Breast Reduction

What is Breast Reduction?

Many women develop large breasts that are out of proportion to their body size after puberty or pregnancy. This may come with symptoms that include neck and back pain, rash, painful bra strap marks, difficulty fitting into clothes, tingling in the hands, and, in younger girls, difficulty adjusting socially. With a breast reduction in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the Partners in Plastic Surgery of West Michigan can reduce the breasts to a more normal size to relieve these symptoms.

Based on your exam, our surgeons at Partners in Plastic Surgery of West Michigan may use a short scar technique (the SPAIR technique), developed by Dr. Hammond. This technique reduces the amount of scarring and greatly improves the aesthetics of the breasts. Insurance typically covers this procedure. Other breast enhancement procedures performed at Plastic Surgery Partners of West Michigan include breast augmentation and breast lift, a procedure often combined with reduction for improved shape and size.

Our plastic surgeons understand that every case is different and strive to give you exceptional personal care. We have extensive experience with this procedure, have board-certified anesthesiologists on staff, and perform surgeries in our fully accredited facility.
