Breast Reduction in the Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs Area

Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure to reduce the size of the breasts. A breast reduction may be done to improve the appearance of the breasts, or for medical reasons. Overly large breasts often cause varying degrees of distress and discomfort such as back ache, neck and shoulder pain from the weight of the breasts, restriction from some physical activities, painful indentations from bra straps straining to support heavy breasts, stretching of the skin, and rashes under the breasts. All of these concerns can be addressed through breast reduction. Dr. Sofonio, a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, offers breast reduction procedures to residents of Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage, CA.

Breast Reduction Procedure

A breast reduction procedure is personalized to the particular needs of the patient. Your needs will be determined when you come in for a consultation with Dr. Sofonio. During the procedure, he will make strategic incisions through which he will remove excess fat and glandular tissue. He will also remove any excess skin. After this step, he will reduce the diameter of the areola where applicable, in addition to repositioning the nipples.

Post-Treatment Care

Dr. Sofonio will recommend the best post-treatment care following your procedure. You may be required to wear a surgical bra and drainage tubes may be inserted into the incisions to help prevent the accumulation of fluids.

Breast Reduction Results

Following your breast reduction, you should see an instantaneous result. Despite any initial swellings, your breast will be smaller and in better proportion to the rest of your body.
