A breast reduction is a surgical procedure that reduces the volume and size of the breast to be better aligned with your overall physique.

Having oversized breasts can lead to physical and psychological problems. They can be physically demanding on the neck and back that causes pain and strain. Emotionally, they can make you feel self-conscious and embarrassed. Having a breast reduction can greatly improve your way of life. A reduction mammoplasty procedure has helped countless women regain control. At Azar Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, we are here to be your champion while you’re on your way to a better life. Make room for a friendly conversation with our team to learn more about breast reduction. Or you can give us a call at (805) 373-7073.


Getting breast reduction surgery is an important decision. Some patients may choose to do it for cosmetic reasons because they’ve grown unhappy with their current size. While others are seeking much-needed relief from neck and back problems. Women choosing a surgical procedure are taking a proactive step in transforming their way of life. Breast reduction provides patients with smaller, lighter, and life-changing results. The procedure involves making an incision around the breast tissue. Excess fat cells, breast tissue, and skin are removed from the breast using liposuction or surgical excision. [1] The remaining tissue is redistributed and shaped into a smaller breast profile that is optimized for your body contours. Many of our Westlake village breast reduction patients have noticed a profound difference in their posture, movement, and self-confidence after their surgery.

Breast Reduction Procedure

When you arrive, we’ll get you settled into your very own treatment room where you will be resting comfortably. Dr. Azar has two main methods for breast reduction surgery. Each one comes with its procedure but both are aimed to serve you. Here is what your experience may look like: [3]

Vertical Or “Lollipop”

This method involves an incision made around the areola. It connects with a second incision made vertically from the bottom of the areola to the crease that lies just underneath the breast. Patients with mild to moderate cases usually are candidates for this method.

Inverted-T Or Anchor

Patients who experience considerable sagging skin or ptosis are usually selected for this method. An incision is made around the areola. It connects with another incision made within the crease that forms an inverted “T”. After the incisions are made by Thousand Oaks breast reduction provider, Dr. Azar, he will remove excess tissue, skin, and fat deposits that reduce the overall weight and volume of the breasts. Breast tissue is then redirected so that he can recontour your chest area to better proportions. The entire process should take around four hours to complete.


after your procedure

You may leave the same day after your procedure. Patients may go through some post-op symptoms. Just know that they are only temporary. Some minor swelling and tenderness may be felt in your breasts. You will be supplied a surgical bra following reduction surgery to give your body support and to control swelling. Drains may be placed to remove fluid from the surgical sites. We’ll give you detailed instructions on how to care for them. They will be removed at your follow-up appointment. Following a breast reduction Thousand Oaks patients can resume normal activities within two weeks. You can plan on going back to work within 3-7 days. [4]

Breast Reduction Results

long-lasting results

Patients will immediately feel and see a difference in your breast size. However, they may be obscured by the bruising and swelling. However, full results will start to develop in 3-6 months. [5] As time goes by the breast will adjust by themselves that will give them a natural projection. Scars will start to fade away and flatten during this time as well. When the healing process starts to close, you will notice a smaller breast that allows you to move around swiftly and easier. Your soul will be renewed as you can now enjoy long-lasting results that are fitted for your body.
