Breast Reduction

Although many of our patients from the northeast Ohio region, including Cleveland, Mayfield Heights, and surrounding areas, request breast augmentation with breast implants or a breast lift, many other patients we see are burdened by oversized breasts. In addition to drawing unwanted attention, this condition can detract from an active lifestyle and contribute to back and neck problems, as well as rashes under the breast fold. By making the breasts more proportionate, breast reduction surgery can allow you to regain your confidence and the freedom to do the things you love. A breast reduction can be performed as an out-patient procedure under general anesthesia. The procedure involves an incision made around the areola and down the underside of the breast, ultimately forming an anchor shape. Excess fat, tissue, and skin will be removed, and the nipples repositioned to a higher location. The entire breast reduction procedure typically takes about three to four hours to complete.

Following breast reduction, patients are normally able to return to work in about a week. More demanding activities such as exercising may be resumed gradually after two or three weeks.

Dr. Jason Leedy also performs male breast reduction to treat gynecomastia, among many other plastic surgery options available for men.

Your Consultation for Breast Reduction Surgery

At the time of your consultation Dr. Leedy will review your medical history and discuss your desires and expectations. He will outline a plan to help accomplish your goals in the safest possible manner. If applicable, Dr. Leedy will provide 3D imaging to help simulate the results that are possible. You will have time to have all your questions answered. If you so desire we can arrange for a previous patient to talk to you about their experience. We approach the consultation as an opportunity to educate a patient about a procedure and you will never feel pressured or rushed to make a decision about what is right for you. All patients are provided the opportunity to return for further discussions about their procedure at no additional charge and if you decide to go forward there is always an additional consultation prior to the surgery. Educated patients are happy patients and your happiness is our only goal.
