Breast Reduction MinneapolisNot all women have the same preference when it comes to breast size. A breast reduction is among the common procedures that Dr. James A. Hoffman provides in his practice in St. Paul, Minneapolis. Women with overly large breasts often feel discomfort due to the weight added by their large breasts. This is the main reason why women decide to get a breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty. Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that is used to reduce the size of a patient’s breast through the removal of excess fat, skin, and glandular tissues. A breast reduction’s goal is to achieve a breast size that is proportional to the patient’s body frame. It can be done on patients of any age, but Dr. James A. Hoffman advises his young patients in St. Paul, Minneapolis to wait until the breasts have fully developed prior to their breast reduction procedure.

Breast Reduction with LiposuctionWomen with large breasts are often unable to engage in the types of vigorous exercise that leads to stable body weight, such as running or aerobics. This patient was bothered by her large breasts and the tummy fat that she had had since her teen years. A combination of breast reduction and liposuction has given her a shapely new figure. Body contour surgery has enabled her to maintain an exercise routine and ideal body weight.
You are an outstanding surgeon and professional
Dear Dr. Hoffman, I wanted to say thank you. From the first consultation, up to the day of my surgery and through all of my follow up appointments, I knew I was in good hands. You treat your patients with great care and concern Dr. Hoffman, which I think says a lot about you. The staff at the hospital where I had my surgery were wonderful as well. If I know of anyone that is considering plastic surgery, I will highly recommend that they consult you. I am so happy that I decided to have this procedure done and I am thrilled with the results! Thank you so much. You are an outstanding surgeon and professional. Best Regards,Patricia K.
