Having large breasts that are clearly disproportionately large for your frame can be a painful experience for some. The weight of oversized breasts can cause neck and back pain that prevents you from living the life you want. The discomfort with activity or inability to exercise and take part in activities you love is reason to consider a breast reduction surgery. At Austin Plastic Surgery Institute & Skin Care Clinic, you work directly with Dr. Haydon, a top plastic surgeon in the Greater Austin area, to create a custom size and contour for your new breasts. Our caring team takes the time to listen to your goals to develop a look that will leave you confident and a breast size that will allow you to live your best life. In some cases, your breast reduction may be covered in your insurance.
For women with large breasts, especially petite women, the physical burden of carrying the extra weight can be daunting. There are also cosmetic reasons you may consider the procedure. For women who are unhappy about the size or contour of their breasts, a reduction offers the opportunity to reshape the area.

A breast reduction surgery with Dr. Haydon gives women the opportunity to choose the best-fit shape and size breast they are most comfortable with.

Dr. Haydon uses two separate techniques to close the breast after the excess skin and breast gland is removed. The most popular is the circumvertical pattern with a lollipop (AKA short scar) closure while the other is the Wise pattern that results in an anchor closure.
Each technique has advantages and disadvantages and this will be explained during your consultation. Scarring from breast reduction surgery is normally minimal. You will be given recommendations for scar treatment gels and sometimes sheeting to optimize your short and long-term results. When the reduction is performed, Dr. Haydon will also lift the breasts, giving you a more proportionate, youthful appearance.
At age 60 I decided to have a breast reduction and lift. Dr Wilder performed the procedure. To say I was amazed and delighted is an understatement! Never thought I could have ‘perky’ ones again! People keep telling me I look 10 years younger and it’s all because I no longer have the ‘matronly bosom’ deal going on anymore. Dr Wilders staff is SO pleasant and accommodating. Experience from beginning to end has exceeded my expectations. I’d give 6 stars if I could!
