Women with overly large breasts often face multiple health problems, including unbearable back, neck and shoulder pain, chafing, numbness and tingling in the arms and hands, difficulty buying clothes 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 experience relief from physical and emotional discomforts, an ability to exercise the way they want, and clothing options they have 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.
Breast Reduction Reviews
"From the moment you walk into his office you are greeted and made to feel at home. I was interested in having a breast augmentation done and didn't know where to go. One of my coworkers had hers done with Dr Williams and was very pleased. She couldn't say enough good things about him. The day of my consultation he actually listened to what I had to say! He asked me what my goals and expectations were. While he was speaking with me,never once did I feel he was in a hurry or ru...shing to get to his next patient. He was very patient and answered all of my questions. I went in more than once to show him pictures of what I had in mind for the end result. He gave me his professional opinion and agreed with some of my pictures and some he didn't think would work on my frame. He was very thorough in explaining the procedure to me and what I should expect afterwards. He made sure I didn't have any unanswered questions. By this time I had full confidence in him and told him to do what he thought would look best on me. He put some of my ideas and some of his recommendations together and the end result was amazing!!! I couldn't have been happier!! If you are in search of an awesome doctor that is not only a caring and compassionate person but also a true artist, then Dr Williams should be your first choice. I was so happy with my results that my mom will also be having him do her procedure as well. Just like myself, once my mom spoke to him for the first time, she knew she had made the right choice in picking him to do her procedure. For any cosmetic procedure in my opinion ,Dr Williams is the best way to go!!"- L.W. / Facebook / May 29, 2014
"I would highly recommend Dr. Williams to anyone considering plastic surgery. I am a mother of 2 and was very hesitant about getting any elective surgery done. After meeting with Dr. Williams and his staff, I knew if I were to get a breast augmentation done, it would be with him. I had met with a number of other Doctors in the area and there was no comparison. The office is very professional and the people there are very kind and courteous. The office manager, Nicole, hel...ped me through the whole decision process the way a good unbiased friend would. They were able to give me all the information I needed to make an informed decision with my body. My anxiety soon grew into trust and I am so happy with the end result. Dr. Williams is an expert in his field and delivers results to perfection. I am so happy I did the research and found the best in the industry. The results speak for themselves."- S.S. / Facebook / May 30, 2014
"Dr. Williams and his staff were beyond amazing! Getting any type of surgery is of course nerve racking but Dr. Williams and Nicole, his office manager, made the experience so easy and comfortable. I went in for a consultation for breast augmentation and from the moment I was greeted at my first appointment I felt at home and the nerves went right out the window. I had been referred by a friend to him and I loved his honesty when choosing the right look for me that I didn't even consult with other dr's. I trusted him completely. The day of surgery went perfectly smooth and the recovery was so painless and easy. I would highly recommend Dr. Williams to anyone! I'm sad all my post op appts are done because I enjoyed going in to see the staff so much! Extremely happy with my results and my whole experience! Thank you Dr. Williams and staff!"- A.G. / Facebook / Nov 13, 2015
"I feel like if Im a super model with my new breast implants.The doctor did an awsome job and they look great."- J. / Kudzu / Jan 30, 2016
"I recently went to Dr. Williams for breast augmentation and I'm extremely pleased with my result. His staff was not only knowledgeable, but also warm and friendly. Dr. Williams is an excellent surgeon and he really listens to you. Rather than just trying on sizers and guessing what size you want to be, he takes the time to get to know his patients which takes the guess work out of it. I went to many other plastic surgeons only to find out they were not members of the Society of Plastic Surgeons or discovered they had issues with the AZ Medical Board. Make sure you do your research...and get a consultation with Dr. Williams. You won't be sorry!"- L. / Kudzu / Jan 30, 2016
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 conditions:
- 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 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 proportioned breast. The incisions typically go around the areola, down the center of the beast from the base fo the areola to the breast crease and then in 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 3-4 days and may resume vigorous physical activity such as exercise in 6-8 weeks.
