Breast reduction surgery, technically termed as reduction mammoplasty, removes excess breast fat, tissue and skin to reduce the breast size and create a more aesthetically pleasing shape that is in proportion with the rest of your body. This procedure, as with many plastic surgery procedures, also offers the medically appropriate functional benefit of relieving the symptoms and discomfort associated with overly large breasts. According to the most recent statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), breast reduction rates continue to rise, with more than 43,000 aesthetic drive breast reductions performed in 2017.
You can trust renowned Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Kapoor with your surgery. Dr. Kapoor has extensive experience performing all sorts of breast augmentation procedures and providing stunning results for his patients.
Breast reduction is one of the many plastic surgery procedures that offer aesthetic and functional benefits for the patient. For women with overly large breasts, even minor tasks can become difficult due to the burden of weight placed on their back and neck. I see many women in my Beverly Hills practice who wish to be able to live their lives pain free so that they can accomplish the goals they have set for themselves. I take great pride in performing this procedure as the immediate physical and psychological benefits are clearly evident. As more women look to breast reduction surgery to enhance their figure and lifestyle, insurance coverage for this procedure is becoming easier to obtain. As a plastic surgeon practicing for years in Beverly Hills, it’s exciting to see tremendous gains in beneficial, medically necessary procedures.

A consultation with Dr. Kapoor at his Beverly Hills office will help to determine if breast reduction is right for you. This is an important part of the process which helps Dr. Kapoor understand your goals for your body. There are several issues which will be addressed during your consultation:
Dr. Kapoor is a well-trained, highly experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills who uses a refined, mastered technique to improve the size and shape of the breasts to achieve the desired results. His detail-oriented, results driven technique achieves the best possible results with the least amount of trauma and scarring, minimizes potential complications and leads to an optimal recovery process for the patient.
Women with small breasts may be embarrassed by their chest size and envy other women who have large breasts. Overly large breasts, a condition known as macromastia, can also be a source of embarrassment. Unfortunately for women with macromastia, embarrassment is not the only issue they face as overly large breasts also cause pain and discomfort.
I was in such terrible shape when I came to Dr. Kapoor. I had tried everything my primary doctor suggested to get rid of the constant pain in my neck and back from my large breasts but nothing worked. Finally he suggested I consider breast reduction surgery. I started meeting with plastic surgeons in and around Los Angeles and after meeting with Dr. Kapoor I knew I found the right plastic surgeon for me. Not only was I impressed with the amazing results he gave to other women, him and his staff worked so hard to help me get the procedure covered by my insurance. Now I feel like a whole new person. I’m more social, I exercise more, and I feel so much better. I can’t thank Dr. Kapoor and his staff enough for everything they have done for me!
