Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
A woman in her early 30s, who has been troubled for many years by the physical effects of overly large breasts. Her double to triple-D size breasts had been contributing to ongoing shoulder and upper back pain, and causing painful grooves in the 'bra strap' area of her shoulders. The symptoms were affecting her active lifestyle in many ways, to the point that she needed pain medication frequently, and would often resort to masking her appearance with extra layers of clothing or undergarments.
She decided to undergo Breast Reduction surgery. During the procedure in our accredited San Jose surgical facility, close to 400 grams of tissue was removed from each breast, slightly differing amounts to address some asymmetry. The breasts were tailored, shaped and lifted. Our patient is very pleased with the outcome of her surgery, and her new sense of comfort.
