetic surgery is not an easy decision to make. For Jennica, it took around 20 years before she was able to make up her mind.

Prior to her breast reduction surgery, Jennica had issues with her breasts being heavy. Aside from weight issues, her left breast was also 2 cup sizes bigger than the right.

On top of these concerns, she was also suffering from neck and back pain, due to her large breasts. They even caused uncomfortable rashes to develop around the area.

Upon consultation, Jennica expressed her desire of making her breasts as small as possible, preferably an A or a B cup. However, based on his expertise, Dr. Beldholm suggested otherwise, as these sizes would be too small for her. After a detailed discussion, Jennica got C cup breasts.

Medial pedicle was used for the procedure, with both breasts receiving wise pattern skin excision. 383g of tissues was removed from her right breast, while 666g was removed from the left side. A total of 200ml of fat was suctioned from each of her breasts.

Drains were left in place overnight, and the surgery turned out to be a success.
