Breast Reduction in Baltimore, Maryland
Although it is extremely popular among our Baltimore, Maryland patients, breast augmentation isn’t for everyone. In fact, we see many women who instead want their breasts made smaller. Naturally occurring breasts that are too large breasts can cause a myriad of problems, from excessive neck and back problems to discomfort when exercising and even physical strap marks left behind on the shoulders. Breast reduction can reduce the size of the breasts, making them more proportionate to the body and more comfortable for the patient. Reducing the size of the breast is accomplished in our Baltimore, Maryland office by reducing the breast skin, fat, and actual breast tissue as well. The nipple and areola are also lifted into a more flattering position.
During breast reduction, unnecessary fat, tissue, and skin are carefully removed, and the breasts are essentially made smaller. They are also lifted into a more flattering position.

We are pleased to offer an alternative and new type of breast reduction surgery that involves breast liposuction alone. This procedure, which is less invasive than traditional breast reduction surgery, allows for excellent volume reduction of the breast and, to a modest degree, a lifting of the breast, as well. The technique of breast reduction through liposuction results in a shorter recovery time and very minimal scarring.
