Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
After many years of discomfort and pain, this 50 year old patient has made the decision to undergo Breast Reduction surgery. A very petite woman, she had DDD size, heavy, pendulous breasts, with significant asymmetry. She had obvious grooving in the bra strap area, had frequent rashes beneath her breasts, and complained of shoulder and back pain.
In many breast reduction cases, such as this one, we work with the patient's insurance carrier to determine what may be covered. During her surgery, differing amounts of tissue were remove from each breast, to address the asymmetry. Her breasts were then lifted, and the nipples placed in a new position.
Our patient is seen a little over 3 months following her reduction. She is very pleased with her outcome.
