Breast Reduction & Still Feel Beautiful

Achieve a more youthful look and improve your confidence for years to come with a breast reduction surgery from Quintessa. Serving the greater Milwaukee and Madison areas, Quintessa can accompany your reduction procedure with a breast lift if recommended. A breast reduction surgery involves removing the heavy tissue on the sides and bottom of the breasts to improve your look and natural appearance.

Many women opt for this procedure to remove excess breast tissue and skin because they feel their breasts are not proportionate to the rest of their body, they are experiencing discomfort or back pain, they find it difficult to complete everyday activities, their clothes don't fit the way they'd like them to, or they feel self-conscious about their breast size.

Whatever the reason is for a woman to change the appearance or size of her breasts, we know it's a very personal choice. You deserve to feel great about your body -- no matter what you are wearing, or not wearing.

Why Breast reduction surgery

If your breasts have lost form over time or do not have the proportionate appearance you desire, a breast reduction surgery may be the right option for you. This procedure is often accompanied by a breast lift to achieve the most natural and aesthetically pleasing looking possible.

The breast reduction surgery

First, patients will meet with Dr. Daniel Butz to discuss their specific needs and concerns.

During the surgery itself, our surgeons will reduce the weight of your breasts by removing the heavy tissue on the sides and bottom of the breasts. They will then surgically lift the breasts back up, to reveal a more youthful position and give you years of confidence.

Breast reduction recovery

Recovery following a breast reduction surgery is usually quite minimal. It is recommended that you avoid sleeping on your stomach for 1-2 weeks. The sutures are usually removed in 7-10 days and most people are able to return to work and their everyday lives within that time as well.


For men looking to reduce the overall size of their chest, we provide the following procedure to treat swollen breast tissue:

Also referred to as gynecomastia, swollen breast tissue in males is caused by hormonal imbalance and can be treated with a specific male breast reduction procedure. Just as we do with our female patients, male patients will also consult with Dr. Butz to determine what the issue is and whether male breast reduction surgery is required.
