My surgery experience at the Breast Reduction Center was nothing short of perfect. After years and years of agonizing over the decision, I’m SO happy I pulled the trigger and had my surgery there. I’m THRILLED with the results and could not have had a more positive experience with the entire team. Communication was effortless and I always had my questions answered as soon as they came up, I was checked in on in the most thoughtful ways pre and post surgery, literally nothing to complain about. It’s been nothing short of life changing. ~ Google

At the Breast Reduction Center of NYC, an innovative and unique approach to pain management has been developed, setting our practice apart from other plastic surgery practices across the country. We have performed hundreds of breast reductions without the need for any type of prescription pain medication after surgery. By using a special technique called a nerve block patients are able to recover using only over-the-counter Tylenol and ibuprofen. Even patients with very large breast reduction volumes, some over 7 pounds, can be treated using this special technique.
Please Note: To allow more flexibility in scheduling your consultation we only offer virtual appointments for new patients. We are experts at performing breast reductions and can evaluate and educate you simply from photos and a Zoom call.

Your initial consultation will include a conversation with you about what aspects of your life you feel are being negatively affected by having large or saggy breasts. Generally, insurance will not cover breast reduction plastic surgery if your reasons are purely cosmetic. While we are happy to perform a breast reduction for cosmetic reasons this is considered a self-pay surgical procedure by insurance companies. If you feel the size of your breasts is causing you pain and discomfort and interfering with your activities of daily life insurance companies may deem you an appropriate candidate to cover your breast reduction surgery. The clinical term for large breasts that cause pain or interfere with everyday life is “symptomatic macromastia”, and this is what an insurance company will be looking for to decide whether your requested breast reduction is medically necessary. If after your consultation at our Upper East Side plastic surgery practice in Manhattan, NY we agree you are a candidate for insurance coverage for your breast reduction surgery our best in class team will help you with all the necessary paperwork.
Am I a Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery? Typically, breast reduction surgery may be considered reconstructive and medically necessary when one or more of the following criteria are met:
- Your breasts are creating medical problems such as shoulder, back, or neck pain.
- Your bra straps are causing significant grooving in your shoulders.
- Your breasts are causing bad posture characterized by hunched shoulders and a curved back.
- You have limitations on physical activity impacting your ability to perform household chores, work duties, or exercise due to your breast size.
- You experience headaches or nerve compression syndromes due to the weight of your breasts.
- You develop rashes and/or infections on the trapped skin under your breasts.
Oftentimes, insurance companies will require a certain amount of weight to be removed from your breast. At the Breast Reduction Center of NYC, we aim to remove approximately 50% of the breast volume in order to reasonably expect to treat the signs / symptoms our patients experience. Our extensive experience using this approach has allowed us to treat hundreds of women this way in a safe, expedient, effective, and relatively pain-free manner with quick recovery times and minimal complication rates.
Breast reduction surgery can be performed at any age but it is usually recommended to wait until breast development is complete. Our top rated breast reduction specialists will spend as much time as necessary to make you feel completely comfortable about your breast reduction surgery and will answer all of your questions. The size and shape of your breasts, the quality of your skin, and the placement of the nipples and areolas will be carefully evaluated and the expectations from the surgery will be fully explained.
The Breast Reduction Center of NYC specializes in taking exceptional care of each patient from the initial breast reduction consultation to the post-recovery period. The honor and privilege of caring for our patients come with the responsibility and dedication of the best in class board certified/board eligible plastic surgeons and our staff to adhere to the utmost standards of excellence in patient care and final breast reduction surgical outcome.
