Breast Reduction

Look Your Best Without Pain and Discomfort

Have you ever been out shopping, saw a blouse that looked great on the hanger, but you just knew it would never fit? What about a bathing suit style that you’ve been longing to wear, but somehow it seemed off limits because you didn’t feel comfortable? If you’ve answered yes to either of these questions, breast reduction surgery may be right for you.

At O’Toole Plastic Surgery, your physical and emotional well-being is our number one priority. We are dedicated to ensuring that our patients feel great and look their best. If you are feeling any negative impact from having large breasts such as back pain, improper posture, rashes, breathing problems, skeletal deformities, and/or mobility issues, breast reduction surgery may provide the relief you need.

Although there are several different types of breast reduction procedures available, Dr. O’Toole specializes in the more progressive vertical breast reduction method, often called the short scar reduction. Like all reduction procedures, this approach removes fat and glandular tissue, tightens the skin and produces smaller, lighter breasts that are in healthier proportion to the rest of your body. Using the short scar reduction method also results in minimal scarring and a more natural, youthful breast form. While not everyone is a candidate for this method, Dr. O’Toole would be able to determine that in his initial consultation with you.

Breast reduction surgery carries one of the highest satisfaction rates of all breast surgeries and the vast majority of our patients have told us they are extremely satisfied with their results. Many have reported that they are now living pain-free and their quality of life has been dramatically improved.

It may surprise you to know that in many cases this procedure is covered by insurance, depending upon the symptoms and extent of the reduction. Dr. O’Toole is on staff at five Pittsburgh area hospitals and accepts most major insurance providers.
