Larger breasts are not always desirable, especially for women with smaller frames or an active lifestyle. While many women seek breast augmentation to increase breast size, many others want to reduce their breasts for a multitude of reasons. For women who want to downsize their breasts, HMS Plastic Surgery offers breast reduction surgery at our plastic surgery center in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale, FL, area.
For women with larger than average breasts, the excess weight on their chest can be cumbersome and lead to medical issues. The heaviness can create an imbalance that puts strain on the back. Many women complain of chronic back pain that is attributed to their breast size. The shoulder straps of the bra can put pressure on the shoulders, also resulting in pain.
Beyond the medical reasons for breast reduction, many women also are unhappy with other issues related to their large breasts. Finding clothes to fit, buying bras and the overall appearance may be undesirable. For athletic women, breasts can be even more cumbersome and impact their performance.
Mammaplasty in Miami
Dr. Harry Salinas is a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery.

Using the latest techniques, Dr. Salinas can create symmetrical, smaller breasts to the specifications of his patients, with discreet and natural-appearing results.
During the breast reduction surgery, excess skin and tissue are removed and the breast tissue is reshaped. The length of the procedure depends on the size of the breasts and how much tissue and skin will need to be removed. Patients can expect to need 2-3 weeks of recovery before returning to work after their procedure.
