Do You Have Constant Neck, Back, And Shoulder Pain As a Result Of Your Breasts?
Breast reduction is a surgical solution that can help you feel at home in your own body again. The ultimate goal of a breast reduction is to reduce breast size so that the patient experiences a significant relief in neck, back, and shoulder pain. Breast reduction can help make patients feel like they can live life again without constantly being uncomfortable or in pain while exercising or even sleeping.
How Does Breast Reduction Work?
Breast reduction is performed under general anesthesia; during the procedure, your plastic surgeon will make incisions along the breasts. These incisions allow the plastic surgeon to access the breast tissue. At this point, the plastic surgeon will remove breast tissue and reshape what remains into a smaller, more uplifted, breast. Excess skin is removed to help complement the new shape. Dr. Cristina Keusch uses a short scar technique that results in a lollipop scar in the central breast, avoiding the long anchor scar in other techniques. The entire procedure takes two to three hours to perform with excellent results, with many patients feeling a significant improvement in neck and back pain almost immediately after the surgery.
Who Is a Good Candidate For Breast Reduction?
You’re a good candidate for breast reduction if you want to reduce the size of your breasts because you’re in pain or you feel like you’re physically limited by having large breasts. All patients should be nonsmokers with realistic expectations for their procedure.

What Results Will I See?*
Most patients can see initial results immediately after surgery, as your breasts may appear smaller and your back, neck, and shoulder pain may be completely gone.
Some swelling may continue to be present for a few months after surgery, with final results visible around the six-month mark.
What is the Recovery Like?*
You’ll do the brunt of your recovering for the first week after the surgery when you’ll be encouraged to rest and recuperate. During this time, you should wear compression garments to help ease post-op swelling and bruising. You may be cleared to return to work about one to two weeks after the surgery, depending on the type of job you perform. Patients can resume strenuous physical activity about six to eight weeks after the surgery.
