Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
This woman in her early 50s came to see Dr. Lepore to find out about breast reduction in San Jose. She was seeking both cosmetic improvement and help with the pain she had been suffering from for years due to the size and weight of her breasts. She described upper back pain, bra strap grooving, as well as neck, upper back, and arm pain, which she says had been present since her teens.
The patient's breasts were in the D-cup range, which were heavy and pendulous on her petite frame. In addition to breast reduction surgery, she was interested in liposuction to reduce some stubborn areas on her inner and outer thighs.
During the patient's surgery in our licensed and accredited outpatient facility, Dr. Lepore reduced the size of her breasts, also correcting the unevenness in their size and shape. He then performed liposuction of the inner and outer thighs.
In some breast reduction cases, medical insurance covers the cost of cases that meet their medical requirements. Our staff has extensive experience helping patients attain insurance coverage for breast reduction. They will be happy to assist you in working with your carrier.
The "after" photos were taken 8 weeks following surgery. Our patient is very pleased with the outcome of her procedures and her new level of comfort.
