Breast Reduction

pictures-breastreduc2At the practice of David A. Feldmar, M.D., we receive many inquiries regarding a woman’s options for breast augmentation. A woman’s breasts are often one of the most sensitive areas on her body, as well as an essential element of her female identity. While voluptuous breasts are often considered the feminine ideal, in some cases, breasts are overly large for a woman’s frame, causing back, neck or shoulder pain, or restricting physical activity. In these cases, a woman might undergo a breast reduction.

Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body. It can also alleviate the discomfort and potential back problems that often correlate with overly large breasts. If one of your breasts is significantly larger than the other, or you’re seeking a breast reduction because you are self-conscious about the largeness or your breasts, Los Angeles-based surgeon Dr. Feldmar is the ideal surgeon for your needs.

A graduate of Finch University at the Chicago Medical School, Dr. Feldmar has since enjoyed a celebrated tenure as Chief Resident in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the renowned Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Today, the double board certified surgeon offers his expertise to patients and residents in general and plastic reconstructive surgery at Cedars-Sinai and St. John’s Medical Center in Santa Monica.

With such an illustrious career and breadth of experience, it comes as no surprise that Dr. Feldmar is one of the most sought-after surgeons for breast augmentation surgeries, ranging from enlargement and lift, to reduction and even breast reconstruction. When a woman has undergone a mastectomy, a breast reconstruction can prove exceptionally effective in restoring the natural, beautiful look of the breast.

While breast reconstruction is frequently covered by medical insurance, when undergoing a breast reduction, Los Angeles patients of Dr. Feldmar also sometimes find that insurance coverage is available for their surgery. Of course, many factors determine eligibility, including the specific terms of the insurance policy and the amount of breast tissue to be removed. At Dr. Feldmar’s office, a medical professional will always be available to discuss and determine eligibility and financial concerns one might have when undergoing any sort ofbreast augmentation. Once financial considerations are discussed, in many cases patients are surprised at how reasonable the cost of the surgery is.

If you’re looking to undergo a breast augmentation such as reduction, reconstruction or breast lift, Los Angeles surgeon Dr. Feldmar will bring the first-rate surgical skills and an artist’s sense of aesthetic beauty to your procedure. Contact the offices of David A. Feldmar, M.D. today and you’ll be put in touch with a medical professional who is eager to assist you in achieving all your aesthetic goals.
