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.

Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty) Surgery

Before your procedure, Dr. Hovsepian and his highly trained aesthetic team will answer all your questions and make sure you understand your procedure and recovery thoroughly. Safety, privacy, comfort, and excellence in treatment with trusting compassionate care are the benefits of Dr. Hovsepian’s patient experience.

Prior to your procedure you will need to begin fasting 8 hours before coming into the Beverly Hills surgical center, this means you cannot eat or drink anything at all during this period, including chewing gum or drinking water. If you have been instructed by Dr. Hovsepian to take any medications in the morning, this is permitted with a few sips of water.

Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia, meaning you will be completely asleep and feel nothing during surgery. The surgery takes a few hours, although you should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure will focus on multiple areas. The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, but some patients prefer an overnight stay. Out-of-town patients may stay in a near-by hotel or aftercare facility, where a "private duty" nurse is available if required. Afterward, you will return to your home, hotel or aftercare facility conveniently located a short distance from the surgical center.

Breast Reduction FAQs:

Why Is Breast Reduction Necessary?

It is only necessary for women who have naturally huge breasts and are burdened with them, those having growing breasts all of a sudden due to medical anomaly, or those with big breasts that are disproportionate to the whole body figure.

How Does It Feel To Have Huge Breasts?

Having big breasts is a dream for many women, but it can be a burden for some women if their breasts become a source of ridicule, discomfort and imbalance to body figure. The overly big breasts can provide physical strain and can affect the self-confidence of a woman.

What Exactly Is Breast Reduction?

It is a cosmetic surgery that is aimed at reducing and reshaping a pair of overly large breasts. The ultimate and usual aim is to make the breasts proportionate to the woman’s body. To ensure the functional sensitivity and lactational capability of the breasts after the surgery, the cosmetic surgeon has to consider the tissue viability of the nipple-areola complex. The other name for breast reduction is reduction mammoplasty.

Is a Breast Reduction The Same For All Women?

No, as there are no two women with exactly the same body. The surgeon has to note down your relevant body stats and juxtapose those figures with your specific expectations and motivations to the surgery at hand. You can learn more about breast reduction or mammoplasty here.
