Life-changing Breast Reduction in New York City
Breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, is among the most life-changing cosmetic surgical procedures. Women who have undergone breast reduction with New York City plastic surgeon Matthew Schulman, M.D., experience a new lease on life following surgery. Relief from discomfort, improved mobility, weight loss, and enhanced breast shape are just a few of the benefits women enjoy after breast reduction.
Is Breast Reduction Surgery Right for Me?
Women who undergo breast reduction seek relief from the physical and emotional discomfort caused by having large, heavy breasts. Reduction mammoplasty can help:
- Reduce breast size
- Enhance breast contour
- Relieve back and neck pain, shoulder strain, skin irritation, and other medical conditions associated with enlarged breasts
- Refine nipple shape and size
- Improve self image
- Increase participation in activities
During your consultation, Dr. Schulman will ask you about your medical and cosmetic goals. He will discuss anesthesia options, facility choices, and recovery. Together, you and Dr. Schulman will decide on the best approach to your breast reduction procedure.
When you come in for your consultation, you may also request that Dr. Schulman help prepare documentation to submit expenses to your insurance carrier for reimbursement.
The Breast Reduction Procedure
Dr. Schulman performs breast reduction surgery in a state-of-the-art facility in New York City. During the procedure, Dr. Schulman will remove excess breast tissue and reshape the breasts to create a smaller, firmer, and lifted bust line. Dr. Schulman utilizes advanced techniques that minimize scarring. Depending on your unique physical needs and cosmetic goals, he may use the inverted T or “anchor” incision, vertical mammoplasty or “lollipop” incision, liposuction, or a combination to reduce breast size and enhance breast shape.
