Breast Reduction (Female)

“ Correct breast proportions improve a woman’s posture, sense of attractiveness and self-confidence .”  Dr. Kim

Are heavy breasts weighing down your entire body? Breast reduction may be the answer for you. Your dreams can be achieved through the intricate balance of artistic vision, thoughtful analysis and surgical precision. Many years of experience and hundreds of breast surgeries have refined Dr. Kim’s unique technique and artistic approach to breast reduction surgery.

Why you should choose Dr. Kim for your breast surgery

  • Dr. Kim focuses on achieving an artistic balance for your body.
  • Comprehensive pre-operative analysis improves desired results.
  • Dr. Kim tailors his breast reduction technique for an individual’s goals and body type.
  • Meticulous post-operative care personally provided by Dr. Kim.
  • Direct access to Dr. Kim via cell phone following your procedure.

Many other surgeons focus mainly on reducing the size of your breasts. Dr. Kim of Gold Coast Plastic Surgery and Laser Center LLC believes that a reduced breast size is only part of the formula for success. He believes that shaping the breasts to create a more balanced, ideal appearance for the entire body is equally important. Every patient is unique in their desired breast shape and size. Dr. Kim uses his experience to create the desired cup size with the proper balance of fullness and cleavage for the patient.

When you have your consultation with Dr. Kim, he will discuss the particular medical problems you may be experiencing due to the excessive weight of your breasts, such as back and neck pain, skin irritation, skeletal deformities and breathing problems. He will also counsel you about the best approach to your surgery. Individual patient desires about final breast size plays a large part in the decision making process. At Gold Coast Plastic Surgery and Laser Center, patient focused evaluations and treatments are our goal.

What about the scars? At Gold Coast Plastic Surgery and Laser Center many of our breast reduction patients are concerned with how well they will heal after surgery. Most breast reduction surgery requires incisions that go along the border of the pigmented nipple (areola) and then extend vertically below the nipple and sometimes along the natural breast crease (inframammary fold). These incisions are necessary so that Dr. Kim can reduce the bulk of each breast by removing excess skin, fat and breast tissue while he artfully reshapes them to sit in an ideal position on the chest. Some women are candidates for a vertical breast reduction procedure. This avoids the lower breast crease incision found in traditional breast reduction surgery. At the same time Dr. Kim will reduce the size of the nipples (areola) and position them higher on the chest, to give the breast a natural, more youthful appearance.

Finally, Dr. Kim performs your post-operative evaluation and care to ensure proper healing and results. Specific post care instructions include nutritional supplements, silicone sheeting and surgical garments to encourage the best possible outcome. Unlike many of his colleagues, Dr. Kim provides direct access to his cell phone as you recover from your surgery for any questions or concerns you may have.
