Extra body weight as a result of very large breasts can cause a variety of health problems including back and neck pain, skin irritation and difficulty with exercising and breathing.
Breast reduction surgery is a procedure used to remove fat, glandular tissue and excess skin from the breast, making the breast smaller, lighter and firmer. The nipple is also repositioned in proportion to the new breast size and shape.
For best results, the breasts should be fully developed before surgery is performed. However, if large breasts are causing serious health problems in younger patients, Dr. Fortes may recommend that this procedure be preformed sooner. This surgery also should be postponed for women who are planning to breast feed.
The breast reduction procedure takes about three to five hours under general anesthesia, and the recovery period will last from seven to ten days. Most women can return to work in about two weeks but should avoid lifting or strenuous exercise for the next three to four weeks. For several weeks following surgery, use of a support bra is recommended to help reduce swelling and bruising.

I’ve had rhinoplasty with Dr. Fortes. Going through surgery; the environment doesn’t feel like being in a hospital, some people get scared when it comes to needles & all of that stuffs. It was totally painless. The staff is very nice. The surgeon makes his patients feel appreciated. He is an artist.
It’s been only 3 weeks and my stomach is so flat and my waist is so little!
Dr. Fortes is extremely professional and makes you feel very comfortable. I had a tummy tuck and liposuction, because my c-section left me with extra skin. It’s been only 3 weeks and my stomach is so flat and my waist is so little! I highly recommend this doctor! The staff is nice and very helpful as well!
