Beverly Hills Breast Reduction
Get Results with a Skilled Beverly Hills Breast Surgeon
If you have disproportionately large breasts, it is likely that you are experiencing physical and psychological side effects. You may feel very self-conscious of your body and withdraw from social situations to avoid unwanted attention. Your breasts may put a strain on the rest of the body, causing back, neck or shoulder pain. Many women with large breasts may also find it difficult to dress and some may try to conceal them under baggy, shapeless clothing. Physical activity and exercise can also be problematic. Your breasts may put limitations on your life that you don’t even realize.
The good news is, you do not have to suffer the side effects of oversized breasts any longer. Breast reduction surgery with the Simply Breasts team can help. Our Beverly Hills breast surgeons have helped many women enjoy a more attractive bust line and a better quality of life.* We urge you to familiarize yourself with the procedure by browsing our FAQs.

When Breast Reduction Becomes Necessary
There are several potential reasons why you have oversized breasts. It could be genetics, or perhaps your breasts grew due to hormone fluctuation during pregnancy, breastfeeding or weight gain. Whatever the cause, our breast reduction can bring your breasts into better proportion with the rest of your frame.
- It can also provide significant relief from the following symptoms:
- Pain in the back, neck, and shoulders
- Trouble breathing
- Indentations or grooves in your shoulders from your bra straps
- Difficulty finding blouses that fit properly
- Low self-esteem, embarrassment or self-conscious feelings
- Poor posture
- Limited range of motion or physical activity
- Skin irritation in the breast crease
Aesthetically, breast reduction can provide the transformation you desire. Your breasts will look proportional with the rest of your body and as a result, you will feel more confident and pleased with your appearance.*
In many cases, breast reduction surgery is also deemed “medically necessary” for the health and comfort of the patient and is, therefore, eligible for health insurance coverage. You may be entitled to partial or full insurance coverage. Please check with your insurer to verify benefits.

Details of the Procedure
Our breast reduction is performed on an outpatient basis at our accredited surgery center. Anesthesia will be administered for your complete comfort. The procedure takes one to three hours, depending on the amount of correction needed.
The incision pattern is based on the size of your breasts, the degree of breast sagging, and the location of your nipple-areola complex. Generally, incisions are made in an anchor shape around the border of the areola, vertically down to the breast crease and along the breast crease.
- Through the incision, our surgeons will remove excess tissue, fat, and skin to bring the breasts into better proportion with the rest of the body.
- The areolas and nipples will be shifted to a higher position on the breast mound and the areolas may be reduced in size if dictated by your treatment plan.
- After making the necessary surgical modifications, our surgeons will close the incisions with sutures, dress the incisions and place a supportive bra around the breasts.
What happens during a breast reduction surgery?
Sometimes, a breast reduction alone is not enough to provide the desired results. If your oversized breasts sag and you have downward-pointing nipples, breast reduction and breast lift can be combined to improve the breast size, shape, and position simultaneously. This option will be discussed with you during your consultation.
Recovering from Breast Reduction
You will receive comprehensive instructions for breast reduction recovery. These guidelines cover how to care for your breasts, the medications you can take, and when to return to our office for follow-up. We are always available to answer questions or address your concerns.
The breasts will be sore, swollen, and bruised following your Beverly Hills breast reduction surgery. These side effects, however, will subside with time. If you experience any discomfort during your recovery, we can prescribe oral pain medication. The support bra will help your tissues conform to their new contours and should be worn 24 hours a day for about a month.
It is important that you avoid any bending, lifting or straining motion for several weeks as your body recovers. Some vigorous movements could cause an unwanted complication. Refrain from lifting your arms above your chest while your breasts heal.
We will meet with you several times to follow up on your healing progress, remove sutures and answer your questions. We will also advise when it is safe for you to return to work, school, exercise, and other activities.
