We want you to get the most out of your consultation. If at all possible, it is best to make arrangements for small children to stay home rather than having them join us for your appointments.

It can be difficult to decide that you need a breast reduction. Societal pressure regarding breast size can be immense, and many Arizona women are reluctant to take this step. Gawley Plastic Surgery understands how difficult a decision this can be, and we don’t believe you should have to suffer the pain that comes from heavy, pendulous breasts.

You likely have a number of breast reduction questions, and we’re happy to answer all of them. Our surgeons will discuss your case with care and compassion.

Not everyone is a good candidate for a breast reduction, and our surgeons will evaluate whether you are. Most breast reduction patients have a similar set of problems they wish to address, including:

  • Heavy, pendulous breasts that are out of proportion with your frame
  • Neck and back pain
  • Rashes
  • Pain from bra straps

An ideal breast reduction candidate should be in good overall health, have no plans to breast feed after the procedure and come in with realistic expectations.

If you’re an Arizona woman with questions about the breast reduction procedure, please contact Gawley Plastic Surgery today to arrange a consultation.
