This patient is a 23-year-old female with complaints of heavy breasts and associated back, neck and shoulder pain. She also was concerned with the lateral positioning of the nipple-areolar complexes on the breast mounds.  During the consultation, the right breast was noted to be larger than the left breast.  She underwent an anchor pattern breast reduction with an inferior pedicle.  650 grams of breast tissue was removed from the right breast and 550 grams was removed from the left breast.
