The Breasts You Want

Through breast reduction, Dr. Azar makes his patients' breasts smaller, lighter and more proportionate to the rest of the bodies. The procedure entails incisions being made around the areola (the dark circle of skin surrounding the nipple) and below the natural curve of the breast. Excess fat, glandular tissue and skin are removed, and the remaining skin is tightened around the newly contoured breast. Dr. Azar often uses breast lift techniques in conjunction with breast reduction to provide enhanced shaping.

In some cases, breast reduction surgery is considered to be medically necessary reconstructive surgery, so it may be covered by insurance.

Your Recovery & Beyond

Dr. Azar performs breast reduction in a major hospital or surgery center with general anesthetic administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. This outpatient procedure generally lasts 3 hours.

Many women find breast reduction especially rewarding, as their breasts are smaller and lighter right away.
