Breast Reduction

Breast reduction can help bring your breasts in proportion to the rest of your body while relieving back and other physical discomfort.

Serving Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, and the rest of Northern Colorado and Wyoming, Dr. Gonyon offers breast reduction surgery to help you alleviate back pain and make your body more proportional.


If you develop breasts that are too large for your frame, breast reduction surgery can help bring your breasts into proportion with the rest of your body, while relieving physical discomfort. Smaller breasts can increase your clothing options, and your ability to pursue activities you enjoy.

The Breast Reduction Procedure


A breast reduction will remove excess fat, glandular tissue and skin from your breasts. There are a number of techniques and incision options that may be considered for your particular procedure. Northern Colorado board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Denis Gonyon will make a careful assessment of your breasts at your initial consultation to determine what method will best meet your needs.

Breast Reduction SurgeryDepending on the size and weight of your breasts, your procedure may resemble typical incisions used for a breast lift. Typically, for much larger breasts, Dr. Gonyon will choose the Inverted-T or Anchor incision, which includes an oval made around the areola, extends vertically down the breast to the fold and continues horizontally upward along the breast fold in an inverted T-pattern. This incision pattern allows Dr.Gonyon to remove excess breast tissue, reposition your nipple in a higher location, and tighten the remaining skin around your firmer, smaller breast.

It is also common for this procedure to include liposuction to increase the amount of fat and glandular tissue removed without having to make larger incisions.

Breast Reduction Frequently Asked Questions


What is breast reduction?

Breast reduction is a plastic surgery procedure designed to reduce the size of your breasts or make your breasts symmetrical and proportionate with your body.

Am I a candidate for breast reduction?

If you believe your breasts appear too big or pendulous for your build, or if you are suffering back, neck or shoulder pain caused by overly heavy breasts, you may be a candidate for breast reduction. Your personal consultation with board-certified Northern Colorado plastic surgeon Dr. Denis Gonyon will determine if breast reduction is the right procedure for you.

What are the benefits of breast reduction?

If you have overly large breasts, a breast reduction can help breasts become more proportionate with your frame as well as relieve back pain, neck pain, shoulder discomfort, skin irritation and posture issues often associated with larger, heavier breasts.

Should I also have a breast lift with a breast reduction?

For many women, a breast lift is a complementary procedure to a breast reduction, and often times is included when your breast reduction is performed. A breast reduction will remove excess tissue and provide symmetry, while a breast lift can give your breasts a higher position and more youthful profile.

Is breast reduction only for women?

No. Many men suffer from a condition known as gynecomastia, which results in enlarged breasts. Male breast reduction is an effective and increasingly popular plastic surgery procedure for men who experience overdevelopment of the mammary glands.
