It can be both embarrassing and frustrating when your breasts are the first thing people notice about you. Having overly large breasts can also be painful, limiting your activities and clothing choices. While some people may believe bigger is better, living with large breasts can erode both your emotional and physical wellbeing.

Women of all ages choose breast reduction in New York to gain freedom from the physical and emotional burden of large breasts. The New York Group for Plastic Surgery, with a team of highly trained and qualified plastic surgeons, has been enhancing women’s lives for over 27 years. Our warm, caring, and supportive approach to patient care provides an environment in which you can feel comfortable discussing very private and sensitive concerns about your body.

Improvements from Breast Reduction in New York

Women turn to breast reduction, technically called “reduction mammaplasty,” for many personal reasons, including:

  • Reducing neck, back, and shoulder pain caused by the weight of heavy breasts
  • Improving self-confidence about breast size
  • Decreasing breast size to be in proportion with body frame
  • Redirecting nipples that hang down
  • Relieving chafing and skin irritation caused by sagging breast skin
  • Balancing the size of asymmetrical breasts

Many women combine breast reduction in our New York practice with breast lift or as part of a mommy makeover for a more complete enhancement. During your consultation, your surgeon will work with you to determine the right combination of procedures to help you achieve your plastic surgery goals. You can see patient results when you review our online before-and-after photos.

Special Considerations

Since breast reduction surgery involves significant changes to your breasts, your surgeon will help you determine whether it is the right choice for you. At your confidential consultation, we will give you all the information you need to make an educated decision about your procedure. Ideally, you should be a woman who is:

  • Maintaining a healthy, stable weight
  • Not planning future pregnancies
  • Physically-mature with fully-developed breasts

If you intend to become pregnant or lose weight, your surgeon might encourage you to postpone your breast reduction surgery until afterwards because the improvements from surgery likely will be reversed.

When it comes to breast reduction, many New York women choose this surgery for medical reasons, and in some cases the cost may be covered by medical insurance. Our helpful and knowledgeable office staff will be happy to assist you in determining your particular coverage in advance.

What to Expect From Your Breast Reduction in New York

Breast reduction surgery is performed at our on-site, outpatient facility. You will be able to go home the day of your surgery – arrange to have someone drive you home and help you out after your procedure.

After a breast reduction, it is common to have temporary numbness of the nipples and breasts that can last from 1 to 2 months, or even up to a year. You will be able to return to light activity, including work, after about 2 weeks. More vigorous activity and exercise will be limited for at least the first month.

With breast reduction, you can increase your physical comfort and self-esteem with freedom from overly large breasts. Let the New York Group for Plastic Surgery make a difference for you.
