Breast Reduction in Santa Clarita, CA

Not everyone desires larger breasts; in fact, for many they are problematic. A breast reduction performed by Dr. Howard Hu of Valencia Plastic Surgery can make you feel more comfortable physically and mentally.

You may wish to undergo a breast reduction procedure with Santa Clarita plastic surgeon Dr. Hu to alleviate uncomfortable or painful symptoms caused by the excessive weight of your over-developed breasts. Though breast reduction surgery can be performed at nearly any age, Dr. Hu generally recommends postponing any procedure until your breasts are fully developed.

What Is a Breast Reduction?

A breast reduction surgery involves getting rid of excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts. This procedure is done so the individual ends up with smaller breasts that are more proportionate to the rest of the body. Breast reductions are also performed to ease discomfort and pain that many individuals who have large breasts suffer from. A breast reduction is often referred to as a reduction mammoplasty.

Benefits of Breast Reduction

The benefits of breast reduction surgery vary based upon an individual’s reason for having it. Those who are self-conscious about the size of their breasts often report they no longer feel this way after having a reduction mammoplasty. Women who suffer back, neck, or shoulder problems as a result of overly large breasts can notice an improvement in their health.

How Is a Breast Reduction Performed?

The procedure itself is performed according to Dr. Hu’s three-incision method. One incision is made around the areola, another from the bottom of the areola to the crease of the breast, and yet another along the breast crease. Dr. Hu employs this method to reduce physical trauma to the skin, as well as to preserve nipple and breast sensitivity.

After making the three incisions, Dr. Hu will remove excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue from the breasts. He will then reshape them in accordance with your personal goals. To do this, he may also perform liposuction and/or a reduction to the areolas.
