This is a 60 year old woman referred by her chiropractor for possible breast reduction surgery.  She has had two previous pregnancies with children now grown.  At 5' 7" and 173 lbs., she has a calculated body mass index of 27.  She was wearing a 36-DD cup bra.  On exam, the underwire chest wall measurement was 33".  She underwent a breast reduction procedure using a free nipple graft technique with removal of 1100+ grams from each breast.  That is slightly less than 5 lbs. total.  She is seen here at four months following that surgery now wearing a 36-C cup bra.
