Breast Reduction Reviews
"Dr. Corbin and his staff have been so amazing throughout my process. I'm 2 weeks post op from a breast augmentation and I am so happy I did it! Dr. Corbin is very professional and gives you all the facts upfront and doesn't push you to decide anything you wouldn't want to do. I felt 100% comfortable. I now have the look I've always wanted. The staff is super sweet and also very helpful. Dee spent time talking with me and answering any questions I had. My nurse Ashley was great as well. Mewzette is also very helpful. I never felt nervous and if I had to do it all over again I would. Thank you Dr. Corbin and staff!"- L.K. / Yelp / Jun 20, 2018

"I had a breast augmentation with a lift in December 2016 at Dr. Corbin's Brea office. After losing 80 lbs I had sagging and my breasts were completely different shapes, sizes and even positions! The consultation process was so easy and my surgery was perfect. Dr. Corbin's work is impeccable! The recovery was without issue- I was back to work after a long weekend (Thurs- Mon) I had very little pain or bruising after the procedure thanks to his surgical skills! My scarring is also minimal and they came out so incredibly natural looking. My results are so amazing that I've had multiple girlfriends ask for the name of my surgeon. I have no problem referring them to Dr. Corbin! 3 years and a baby later- my breasts still look as amazing as they did when I first got them! Would definitely consider him again in the future."- C.G. / Yelp / Nov 18, 2019
"Dr. Corbin is amazing. I can't believe he has any bad reviews. I think people expect magic when they get a breast augmentation. They can work some miracles, but it just doesn't happen for everyone. These girls that go in with pictures saying "I WANT THIS!" are setting themselves up for failure. They work with what you have. Your breasts will look like an improved version of what you had before. But now about me....haha. I am 2 months in and feel like a different person. They're smooth and natural looking. No one has called me out..they just say...hmm..those got a bit bigger, and scratch their head as they walk away. He didn't steer me to a bigger size, like I hear a lot do. He seems to be a man that prefers natural look, right up my alley. He was blunt and to the point. His assistant (?) Kristen, who is amazing on her own, said some people are put off by his New Yorker attitude..I guess she read yelp. Give me a break. The guy is just so good he doesn't care to schmooze you. I liked that. It all felt real. He had a real take it or leave it attitude. My mother and I are like that and HATE feeling like someone is trying to sell themselves, not their work. My friend also went through him, she actually referred me, and has some of the best implants I have ever seen. She also knows 2 others that went to him and said they're great. He's not gonna hold your hand ladies. He will be blunt, professional, and to the point..but holy cow will you love your breasts. As for ladies who needed revisions, it happens with all the doctors, the best of the best. If I needed one, I'd go back to him, its his work, who best to fix it? And he is an expert at revisions as well. Good luck all!"- J.P. / Yelp / May 22, 2013
"I have nothing but good things to say about Dr Corbin and his staff Dr Corbin he is a very skilled plastic surgeon. He did my nose which it's only been 2 weeks and I have so many complements. Also did a Breast augmentation great job I highly recommend Dr Corbin."- P.V. / Yelp / Oct 18, 2017
How Breast Reduction is Performed
Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient treatment and is conducted with general anesthesia. The duration of the surgery depends on a variety of factors, including the complexity of the incision, the general surgical technique, and the degree of reduction. Repositioning the nipple and areola will also be a factor. In most cases, liposuction is used for tissue and fat reduction in order to decrease breast size. During your private consultation, Dr. Corbin will discuss all of these aspects with you. He'll also discuss the possibility of scarring, which commonly occurs. However, surgical skill and advanced methods have led to a decrease in the visibility of scarring. Depending on the difficulty of the reduction, either an inverted-T or a straight-line (vertical) incision will be used. Breast fat and tissue will be removed, and the remaining tissue and skin will be tightened.
What to Expect After Breast REduction
Once surgery has been completed, we'll observe you closely in our comfortable recovery area and then discharge you home to heal. A small, tube-like draining device is usually placed near the incision area to assist with swelling and bleeding. You'll need to wear a medical sports bra for a few days to help increase blood flow to your breasts during the initial healing period. Within about a month, your breasts should settle, and the post-surgery side effects should dissipate. After breast reduction surgery, many patients report feeling much lighter and more confident to wear the clothes they desire. Remember that it's important to maintain a healthy weight so as not to compromise the results.
