Breast Reduction Surgery Performed in Sarasota, FL, by a Trusted Female Plastic Surgeon at Sovereign Plastic Surgery
A breast reduction procedure can be beneficial to a woman (or man) in a number of ways – both health related and aesthetic – if her breasts are very large or out of proportion with the rest of her body (a condition known as macromastia). If a male has visible breasts, the term is gynecomastia. In the Sarasota, FL, area, people who are interested in breast reduction surgery turn to Dr. Alissa M. Shulman. A board-certified plastic surgeon and founder of Sovereign Plastic Surgery, Dr. Shulman fully understands these concerns. In addition to her extensive medical training and plastic surgery experience, Dr. Shulman has a unique background as an artist and sculptor. As a result, her surgical skill is further enhanced by her knowledge and understanding of the human form and its proportions.
Breast reduction surgery can address a variety of issues and symptoms caused by excess weight carried in a woman’s chest area. These include:
- Chronic neck, shoulder, back, and breast pain
- Nerve compression that leads to numbness and tingling in the hands and fingers
- Skin irritation and rashes that form underneath the breasts
- Poor posture
- Deep indentations, scratches, and rashes on the shoulder skin caused by tight bra straps
- An inability to exercise and participate in other physical activities
- Difficulties in finding proper-fitting bras and clothing
- Unwanted attention and the resulting psychological issues
If you have one or more of these concerns and you are interested in addressing them with breast reduction surgery, you can consult with Dr. Shulman at her warm and welcoming office in Sarasota, Florida.

If you would like to proceed, and Dr. Shulman determines that you are healthy enough to undergo surgery, she will then recommend an appropriate breast reduction technique to help you address your specific concerns and achieve your surgical goals.
