Breast Reduction is a procedure to reduce the size, weight and strain of overly large breasts. Many women with overly large experience daily neck, shoulder and back pain that can vary from inconvenient to debilitating. Through Breast Reduction Dr. Squires has helped many women achieve the smaller and lighter breasts they desired to lead the more comfortable and confident life they deserve. Breast Reduction surgery is tailored to each woman’s individual needs and goals. Typically, the breast reduction procedure is performed through an incision either around the areola in a circle shape, or around the areola and vertically down to the crease of the breast in a keyhole shape, or around the areola and out both vertically and horizontally in an anchor-shaped, depending on the amount of reduction required. The nipple remains attached to the original blood and nerve supply, but is re-positioned to better suit the position of the smaller breasts when the excess tissue is removed and shaped.
