Unfortunately, there's not a lot you can do on your own about excessively large breasts. Fortunately, there's a lot Dr. Chaffoo can do in La Jolla with a breast reduction (technically called "reduction mammaplasty"). And, because large breasts can be responsible for both physical and psychological problems, many insurance companies cover breast reduction, calling it a medical necessity. You just might call it a miracle.

Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Chaffoo provides exceptional results and patient care.

  • Breast reduction in San Diego is safe and effective, taking just 2 to 4 hours, during which Dr. Chaffoo removes excess skin and fat. Liposuction for San Diego or La Jolla women might also be employed. Because glandular tissue (tissue involved in producing milk) is also removed, you will want to inform Dr. Chaffoo if you plan to breast-feed. Breast lift is a part of every breast reduction procedure, along with nipple and areola repositioning. After about 2 weeks, you should be back at work and well on your way to smaller, lighter, firmer and more flattering breasts. You can also experience improved self-esteem and a reduction in or even elimination of neck, shoulder and back pain, as well as bra strap grooves.
