Breast Reduction in Scottsdale, AZ
Overly large breasts can be inconvenient and painful for many women. While many desire to have fuller, larger breasts possible with breast augmentation surgery, some women believe that their breasts are too large and could benefit from a smaller breast size. The heaviness of large breasts can result in back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain. A breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, reduces breasts to a comfortable and more convenient size. Over recent years, breast reduction surgery has become more common. Women are starting to realize that there is a surgical way to relieve them of their discomfort. If you are looking to lessen or alleviate the pain and discomfort stemming from your large breasts or are unhappy with your appearance, breast reduction surgery may be right for you.

“Dr. Spies and staff,
Test_07I just wanted to send you this and thank you for the wonderful care you gave me before during and after surgery. You are all so knowledgeable, caring and supportive. My experience was so positive. I’m recovering well and looking forward to getting out of this “ugly” bra.
Test_18I just wanted to let you know that you have forever changed my life for the better. My confidence was very low before meeting you and all the possibilities you provided changed that for me. The surgery you performed on me truly changed my life. I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate what you did for me. August 19, 2002 will be a day that I will never forget. I know this is routine work for you, but nothing is about what you did was routine for me. I am truly appreciative and I wanted to let you know that.
How Is Breast Reduction Performed?
Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia to ensure your comfort. As you will feel tired and groggy after surgery, it is important to have someone with you to drive you home.
- Donut: Concentric incisions are made around the areolas.
- Lollipop: Incisions are made around the areolas and then vertically down the lower pole of the breast
- Anchor or Inverted-T: Incisions are made around the areolas, vertically down the lower pole of the breast, and along the inframammary fold beneath the breast
After the incisions are made, Dr. Spies will remove excess tissue, fat, and skin. The remaining skin and tissue are then tightened. Dr. Spies will then reposition the areolas (if necessary) and close the incisions with removable sutures.
