Breast Reduction

Proudly serving Denver, Littleton, Highlands Ranch and Nearby Areas of Colorado

Large, heavy breasts can be a source of discomfort and distress for many women in Denver. Breast reduction surgery helps alleviate the array of burdens associated with an oversized bosom, including pain, unwanted attention and interference with daily tasks and fun activities. The most frequent comment we hear from patients who have undergone a breast reduction procedure is, “I should have done this years ago.”

If you live in Littleton or Highlands Ranch and are ready to free yourself from the unwanted weight and size of cumbersome breasts, contact board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Zwiebel today by calling (720) 501-6500 or completing the form on this page to schedule a consultation. 

The Burden of Large Breasts

Women with oversized breasts can experience several physical difficulties, including:

  • Back pain
  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Bra straps that dig into skin
  • Chafing below the breast
  • Exhaustion
  • Restricted activity

Large breasts can also be a psychological burden, and cause women to feel:

  • Self-conscious
  • Overweight
  • Unattractive
  • Old or matronly
  • Anger and embarrassment over unwanted attention

Teens who experience abnormal breast development at an early age are particularly vulnerable to the negative effects of unwanted attention. They may become targets for jokes or ridicule during school. Even after high school, the aftereffects of teasing can linger into adulthood, making it difficult for some women to feel confident and comfortable in their own bodies.

The Breast Reduction Procedure

Breast reduction boasts one of the highest satisfaction rates of any plastic surgery procedure. It is highly effective at alleviating the physical and psychological effects of oversized breasts, and helps women improve their posture, explore new fashions and enjoy more recreational activities. Our patients report feeling free, young and attractive. 

In the procedure, our highly experienced breast reduction surgeon will remove excess breast tissue (mostly fat) using a blended approach of liposuction and surgical techniques. Remaining excess skin is then removed and the breast is reshaped for a natural, beautifully contoured result.

The goal of breast reduction isn’t just to reduce breast size, but to make the breast more attractive. Similar to a breast lift, the objective is to create breasts that have a youthful, elegant shape. The area around the breasts may also be contoured through various liposuction methods to provide an overall harmonious appearance.
