Case ID: 0560

This 59 year old woman was referred for possible breast reduction surgery because of back pain and neck discomfort due to her large breast size.  At 5' 3" and 164 lbs., she has a calculated body mass index of 29. Her bra size was 36-DD. On exam, she has an underwire chest wall circumference of 36".  She underwent a nipple transposition breast reduction procedure with resection of 565 grams of tissue from the right breast and 630 grams from the left side. She is seen here at 18 months following that surgery, down some 10 lbs. from her pre-operative weight now wearing a 36-C cup bra.
