Abnormally large breasts can cause social, functional, and physical problems for women. In addition, uneven and very large breasts can create self-confidence issues and embarrassment, as well as physical pain.
At BSSNY, we can help women get back their confidence and feel more comfortable through the surgical reduction of the breasts. This aesthetic surgery reduces excess breast fat and skin, as well as unhealthy tissue to redefine and reshape the breasts to a smaller size. Breast reduction surgery also reshapes the size of the nipples/areolas and repositions them so they are symmetrical with the new breast size. In most cases, a breast lift is performed to produce a tighter and younger-looking appearance.
If you are unhappy with your oversized breasts that create obstacles in your daily life, cosmetic breast reduction may be a good option to get the shape you wish for. This surgery is helpful for women who experience anxiety or find it difficult to lead an active life because of the weight of their breasts. If you also deal with ongoing skin irritations (as well as back or neck pain), this surgery can eliminate these annoyances.
Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient process and is performed with general anesthesia. The timing of surgery is dependent upon a few factors, including the complexity of the incision, the overall reduction technique, and finally, how much reduction is required. The nipple and areola repositioning is also a factor. For most patients, liposuction is needed for fat and tissue elimination to decrease breast size. Potential scarring is also scrupulously discussed as it is common to occur. Depending on the intricacy of the reduction, either an anchor or a vertical incision will be incorporated. The breast tissue will be removed, and the existing tissue and skin will be pulled tight and secured.
After surgery, you will be observed closely in our comfortable recovery facility and then discharged home to heal. A small, tube-like draining device will most likely be placed near the surgical site to reduce bleeding and swelling. A medical sports bra will also be put in place for several days that will boost blood flow to the breasts during the initial healing period. Within about a month, the breasts will position themselves and settle and the post-op effects will fade away.
