Breast Reduction is a common surgical solution for problems caused by large, drooping (ptotic) breasts (also called breast hypertrophy), which can affect women of all ages and occur amongst those in good physical shape. This can also lead to neck and back pain as the nerves are stretched, forcing your posture to compensate for the strain placed on your back muscles and bones. Breast reduction can also refine the size and shape of your breasts. After this surgery, your breasts will potentially be more proportional to the rest of your body and even have an upward lift.
Our female patients who undergo can enjoy the following benefits from getting a Breast Reduction in Hawaii:
The best candidate for a Hawaii Breast Reduction is any woman dealing with the following issues:
Breast reduction can be performed at any age, however, we strongly encourage you to wait until your breasts are fully developed before looking into the surgery. This usually occurs between the ages of 18 and 23. You should be in overall good health, a nonsmoker, and maintain realistic expectations for your procedure results.
Keep in mind that childbirth and breastfeeding can affect the size and shape of your breasts, but many women decide to undergo breast reduction before having children and feel that they can address any subsequent changes later. If you are planning on becoming pregnant and breastfeeding in the future, please mention it to Dr. Schlesinger during your consultation.
If you are interested in getting a Breast Reduction in Hawaii, then you should contact our office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Larry Schlesinger. When you come in for your appointment, you will meet with Dr. Schlesinger who will perform an evaluation of your breasts, address questions or concerns you may have, and discuss your goals for the procedure. He will also ask you about your medical history, which is very important to be open and honest with him because as he creates your surgical plan, the information you provide allows him to make safe and educated decisions. Once your plan is made and you agree with the assessment, our Patient Coordinator can help you schedule your surgical date. You will also be provided with instructions to follow before coming in that will promote a healthy and successful surgery.
Since it is a surgical procedure, you need to carefully weigh your decision to undergo breast reduction. The procedure involves general anesthesia, as well as incisions through which the surgeon will remove excess breast tissue and fat. In some cases, your nipples will be repositioned so that they sit in a higher, more youthful location on your new, smaller breasts.
Often, Dr. Schlesinger prefers to perform a liposuction breast reduction. Like traditional liposuction, this procedure inserts a tube into each of your breasts and excess fat and breast tissue will be drawn out through this tube. This alternate procedure offers a faster recovery time with less scarring, but it is not for everyone. To learn which breast reduction method is best for you, please schedule an initial consultation.
You will notice soon after the surgery that your results are visible. Your breasts will be lighter and smaller than before, and once your recovery is complete, you will notice that the discomfort associated with large breasts is gone. You should also be able to fit into smaller, more attractive blouses and halter tops. As with any cosmetic procedure, there is some pain in the days following breast reduction. We advise all of our Honolulu breast reduction patients to avoid strenuous activity for two weeks following surgery. After that, they can fully appreciate the results of the procedure.

Everything went well and I am very pleased with my results. Process from beginning to end was great. Staff showed compassion and skill. Surgeon showed great follow-up care with more than just one visit.
At seven weeks post op……I can say I’m pretty happy with my revision! They have settled well and look so natural. I’m so glad it finally happened. Now on to my 50 year high school reunion!! I wonder if anyone will notice?
I love the staff, the office, the nurses and everything about Dr. Schlesinger!!! He is very knowledgeable about the procedures and makes sure you are as well. Hands down the best experience I’ve had with minimal down time after my procedure.
By far the best plastic surgeon, I mean his work is Hollywood perfection. Day 1 post-op I looked in the mirror and couldn’t believe my eyes, Dr. Schlesinger completely transformed my body. I was already 100% satisfied with my body even with all the swelling. He’s very dedicated to his work and enjoys changing people’s lives. His staff is very sweet and professional. Thank you for all that you do!
Dr. Schlesinger is awesome. Had some work done and he exceeded my expectations, more than happy. Staff were very friendly and approachable. Larry was always available via phone call to address any concerns or questions. Dr. Schlesinger and his team are the best!
Being a man and having gynecomastia can be very embarrassing but his office and staff always made me feel very comfortable about the procedure that I needed to have done. It’s been a few months since my surgery and I’m very happy with the results, I can no longer feel embarrassed about taking off my shirt or going to the beach. The psychological relief has made all the difference in the world. Thank you Dr Schlesinger.
