When your breasts are out of proportion from the rest of your body, so much of your life is affected, including how you dress and how you feel about your self-image.

What to Expect During and After Surgery
Our breast reduction procedures are performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. Following surgery, your chest will be bandaged, and you may be sent home in a surgical bra. You will be prescribed pain medication to help keep you comfortable during this initial period.
The amount of time you need to recover from breast reduction surgery will depend on your natural healing rate as well as the extent of surgery performed. You will be able to get up and walk around the same day of surgery, although you should have a trusted adult with you during the first 24 hours.
Most patients feel ready to drive and return to a desk job within one week, after they are no longer taking prescription pain medication. It will likely be three to four weeks before you are able to resume normal exercise.
