Reduction Mammaplasty in NYC
Disproportionately large breasts can overpower a woman’s figure and cause physical and emotional problems. Big breasted women often struggle with neck, back, and shoulder pain, bra strap indentions, skin chafing and infection, and the inability to perform certain tasks such as jogging. A breast reduction with our female cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Victoria Karlinsky-Bellini, can balance your breasts and body shape and alleviate the issues you’ve faced due to macromastia (abnormally large breasts).
Schedule your one-on-one consultation with triple-board-certified Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini today by calling (855) 361-8492 to see if a breast reduction is right for you. New Look New Life Surgical Arts offers face, breast, and body cosmetic surgeries to patients in Manhattan and nearby NYC areas.
Is Breast Reduction Right for Me?
Debilitating pain and discomfort from overly large breasts can impact your ability to participate in sports and wear certain types of clothing. Many women are self-conscious of their large breast size, and breast reduction can alleviate many, if not all, of these symptoms. Breast reduction can be useful for women of any age who have fully developed breasts. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini also offers male breast reduction for men with gynecomastia, a condition in which breast tissue overdevelops causing enlarged breasts and sensitivity.
During your consultation, Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will listen to your concerns and develop a surgical plan to best accomplish your goals for a well-balanced figure. Your breast reduction surgery will be scheduled shortly after your in-office consultation.
The Breast Reduction Procedure
Breast reduction surgery begins with the removal of excess breast tissue from the top and sides of the breast through a series of incisions around the nipples (areolas) to reach the ideal size and shape. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will then reposition and center the breast tissue and nipples to achieve a youthful, lifted placement. Some scarring will be concealed in the darker pigment of the areolas while others will fade over time.
The procedure is performed at our surgical facility and takes approximately three hours. No overnight stay is required. You can rest in our comfortable suite before going home with a friend or family member. You will need help for the first 24-48 hours, and Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini is available to answer any questions or concerns during your recovery. She gives out her cell phone number to patients so you can rest assured you’re in good hands and have the ability to contact your cosmetic surgeon.
As with any invasive surgery, there are some risks with breast reduction, including infection, bleeding, and poor scarring, which is another reason why patients are advised to call Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini immediately with concerns. The breast reduction procedure overall is a safe and effective way to reduce breast size permanently.
Recovering from Breast Reduction
We understand that our Manhattan patients have busy lifestyles and schedules, and you’ll likely be able to return to work after week one of recovery. You’ll need to get plenty of rest and avoid putting a strain on your new breasts. Avoid bending, stretching, lifting, and running until told otherwise. You will have a follow-up appointment at New Look New Life Surgical Arts the day after your breast reduction and again a week later. Over the following weeks and months, bruising, swelling, and scarring will fade, and nipple sensation will return gradually.
Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will go over your pre- and post-operative instructions. That will include quitting smoking for at least 10-14 days before breast reduction surgery as well as avoiding medications that thin the blood and NSAIDs including aspirin, Advil, Aleve, and Ibuprofen.
Breast Reduction Results
Many of our breast reduction patients are thrilled with their smaller, firmer, and more proportionate breasts. Your results will be noticeable right away, and as you heal, you’ll continue to notice and enjoy the freedom of smaller breasts. You will be able to wear clothing that wasn’t an option before and enjoy activities that were previously painful and limited due to your large breasts.
Breast reduction results are permanent, but weight gain, pregnancy, and other factors can impact your breast size in the future. Some patients may need or want a breast lift, later on, to address breast drooping and sagging that occurs with age and body changes.
The Cost of Breast Reduction
Breast reduction at New Look New Life Surgical Arts starts as low as $9,500. A detailed quote will be provided during your consultation, so you understand the full cost of the procedure. This pricing involves anesthesia fees, facility and operating expenses, recovery garments, and your surgeon’s fees. The cost of your breast reduction also includes all follow-up visits during recovery. We offer financing information to help patients learn more.
