Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
This 50-year old patient was referred to Dr. Lepore, after suffering for years with what she described as considerable pain caused by her large breasts. She experienced pain in her shoulders, bra strap areas, and upper back; all common problems in women with larger breasts. She came to our office in San Jose for Breast Reduction information. Her breasts were measured in the DDD range, and both she and Dr. Lepore noted the right breast was significantly larger than the left. She decided to proceed with the breast surgery, and was then able to participate in determining the relative size of her “new” breasts, and the size of her areolas.
The surgery was performed without complication. Within 2 weeks, the sutures were removed, and the patient was already noticing the improvement in the look and feel of her body. Several weeks later, she reported that her back and neck pain were greatly reduced, and that she was very pleased with her aesthetic results as well.
