Breast Reduction in Beverly Hills
Enhance Your Natural Beauty with a Breast Reduction
Many women consult Dr. David Sayah about breast reduction surgery at his Beverly Hills plastic surgery office. Because of overly large or sagging breasts, women may experience neck and shoulder pain, deep grooves in the shoulders from brassiere straps, skin rashes, and increased menstrual discomfort. In addition, these patients often experience emotional distress when people thoughtlessly comment on the size of their breasts. Other women are bothered by sagging breasts, and while the size of their breasts may be acceptable, the undesirable shape makes them feel unattractive.
Enlarged breasts are often the result of factors such as:
- Hereditary factors or weight gain
- Hormones also play a part in some cases where the breast tissue is more sensitive than normal to certain female hormones.
Sagging breasts result from poor skin tone, stretching of ligaments during pregnancy and breast-feeding, weight changes, heredity, and the aging process. Either of these conditions can be corrected with the same basic operative procedure, and thousands of women each year undergo successful surgical alteration of their breasts.

Your First Visit
During your initial consultation, you will be encouraged to discuss your
desires, fears, expectations and goals. In addition to reducing breast
size, Dr. Sayah will strive to create a more aesthetically pleasing breast
by improving shape and balance and creating breasts that are proportional
to your chest and shoulders.*
To learn more about breast reduction surgery in Beverly Hills, or to schedule an appointment, request a consultation and let our friendly staff help guide you. No woman has breasts perfectly symmetrical in volume, shape or position, but Dr. Sayah can help improve breast symmetry in addition to a more youthful appearance (firm breasts with proper uplift).*
A shapelier breast (lifted and reduced in size) is created by elevating the nipple (which normally remains connected to its nerve and blood supply) to a more acceptable position. If the nipple is enlarged, its size is reduced. The breast and torso are measured to determine the amount of reduction required, and a pattern is drawn on the breast. If necessary, the internal breast tissue is reduced and molded into a normal size and shape. During uplift operations, a small implant may sometimes be placed to add extra support and shape to the breast. Dr. Sayah will discuss this with you before surgery.*
New techniques in plastic surgery aim to reduce the length of incisions and scars in performing breast lifts and reductions. In traditional techniques, the final incision lines are made around the areola, down the bottom center, and horizontally under the breast, resulting in an “anchor scar.” Dr. Sayah uses more modern methods that limit the incisions to either just around the areola (small circular scar) or around the areola and down the center of the breast, resulting in a “lollipop scar.” In some cases, a significant breast reduction can be achieved by sculpting the breast using liposuction. All incisions are closed in multiple layers in order to minimize widening of the scars.
A comfortable bandage is fitted after surgery and worn for 48 hours. We recommend continued support of the breasts with a well-fitted, comfortable bra to prevent sagging. A small drain may be used to collect fluid for a day or two after the procedure to help decrease swelling and discomfort.
