What is a Breast Reduction?
Large breasts can create social, functional, and physical concerns for women. Additionally, extremely large breasts can cause physical pain, insecurity, and embarrassment. With breast reduction surgery, Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang has helped countless women live more comfortably and enjoy active lifestyles. At Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, we will remove excess fat, tissue, and skin to redefine and reshape the breasts to a more comfortable size. During your surgery, Dr. Mang will resize the nipples/areolas and reposition them so they appear more proportionate with your new breasts. In most cases, we also perform a breast lift to produce a tighter and more youthful appearance.
Do I qualify for a breast reduction?
If you suffer from heavy and overly large breasts that prevent you from living comfortably, breast reduction surgery can help you attain your desired figure. This procedure works well for women who experience emotional stress or find it difficult to live an active life because of their breast size. If you also have chronic skin conditions or neck pain, breast reduction can address these symptoms. Before undergoing this surgery, patients need to be at a stable weight. We also highly recommend choosing an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Mang. With years of experience, Dr. Mang will create a personalized surgical plan that addresses your cosmetic concerns and provides beautiful results.
"I had breast surgery done from Dr. Mang 17 years ago, the results were amazing. I had minimal scarring. He and his staff followed up with me amazingly. Fast forward almost 20 years later, due to weight loss, weight gain, 2 more children and poor skin due to heritertly, I went back to Dr. Mang for another surgery. Again the results were perfect. In addition to excellent work, he checks on you PERSONALLY after your surgery. He is a talented surgeon. I again received exactly what I was looking for. Some people expect plastic surgeons to make them look like the housewives of Beverly Hills.. this isn’t going to happen ladies..However a good Dr. WILL create the best look and fit for you and what you have to work with."- A.L. / Google / Jun 09, 2020
"I always wanted to try out Botox, just a chicken committing because I don’t like needles; A few of my coworkers went with me to ease the idea of doing it alone.It’s important to note, they used clean and individual packages of needles for each of us and numbing cream with betadine on the spots I wanted to be injected with the filler. The process wasn’t bad at all, especially since they were doing a $9/unit special accompanied by a glass of Rose - how can I say no to that? When Dr. Mang injected my forehead and pulled out the needle, you can hear a small crunch; this is normal and Dr. Mang explained if you don’t hear this sound, it is not being done correctly. I wouldn’t have done this or brought other people unless it was anyone else than fellow Yelper, Anna M., because I trust her so much.Thank you for the opportunity - even though I got 10 units vs. 50 units of botox compared to a coworker - I feel that it was effective to iron out my wrinkles, even though I know I have minimal amount heading into my 30s. This was my X-mas gift to myself!I saw firsthand the difference for people who do have a lot of wrinkles & are young, so IMO botox is such an amazing product to help smooth out wrinkles."- J.X. / Google / Mar 01, 2020
"Dr. Brandon Mang has recently relocated his Pinellas Park office to South Tampa on Gandy Boulevard. I normally receive Botox injections from a nurse practitioner at a nearby practice. The people who have injected my Botox in the past have been quick in their process...almost too quick. Dr. Mang takes the time to discuss your areas of concern, applies numbing cream, and then marks these areas with Betadine to ensure no infection and proper placement. I chose Dr. Mang because he is an expert in his field. He and his staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Mang’s genuine bedside manner with his patients is truly one of the best I have ever encountered. He takes the time to answer all your questions and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the procedures you are inquiring about. I highly recommend Dr. Brandon Mang for all your plastic and cosmetic surgery needs."- A.M. / Google / Feb 20, 2020

Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient treatment and is performed using general anesthesia. The duration of your surgery depends on various factors, including the incision type, reduction technique, and the amount of excess tissue. If we reposition your areola and nipple, that will also increase the time of your surgery. Typically, patients also need liposuction to decrease fat and reduce breast size. At the time of your consultation, Dr. Mang will address all of these factors. He will also discuss scarring because it commonly occurs after breast reduction surgery. However, advanced techniques have led to a significant decrease in the visibility of scarring. Based on the complexity of the reduction, we will use either an anchor or a straight line (vertical) incision. Next, the excess breast tissue is removed, and the remaining skin and tissue are pulled and lifted.
What to Expect
After surgery, we will closely monitor you and then send you home to recover. You will have a draining tube near the treatment site to reduce bleeding. At first, patients will need to wear a compression sports bra to increase blood circulation to the breasts. Within about a month, the breasts will settle and the post-surgery side effects will subside. The majority of our patients at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery say they feel lighter, relieved, and more self-confident. After breast reduction surgery, you can enjoy the clothes you could not wear before and feel confident in your new figure. Please keep in mind that you will need to maintain a healthy weight so your results do not change.
Dr. Mang has helped many women live a better quality of life with cosmetic breast reduction. During your first visit to Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Mang will discuss all of your treatment options and develop a custom surgical plan.
