What is breast reduction:
Breast reduction surgery is also called "reduction mammoplasty." By removing excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin, Beverly Hills Breast Reduction Surgeon, Dr. Rahban will reduce the size of your breasts to achieve a comfortable and attractive size in proportion to your body.
Why you may want a breast reduction:
Too much of a good thing. Breasts are an attractive part of your body, but if they are overly large they can be a problem, too. If you are self-conscious about your breasts, or consider that they are attracting too much attention, it can be very uncomfortable.
Physical pain and discomfort. Large, pendulous breasts need a great deal of support, and they can place a heavy burden on your back and shoulders.
To maintain an active lifestyle. Very large breasts can make sports and exercise more difficult, or even impossible. With smaller breasts, you can be more active, comfortably.
Improving the fit of your clothing. When your breasts are overly large in proportion to the rest of your body, it can be difficult to find clothes that fit properly and look great.
What you want from breast reduction:
Breasts that are the right size for your body. You'd like to have breasts that are in proportion with the rest of your body, and fit comfortably into clothing without the need for alteration.
Breasts that are still full and attractive. Don't forget that, in the end, you love your breasts. After your breast reduction surgery, you still want them to be round and full and beautiful. Just a smaller, more manageable size.
The Details of Your Breast Reduction Consultation
A breast reduction is a highly personalized cosmetic procedure. As such, your breast reduction starts with a private consultation with Dr. Rahban for at least one hour. Dr. Rahban determines if you’re a suitable candidate for a breast reduction and, if so, curates the ideal treatment plan for your specific goals.
Dr. Rahban discusses your cosmetic concerns, the reasons for which you want a reduction, and your future goals. He reviews your medical history to determine if you have any health conditions precluding you from getting a reduction. He may also recommend mammograms or biopsies to ensure you’re in optimal health before proceeding with the treatment. If everything checks out, Dr. Rahban will collaboratively curate a breast reduction treatment plan with you.
Dr. Rahban examines and measures your breasts, including their size, shape, nipple placement, and skin quality. Based on your expectations and desired cup size, he recommends the ideal techniques or treatment plans. He discusses the steps of the procedure, incision styles, and other details. He also discusses the preparatory steps, recovery, results, and costs of the treatment. We also encourage you to clarify all your concerns, doubts, and questions — you should have complete clarity about the procedure.
