I had a breast reduction 2 months ago, Dr. Awada and her staff were excellent from the moment I walked into the office. They made me feel welcome, and appreciated, and my husband was allowed to be with me at every appointment, at my request. I never waited more than 15 minutes for any appointment, and was in and out quickly, but was not rushed. Dr. and staff answered all questions I had with patience and understanding, even though I know they hear the same questions 50 times a day!- Sherri

We are experts at helping people find the right balance of breast size and breast appearance.

We are confident that we can formulate a breast reduction procedure that will deliver relief from the pain caused by excess breast mass and deliver long-lasting results.
As Michigan's leading breast reduction plastic surgeon, Dr. Awada, and her staff of reduction mammaplasty experts will listen to you to fully understand your goals for your surgery. Michigan Cosmetic Surgery has helped thousands of Metro-Detroit women feel less self-conscious about their breasts and live full and pain-free lives.
All breast reduction surgery procedures begin with an initial consultation with Michigan's top-rated breast reduction plastic surgeon, Dr. Awada. After helping thousands of patients struggling with overly large breasts, she is Michigan's most sought-after reduction mammaplasty expert.
She understands the difficult decisions you are going through while weighing the benefits of a breast reduction. During this conversation, you will discuss what issues led you to consider surgery, including any physical pain you may be experiencing. Patients will discuss what results they hope to achieve with their breast reduction surgery, both physically and emotionally.
After deciding on your future breast size and shape, Dr. Awada will outline the breast reduction procedure itself. Typically breast reduction surgery involves removing breast fat, glandular tissue skin, and other excess breast tissue. Dr. Awada will outline the entire surgical procedure and how each step will help you achieve the results you are looking for. When you feel confident in your breast reduction surgery plan's details, a date will be determined that works around your schedule.
Before your breast reduction surgery, we recommend that you gather some essential items to help you during the healing process. Make sure you have lots of ice to help soothe swollen breast tissue and plenty of clean washcloths and linens.
Plenty of loose shirts are a good idea as well as they will reduce pressure on your breasts. When the day of your breast reduction surgery comes, patients are greeted at our office, and once more, our plastic surgeon will walk through the procedures so that you feel fully confident in achieving the results you are looking for. Every one of our breast reduction procedures is an outpatient procedure and is designed to be as minimally invasive as possible.
While your breast reduction surgery is performed, you will be placed under general anesthesia while our plastic surgeons remove excess breast tissue and skin, reworking your breast tissue to meet your goals. Incision lines are made around the areola or at the fold of the breast and chest. We take every measure possible to minimize scar tissue from our patients' breast reduction procedures. After your breast reduction surgery, patients will be required to have a ride home as they may still feel the effects of the general anesthesia.
The healing time for breast reduction surgery procedures is similar to other breast enhancement, breast augmentation, or breast lift operations, and we recommend that you follow the advice that would come with any other form of plastic surgery.
You can expect to feel mild pain in and around your breasts, generally in the breast tissue and skin around the areola, and soreness for up to three weeks. Pain from your plastic surgery can be reduced with medication prescribed by Dr. Awada. During recovery, many patients feel tired and experience a lack of energy. For most women, this is normal as their breasts are healing from major surgery. However, if you think that something is not right, contact Dr. Awada immediately. While complications are rare, infections can occur in your breasts following surgery. Dr. Awada will determine if there are any abnormalities in your breast tissue and take necessary action.
You will want to rest for at least two weeks after your breast reduction surgery. Do not lift anything heavy or over your head during this time. You should not participate in any strenuous activity, including exercise or physically during your recovery. Doing so could disrupt the healing process your breasts are experiencing. Showering and bathing should be avoided for up to a week or until your drainage bandage has been removed. Hot baths and saunas should be avoided for up to a month after your surgery on your breasts. Dr. Awada will let you know when it is safe for you to drive a car, have sexual intercourse and return to work, but most women can return to everyday life after about three weeks when your breasts' tissue is fully healed.
Apart from the noticeable difference in breast size, most women are pleased with the new breast shape and placement. Most patients opt to undergo a lift during their breast reduction surgery.
This procedure helps to reposition the breast to a more natural position than where your large breasts were positioned. Dr. Awada will discuss breast lift options during your initial conversation to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Regarding your new breasts' look and feel, most women love the firmness and perkiness from a breast reduction.

My breast augmentation experience was 5 stars. Dr. Awada and her staff are super friendly, caring and treat you like family. The office is beautiful and a first class certified facility. Dr. Awada is top notch- she listened to my concerns and goals and took time to council me on different implants and sizes. She is the only one who even took measurements and tried sizers with me to determine what I wanted and the perfect implant. She was much more thorough and professional and made me feel very comfortable and beautiful just the way I was. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor and my results are more beautiful than I thought they could be- I love my breasts and get compliments all the time. I have referred my friends and Recommend Dr. A 110%!!!Mary T.
