This 57-year-old woman was bothered by her large breasts. At a size 40 D, her breasts were heavy and bothersome. Feeling that it was time to take action, she decided to contact Dr. Chaffoo to discuss her options for plastic surgery in La Jolla.

When she came in for her consultation, Dr. Chaffoo explained how breast reduction surgery could help take the weight off of her neck and shoulders, making it easier for her to enjoy more activities. Together, they discussed the details of her surgery; she explained that she would like to be a C cup. To meet her concerns, Dr. Chaffoo would remove excess skin, tissue and fat during surgery to reduce her breasts to a more manageable size. Using an incision that traces around the areolas – the skin around the nipple – and down the breast would allow him to remove enough tissue while producing scars that would become hardly noticeable with time.

When her La Jolla breast reduction was finished, she was very pleased with the results. At a 38 C, she was exactly the size she wanted to be and her breasts were smaller, but still very feminine. Feeling almost immediate relief from the weight of her breasts, she was very glad she had the procedure done.
