Breast reduction surgery is an extremely rewarding procedure that can help both women and men alike to rid themselves of the debilitating and sometimes embarrassing effects of overly large breasts. Our breast reduction patients are usually first led to our office when the problems associated with their large breasts become a bother. The skilled and specialty-trained plastic surgeons at LIPSG can help you attain breasts that are a more comfortable size and are more flattering to your overall appearance. At our Aesthetic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery Center here at the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, many of our doctors have a specific focus on breast surgery procedures. Our commitment is to safe, effective breast reduction procedures and an outcome that makes you look and feel better than you imagined.
Breast reduction surgery is designed to help women alleviate a number of concerns related to having overly large breasts, including:
- Excessive sagging or drooping
- Back, shoulder, and neck pain
- Indentations caused by the bra-strap
- Inability to wear certain types of clothing
The goal of breast reduction surgery is to correct these and other issues you may be experiencing because of breasts that are too large and having an effect on your appearance, self-esteem, and general comfort. At the time of your initial consultation, you will have an opportunity to discuss all aspects of breast reduction surgery and any specific concerns about your breasts with your selected LIPSG plastic surgeon. You will also be given the opportunity to see the possible outcome of your procedure before even stepping foot inside the operating room. With state-of-the-art 3-D Vectra imaging technology, our plastic surgeon can show you a computer-generated model incorporating photos and information compiled to form a graphic image of the likely results.
For men who are affected by overly large breasts, male breast reduction surgery (gynecomastia), is also available. Our doctors at LIPSG can provide effective breast reduction for men who are experiencing this common condition.
Some cases of breast reduction surgery may be covered by insurance. Our staff here at LIPSG will assist you with contacting your insurance representative to determine if your policy covers or partially covers breast reduction procedures.
