Breast Reduction

Remove fat so that your breasts are more proportionate to your body

Women with large breasts often experience physical discomfort, whether it’s backache or neckache, skin irritation, or difficulty breathing. Kitto Plastic Surgery’s breast reduction procedure helps reshape the breasts by removing excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin. Our patients find that they’re able to lead a healthier, more comfortable life, and enjoy a more beautiful and proportionate appearance.

Best candidates

Breast reduction surgery is ideal for women with oversized breasts who suffer from low self-esteem, and physical or social discomfort. Patients must not be pregnant or breastfeeding while undergoing this procedure. It is also important for patients to understand the risks associated with this procedure and to have realistic expectations in order to be satisfied with surgery results.

Loved my experience here! Dr. Kitto is great and took the time to answer all of the questions I had. Most doctors won’t spend an hour with you one on one but Dr. Kitto spent our entire one hour consultation in the room with me. I left feeling much more at ease about my surgery.

The procedure

The techniques for breast reduction vary, but the most common procedure involves an incision around the nipples. From that area, the incision goes down to the natural curve under the breast. Dr. Kitto will remove the appropriate amount of fat, glandular tissue, and skin, and the incisions will be closed with stitches.

Recovery process

After the procedure, you will likely experience soreness, swelling, and bruising for a few days. It is also normal for your breasts to feel tender and sensitive, and your nipples may feel slightly numb. Pain medication can help alleviate discomfort, although these sensations usually subside on their own. Make sure not to partake in strenuous activities for at least 3-4 weeks to ensure proper healing.

Dr. Kitto is amazing! She is so personable but very professional at the same time! You know that she really cares about her patients and wants to do the Best thing that will help you achieve “the why” you are seeking her care. The office is beautiful and it reflects the quality of work that she does.
Her kind and gentle way that she uses when she treats you helps with any nervousness or anxiousness that you might have about the procedure she is doing. The results speak for themselves- I get compliments all the time of “have you gone on vacation?” or have you had a “nice relaxing time- you look so good”? or just “wow you look Great!”.
