Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is a surgery that is used to reduce the size of overly large breasts in order to create a more balanced figure or to treat physical pain. Women with large breasts often suffer from problems such as the neck, back, or shoulder pain, rashes, or an inability to find properly fitting clothing.

With offices in Camarillo and Santa Barbara, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Kolder can perform a breast reduction procedure for women whose breasts are limiting them physically and/or emotionally.

Your Breast Reduction Consultation

During your consultation, Dr. Kolder, will be able to tell if a breast reduction can help to achieve your goals.

You will be able to ask any questions you have about the breast reduction procedure. Details such as surgery steps, benefits, and recovery will be covered. Breast reduction before and after photos will also be available during your consultation.

There are different methods used for breast reduction surgery. Dr. Kolder will work with you to develop a personalized procedure based on your anatomy and goals for your surgery.

The Breast Reduction Procedure

Your breast reduction will be performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis at our Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC). The procedure involves the removal of excess skin, fat, and tissue to elevate and sculpt the breasts to a size that is more comfortable and proportionate to the rest of your figure.
The nipple may also need to be repositioned to a more natural location on the breast. Depending on the volume of your breasts, liposuction may be used to create the desired breast shape and size.

Recovering from Breast Reduction

You can experience some bruising, swelling and slight discomfort following your breast reduction surgery. These side effects are temporary, and you may feel well enough to return to work as soon as 1 to 2 weeks after surgery.

Dr. Kolder recommends wearing a surgical bra 24 hours a day for 2 weeks to help aid in the healing process. Exercise should be avoided for 4 to 6 weeks following your surgery.

After your breast reduction surgery, it can feel as though a weight has literally been lifted off your shoulders.

Breast Reduction


Once your surgery is complete, you should notice an immediate change in the look and feel of your breasts. Women are often thrilled with their new figure after breast reduction, but it is the physical benefits that make this surgery so life-changing.
Problems such as neck, back and shoulder pain are significantly alleviated or even completely gone following a breast reduction. You should be able to move around and exercise more freely without the discomfort originally caused by your large breasts.
