Women with breasts that are naturally very large know that bigger isn't always better. Overly large breasts can lead to back pain, shoulder strap grooves and stretching of the skin, not to mention other inconveniences such as difficulty finding a bra that fits or tops that are flattering. Breast reduction can help Louisiana women who are looking for increased comfort and an improved appearance.
Breast reduction can transform both your look and your lifestyle, giving you the ability to comfortably enjoy a wider range of activities.

Women who are unhappy with the size of their breasts, along with women who avoid certain physical activities due to discomfort caused by their overly large breasts, often consider having a breast reduction.
Before surgery, you will sit down with one of our surgeons and discuss your medical history, as well as what you wish to accomplish through surgery. Your doctor will help provide you with an understanding of what your breasts will look like after surgery.
Breast reduction surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia. At The Wall Center, the short scar incision is the only technique we use for breast reductions. For this technique the incision is made around the areola and then straight down to the breast crease. Breast volume is reduced by removing the lateral and inferior tissues, instead of removing tissue from the upper portion of the breast. In some instances, liposuction in Louisiana may also be used to remove fat or a breast lift procedure will be performed in conjunction with the breast reduction.
This more advanced technique, which requires an especially skilled surgeon, offers several advantages over the traditional anchor technique, including:

Breast Incision Type: Short scar with "J" incision
This 21 year old woman with 34 DD breasts complained of neck, back and shoulder pain that was not relieved with conservative measures. She also had significant volume asymmetry which made wearing a swimming suit impossible. She underwent a vertical breast reduction and is now a proportional and symmetrical 34 C. Her clothes fit so much better and she can wear a swimming suit.
This 32 year old woman had neck, back and shoulder pain from her large, pendulous 34DD breasts. I did a vertical breast reduction on her and removed 505 grams from the right breast and 470 grams from the left breast. She had immediate improvement in her pain and is now able to wear the kind of clothes she always wanted to as a proportional 34C cup. This Breast Reduction was performed at our certified Plastic Surgery Center located in Shreveport, Louisiana.
This 38 year old woman had 36 DDD cup breasts causing neck, back and shoulder pain. Due to her very large size, I had to incorporate a horizontal scar under her breasts to remove all of the skin allowing her breasts to rest on her abdomen and lift them up onto her chest area. Now she is proportional in size, yet still very feminine in shape.
