Patient Testimonial: Breast Reduction

Our lovely patient lost 102 lbs after bariatric surgery and she is taking back over her life - and we personally think she looks amazing while doing it ! 💪 ❤️ Thank you so much for sharing your story with us! No regrets!

Sometimes even despite weight loss , you may not lose enough weight in your breasts to help relieve neck, back, shoulder pain and with weight loss the appearance of your breasts may change as well prompting you to want to investigate your options!

A breast reduction allows you to decrease ⬇️ the size of your breasts overall while also lifting them 🆙 into a more perky position. This can help to improve aesthetics and also symptoms from large, heavy breasts ✅
