This 49 year-old woman had grooves in her shoulders from her size 34HH bra carrying so much weight from her breasts. She visited with Dr. Kunkel in his Fort Worth plastic surgery office to learn about breast reduction surgery. Because of the extremely large size of her breasts, Dr. Kunkel thought it would be best to use a free nipple graft technique. During her surgery the nipples were removed, then placed back on the breasts as grafts after the other breast tissue was removed. The breast reduction resulted in 7.5 pounds of tissue being removed. That’s about the weight of an electric guitar! Her postoperative result is shown 4 months later, and she was wearing a 36DD bra. Keep in mind that each person is unique, and individual results will vary.
