Today, Dr. Weiler discusses the antithesis of breast augmentation: breast reduction surgery.

Breast reduction is a process where Dr. Weiler surgically reduces the size of the breast to a patient’s desired size. Large breasts can cause physical and emotional pain, rashes and skin conditions, as well as social anxiety. Many patients who decide to have a breast reduction surgery find they are not only more comfortable doing day-to-day activities but also lead healthier, more confident lives with more proportionate breasts.

Breast reduction is unique in that Dr. Weiler considers this procedure a medical one as opposed to a cosmetic one, like in breast augmentation, although it does include a lift to keep a natural, cosmetically appealing look. Women as young as 15-16 and as mature as 60 routinely have this procedure done and tend to be the happiest of Dr. Weiler’s patients because of the issues that the surgery rectifies. The procedure can also be used to reverse a breast augmentation that is no longer desired as well. In our patient interview, the patient is having the surgery because of implants that she believes no longer fits her lifestyle.
