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.
Benefits of a breast reduction include:
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.
Dr. Haydon created the body I always wanted. I had a breast reduction, liposuction and a tummy tuck. He and his staff were caring, knowledgeable and thoughtful throughout my process. He explained that the “tummy tuck incision will be below your bikini line.” I told him I was approaching 60 and my bikini days are over. Let’s just say that summer I was in a bikini looking hot! Thank you Dr. Haydon and Staff!
