• Very large breasts (breast hypertrophy) can occur in the teenage years or develop later in life after child bearing.
  • In some women the breast hypertrophy can cause pain in the neck, shoulders and back and can limit your physical activities as well as make it difficult to buy clothing.
  • Dr. Motoki offers breast reduction plastic surgery in our Salt Lake City, Utah office that can make your life easier.

Most women who are experiencing neck, back and shoulder pain associated with mammary hypertrophy are initially treated with anti-inflammatory medications, pain medications and physical therapy. If your pain is not relieved by these measures then you may be a candidate for breast reduction surgery. Board certified plastic surgeon, David S. Motoki, M.D. can help provide you options in order to get you the best results.

Breast reduction surgery has been shown to effectively relieve or reduce pain in most women who do not respond to non-surgical treatment measures. The amount of breast tissue that must be removed is calculated at your initial consultation in our office and submitted to your health insurance carrier for pre-approval. This amount of tissue is the minimum amount that must be removed in order to relieve your pain and potentially be covered by your insurance.   If you are not utilizing insurance for breast reduction surgery, you are not subjected to the same criteria and this surgery would be performed primarily for cosmetic improvement.

For your breasts to become smaller and firmer, breast reduction surgery is the perfect option for you. Our certified surgeon, Dr. David Motoki is happy to discuss this procedure with you. Without the excessive weight of large breasts, playing sports and physical activity, is much more enjoyable.

The incisions from your reduction surgery will heal and fade over time. It is important to know that the incision lines will be permanently visible; some people may see this more than others. The incisions for breast reduction can be in locations easily hidden by clothing.

Breast reduction surgery is known to make a dramatic change in an individuals appearance. For this reason being, it may take some time to adjust to your new body image. Most women can become comfortable with their smaller breasts and are happy with the results of surgery. 

  • The level of patient satisfaction resulting from breast reduction surgery is among the highest of any plastic surgery procedure.
  • Our goal is to relieve your pain and allow you to live a more active lifestyle and reduction surgery can be performed to help achieve this for you!
