BREAST REDUCTION IN BEVERLY HILLS
If you want smaller, shapely and lighter breasts, you may consider breast reduction. Also known as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction is popular among women who consider their breasts to be too big and unwieldy. Take advantage of Dr. Khalil’s skilled surgeries to leave your emotional anxiety behind and become more confident and comfortable.
What is Breast Reduction?
A breast reduction procedure can be performed to create a more proportional chest curvature with your overall body shape, and to alleviate problems with activities, health, and clothing. Like breast augmentation, the procedure can also help achieve symmetry where breasts are not equal in size. Dr. Khalil can change the shape and firmness of the breasts to create a more aesthetic appeal. Nipple surgery may also be performed to reduce areola size. In fact, the breast reduction candidate may require a breast lift to achieve a fully desirable result.
When is a good time for Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction can be performed at any age, but Dr. Khalil recommends waiting until breast development has stopped. Childbirth and breast-feeding may have significant and unpredictable effects on the size and shape of your breasts. Nevertheless, many women decide to undergo breast reduction before having children and feel that they can address any subsequent changes later. If you plan to breast-feed in the future, you should discuss this with Dr. Khalil. During the consultation, you will be asked about your desired breast size as well as anything else about your breasts that you would like to see improved. This will help Dr. Khalil understand your expectations and determine whether they realistically can be achieved. If you have one or more of the following conditions, you may be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery: breasts that are too large in proportion to your body frame, heavy, pendulous breasts with nipples and areolas that point downward, one breast is significantly larger than the other, back, neck or shoulder pain caused by the weight of your breasts, skin irritation beneath your breasts, indentations in your shoulders from tight bra straps, restriction of physical activity due to the size and weight of your breasts, and dissatisfaction or self-consciousness about the largeness of your breasts.
For any or all of these reasons, breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) is commonly sought out by large-breasted women. This procedure also helps women with normal-sized but sagging breasts when other breast augmentation procedures are not practical.

Breast Reduction for Men (Gynecomastia)
Male breast reduction, also known as male breast surgery (gynecomastia) reduces enlarged breasts in men and gives a flatter, more traditionally masculine contoured look. The surgery removes excess fatty deposits, glandular tissue and also corrects asymmetry among the two breasts. Male breast reduction has gained traction as enlarged breasts is a fairly common occurrence among men. The outcome is usually significant and can be a significant confidence booster among men who are self conscious about their breast overdevelopment.
