Breast Reduction in Chicago, IL

When it comes to breast size, bigger is not always better. Oversized breasts can cause a variety of physical problems (including pain in the back, neck, and shoulders), not to mention attracting attention you may not want. Dr. Lawrence Iteld is a skilled plastic surgeon in Chicago, IL who has helped countless women regain their confidence and enjoy the life they want through cosmetic breast reduction. This aesthetic treatment at Iteld Plastic Surgery reduces excess breast tissue and skin to reshape the breasts to a smaller and healthier size. It also reduces the size of the areolas and nipples and repositions them so they look natural with the new size. In most cases, a breast lift is implemented to give a tighter and younger-looking appearance. If you're ready to get the excess weight off your chest, schedule a consultation with our team at Iteld Plastic Surgery to learn how breast reduction surgery can help you.

Breast reduction surgery at Iteld Plastic Surgery is a highly individualized procedure so we'll first have a consultation with you to discuss the results you want and how we can help you achieve them. Women who are looking for a more complete transformation may choose to pair their breast reduction with a lift or another procedure. There are several possible approaches Dr. Iteld may take for your breast reduction surgery, depending on the amount that needs to be removed and your desired outcomes. Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient treatment and is conducted with the patient under general anesthesia. The timing of surgery depends on a few factors, including the incision type, the general technique, and finally, the degree of reduction. The nipple and areola repositioning will also be a factor. Depending on the difficulty of the reduction, either an inverted-T or a straight line (vertical) incision will be incorporated. Breast fat and tissue will be removed, and the existing skin and tissue will be pulled tight and secured. While you can expect some scarring, Dr. Iteld strives during each surgery to make all incisions as small and inconspicuous as possible. Following your procedure, we'll provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure you have a safe, smooth recovery.

While a number of women may look for ways to increase the volume of their breasts, for others, unnaturally large breasts can negatively affect their day-to-day lives and self-image. A breast reduction surgery at Iteld Plastic Surgery in Chicago, IL offers several benefits to boost your comfort and quality of life, such as:

  • Creates better body proportions
  • Lifts and shapes the breasts
  • Resizes the nipples for a proportional appearance
  • Improves comfort and posture
  • Enhances range of motion and movement
  • May take away neck and back pain
  • Opens up your outfit options
  • Helps with skin chafing
  • Makes exercise and high-impact activities more comfortable

Dr. Iteld and his team truly deserve a 12/10. I got a breast augmentation done about 6 weeks ago and couldn’t be happier with the results. The entire experience from the consultation to the surgery and recovery was a breeze. He answered all of my questions during the consultation and made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. The non-narcotic approach they take makes the recovery so easy and pain free. Everyone in the office is so nice and helpful. I would highly recommend Dr. Iteld and would 100% use him in the future!

Achieved the natural look I wanted - I am very impressed with Dr. Iteld and his office. I had both breast augmentation and liposuction. First of all, he is an excellent surgeon who listened to my concerns and wishes. He achieved the natural look I wanted. Secondly, his approach to an opioid free breast augmentation helped control my pain better than a friend who had opioids for her surgery. Thirdly, I was very impressed that his staff walked me through each step and prepared me for the post op course- the pain, recovery, and recommended actions to achieve the best outcome. As a healthcare worker, I know it’s better to prepare patients for both the good and bad outcomes and what to expect for pain, swelling, nausea, and recovery. However most surgeons gloss over this and patients are surprised and upset when they have expected minor problems. When I had postop concerns, they were addressed quickly. I appreciated Dr. Iteld’s bedside manner and the professionalism of his staff. I cannot recommend him enough!

Extraordinary experience! I had breast implants for 23 years and was ready to have them removed. I am in the medical field and I spent time researching my options. Many other professionals in the medical field reccomended Dr Iteld and my own experience confirmed why he is so highly regarded. Dr Iteld is knowledgeable, skilled and personable- I knew from the very beginning I was being cared for by one of the best. I was also impressed by his office staff who were always warm and helpful. I felt so good after my surgery that I had to keep reminding myself to take it easy. So happy I chose Dr Iteld!

I had a breast augmentation with Dr. Iteld and I absolutely love my results. He and his team were so kind, professional, thorough, and informative. I was a little nervous of course about surgery, but they made me feel very comfortable and confident in my decision. Recovery with no narcotics was so easy. I was surprised at how good I felt after surgery. Everything healed up perfectly and I’m so happy I went with him. I’d highly recommend him!
