Benefits From A Breast Reduction NY

Breast reduction surgery is a procedure that can create a more proportionate upper body, and increase symmetry between the breasts. Breast reduction in New York is ideal for healthy adult women who are dissatisfied with the size of their breasts.

Breast reduction treats:

  • Large breasts
  • Downward pointing nipples
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Shoulder, neck, or back pain caused by large breasts
  • Chafing and irritation beneath the breasts

The results of breast reduction surgery will better complement the rest of your body. Clothing will fit more comfortably, chronic pain will subside, and it will be easier to participate in physical activities.

Breast Reduction Procedure

Performed under general anesthesia, the incisions of your breast reduction surgery are usually placed along the breast crease, around the areola, and in a line connecting the areola and the breast crease.

Fat tissue is surgically removed and oftentimes liposuction surgery in New York is used to aid in that removal process. All incisions are secured with stitches and your chest area will be wrapped in a surgical garment. Temporary surgical drains may be placed at incision sites to collect fluid accumulation.

After Your Breast Reduction Surgery in NY

Initially, there will be some swelling and bruising, but this should diminish during the first two weeks. Wearing a support bra and compression garment to minimize swelling during the first several weeks of recovery is essential since your bandages are typically removed a few days after surgery.

Normal activities can be resumed within a few weeks, but intense activity should be avoided for four to six weeks. It is important to protect your breasts from accidental impacts and sun exposure for several months. The lines from the incisions will become less noticeable as they begin to fade during the next 12 to 18 months.
