If you’re a woman with oversized breasts, you know what it’s like to struggle to find clothes that fit or to deal with the back and neck pain that comes from the extra weight pulling you forward. But with cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery from the office of Dr. Afifi – you can enjoy freedom from pain and improved body shape. For women with breasts that are too large for their frame, Dr. Afifi offers Newport Beach breast reduction surgery.



Why Choose Breast Reduction Surgery?


Breast reduction surgery is a life-changing treatment for women suffering from heavy breasts that do not compliment their body shape. Oversized breasts can cause:



  • Back, neck, and shoulder pain

  • Stooped posture

  • Painful bra strap marks from too much pressure

  • Skin irritation



Large breasts can also make it difficult to find clothes that fit and to be as active as you’d like. Getting breast reduction surgery makes it easy to feel good about yourself again. A breast reduction will make breasts:


  • Smaller

  • Lighter

  • Firmer

  • More even

  • More proportionate for your body shape



From all the different types of breast augmentation treatments, reduction results in the quickest body-image change. No matter what age you are – if your breasts have fully developed and are causing you emotional or physical distress, breast surgery can help.



What to Expect with Breast Reduction


Breast reduction is an out-patient procedure (no overnight stay required) that is typically completed in 2-3 hours, depending on the necessary extent of treatment. Dr. Afifi will remove excess breast fat and skin (in some cases) to create breasts reshaped to be lighter in weight and firmer to the touch. Depending on your cosmetic surgery needs, your nipples and areolas may need repositioning as well to create the ideal aesthetic for your new breast shape. Sometimes liposuction can be used to reduce breast size and avoid surgery. Recovery time for this procedure usually takes a few weeks, and a special supportive bra will promote healing.


Ideal candidates for this breast surgery are those who are finished having children and who are in good physical health, as breast size and shape alters with weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and breastfeeding.



Breast Surgery in Newport Beach


You can do something about the discomfort and self-esteem issues that come along with having breasts that are too big for your body. If your breasts’ size and weight are holding you back from feeling confident and comfortable, Dr. Afifi offers breast reduction surgery in Newport Beach. The good news is, if your breast reduction treatment is deemed medically necessary due to chronic pain or skin issues, your procedure may be covered by your insurance provider. However, it’s important to discuss coverage with your insurance company to verify what your plan covers.


To get started, contact Dr. Afifi’s office to schedule your initial consultation for breast reduction care.
