Breast Reduction

“Dr. Carney always took the time to answer all my questions and any questions my husband had. I felt I was in medically sound hands, allowing me to concentrate on myself and getting better. The end result is wonderful! I feel better being free of breast cysts and look better than I did before.”*

Breasts that are too large can affect your self image and can lead to physical pain interfering with an active lifestyle. Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty removes excess fat, glandular tissue and skin to create a more proportionate breast size. Dr. Carney utilizes the vertical technique with a minimum incision, reducing or removing the need for an incision under the breast.

Reduction mammoplasty can greatly decrease back and neck pain and help you enjoy increased activity. The results should improve your overall proportions and restore your self-confidence. The procedure can be done on one or both breasts.

HOW IT WORKS

Many insurance reimbursed cases are performed in the hospital setting. Most cosmetic procedures are performed at The Carney Center. The surgical techniques will vary depending on the amount of excess breast tissue and skin present.
