Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty)

Breast reduction is one of the most commonly requested procedures of large breasted women at Dr. Blauís Westchester, New York plastic surgery practice. The reason why breast reduction is important to over sized breasted women is primarily because of the medical conditions and daily life skill inhabitance that so many women interested in breast reduction experience. Women have travelled from all areas of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and across the world for breast reduction with Dr. Blau over the course of twenty five years.

As with all cosmetic surgery, results will be rewarding if expectations are realistic. As with any surgery, there are some risks which Dr. Blau will discuss with you.

Breast Reduction Enhancement:
Breast reduction surgery improves neck, back and shoulder pain that is commonly associated with enlarged breasts. Untreated oversized breasts can produce skeletal deformities, indentations in shoulder muscles, skin conditions, and chronic pain. In fact, women who have undergone breast reduction with Dr. Blau have remarked that daily activities which they avoided prior to breast reduction surgery can be performed with great ease and comfort after breast reduction surgery. Breast reduction surgery involves the removal of up to five or more pounds of glandular tissue and can be performed on women 16 years of age or over.

The Decision for Breast Reduction:
A complimentary consultation with Dr. Blau at his Westchester New York practice is the best way to obtain an assessment for breast reduction to help set reasonable expectations for the outcome of your breast reduction procedure. There are many considerations to evaluate, including: breast skin elasticity and the position of the nipple and areola in relation to the breast. All factors will be considered to decide on the best approach to the procedure. Dr. Blau utilizes advanced breast reduction techniques and can qualify you for advanced techniques at the time of consultation. Dr. Blau will also review a list of pre-operative and post operative instructions at the time of consultation so that you can be fully prepared to understand the tasks that you can perform to reduce the risk of breast reduction complications.

Complications are rare and can usually be medically managed should one arise including: infection, hematoma, and loss of sensation in the nipple area. Scars often fade over time. Patients that undergo breast reduction are usually satisfied with the results of the procedure and are comforted in knowing that they will not suffer from the limitations that they were confronted with before.

Breast Reduction Techniques:
A standard inverted T incision below the areola and extension around the edge of the areola is the traditional approach to breast reduction. Dr. Blau utilizes advanced techniques that may eliminate the need for the horizontal incision that is associated with the standard breast reduction technique. In fact, Dr. Blau focuses on maintaining your blood supply to the areola and breast tissue through the use of inferior or superior pedicels during the breast reduction surgery. This improves outcomes that could otherwise result in sensation loss. The procedure may be performed under general anesthesia or intra venus sedation and/or local anesthesia.

Breast Reduction and Breast Lift Combination:
Breast reduction may be performed with a breast lift to provide the most complimentary results when necessary. Breast lifts address breast sagginess and breast asymmetry. Dr. Blau can perform this procedure simultaneously to avoid the necessity of returning to the practice for a second procedure.
