Consider breast reduction in San Diego County – La Jolla with surgeon Robert Kearney. Information on large breast pain, incision sites, surgical procedure, scars, recovery and more.

You may be a candidate for breast reduction if you have excessively large breasts that cause pain and backache; if your breasts are way too large for your frame; if you have one breast that is larger than the other; or if you have restrictions in physical activity due to the size of your breasts

The most common incision for breast reduction is an “anchor” incision which is made around your areolas, vertically from the areola to the crease of the breast and then horizontally along the bottom crease of the breast. The size of the areola is reduced during the procedure. With limited breast reduction procedures the scar can sometimes be reduced to a “lollipop” type scar. San Diego plastic surgeon – Dr. Kearney performs breast reduction under general anesthesia and you may go home the same day. Most patients are able to return to work within 1 week and resume normal activities within 3 to 4 weeks. Continue reading about breast reduction surgery in La Jolla.
