Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
Cosmetic Surgery-Campbell (Breast Reduction)
This woman, in her early 30's, came to see Dr. Lepore because of problems experienced by many women with large breasts. In her case, her triple-D cup breasts on her petite frame, were causing continual back pain, neck pain, grooving on her shoulders caused by the pull of her bra straps, in addition to frequent rashes beneath the folds of her breasts. She was a candidate for Breast Reduction surgery, or Mammaplasty. Very often, Breast Reduction surgery will be covered in a patient's insurance plan. Our staff will work with you in determining whether this is possible in your individual case. Dr. Lepore discussed the surgery with the patient in detail, also noting in her particular case, one breast was significantly larger than the other. During her surgery, 730 grams of tissue were removed from the left breast, and 399 grams on the right. Not only are her breasts reduced to a more comfortable size and weight, they are now more symmetrical. The patient is very pleased, both with the appearance of her breasts, and with the physical improvement she is enjoying.
