Breast reduction surgery is usually considered to be a cosmetic procedure, but for many women with larger breasts, it can have incredible medical benefits. Patients who experience chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain as a result of the weight of larger breasts often report feeling a profound sense of freedom and relief after breast reduction surgery. Breast reduction surgery can give women their confidence back, as they’re able to sleep, exercise, and enjoy life without feeling as though they’re in constant pain.


The best candidates for breast reduction surgery are women who have large breasts that are causing them significant or chronic body pain. Most candidates report feeling constant back, neck, and shoulder pain, or experiencing frequent rashes underneath their breasts. Candidates often remark feeling limited by their large breasts, especially when it comes to sleep, exercising, or even just wearing their favorite shirts.
To ensure an uneventful recovery, it is necessary to be “smoke-free” for three to four weeks prior to surgery and three weeks after surgery, as nicotine significantly interferes with healing.

Dr. Vitolo understands the thoughtful decision-making that patients go through when choosing to undergo breast reduction surgery. After all, it’s not an easy decision to make. But patients who have breast reduction surgery feel its life-changing benefits almost right away, with many women remarking that they feel a profound sense of physical and emotional relief immediately after surgery.

Breast Reduction is usually a surgical procedure that results in scarring on the breasts, but modern techniques can limit the extent of the scars, and result in cosmetically-acceptable results.

In certain cases, breast reduction can be accomplished by liposuction, consequently, the scar is limited to a half-inch scar on each breast. This procedure is dependent on the amount of ptosis (droop) and the volume of the reduction desired.

Dr. Vitolo’s approach to breast reduction surgery starts during the consultation process, where he’ll work closely with you to understand your desired goals from the procedure. Over the course of the consultation, Dr. Vitolo can help shape your expectations regarding what the surgery is like, how soon you’ll experience results, and what your breast reduction will ultimately look like.

Your breast reduction surgery will be performed in Dr. Vitolo’s AAAASF Certified, state of the art ambulatory surgical facility. Your experience will be “all about you!” where you will be the only patient during your time in the facility. Dr. Vitolo and his Board-Certified anesthesiologist, RNs and technicians will ensure that you will be in a caring safe environment designed to make your experience a memorable one.

All post-operative and follow-up visits are included in the surgical fee, as are yearly visits if you so desire.

There is some downtime associated with breast reduction surgery. Most patients should expect to take about a week off from work. During this time, you’ll need to wear a supportive bra to help stabilize your breasts as you heal. You should be able to return to work after this first week of recovery, although we recommend waiting three to four weeks before returning to any strenuous physical activity.


You’ll see results right away, which can feel absolutely incredible if you’ve been suffering from physical pain as a result of your large breasts. Results include smaller and lifted breasts that better fit your body type, as well as your lifestyle.
