Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, surgically reduces and reshapes the size of overly large breasts. The physical strain and self-consciousness resulting from a large breast size can create discomfort, and even influence your sense of wellbeing.
Planning Your Procedure
No two patients' goals and bodies are alike, so in each consultation, Raffi Hovsepian, M.D., will individualize his detailed technical assessment with a thorough, personal discussion of your expectations and motivations. He firmly believes an individual approach yields the best results and will work with you to plan a healthy and successful procedure outcome.
Dr. Hovsepian’s patients benefit from his expertise in a wide array of reduction techniques. His most popular approach, the short-scar reduction, can accurately reshape a wide range of breast sizes with a maximum of surgical accuracy while limiting the incisions associated with breast reductions.
Patients can choose from surgical options including:
- Incision Type: This decision largely depends on the current size and shape of your breasts, as well as the extent of reduction you desire. Dr. Hovsepian will help you choose an approach that offers the best results for your physique.
- Combination Approaches: Often, a greater amount of breast tissue will cause large breasts to sag sooner and more severely, especially after weight fluctuations. Dr. Hovsepian is well known for his natural-looking results combining breast reduction with a breast lift procedure.
Dr. Raffi Hovsepian implements these advanced techniques to reduce necessary breast volume while enhancing breast shape and minimizing unsightly breast incisions.
