What are the Benefits of Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction is typically labeled as a cosmetic procedure. But it is true benefits go well beyond aesthetics.
If you’re troubled by large or pendulous breasts, a reduction can offer welcome relief from back or neck pain, as well as uncomfortable skin irritation along bra strap areas.
When skillfully performed by Dr. Ellen Mahony, a breast reduction surgery at her Westport and Fairfield, Connecticut-area practice can relieve these symptoms, and give you (finally!) a proportionate, shapely figure that is a better reflection of you … and infinitely more comfortable.*
Imagine being free of pain, enjoying greater comfort while exercising, and expanding your options when shopping for shirts and tops that flatter your figure.
What Happens During a Breast Reduction?
During a Westport CT breast reduction procedure (or “reduction mammaplasty,” as it’s known), Dr. Mahony removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts. The areola (darker skin around the nipple) can also be resized. There are a variety of ways to achieve this, and together, you and Dr. Mahony will discuss them in detail and determine which best meets your unique needs. For example, a breast reduction is a common part of a Menopause Makeover or Mommy Makeover.
During your consultation with Dr. Mahony, she’ll take the time to listen to your concerns. Then she’ll explain how your breast reduction in Westport CT will be performed, and what you should expect during your recovery period.
And after your procedure, you’ll discover a new freedom in your everyday activities that you may not have thought possible before!*

ASK DR. MAHONY
No, in fact it sounds like it’s the perfect operation for you! We do require the signature of a consenting adult, in addition to yours, until the age of 21. I think it will be liberating for you to feel less burdened by heavy breasts. You’ll find you have the freedom to exercise and find clothes that fit- without the constant consideration of your heavy chest. We’ll have plenty to discuss including what to expect with pregnancy or breastfeeding in the future.
The recovery period is in the range of 5-7 days following breast reduction. Because breast reduction surgery does not disrupt muscle, the discomfort our patient’s have is very well tolerated. Another reason that our patient’s don’t complain about a high level of post op pain is because their breasts are well supported by a post surgical bra. As testimony to this fact, many of our patient’s only use the pain meds for the first 24 hours. Another piece of good news is that most women report immediate relief from issues of chronic neck, back and shoulder pain. Reducing that heavy front side weight seems to be almost miraculous!There is approximately a 2-3 week period of time following surgery that we ask our patient’s to refrain from strenuous exercise to avoid any post surgical complications like bleeding.
