This 24 year old underwent a breast reduction performed by Dr. Joshua Cooper at Sound Plastic Surgery in Seattle. She was bothered by neck, shoulder, and upper back pain due to the weight of her large breasts. Approximately 3 pounds of tissue were removed. As with all of his breast reductions, Dr. Cooper uses a superior-medial pedicle technique. Remember: what happens under the skin during a breast reduction is just as important as what happens with the skin! This technique allows plastic surgeons to remove the unwanted heavy tissue in the lower portion of the breast while delivering smaller, nicely shaped breasts for patients. This patient is thrilled with her results!
