In his 25+ years of experience Dr. Roger J. Oldham, board certified plastic surgeon, has seen patients seeking breast surgery (breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction) for a number of personal reasons. Breast reduction surgery, however, is often considered a reconstructive procedure (vs. more cosmetic procedures like breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, facelift, blepharoplasty). And Dr. Oldham thinks about breast reduction in terms of reconstruction because it is indeed rebuilding overlarge breasts or naturally-occurring asymmetry in the breasts.
When patients come to Dr. Oldham seeking breast reduction to correct asymmetry in the breasts, sometimes breast reduction of one breast alone is enough to correct the imbalance. Sometimes, however, asymmetry in the breast size, with one side needing a breast augmentation and the other breast requiring a breast reduction to achieve the best possible symmetry. As Dr. Oldham often does for patients, combining breast reduction with breast augmentation is a second option for patients. If you are unhappy with asymmetrical breasts and are seeking breast reduction, look at these pictures of patients before and after breast reduction surgery with Dr. Oldham.
For more information about breast reduction procedure options, please feel free to call Dr. Roger J. Oldham to schedule your personal consultation today. If you have questions about the procedure, our patient counselor, Janet, can try to answer them, but often a good amount of time spent with Dr. Oldham during your consultation will provide a more complete explanation.
