Breast Reduction in New York City Aside from achieving a more proportionate figure, breast reduction can ease the burden that heavy breasts place on the back and shoulders. This procedure is often performed in conjunction with a breast lift to give the breasts a firmer, higher result. Breast Reduction typically requires general anesthesia & yields quick results. Am I a good candidate for a Breast Reduction Procedure? A breast reduction may be right for you if heavy, hanging breasts are causing you back pain or neck issues. Your breast size prevents you from enjoying sports, buying clothes, or feeling comfortable with yourself. You want to achieve better breast proportion and comfort. What can I expect during the Breast Reduction Procedure? An anchor-shaped incision circles the areola (darker skin surrounding the nipple), extends downward, and follows the natural curve of the crease beneath the breast. Excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin is removed. The nipple and areola are moved into their new position. The skin is then closed from both sides of the breast down and around the areola, shaping the new contour of the breast. In most cases, the nipples remain attached to their blood vessels and nerves. BREAST REDUCTION BEFORE & AFTER What is the recovery process? Self-absorbing sutures will dissolve in three to five days. Most activity can be resumed as you as you feel able. Strenuous activity and any lifting should be avoided until you are cleared by Dr. Lorenc. Sleep on your back in a reclining position for the first week.
