Embrace Summer Freedom with a Breast Reduction

Posted on July 2, 2024 by Emile Brown

At the Aesthetic Center at Woodholme, we strive to empower our patients by enhancing their confidence with our cutting-edge procedures. One noteworthy procedure that our lead surgeon, Dr. Emile N. Brown, administers with exceptional care is Breast Reduction surgery. Particularly in the scorching summer months in Baltimore, Maryland, breast reduction could just be the liberating procedure needed to enjoy the summer months and beyond uninhibitedly.

Understanding Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction, clinically termed as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at relieving the discomfort associated with disproportionately large breasts. Larger breasts can lead to physical ailments such as backaches, neck pain, stretched skin, and skin irritation, especially during summer’s high temperatures. 

Why Opt for a Summer Breast Reduction?

Considering a breast reduction in the summer offers numerous practical benefits. With its hot and humid climate, summer in Baltimore ideally positions this season as the perfect time for recovery post-surgery. Loose and lightweight clothing allows for minimized irritation around the healing incisions and reduced risk of infection. With this weight taken off of your chest, you will find engaging in outdoor summer activities more enjoyable. Moreover, achieving a more proportionate silhouette for summer apparel and swimwear boosts body confidence, giving another compelling reason to opt for a Summer Breast Reduction.

The Journey of Breast Reduction

A breast reduction entails three critical stages: consultation, surgery, and recovery.


Starting with an in-depth consultation, we assess your health history, discuss your aesthetic goals, and customize the surgical plan. Dr. Emile N. Brown believes in forging a bond of trust with his patients, ensuring their comfort and absolute understanding of the process throughout.


The surgery itself lasts approximately 2-4 hours under general anesthesia. Your surgeon will make an incision along the crease under your breast before removing excess fat and tissue. During this time they can also lift the breasts by tightening the tissue and removing extra skin before using stitches to close the incision. Thanks to minimally invasive techniques, most patients report a surgery experience that is safe, comfortable, and relatively painless.


The post-surgery recovery period can last around 2-3 weeks, during which you would need to limit strenuous activities. You will be required to wear a surgical compression garment to hold your breasts in their new position and reduce swelling. In some cases, drains may be placed to collect excess fluid and blood. 

Improved Quality of Life

Most women who have undergone breast reduction experienced enhanced self-esteem and life satisfaction. Additionally, many are even able to engage in physical activities they previously couldn’t, confirming Summer Breast Reduction as a liberating, life-enhancing choice. Ultimately, the decision is yours, and we at the Aesthetic Center at Woodholme are here to guide and support you each step of the way.
