Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts. Breast size is affected by puberty, pregnancy, weight changes and menopause. There are many different techniques used for breast reduction. During your consultation, Dr. Yegiyants will listen to your concerns, evaluate your breast and chest anatomy and recommend the best technique to achieve your desired outcome, with the least amount of scarring. Dr. Yegiyants has done numerous breast reductions using all available techniques and has published on the newer technique of the medial pedicle, vertical reduction that leaves less scarring and has longer lasting result. The publication on the technique and the results in the prestigious white journal of the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery has earned her the award of Best Breast Paper in 2014.
