Breast Reduction leaves behind lighter and firmer breasts
Women with health problems or are experiencing self-consciousness with very large and heavy breasts are candidates for breast reduction procedures. The goal of the surgery is to improve the contour of the breasts that make them more proportionate to the rest of the body. Patients may also want to treat medical problems associated with very large breasts.

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Lesavoy possesses extensive experience in performing breast reduction in Beverly Hills. The surgery involves the extraction of fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts. The result leaves smaller, lighter, and firmer breasts.
There are various techniques for breast surgery. Dr. Lesavoy can make an anchor-shaped incision around the areola that follows the natural curve of the crease below the breast. The skin from each side of the breast can be moved down and re-positioned around the areola, creating a new contour.
The nipples are generally attached to the blood vessels and nerves. In other cases, the breasts can be excessively large or pendulous, which means the nipples and areolas may have to be completely removed and grafted to a higher position. This may result in a loss of sensation in the nipple and areolar tissue.
