What Is Breast Reduction?
Abnormally large breasts can cause self-confidence issues and overall embarrassment, as well as physical pain in women. At Kansas City Surgical Arts, we help countless women regain their confidence and enjoy the life they want through breast reduction surgery. This cosmetic surgery removes excess fat, tissue, and skin to redefine and reshape the breasts to a more comfortable size. It also reconstructs the size of the nipples and repositions them so they are symmetrical with the new breast size. In most situations, a breast lift can be performed to produce a tighter and younger-looking appearance. To learn more about our breast procedures, schedule a consultation today.

How Is Breast Reduction Performed?
Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient process and is performed while you are under general anesthesia. The timeframe for the surgery is dependent upon many factors, including the complexity of the incision, the overall reduction technique, and finally, the amount of tissue removal needed. The areola and nipple area repositioning is another factor. In most cases, liposuction is necessary for fat and tissue reduction to decrease breast size. At the time of the initial consultation, all of these factors are addressed. Based on the intricacy of the reduction, either an anchor or a vertical incision will be used. The breast tissue will then be removed, and the existing skin and tissue will be pulled tight and secured.
Breast Reduction Reviews
Amazing staff, amazing Dr, and amazing results so far! From consultation to surgery, Dr Hlavacek did incredible. I got my breast augmentation surgery yesterday at 8am and he called me last night at 9pm to check on me. With surgery yesterday, they already look fantastic even with the swelling. To the point my husband said he would have paid double for them 🤣 I can’t wait to see what they look like when completely healed! Thank you all!

Breast Reduction FAQs
Can teenagers get breast reduction surgery?
Generally speaking, it is often possible and appropriate for teenagers to undergo breast reduction surgery, but it is typically recommended after breast development is complete in order to avoid unwanted or unexpected changes over time. The decision is often based on factors such as physical and emotional well-being, and parental consent will be required for minor patients.
What kind of scar will I have after a breast reduction?
The type of breast reduction scar that you can expect depends on the specific surgical technique used. Commonly, breast reduction involves anchor-shaped or lollipop-shaped incisions, resulting in scars around the areola, vertically down the breast, and along the breast crease. Scars typically fade over time and are strategically placed for minimal visibility. Prior to surgery, our surgeons will discuss exactly what type of incision is planned and what resulting scarring you can expect.
Will my breasts get larger again after a breast reduction?
While breasts may change due to factors like weight gain, aging, or pregnancy, a well-performed breast reduction surgery should provide long-lasting results. However, individual experiences vary, and maintaining a stable weight and good overall health can contribute to the longevity of the surgical outcomes.
