Balance Your Physique

Women with large or oversized breasts may experience discomfort from their breasts’ heavy weight. Breast size and weight can also lead to other long-term health issues, including pain in the neck and back, spinal issues, and other effects due to a decreased ability to engage comfortably in physical activities. A breast reduction at MG Plastic Surgery can bring balance to your body by removing excess tissue.

What Is Breast Reduction?

For women who wish to reduce the size of their breasts, reduction mammaplasty removes extra fat and skin, reshapes and lifts the breasts, repositions the areolae, and in some cases, decreases their size. Breast reduction surgery aims to improve the shape and size of the breasts, so they look and feel more proportionate, symmetrical, and harmonious with the rest of the body.

Meet Your Doctor

The breasts are made up of delicate tissues and nerves that require great precision and technical skill to ensure proper function and appearance when considering any surgical procedure. Women from Scottsdale, AZ, choose Dr. Manuel Gigena for breast reduction surgery because his dedication to helping them achieve their ideal bodies shows in his compassionate approach to patient care and outstanding beauty-enhancing results.

Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia to prioritize your comfort during the procedure. Dr. Gigena will make an incision around the areola and use either the lollipop incision (tracing down to the bottom crease of the breast) or the anchor incision (tracing down to the bottom and then along the crease of the breast), depending on the extent of reduction. 

For more extensive breast mass reduction, Dr. Gigena may include liposuction. Once the desired size has been achieved, the excess skin is removed, the areolae are repositioned and resized, if necessary, and the breast is lifted to an attractive and symmetrical position, creating harmony and balance in the breast area. Of course, the extent of each surgery varies depending on each patient’s body and aesthetic goals.


Dr. Gigena will give you a detailed recovery plan to ensure a complete and easy healing process. You will receive a compression garment or light surgical bra to wear during the first four to six weeks of healing. This is necessary to support your newly shaped breasts. Drainage tubes may be required to empty fluid and reduce swelling in a more extensive procedure. 

A minimal amount of walking will improve circulation and decrease the possibility of blood clots forming. Most patients can return to work – depending on their occupation – and light activities after one or two weeks. Because the area will be swollen and tender, you must avoid strenuous lifting or exercise while you recuperate. You can resume full participation in daily activities after six weeks. 

How Do I Know if I Am a Good Candidate?

In order to be considered a good candidate for the procedure, you must consider the following qualifications:

  • Being in good overall health and close to your average weight (i.e., not trying to lose weight)
  • Actively maintaining healthy habits concerning diet and exercise
  • Not currently or planning to be pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Avoiding smoking for six weeks or more before and after the procedure

Ideal candidates for breast reduction have overly large breasts and are interested in the following:

  • Surgically decreasing the size and weight of their breasts
  • Improving asymmetry
  • Lessening symptoms of chronic irritation underneath the breasts
  • Regaining the ability to engage in day-to-day activities comfortably
  • Increasing quality of life
  • Experiencing relief from neck, shoulder, back, and nerve pain
  • Enhancing self-image
  • Fitting more easily into bras and clothing
