For years, you’ve lived with large breasts that have drawn unwanted attention, held you back from certain activities, limited your clothing options and made you feel self-conscious. It’s only natural that you would be thinking about a breast reduction procedure. Denver, Colorado plastic surgeon Dr. Frank Campanile can help you feel more comfortable and enjoy a wider range of activities.
A breast reduction can help you relieve shoulder pain, improve posture, and eliminate the skin irritations that can occur around bra strap indentations and below the folds of the breasts. Many of our Denver breast reduction patients also find that it is much easier to jog and engage in other exercise activities. The procedure also balances out your appearance from head to toe and gives you more flexibility when shopping for tops, swimsuits and dresses.

A Breast Reduction Tailored for You
Dr. Campanile specializes in breast reduction surgery. Many of our Denver, Colorado patients know that they would like smaller breasts, but aren’t sure how small to go or what they will look like after the procedure. We understand, and that’s why Dr. Campanile takes the time during each consultation to perform a detailed physical examination before making a recommendation regarding post-surgical breast size. He’ll talk with you about the options and show you case photos of other patients who have undergone similar reductions. In addition, Dr. Campanile offers newer techniques such as the lollipop incision method that greatly reduces scarring after surgery. Our goal is to help you make a smart decision about your new breast size and shape.
Enhancements Worth Considering
A breast reduction procedure removes breast tissue, skin and excess fat to reshape the breasts for better overall balance and increased comfort. In addition to reducing the size of the breasts, the procedure also lifts the breasts for improved position and contour. Dr. Campanile is careful to minimize the number of incisions.
To begin breast reduction surgery, Dr. Campanile makes a lollipop or anchor-shaped incision on the lower part of the breast and around the areola. Through this incision, he is able to remove excess fat tissue, along with glandular tissue. Because the breast volume is decreased, excess skin needs to be trimmed away and in many cases the nipple and areola will need to be repositioned on the breast.
Most of our patients take a week to ten days after surgery before they are ready for normal activities, with exercise and more strenuous activities added in after about three to four weeks. As with a breast lift, some scarring on the breasts themselves will remain following the procedure, but scars should lighten over time with proper post-surgical care.
