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. As a result, it improves a patient’s quality of life.

This is according to a study at Wexner Medical Centre at the Ohio State University, Columbus. The paper further stated that “The improvement in physical well-being is important for justification of insurance coverage,”.

This procedure is often in conjunction with a breast lift to gi ve the breasts a firmer, higher result. This procedure 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.

What is the recovery process?

Self-absorbing sutures will dissolve in three to five days. You can resume most activities as you as you feel able. Avoid any strenuous activity and any lifting until you get clearance from your surgeon. Sleep on your back in a reclining position for the first week.
