Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD

Palo Alto Breast Reduction

Women frequently suffer the difficulties associated with large breasts for years, before seeking medical help. This patient is approaching 50 years old. For decades, symptoms such as neck and shoulder pain, bra strap grooving on her shoulders, and rashes underneath her breasts, had been part of her life.

After losing a significant amount of weight, she decided to visit Dr. Lepore in our San Jose Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery office, to learn what her options might be. Despite the weight loss, her breasts were still in the DD-cup range, with the left breast somewhat larger than the right. After discussing the various options, she decided to proceed with Breast Reduction surgery.  During the procedure, Dr. Lepore carefully removed tissue and fat. The amounts removed from each breast differed, to produce a symmetrical result. 

The patient was counseled on post-surgical care, and healed quickly. She is very pleased with her results, both aesthetically, and for the improvement in her overall physical well-being.
