Breast appearance can play a leading role in your self-image and sense of femininity. If your breasts feel too large for your frame, attracted unwanted or negative attention, or make you feel self-conscious about your figure, a breast reduction can help.
Dr. Truong uses the most advanced breast surgery techniques to limit scarring and give you a look that better matches your personal ideal.

In some cases, breast reduction may be partially or fully covered by your existing health insurance. However, we offer CareCredit and other financing options that make breast reduction work with nearly any budget even if your insurance won’t cover the procedure.
Dr. Truong offers a thorough and comprehensive consultation where you can get the details on all of your cosmetic options. He’ll take the time to answer each and every one of your questions.
Women often turn toward breast reduction as a solution for years of back pain, discomfort while exercising, recurring skin rashes and other physical issues related to overly large breast size. A breast reduction can also help alleviate the emotional distress that often goes hand in hand with these concerns.
At your consultation with Dr. Truong, you’ll talk with him about your reasons for considering breast reduction and the end results you hope to see. He’ll explain more about what you can expect during surgery and recovery, and ask if there are other issues you’d like addressed. For example, many women choose to have their areolas resized as part of a breast reduction, too.
Before you leave your consultation, you’ll be given pre- and post-op instructions so you feel confident and prepared before your surgery day.
Breast reduction surgery typically takes about 3 hours, depending on the level of correction needed and the complexity of the procedure. If your breast reduction is being performed with other procedures, as in the case of a mommy makeover, the total time of your appointment may vary. Since breast reduction is most often performed as an outpatient procedure, you can expect to head home the same day as your surgery.
It’s normal to feel sore after your breast reduction, so Dr. Truong will ask you to wear a special supportive bra to help you feel more comfortable. Most women take a few days off from work to rest, but you can resume your regular daily routine after that. Exercise and any activities that involve lifting the arms overhead should wait a bit longer.
As swelling dissipates, you’ll see your final results become more apparent over time. Breasts should look more petite and feel firmer, with proportionate and flattering areolae and nipples.
