What are the benefits of breast reduction surgery?

There are two major benefits of breast reduction surgery. From a purely physical point, a patient with very large breasts is likely to suffer from shoulder, back and neck pain, and breast reduction surgery can help alleviate that pain. The second benefit of breast reduction surgery is the improvement in the aesthetics or physical appearance of the patient.

The surgery helps to improve the shape and size of the breast and it is lifted up to an appropriate position, improving the aesthetics of the breasts substantially. Patients with sagging breasts may have to wear a very tight bra to support their breasts. But following breast reduction surgery, many patients do not even need to wear a bra, because they will have breasts that look much nicer in their clothes, bikinis or bathing suits.

Breast reduction also allows the patient to become more physically active and participate in sports or other physically exacting situations. Very large breasts tend to pose a hindrance to many physical activities, so the patient feels more free, flexible and lighter following the surgery.

Firm and younger looking breasts following the surgery can also have a substantial positive impact on the patient’s self-esteem and personality. Many patients feel happier and attain a more positive outlook about life. They can experience an improvement in their performance at home as well as at work. Their confidence in their own body improves and they conduct themselves more comfortably in social settings.

However, it is important to understand that the benefits of breast reduction surgery can last for a long period of time only if the patient maintains a balanced diet, active lifestyle and regular fitness and exercise. In the absence of a healthy and active lifestyle, it may not be possible to enjoy the benefits of the surgery for very long. Pregnancy after the surgery may also lead to weight gain around the breast area in some cases.

    Dr. Kwan is by far the most talented surgeon I have EVER crossed paths with. I came to Dr. Kwan after an under eye fat transplant, performed 'by another' plastic surgeon, which deformed my face. It was only until I was under Dr.Kwan's care that the deformity was corrected. Dr. Kwan literally gave me back my beauty. This was a priceless feeling. That was about 4 years ago, I can assure you ever since- Dr. Kwan is the ONLY plastic surgeon I trust my face and body to. I look forward to my body contouring procedure coming up in a few weeks!! :)

    The staff treated me very kindly, with respect and genuine smiles. Dr Kwan is a real professional in my opinion. He took the time to listen to my story, addressed my concerns and took his time to walk me through the process and give me his opinion and explanation on his recommendation. I had my surgery in his practice and we went over everything again before I met up with the anesthesiologist, who was equally as nice and professional as everyone else at his practice. We started counting bikes ... and after bike #6 I fell a sleep. When I woke up, he was there to tell me I did great and before I knew it I was in a taxi cab back home with my best friend who came to pick me up. So I don't know if this is typical, but I had no pain whatsoever after the surgery. . I am very very happy with the results. Dr Kwan did an amazing job and I couldn't be more pleased.

    I was involved in an automobile accident last May, 2013. The outcome from the emergency room left me with 5 stitches on the bridge of my nose, and the tip of my nose was missing due to the severe impact of the accident. I called and scheduled an appointment to visit Dr. Kwan so he could assess my nose. Upon arriving to the office, I was immediately impressed with the facility, service, and professionalism of his staff. Dr. Kwan met with me and examined my nose and in detail, he explained the approach he would take in order to get my nose like brand new again.On the day of my surgery, I was met by Dr Kwan, who performed the surgery, himself. His Anesthesiologist was very informative and professional as well. The outcome of Phase 1 was a success. In addition to that, the staff even called my medication into the pharmacy that way it would be ready as soon as I left the office. My nose is 98% back to normal, I now look forward to Phase 2 to be completed. After that procedure is done I am positive my nose will look absolutely perfect and I will be back to my confident self again. Thanks Dr Kwan and Staff.

    I have had several surgeries with Dr Kwan, and would recommend him highly. Liposuction of abdomen and love handles came out smooth. Upper eyelids look younger and refreshed, and the Basal Cell Cancer he cut out of my nose is not even visible, despite the fact that it was right along the rim of my left nostril.

    I have been using Dr Kwan for over 10 years now. I have had many different procedures and all of them have turned out great. One of the breast augmentations had a crimp in the left breast and he had no problem going in to revise it to assure my satisfaction. I have always liked the way he answers each of my concerns and we go over everything for each procedure I've done several times to assure we are on the same page :) Take a list of any questions or concerns and I guarantee you will love your results no matter what procedure he is doing for you! .
