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.

Breast Reduction In San Diego

Triple board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Chaffoo has the experience and the expertise to not only help you reduce the size of your breasts, but also improve their shape. At your complimentary consultation, he will share with you the options for producing a more proportional appearance. He will also discuss in detail what to expect with your breast reduction including:

  • Whether a mammogram or other work-up will be necessary prior to your breast reduction
  • Surgical technique specific to your anatomy
  • Both the size and location of incisions
  • Recovery
  • Risks

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 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 breastfeed. Breast lift is also a part of breast reduction procedures, along with nipple and areola repositioning.

Patient experiences vary after breast reduction. After about 2 weeks, you will likely be back at work and well on your way to smaller, lighter, firmer and more flattering breasts. You may also experience improved self-esteem and a decrease in or even elimination of neck, shoulder and back pain, as well as bra strap grooves.
