What is Breast Reduction?
Abnormally large breasts can cause social and functional problems for women. In addition, extremely large breasts can create self-confidence issues and overall embarrassment, as well as joint pain. Our team in Beverly Hills, CA helps countless women regain their confidence and enjoy an active lifestyle through surgical reduction of the breasts. This cosmetic surgery at Dr. Jaime S. Schwartz MD FACS removes excess breast tissue and skin to recontour the breasts to a more normal size. It also reduces the size of the areolas and nipples, as well as repositions them to help them better fit the new size of the breasts. In most situations, a breast lift is also performed to provide a more taut and youthful appearance. Dr. Schwartz is highly experienced in utilizing this popular procedure to restore the health and confidence of women with overly large breasts.
Breast Reduction Reviews
"I can honestly say that my experience at The Roxbury Institute and especially with Dr. Schwartz exceeded my expectations! He is always pleasant, informative and makes everyone in the room feel comfortable. My surgery process from beginning to end was very pleasant and I couldn't ask for a better recovery and end result of my procedure. I have and would continue to recommend Dr. Schwartz in the future!"- V.L. / Yelp / Apr 23, 2017
"Hello Internet,I am a transgender man (ftm) who saw Dr Schwartz to get my top surgery. It was a very long and difficult process to find a doctor in the first place but I was pleased to discover his office. I had a few consultations with other surgeons who specialize in the type of surgery i was seeking, but my experience with them wasn't as pleasant. Dr Schwartz and his staff are very professional and easy going individuals that help you find the best needs for your care. From getting my disability papers in order (since i was out of work for a month) to following up the next few days after surgery to make sure everything went smoothly. I felt at ease knowing they knew how to handle everything. I was a little hesitant at first since he didnt have much experience with transgender individuals, but he knows what hes talking about. Im really happy with the way everything turned out and how awesome every they all are!"- C.B. / Google / Apr 07, 2017

"Why did I not find this place BEFORE I had implants. Dr. Jamie Schwartz is just amazing. What he did with what little he had to work with is just amazing. Short story: 4th breast surgery, terrible stretched skin, Dr. Jamie Schwartz removed my implants, did a lift and made them better than when I was 17. Long story: At 20, in 1980 (the stone age of plastic surgery in a hospital in rural Long Island), I had a breast reduction mastopexy. After having a baby in 1999, the boobs just did not hold up so I went to everyone in Orange County and out by where I lived in Corona. In 2002 found a Doctor who did an over the muscle silicone implant, which only stretched my skin more. In 2006, I started having pain after my mammogram and went to everyone I could find since I now lived near Beverly Hills and there were so many Plastic Surgeons to choose from I even went to one of the surgeons who was on the "Extreme Makover" TV series. No one wanted to touch me because they feared losing blood supply to the nipple. I did find someone at a "Modern" Plastic Surgery place in Beverly Hills who removed the ruptured implants and did new under the muscle textured silicone implants. After years of progressive unexplained immune system issues, I decided to lose the implants as I feared they were responsible for my illnesses. I went to the Roxbury Institute based on the reviews I read for Dr. Schwartz. What the reviews did not go into was how exceptional everyone there is. The level of care I received before, during and after the surgery was nothing short of amazing. Dawn Rapazzo, Dr. Schwartz' OR Nurse/Assistant even came to my house to check on me. Wow. She called or texted or both every day, visited me in the Pearl Recovery Center (It was worth it for me) and just went the extra mile every single interaction we had. I have better breasts now than when I was 17. Dr. Schwartz made sure to save the nipple blood supply despite going in after 3 other surgeons have moved things around. And he preserved sensation, which is a bonus. In seeing before and after pictures of implant removal, even the photos of Tawny Kitaen, I had very low expectations. Dr. Schwartz did a magnificent job. Just amazing. I wish I never had implants, but from the look of things now, you can't tell I ever did."- Y.R. / Yelp / Nov 04, 2017
"I've been naturally big breasted my entire life, At 30 years old I finally made the decision to get a breast reduction. It took me a year to actually make it in to a doctors office. After meeting with 2 different doctors.. I knew instantly Dr. Schwartz was going to be my surgeon. The experience from the beginning to end was incredible! Now, this summer, being able to wear a tank top was a dream come true. Thank you Dr. Schwartz and staff!"- L.V. / Yelp / Sep 02, 2015
Is Breast Reduction Right for Me?
If you have large, heavy breasts that create obstacles in your daily life, cosmetic breast reduction may be what you need to get the shape you want. This surgery is helpful for women who have constant worry or are not able to live an active life because of the size of their breasts. If you also deal with ongoing skin inflammations or irritations (as well as neck pain), this surgery can eliminate these annoyances. It is important patients are at a normal weight and choose a trained surgeon, such as Dr. Schwartz, who understands their concerns and goals and has the knowledge to produce a pleasing and natural appearance.
How is Breast Reduction Performed?
Surgical breast reduction is an outpatient process and is conducted with general anesthesia. The timing of surgery depends on several factors, including what incision method is used, the overall technique, and how much reduction is required. The areola and nipple area repositioning is also a factor. For most patients, liposuction is used for tissue and fat reduction to reduce the breast size. During the private consultation, all of these factors will be addressed with our team. The topic of scarring is also scrupulously examined and talked through as it is common to occur. However, advanced methods have led to a decrease in overall scarring. Depending on the difficulty of the reduction, either an anchor or a vertical incision will be made. Breast fat and tissue will then be removed, and the surrounding skin and tissue will be pulled tight and secured.
What Results Can I Expect from Breast Reduction?
Once surgery has been completed, you will be observed closely in our private recovery area and then sent home to heal. A small, tube-like draining device is usually placed near the surgical site to help control bleeding and swelling. Utilizing Dr. Schwartz's Rapid Recuperation technique, most clients are out to dinner 24 hours after surgery, taking only Ibuprofen or Tylenol if needed. A compression bra will be worn for several days that will boost blood circulation to the breasts during the immediate recovery. In a month or so, the breasts will naturally fall into position and the post-op effects will fade away. The vast majority of our patients say they feel lighter, relieved, and more confident. Following surgical breast reduction, you can buy the clothes you have always wanted and feel enthusiastic about your new contour. Remember, it is still important to stay at a healthy body weight so the results are not affected in a negative way.
