30 year-old who presented with upper back and shoulder pain, as well as some secondary lower back pain. She stated she wore a 34DD bra size, and was interested in a breast reduction, but still wished to be in a fuller C/D cup bra size range, proportionate to her weight (approximately 170', standing 5'8"). I advised her that she was an excellent candidate for a breast reduction, via the inferior pedicle/Wise pattern (anchor scar) technique. During her breast reduction, I removed 392grams of tissue on the right, and 422grams on the left. (Photographs are from approximately one month post-op; swelling should further resolve over the next several weeks and the scars will lighten significantly over the next year.)
