Breast Reduction



For some women, their breasts may complement their figure with natural proportions. Others, however, may have larger breasts that cause chronic discomfort. When your breasts are disproportionately large compared to the rest of your body, they can take a toll on your quality of life.

Breast reduction is the most effective way to decrease the size of the breasts and improve comfort on an everyday basis. If you’re curious about whether breast reduction surgery is the best method of treatment for you, Dr. Williams can meet with you and share the information you need to make the right decision.


If you carry breasts that are too large for your body, then you know what it feels like to structure your everyday routine around your size and discomfort. Finding clothes that fit or bras with proper support can become frustrating and make it difficult to feel confident about your appearance.

Abundant breasts have also been linked to back, neck and shoulder strain and can keep you from maintaining a healthy posture. Many women with larger breasts are reluctant to exercise or participate in social activities because of the physical and emotional pain that the excess tissue creates.

Although breast reduction with breast lift can reshape the breasts to look more attractive, the goal is to reduce your daily discomfort and help you take part in the activities you love with confidence.


Dr. Williams can help you decide whether breast reduction surgery will meet your expectations by discussing your individual concerns during a consultation. A physical examination will help him locate the excess tissue that needs to be removed.

Dr. Williams will not only reduce the correct amount of glandular tissue, but he will also tailor your results to look natural to your current proportions and remain functional with as little downtime as possible. Based on his findings, Dr. Williams will choose the best technique for your individual case and explain the procedural details of your surgery.

Your breast reduction will begin with a precise incision around the areola and along the breast that will minimize the length of incision and the time of recovery. The exact incision that Dr. Williams uses for your particular case will depend on your current cup size and anticipated results.

The incision will allow Dr. Williams to reposition the nipple and remove underlying breast tissue. He will also lift and reshape your breasts to produce a natural and youthful breast enhancement. To complete the shape of your smaller chest, Dr. Williams will close the incisions using sutures. Although your breasts may exhibit some scarring, the skin will heal and the scars will fade significantly over time.

To aid in your recovery, Dr. Williams will provide you with post-operative instructions that detail how to care for your incisions after surgery. He will also schedule follow-up appointments to ensure that you are healing properly.

A breast reduction can help you take pride in your body and life a more active and comfortable lifestyle. To find out whether breast reduction surgery is right for you, contact Dr. Williams at 702-259-3223 and schedule a consultation.
