The patient is a 65-year-old female who presented to my office with complaints of back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, bra strap grooving and difficulty finding clothes that fit due to her extremely large, pendulous breasts. I felt that bilateral breast reduction would give the patient the best overall results and I also recommended lateral chest liposuction to improve her contour and reduce her chest width.
During surgery I performed an anchor scar breast reduction and removed 640 grams from the right breast and 822 grams from the left breast due to preoperative asymmetry. I also performed power-assisted liposuction of the lateral chest. After surgery, the patient recovered very quickly and was thrilled with her smaller, perkier breasts and the improvement in her back, neck and shoulder symptoms.
