This young woman complained of large, asymmetric, drooping breasts, as well as oversized areolae. After researching her options, this 22-year-old female patient visited us for a consultation.

At 5'3" and 140 pounds, this woman had physical difficulties caused by her large breasts. She suffered from moderate scoliosis, exacerbated by her large breasts. Her right breast demonstrated class III ptosis, or sagging. In her "before" photos, you can see that her right breast hung about 2 centimeters lower than her left.

In her consultation, she reported that she had been struggling with large breasts since age 12. This has made her very self-conscious of her breasts: She felt it added unnecessary pressure to social situations. She found herself continually adjusting her bra and clothing to find a comfortable position and keep her cleavage covered. She felt that her large breasts hid her otherwise petite frame. 

She also enjoys playing sports and working out -- but found it difficult to do certain activities or hold certain yoga positions due to the size and weight of breasts. She also mentioned struggling to find tops that fit both her breasts and small torso.

After her consultation, the patient decided to move forward with the recommended bilateral breast reduction with areola reduction in our Champaign surgery facility. Dr. Castillo reduced her breasts from 950cc on the right and 900cc on the left to 450cc on both sides. He moved the nipple-areolar complexes up to more pleasing positions. He reduced the circumferences of the areolae, making them proportionate to the new breast size.

In her "after" photos, taken 12 weeks after surgery, you can see that her breasts are now equal in volume and shape, with symmetrical areola placements. Her incisions are still slightly red but nearly invisible in most areas. They will continue to fade in the months that follow.

In her follow-up visits, this patient said she has never been happier with a decision she has made. She shared that the surgery has changed her life in a significant way, improving her overall quality of life. She now enjoys shopping for dresses and bras and is very confident in her new breast shape and size. She is pleased that her breasts now are proportionate for a fit, 22-year-old woman of her size and weight. She has also lost 10 pounds since the surgery, because workouts are now much less frustrating.
