Your Complete Guide to Breast Reduction
and Breast Lifts

Alain Polynice, M.D.
Aloysius Smith, M.D.

Have You Ever Wished Your Breasts Were Smaller?

If so, you probably already know the problems large breasts can cause - social embarrassment, back and neck pain, shoulder pain from bra straps cutting into your shoulders, and heat rashes under your breasts in the summer. Large, heavy breasts can even affect your posture, causing you to gradually stoop.

Fortunately, surgical options are available that can greatly reduce your discomfort. Thousands of women have found relief through breast reduction surgery. Authors Alain Polynice, M.D. and Aloysius Smith, M.D. are board-certified plastic surgeons who have performed hundreds of these breast procedures and now share their expertise and experience with you.

In Your Complete Guide to Breast Reduction and Breast Lifts, they guide you through the entire experience of breast reduction surgery; they also cover another popular procedure - breast lifts. From your first consultation to post-surgical care, they deliver information that will help you decide whether cosmetic breast surgery is for you.

Among the other topics discussed: determining your personal goals, choosing the right surgeon, preparing for surgery, incision placement, anesthesia, and potential risks and complications. They also provide before-and-after photos to help you envision you own potential results.

The Book to Help You Make an Informed Decision about Breast Surgery

If you are interested in breast reduction, you are like millions of women who are concerned about the appearance of their breasts. Whether the changes are due to aging, weight gain, weight loss, or childbirth, large breasts can be burdensome, both physically and emotionally.

Breast reductions and breast lifts can be the most challenging procedures in plastic surgery. No two breasts are alike, and achieving symmetry while keeping the scars at a minimum can be difficult. They can also be the most rewarding operations for both the patient and the surgeon. Often breasts cause significant physical pain and discomfort due to sheer size and weight, but even more important are the emotional and psychological effects of women not feeling comfortable in their own bodies. There is no greater reward for the surgeon than having a patient say she has experienced physical relief and now feel more self-confident and more at ease in her own skin.

If you are considering a breast reduction or a breast lift, we hope this book will guide you and provide with information you need to make the right choice for you.
