Overly large breasts can make your body look out of proportion, and additionally can have physical consequences, placing unnecessary stress on your neck, shoulders, and back. If you are uncomfortable or self-conscious with your naturally large breast size, Dr. Burke may recommend a Breast Reduction, also known as Reduction Mammaplasty. Breast reduction surgically reduces breast volume and reshapes the size of your breasts to bring better proportion to your body and improve body image.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY
Using the most current techniques, Dr. Burke will make small incisions around the nipple and areola, as well as a vertical incision from the areola to the breast crease. An additional small incision, hidden in the breast crease, may also be necessary. The small, resulting scars from the procedure will be inconspicuous.
A breast reduction is performed under general anesthesia and may be an outpatient procedure or, in some cases, an overnight stay may be recommended.

Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Burke creates exceptional results by combining the skill of an accomplished plastic surgeon with empathy and compassion.
BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY RECOVERY
Recovery depends on the extent of your breast reduction. You can return to light activities within a day or two, and full activities within 2-3 weeks.
Results are usually long term; however, changes in weight, pregnancy, and natural aging may alter the shape of your breasts after a breast reduction.
