Breast Reduction NYC

You should always feel comfortable with your breast size

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

Women of all ages choose breast reduction in NYC 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 where you feel comfortable discussing 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 the 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 a breast lift or as a 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 if it’s the right decision for you. At your confidential consultation, we give you all the information you need to make an educated decision about your procedure. Ideally, you should:

  • Maintain a healthy and stable weight.
  • Not have any plans for future pregnancies.
  • Be physically-mature with fully-developed breasts.

If you intend to become pregnant or lose weight, your surgeon might encourage you to postpone the breast reduction surgery. Pregnancy or sudden weight loss after the procedure may reverse the results and improvements.

When it comes to breast reduction, many New York women choose this surgery for medical reasons. As such, in some cases, the cost may be covered by medical insurance. Our helpful and knowledgeable office staff will gladly help you determine your insurance coverage options in advance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does a breast reduction automatically lift the breast?

Yes, a breast reduction also includes a breast lift. The surgeon will remove excess breast tissues, tighten the skin, and move your nipples up in the correct area. Consequently, the breast reduction will also make your breast appear perkier and more uplifted. While a breast reduction also includes a lift, the same isn’t true the other way around — a breast lift doesn’t automatically reduce your breast size.

Will my nipples be removed for a breast reduction?

No! There’s a common but completely UNTRUE assumption that a breast reduction involves removing your nipples. While some of the skin around the nipples will be removed and tightened, the nipples will remain firmly attached to your breasts. The nipples will be even more prominent because your breast will be uplifted.

Does a breast reduction produce permanent results?

Once the excess breast tissues are removed, they’re gone forever. However, the remaining breast tissues can expand or contract with fluctuations in weight, hormones, and the gradual aging process can make them droop downwards. As such, breast reduction produces permanent results, but, like all breasts, they’re not immune to changes caused by age, weight fluctuations, and other factors.
