This 28-year-old mom of 1, was complaining of shoulder & back pain due to her breasts. She would like to be much smaller. Her left side was larger preop, which is very common. She opted to undergo a Wise Pattern breast reduction.
A tool called the “cookie cutter” was used around the areola. The breast tissue removed from the right side weighed 1542gm and the left side weighed 1995gm. This translates to the right side weighing almost 3.5 lbs. & left side weighing almost 4.5 lbs.; to total almost 8 pounds of breast tissue removed!
This patient is only 3 months post-op & loving the weight off her shoulders! She informed us that she is excited to work out without any issues & is loving her new life!
