Women with overly large breasts often face multiple health problems, including unbearable back pain, shoulder pain, chafing, and limited physical activity. A breast reduction surgery by Scottsdale, AZ board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John Williams, can be life changing and give women much more than just smaller and suppler breasts. Many receive relief from physical and emotional discomforts, an ability to exercise the way they want to, and clothing options they never had before. By removing excess breast tissue and skin, the surgery can make your breasts more proportional to the rest of your body. The nipple will be repositioned and the areola size may be reduced, as well. Some insurance companies may cover the cost of breast reduction surgery depending on the size of the breasts and the symptoms they cause. Dr. Williams and his caring staff can provide you with an individualized treatment plan and go over any questions you may have about the procedure.
"Dr. Williams and his staff are incredible! My husband and I went in for my first visit and had every question answered with complete transparency. We instantly felt confident that this would be my surgeon. No rushing us into a deposit or " special price" for a short time bologna. It took me 20 years to finally make myself complete and I couldn't be more pleased. I gladly agreed to post my before and after pictures Feb. 2018 and June 2018...beautiful work Dr. Williams and thank you so very much. Brian and I love the new me!"- B.S. / Google / Jun 18, 2018
"I cannot express enough how much Dr. Williams has changed my life. I had always struggled with my weight, even as a child. I had recently lost a significant amount of weight but was still not happy with what I was seeing in the mirror. There was a lot of excess skin. I tried exercise, wraps, sculpting, nothing helped. Even though my weight and size reflected a thinner person, I felt horrible. I went for my consult with Dr. Williams and it changed my life forever. I had the tummy tuck and breast lift with augmentation. I can wear a bikini now, and it looks good! I have never been able to say that! I almost cannot believe it is my body when I look in the mirror. I know there are critics of plastic surgery. My experience was AMAZING. Dr. Williams and his staff did an excellent job! I am not sure they realize the impact they had on my life and I cannot thank them enough. Even if your skeptical, call. It could change your life too."- R.C. / Google / May 26, 2018

Breast reduction is usually performed after breast development has stopped, since childbirth and breast-feeding may have significant and unpredictable effects on the size and shape of the breasts. Nevertheless, many women decide to undergo breast reduction surgery before having children.
You may be a good candidate for breast reduction if you have any of the following condition:
- Back, neck, or shoulder pain caused by the weight of your breasts
- Heavy, sagging breasts with very low nipples
- Breasts that are too large in proportion to your body frame
- Restriction of physical activity due to the size and weight of your breasts
- One breast that is much larger than the other
Breast reduction surgery involves removing excess breast tissue as well as skin to create a smaller, firmer, more proportional breast. The incisions typically go around the areola, down the center of the beast from the base fo the areola to the breast crease. Many patients term this the "anchor incision". Each incision is meticulously closed so that they blend into the natural creases and folds of the breast over time.
What to Expect
After breast reduction surgery, patients will immediately feel lighter on top. The amount of breast tissue removed during surgery will be based on the initial evaluation and the patient’s preference. Often, the reduction results in a decrease in one or two cup sizes. For the first four weeks, Dr. Williams will recommend the use of a sports bra for comfort during the recovery period. Patients may go back to work within 7-10 days and may resume vigorous physical activity such as exercise in 6-8 weeks.
