Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
This patient is a 38 year old woman who was interested in having a Breast Reduction in San jose, Ca. . She complained of ongoing back pain caused by the size and weight of her large breasts, or macromastia.. She had been wearing a bra with an approximate cup size of DDD to E.
After fully discussing all of the risks, benefits, and details. the patient decided to go ahead with surgery. In our San Jose surgical suite, she underwent a bilateral breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, in which we removed approximately 1000 grams, or about 2.2 pounds, from each breast. In terms of bra size, the patient is now wearing a D to DD, which is what she requested.
This procedure, to reduce neck, shoulder, back, or bra strap pain, is often covered by insurance plans/health plans, and our office will assist the patient in getting insurance authorization.
Following surgery and a short recovery, the patient loved her new look, and felt relief from her previous back, shoulder and neck pain.
