The doctors of Premier Plastic Surgery Group of Utah can use breast reduction to solve these problems and improve the size and shape of your breasts. After the procedure, your breasts will be more proportional to the rest of your body, your clothes will fit you better, and you will be relived of unnecessary pain and discomfort.

  • your breasts are too large for your body frame.
  • you have heavy, pendulous breasts with nipples and areolas that point downward.
  • one breast is much larger than the other.
  • you have back, neck or shoulder pain caused by the weight of your breasts.
  • you have skin irritation beneath your breasts.
  • the weight of your breasts causes indentations in your shoulders from tight bra straps.
  • your physical activity is restricted due to the size and weight of your breasts.
  • you are self-conscious about the size of your breasts.

Breast reduction can be performed on women of any age, but we recommend waiting until breast development has stopped. In addition, childbirth and breast feeding may have significant and unpredictable effects on the size and shape of your breasts. If you plan to breastfeed in the future, you should discuss this with us before breast reduction.

Fortunately, significant complications from breast reduction are infrequent. Every year, many thousands of women undergo successful breast reduction surgery, experience no major problems and are pleased with the results. Anyone considering surgery, however, should be aware of both the benefits and the risks.

The doctor will spend time helping you to understand the risks so that you can make an informed decision about whether or not to proceed. During your consultation, you will discuss your desired breast size as well as anything else about your breasts that you would like to see improved. A physical exam will also be performed to make sure that you are a good candidate.
