When breasts are too large, they can cause a woman pain and discomfort, as well as affect her confidence.


The cosmetic surgeons at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates, Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin, can resolve these issues with breast reduction surgery, which resizes and repositions the breasts. After the surgery in Oklahoma City, the breasts are smaller and lifted, which can reduce the painful symptoms associated with larger breasts, such as neck and back pain. Breast reduction surgery also lifts the breasts to a higher position, which enhances a woman’s overall appearance. This surgery can help a woman both look and feel better.

Breast Augmentation With Lift Surgical Technique

A combination breast surgery is usually done as an outpatient procedure where you will be placed under general anesthesia. In most cases, the lift portion of the surgery is done first. The excess skin is eliminated and the surrounding tissue is tightened. Our surgeons will go over breast implant options with you before the surgery so your implants can look and feel as you expect them to. In certain patients, the nipple and/or areola will need to be repositioned to fit your new breast shape and size.




I recommend Dr. Nuveen to anyone who is serious about investing in themselves!! Everyone at CSA is AMAZING!!

Surgical Technique

It is important to find a highly skilled surgeon who has experience with this procedure. It is important to maintain a good blood supply to the nipple areola complex as there is risk of discoloration and loss of sensation when blood flow is restricted. Liposuction is also implemented to remove the excess fat while the loose skin will be excised and tightened to form the newly shaped breasts. This procedure is also implemented as a way to correct an issue of breast asymmetry.

Incision Placement

The most common incision for breast reduction is what they call “the anchor” or a vertical T. With this kind of approach, the incision is made around the areola, extends vertically down to the breast crease, and then is followed by another horizontal incision along the direction of the fold. The areola will be repositioned once the breasts have been resized and recurved. A lift will also be done so that the breasts will be placed higher on the chest.



I came to Dr Nuveen for a breast lift/reduction with a new smaller implant. I could not be happier with the results, the staff were extremely sweet and professional. I will recommend them to everyone!

During/After Surgery

Breast reduction is always done in an accredited surgical center under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. The surgery usually takes about 2 to 4 hours. For the first several weeks, the surgeon will recommend the use of a compression bra to protect the breasts. Patients may go back to work within 7-10 days and may resume physical activities (such as exercise) between 6-8 weeks post-operative. Results following a breast reduction are usually visible immediately after the surgery. Nipple sensitivity will gradually return within the first year.

    Breast Reduction FAQs


    Will results last?

    Breast reduction is a long-term solution for patients who are affected with excessively large breasts. In cases where there is significant weight gain, the results may be compromised just like any cosmetic procedure that modifies body shape. Natural aging and gravity will take their toll over time and will still affect the breasts with or without the reduction. It is important to maintain a good health routine so that the enhancement lasts for a long time.

    Smaller areola?

    For women with larger breasts, the areola is also excessively large. In a breast reduction surgery, an areola reduction is also considered. As an incision is made surrounding the areola, the excess skin will also be trimmed so that it is proportional to the breasts’ new shape.
