Breast Reduction

Breast ReductionLarge breasts often cause considerable physical and mental discomfort, and even harm, to the women or teenagers who have them. The size and weight of large breasts can result in self-consciousness, improper posture, pain in the back and neck, chaffing and rashes under the breasts, breathing problems, and skeletal deformities.

Breast reduction surgery, performed by Dr. M. Zakir Sabry, is usually done to provide physical relief from these symptoms, and also to improve the shape, size, and symmetry of the breasts. Fat and glandular tissue is removed as well as excess skin to produce smaller, lighter breasts that are in a healthier proportion to the rest of the body. Breast reduction is performed under general anesthesia. It is a three to four-hour procedure. An overnight stay in the hospital is usually not required.

Best Candidates for Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is an excellent option for women with large breasts who either experience neck, back and shoulder pain while performing daily activities or desire a reduction in size to bring more symmetry and balance to their bodies.

Ideally, breast reduction is best suited for:

  • Patients with very large breasts who require physical relief,
  • Patients with one breast significantly larger than the other,
  • Patients with indentations in their shoulders from tight bra straps,
  • Patients who are self-conscious or dissatisfied with their oversized breasts.

Patients looking to undergo the procedure should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations. Patients who recently underwent surgery are also advised to wait until they are completely recovered.

Unhealthy habits like excessive drinking or smoking could have a detrimental effect on the results of the procedure. Quitting these habits prior to breast reduction will help patients avoid surgical complications.

Your Consultation

Patients who want to reduce the size and weight of their breasts with breast reduction will first need to schedule a consultation. This will provide patients with the information they need regarding the steps involved in the procedure.

During the consultation, patients will be asked about their health, medical history, and expectations. This will include all past procedures, pre-existing conditions, medications and supplements, and allergies. Learning this information will help Dr. Sabry avoid complications during surgery.

Dr. Sabry will go over all the details of the procedure, including preparation, cost, and recovery. Patients can take this opportunity to ask questions in order to better understand the procedure.

Once the patient fully understands the procedure and a surgical plan has been created, the breast reduction procedure will be scheduled.

Typical Results You Can Expect after Breast Reduction Surgery

  • Very natural and great looking appearance
  • Fuller and more beautiful breast size and shape
  • Softness and natural perk to the breast
  • Much better proportion and fit to clothing

Breast Reduction Before & After
Breast Reduction Before & After

Your Breast Reduction Procedure

The type of surgical approach depends largely on the breast size.   The most common type is the Inferior Pedicle Reduction Mammaplasty whereby an anchor-shaped incision is made from the new location of the nipple down to and around the crease beneath the breast. After preserving the nipple on a breast mound that is inferiorly based (from the breast crease up) Dr. Sabry removes excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin. He will then relocate the nipple and areola, and reshape the breast. Liposuction may be needed to remove excess fat from the axillary (armpit) area. This type of (Traditional) reduction results in an inverted T-scar.

Selected patients may be candidates for a “short scar” reduction or vertical reduction mammaplasty where reduction is performed with a scar around the areola and a vertical scar. Dr. Sabry will discuss all options at length with you and will tailor the surgery to best suit your unique physique and desired outcome.

Drainage tubes are used and may be removed on the first postoperative day. Dr. Sabry uses light bandages and recommends using a sports brassier for the first 2 weeks after surgery. All stitches used are dissolvable and do not require removal. Steri strips applied to incisions may be removed after 1 week.

Recovery from Breast Reduction Surgery

  • For several weeks following the breast reduction, a post-surgical bra is usually worn.
  • Most discomfort associated with breast surgery can be controlled with oral medication.
  • Antibiotics may be prescribed and are not needed beyond the first 24 hours.
  • Most women experience some degree of swelling bruising and tenderness. These symptoms should subside in a short time.
  • Dr. Sabry will advise you on a proper schedule for returning to your normal activities. Most patients are back to work within the first two weeks.


Risks are rare and usually minor but may include bleeding, infection, reaction to the anesthesia, slightly mismatched breasts or unevenly positioned nipples, and rarely permanent loss of feeling in the nipple or breast. Occasionally, a small area of skin loss may be seen at the T-junction in very large reductions.

Pregnancy and Nursing after Breast Reduction Surgery

If you are considering having children at some point in the future, you should discuss this with Dr. Sabry during your consultation. The ability to nurse after you have had the size of your breasts reduced is unpredictable and may be affected.

Patients who are pregnant or have recently had a baby that is still breastfeeding are not advised to get a breast reduction. The amount of time that patients will have to wait following pregnancy can be discussed during the consultation.

Breast Reduction Surgery and Breast Cancer

The risk of developing breast cancer seems to remain unchanged following a breast reduction as does Dr. Sabry’s recommendation for cancer screenings. The self-breast examination should be performed monthly. A new baseline mammogram should be performed one year after your surgery. Dr. Sabry will make further recommendations during your consultation

How Much Does Breast Reduction Cost?

MOST BREAST REDUCTIONS ARE COVERED BY PRIVATE INSURANCE IF THE SYMPTOMS ARE A DIRECT RESULT OF ENLARGED BREASTS. Relatively smaller breasts or breasts with just loose skin may require more of a lift than a reduction and may not be covered by insurance, the cost of such surgeries varies from patient to patient and depends on the individual needs and desires of each person. Factors that determine the cost are the size of the current size of the breasts, the desired reduction in size, and the overall complexity involved to create the desired look. In order to help our patients receive the best care possible at a price they can afford, we offer financing options through Green Sky

Say goodbye to dark circles, say hello to under eye filler💉 ...

⭐️ The goal of an explant surgery, or breast implant removal surgery, is to remove breast implants from breast augmentation or breast reconstruction patients.
⭐️ During surgery, Dr. Sabry will routinely move the entire capsule which is made of scar tissue and any leaked silicone material in its entirety.
⭐️ In the process, Dr. Sabry will reshape the breast to its most natural form. If the breast is too small after removing the implant, he may also add fat grafting to achieve a fuller breast. This is a complex surgery and he will explore every
option to make sure that you are well informed and that you can achieve the best outcome possible.
