A Life-Altering Procedure

I had a breast reduction with a free nipple graft with Dr. Zemmel. I came in for my consultation and he made me feel very comfortable. He explained the whole procedure to me and he told me what they would look like after the surgery. He was spot on perfect, they look exactly the way he explained....I couldn’t be any happier. The only thing is I wish I did it sooner.”

There are many reasons why women seek breast reduction. One of the most common is pain in the neck, back, and shoulders. Enlarged breasts can also cause discomfort when rashes develop beneath the breast folds. These concerns and more are why many women choose to undergo breast reduction at Richmond Aesthetic Surgery. Whether it is for cosmetic and/or medical reasons, our team understands that surgery is a very personal decision, which is why we are committed to providing high quality, compassionate care. We are proud to offer such a life-altering procedure that enhances daily function by relieving the burden of overly large breasts.

Top 5 Reasons for Breast Reduction

  1. Chronic neck, back, and/or shoulder pain
  2. Unable to find properly-fitting bras and clothing
  3. Rash or discoloration beneath the breasts
  4. Discomfort during exercise
  5. Desire for smaller, lifted breasts

Many women report immediate improvement in their chronic pain symptoms right after surgery. Despite recovering from the surgery itself, many women report immediate significant improvement in neck, back, and shoulder pain.

Some patients report to Dr. Zemmel that they can even breathe better after surgery. Our board-certified plastic surgeon has many patients who have subsequently lost a significant amount of weight after the procedure. These women say that reducing the size of the breasts has unburdened their whole upper bodies and has allowed them to significantly increase their physical activity level. This side is one of the most important beneficial side effects of breast reduction surgery. Not only does it improve or cure upper body chronic pain, but improves the overall health of our patients.
