This 43-year-old woman was literally in pain over her larger breasts. She suffered from regular back, neck and shoulder pain. Weighting only 136 pounds at 5’7″ and wearing a 36DD, she wanted to relieve her aching body and began searching for an experienced surgeon who performed breast reduction in Los Angeles. She came to Marina Plastic Surgery Associates hopeful to find out which method would be best to alleviate her pain.
After examining her breasts, her surgeon recommended that she have not only a bilateral breast reduction, but a breast lift and Laser Bra surgery. The reduction, or a mammaplasty, removed excess breast fat to reduce the size of her breasts and the breast lift restored her breasts to a higher place on her chest. As a capstone to her procedure, the surgeon used a laser to specially prepare a flap of skin, creating an internal “bra” for added support.
After her procedure, this patient was very happy that her breasts are now a comfortable 36C, a much more manageable size. As can be seen in the “after” photos, there is some scarring, but these scars should fade with time. Her breasts appear much more youthful and should be far more comfortable for her in the future.
