Breast Reduction in Wichita, KS
Breast reduction procedures are often considered breast reconstruction surgery because of the medical conditions associated with overly large breasts. Dr. Voge makes an incision in the breast where she removes extra tissue, fat and skin which add volume to the breasts. The nipple and areola will be positioned to create a more balanced body contour. When necessary, Dr. Voge will reduce enlarged nipples and eliminate stretch marks during surgery. The result is smaller, uplifted breasts.

- significant arthritic changes in the cervical or upper thoracic spine, optimally managed with persistent symptoms and/or restriction of activity
- rashes underneath the breasts due to excess skin
- permanent shoulder grooving with skin irritation by supporting garment (bra strap)
