Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a Bethesda plastic surgeon with more than two decades of experience performing breast surgery procedures including breast augmentation, breast reduction, and breast lift. For patients complaining of larger breasts, this board certified plastic surgeon recommends breast reduction surgery, a procedure designed to remove excess tissue from the breasts and alleviate patients of the back and shoulder pain associated with it.
Breast reduction surgery is typically more common in women 40-54, however, younger patients have begun to show interest in the procedure in order to alleviate symptoms as they begin, rather than waiting for lifestyle factors like pregnancy or breastfeeding to worsen the associated symptoms. Breast reduction surgery with Dr. Oldham is performed via incisions under the breast, and around the areola. Post-surgery, these incisions are hidden along the natural coloration of the areola and under the contours of the newly-shaped breast, as seen in these pictures of patients before and after breast reduction surgery with Dr. Oldham.
