Your Breast Reduction Procedure
When you consult with our doctors about your breast reduction surgery in Riverside County, he will discuss your goals and evaluate your current breast size and accompanying concerns. He will explain how the procedure can create more attractively contoured and smaller breasts.
Dr. Eichenberg, Dr. Filip or Dr. Ford performs breast reduction for Riverside County patients under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis or in the hospital. He typically makes the incisions around the pigmented area (the nipple-areolar complex), then extends them vertically below the nipple and along the fold under the breast. Our doctors moves the nipple-areolar complex upward to the desired location and removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin.

Breast Implant Removal
For a variety of reasons, some patients eventually choose to have their breast implants removed. Dr. Zachary Filip, Dr. Brian Eichenberg and Dr. Rachel Ford are experienced in the safe removal of breast implants.
Oftentimes the larger breast size once desired when younger no longer fits, or a variety of medical problems or personal choices can sometimes make implants no longer desirable. Whatever the reason, if you are thinking about removing your breast implants, you want an experienced, caring plastic surgeon like Dr. Filip, Dr. Eichenberg and Dr. Ford.
Removing Breast Implants
Prior to your procedure, you will meet with your surgeon so that you can understand the details of your surgery. Some patients choose to replace their implants with a smaller, more proportional size, or undergo a breast lift to create a more attractive, “perky” breast shape. Simple implant removal can be done under local anesthesia. Twilight sedation or general anesthesia are also an option. During the procedure your surgeon carefully removes your implants and, if needed any excessive scar tissue around the implant. Recovery time is typically much faster than when placing implants the first time and patients return to most activities pain-free in a few days.
