Breast Reduction With Dr. Kaufman & Dr. Doshi in Manhattan

Your Solution for a More Comfortable Life

At Discreet Plastic Surgery, we understand the difficulties of having overly large breasts. Back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain can all be attributed to the weight of the breasts and can significantly reduce your quality of life.

If you find it difficult to exercise, participate in physical activities, and find clothes that fit properly, breast reduction surgery can give your relief from these issues and improve your overall comfort and confidence.

What Is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess breast tissue and skin to reduce the size and weight of the breasts.

Breast hyperplasia, or excessively large breasts, can cause back, shoulder, and breast pain, improper posture, rashes, skeletal deformities, and low self-esteem. Additionally, large breasts can prevent women from performing self-examination as part of the recommended breast cancer screening program.

Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure done to relieve back, shoulder, and breast pain, but it can also substantially enhance the shape and appearance of the breasts.

Although there are several different surgical techniques to reduce large breasts, all procedures will remove fat and glandular tissue and tighten the skin to produce lighter, perkier breasts in better proportion to the rest of your body, giving your bust line a younger, fitter, and rejuvenated look.

How Does a Breast Reduction Work?

Breast reduction surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes several hours.

Your surgeon will make incisions around the areola and down to the breast crease, then remove excess tissue and reposition the nipple to a higher position. The incisions are then closed with sutures, and the patient will wear a surgical bra for several weeks following the procedure.

Recovery & Results

Recovery from breast reduction surgery typically takes several weeks, and you'll need to take time off work and avoid strenuous activities.

You can manage any pain and discomfort with medication, and you'll need to wear a surgical bra for several weeks to support the breasts as they heal. Scarring is inevitable after breast reduction surgery, but the scars typically fade and can be concealed with clothing.

The results of breast reduction surgery are typically long-lasting, although weight fluctuations and pregnancy can affect the size and shape of the breasts over time. You'll need to maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid significant weight changes to maintain your results.

What Are the Benefits of Getting a Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction can provide several benefits if you have large breasts.

First, it can significantly reduce the physical discomfort of carrying excess breast tissue, including back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as rashes and irritation that can develop under the breasts. Breast reduction can also make participating in physical activities and exercise easier, improving overall health and well-being.

In addition to physical benefits, breast reduction can improve self-confidence and body image. Women with large breasts may feel self-conscious or uncomfortable in certain clothing and may even experience unwanted attention or harassment due to their breast size.

Breast reduction can help address these issues and help you feel more comfortable and confident in your body.
