Hollywood Breast Reduction

Posted On: September 04, 2008 Author: The Office of Dr. Stuart Linder Posted In: Breast Reduction, Home

In Hollywood, more actresses than you expect have undergone breast reduction surgery to reduce the size of the breasts, as well as to reduce functional problems that they are having.

In fact, in the issue of People Magazine, October 2007, it was discussed with Queen Latifa details of her original surgery back in 2003. She quotes that she was an “E” or an “F” cup at one time and is now approximately a full “D” to a “DD”.

When a patient has breasts that are extraordinarily large for her body, it is usually worth the tradeoff to undergo the breast reduction surgery and undergo reduction mammoplasty through a technique referred to as “Inferior Pedicle or Wise-pattern technique.”

Scars are placed around the nipple down the middle of the breasts and along the inframammary fold. Queen Latifa currently appears to be in clothes proportionate for her body size. Taking off too much tissue would probably make her disproportionately too small. Therefore, it is absolutely essential that patients go to Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons when undergoing reduction mammoplasty procedures in order to regain proportionality and symmetry of their breasts.
