Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is the single best way to attain relief from the physical and psychological challenges of heavy, oversized breasts. The procedure — which removes excess tissue, fat and skin, and brings your breasts into better proportion with the rest of the body —  has greatly improved the quality of life for many of Dr. Sajjadian’s patients. If you’re tired of feeling physically or mentally inhibited by large breasts, you should consider consulting with Orange County’s breast reduction surgeon of choice. It is clear from his surgical record that Dr. Sajjadian has the skills and experience to produce great results.

Preparing for Breast Reduction

Dr. Sajjadian will evaluate you as a candidate for breast reduction during a consultation. He will examine your breasts and ask you about any pain (physical or emotional) that your large breasts cause you. He will also ask you about your desired breast size and shape. Based on this information, he will draw up a surgical plan that takes into account your personal needs and goals. Dr. Sajjadian will explain the surgery in detail and go over what to expect during and after the procedure.

To prepare for your surgery, Dr. Sajjadian will provide detailed instructions. These will include avoiding aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications, quitting smoking, limiting alcohol consumption and generally following healthy lifestyle habits up until your day of surgery. He may also ask you to get a pre-operative mammogram. If you have questions about any of the pre-operative instructions, we would be happy to answer them.

Day of Surgery: What to Expect

Breast reduction in Newport Beach is performed on an outpatient basis under anesthesia. You will not feel anything during the surgery, which takes one to two hours on average.

Dr. Sajjadian will make the surgical incisions encircling the areola and nipple. Through the incisions, he will remove excess breast tissue and skin; he may leave the nipples in position or move them higher on the breast. When Dr. Sajjadian is finished making the surgical modifications, he will close the incisions with sutures and bandage the breasts. He will place a support garment around the breasts to help them heal.

Breast Reduction Recovery

You will be released to go home shortly after your procedure. During the first few days of your recovery, your breasts may be sore, swollen, tender or numb; these side effects will subside over time. You should rest as much as possible, avoiding any bending, lifting or straining. Gentle walking is encouraged. Dr. Sajjadian will schedule several follow-up visits to check your healing progress and advise when it is safe to return to work, school, exercise and your normal routine.

Everyone heals at a different pace. It’s important to listen to your body and not push yourself to return to work or school until you’re ready.


“I have worked out all my life, and after 2 children, I couldn’t work off the fat despite consistent exercise. I had never had a surgery like this before. When I came to Dr. Sajjadian, he instantly made me feel comfortable. Almost 4 months later I feel happier and I see the results, with minimal scarring. My stomach looks like it did before I was pregnant.”

“Dr. Sajjadian takes the time to make sure you understand what he’s doing and why. He’s a conservative doctor who doesn’t like to rush thing, because he wants the best results for you as possible. He’s kind, caring, and thorough. I would recommend Dr. Sajjadian to anyone who is interested in considering getting a tummy tuck.”

“I trusted Dr. Sajjadian as I was able to see some of his cases beforehand, and the results were amazing. The Dr. made me very comfortable with what I wanted done. When it came to the surgery, I had very little bruising and swelling, and within 3/4 days I felt great. I have been back to the office since and would use Dr. Sajjadian again if I need any more work done.”
