NYC BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY
When Bigger Isn’t All That Great
Many women end up going through breast augmentation surgery as a means of enhancing their appearance. However, while some might make the decision to increase their breast size, there are others that may benefit more from a breast reduction. Breast reduction surgery in New York removes excess skin and tissue in the breasts to reduce their size and reshape them. The areola might also be altered in this procedure. The main goal of the surgery is to help alleviate any health problems you might be dealing with from having breasts that are too large for your body. From resolving back problems to boosting your self-confidence, breast reduction surgery in New York can help in more ways than one. If you are tired of feeling embarrassed or uncomfortable when exercising or performing ordinary chores, let New York plastic surgeon Dr. Marcel Scheinman help you transform your life today.
Will a Breast Reduction Work for My Pain?
Breast reduction surgery in New York is often done to improve the weight, shape, size and firmness of your breasts. Normally, women opting to have the surgery done fall into one of three categories:
- To reduce any limitations imposed by having larger, heavier breasts in terms of sporting activities. Certain activities can be awkward and painful for women with larger breasts.
- To reduce physical discomfort. Larger breasts can cause skin irritation, neck pain, back pain and problems with your posture. Heavy breasts are constantly pulling on a woman’s bra and leaving indentions in their shoulders.
- To change your appearance and gain confidence. If your breasts aren’t proportionate to your weight and height, they can be somewhat embarrassing. Young women and teenagers who have larger breasts are often uncomfortable wearing a bathing suit because of their larger breasts.
What is the Breast Reduction Surgery Like?
To remove the skin and tissue from the breasts, Dr. Scheinman will make an incision in the breast. Once the excess skin and tissue is removed, sutures are used to close the incision site. At times, the areola and nipple might have to be repositioned.
Depending on the situation, liposuction is sometimes used in conjunction with breast reduction surgery. If the majority of the breast is composed of fatty tissue, and there isn’t an issue with excessive amounts of skin, liposuction might even be all you need to reduce your breast size.
The surgery is often done in either a surgical center or a hospital using a general anesthetic. On average, the surgery takes about three to five hours to complete. You normally don’t have to worry about staying overnight. If the reduction isn’t as extensive, you might only need a local anesthetic.
