Breast Reduction


It is a surgical procedure that aims at reducing excess breast volume as well as lifting the breasts to a higher location for a more youthful appearance. Several techniques are available to perform this surgery including liposuction, inverted “T” and “lollipop” reduction.

Dr. Alahdab is competent in all those techniques and will select the technique that will give YOU the best results unlike other surgeons that are only comfortable with one method of performing the surgery.


The procedure is done under general anesthetic.

Surgery Duration

Typical duration is 3 hours. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis.

Expected Recovery

Pain postoperatively is usually mild. No suture removal is necessary. Expect to be back to work after 7 days. A specialty bra needs to be worn for a month.

The postoperative progress after any surgery depends on your body’s response and a dynamic treatment plan will be implemented based on how you are healing.
