Breast reduction is a very common procedure in Dallas, Texas that helps relieve neck, back, and shoulder pain, and enables patients to fit better in clothing and feel better about their overall appearance.


What is a breast reduction?

Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that decreases the size of the breasts along with lifting and reshaping of the breasts. Breast reduction is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures by Dr. Cox at Cox Cosmetic Surgery. Breast reduction can truly be life-changing for women who suffer from neck, back, and shoulder pain from large, heavy breasts. These large breasts often limit women’s ability to be active, to fit in certain clothing, or to feel comfortable in swimsuits or other summer outfits. Breast reduction removes some of this breast tissue resulting in a lighter breast that is less heavy and cumbersome. The nipple is also lifted to a more youthful position and the areola is often decreased in size.

Breast reduction often involves a scar around the areola, down the front of the breast, and often extends into the fold underneath the breast. Over time, these scars fade, and we at Cox Cosmetic Surgery use multiple techniques to help reduce the appearance of scars.

At Cox Cosmetic Surgery, breast reduction is performed under general anesthesia in a hospital or surgery center. Breast reduction is typically an outpatient plastic surgery procedure, meaning our plastic surgery patients can go home the same day after their breast reduction.

Why You Might Consider Breast Reduction Surgery

Women who want smaller, lifted breasts could benefit greatly from a breast reduction. For women with very large breasts, referred to as macromastia or gigantomastia, breast reduction can significantly reduce back, neck, and shoulder pain. Additionally, patients find that breast reduction helps with their overall hygiene, particularly during the hot summer months in Dallas, Texas.

  • Neck pain, back pain, or shoulder pain that is not helped with anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, or specialty support bras
  • Referrals to orthopedic or spine surgeons due to neck or back pain from the weight of breasts
  • Painful grooving in the shoulders
  • Rashes, skin breakdown or infections under the breast or difficulty with hygiene due to large breasts
  • Needing to wear multiple bras to keep breasts in while working out or even on a daily basis

Patients who have undergone breast reduction with the above symptoms are some of the happiest patients at Cox Cosmetic Surgery.

Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery

If you have suffered from symptoms of headaches, neck, back, and shoulder pain or rashes under your breasts, you want relief from these symptoms. Most of our breast reduction patients at Cox Cosmetic Surgery notice a dramatic improvement of these symptoms on day 1. But you shouldn’t only care about relief of the functional issues caused by large breasts. Most women want smaller, perkier breasts that have a good size and shape for their body frame. So many of our breast reduction patients for the first time since they were teenagers can wear the types of clothing they want to wear, fit into swimsuits, or work out without feeling uncomfortable or in pain.

Some of the most rewarding patients we see are teenagers or women in their low- to mid-twenties who have large breasts and as a result, suffered teasing, had difficulty performing in sports, or refrained from participating in regular activities due to pain or embarrassment. These young women’s lives are completely changed by this breast reduction operation, which makes it one of our favorite plastic surgery procedures to perform at Cox Cosmetic Surgery.

What procedures are often performed with a Breast Reduction at Cox Cosmetic Surgery: Most often, liposuction of the upper back/bra line area is added on to breast reduction to help contour the transition from the breast to the back to make it more natural and slimming. This also helps avoid a longer scar that can add to contour deformities under the arm and onto the back.

Breast reduction is also often performed as part of a mommy makeover along with abdominoplasty, liposuction, and vaginal rejuvenation.

What to Expect While Recovering From Breast Reduction Surgery

After your breast reduction procedure, you will be placed in a special post-surgical dressing. You will have a light dressing covering the incisions. Swelling is typical after surgery. You may shower 24 hours after the procedure.

Dr. Joshua Cox employs a multimodal pain regimen to decrease or eliminate your need for narcotic pain medication, which allows our patients to recover quickly and feel more like themselves soon after surgery. Most of our breast reduction patients are ready to go back to work within a week or two. Our team will check up on you often to ensure proper healing. Most of the swelling begins to subside over the initial two weeks and typically resolves by four to six weeks.

We advise that you refrain from strenuous activity or heavy lifting greater than 10 pounds for four to six weeks as you recover.
