Breast reduction plastic surgery is offered at Breast Reduction Center of NYC (located on the Upper East Side in Manhattan, NY) with or without a breast lift. Shoulder / back pain, rashes beneath the breasts, as well as grooving from the bra straps, are common in women who have large breasts. Many women struggle to find bras and clothing that fits properly, and some are quite self-conscious about having large breasts. A woman may be a candidate for a breast reduction if these characteristics have a detrimental impact on her quality of life. Surgery to reduce the size of the breasts when it is medically essential aims to remove as much tissue as feasible while preserving a suitable appearance. This method will result in breasts that are reduced in size, lifted, and more naturally proportionate to your body, which can help correct posture, lessen pain and discomfort, get rid of skin irritation, and boost self-esteem and confidence.

Excess skin, breast tissue, and fat are removed from the breasts during breast reduction plastic surgery. Usually, the areola is also reduced in size. Approximately 50% of the breast volume is removed to minimize the severity of a patient’s discomfort.
Although there are many surgical custom techniques available for breast reduction surgery, an anchor-shape incision is most commonly employed by our best in class NYC based board certified / eligible plastic surgeons when the procedure is medically necessary. The extra skin, breast tissue, and fat are removed, and the tissues are then re-suspended to take on a naturally contoured shape. Additionally, by doing this, the nipple and areola are moved to a more aesthetically attractive posture, pointing upward rather than below (which is referred to as a breast lift).
The procedure takes about 2 hours to complete and is performed under general anesthesia. Patients return home the same day.
Some bleeding and swelling are normal occurrences that may take a few weeks to go away. The stitches do not need to be removed because they are all hidden beneath the skin and dissolve naturally. We use an innovative surgical technique that allows for us not to use drains. Following surgery, patients are allowed to walk and resume their normal daily activities; however, for two weeks, they should refrain from intense activity as well as heavy lifting and pushing. In about a week, patients can usually resume their non-manual labor jobs. Patients feel that they can resume their preoperative activity level after around one to two months.
- A nerve block, a specialized surgical procedure, will be carried out to insert long-acting anesthetic medication along the rib cage. This eliminates the need for prescription-strength postoperative medicines.
- Major issues and unexpected postoperative situations are rare. Prior to performing surgery, our surgeons will go over all the risks, options, and advantages in great detail. They adopt a conservative and informed approach to breast reduction surgery.
- Most medically necessary breast reductions also comprise of a breast lift as part of the surgical technique.
A breast reduction that is medically required may be covered by some health insurance plans. We have the ability to verify your insurance for you.
A medically required breast reduction may be combined with a breast lift. By helping to flatten the rolls on the sides of the chest and sculpt a more rounded and symmetrical breast form, this will improve the overall breast aesthetic.
