Breast Reduction Surgery with Allyson B. Maske, M.D.
Located at our Northside Location in Atlanta, GA.
Dr. Allyson Maske performs Atlanta breast reduction surgery to remedy the physical symptoms of excess breast tissue of both men and women. During breast reduction, Dr. Maske excises the excess tissue and repositions the nipple to a more appropriate placement. Ideal candidates for cosmetic breast reduction surgery are those individuals who suffer from back or neck pain as a result of the added weight of breast tissue or those who have trouble finding suitable clothing to fit their chest in proportion with the rest of their body.
Dr. Maske considers a patient’s overall body proportion and investigates the physical and emotional motivators for breast reduction surgery during cosmetic surgery consultation. Often, Atlanta cosmetic breast surgery patients have breast reduction surgery in conjunction with a breast lift (mastopexy) to give their newly reshaped breasts a lift.

Is it safe to perform a breast reduction in combination with other plastic surgery procedures?
Combination plastic surgery procedures have grown extremely popular because they allow patients to address multiple areas of concern and achieve more comprehensive results with reduced downtime and hospital costs. A Mommy Makeover, for example, is an extremely popular procedure that combines a breast reduction (or some other form of breast surgery) with an abdominoplasty and liposuction to help improve or even reverse the changes that occur in a woman’s body as a result of pregnancy and breast feeding. Because breast reduction is specifically designed to help treat and reduce excess breast tissue and sagging skin, it also combines well with other post-bariatric body contouring procedures, like arm lifts and thigh lifts, as well.
How old do I need to be before I can have a breast reduction?
Over the past several years, breast reduction procedures have become increasingly popular among younger women, often because involvement in sports or other physical activities can be hindered by disproportionately large breasts or because larger breasts can place significant strain on the back and shoulders. Breast reduction surgery can be safely performed on women in their teens, and younger patients often require shorter post-surgical recovery times because younger tissue will generally heal more quickly than older tissue. However, since patients in this age group can still be growing, it is important to seek the advice of a board certified plastic surgeon with experience treating younger patients. As with all pediatric plastic surgery procedures, the decision to proceed should always include a thorough and frank discussion between the patient, his or her parents, and the plastic surgeon.
