NY Breast Reduction Before and After - Dr. Suzman Plastic Surgery
Breast Reduction Results
Breast Reduction before and after photos of a Dr. Suzman Breast Reduction Patient. She was bothered by heavy, drooping breasts that caused pressure n her shoulders, bra straps, neck and back. Surgery was performed at the Rye Ambulatory Surgery Center, and took about 2 hours. The patient went home later that same day. The technique used is called a superior-medial pattern, where the nipple remains attached to breast tissue behind and above it, and the extra weight below and around is removed. This also gives the surgeon the opportunity to reduce the areola size. In this case, the areola was reduced to about 4.5cm, which is appropriate for the new breast shape. Scars are healing very well, though they do take a year or longer to fade fully. More
Breast Reduction or Lift?
This patient had the size and weight of the breasts reduced. She also had a lift, where the shape of the breasts is raised and shaped in a more rounded fashion. This means less "droop" and a better shape and comfort with or without clothing.
Sometimes surgeons perform a lift only- where extra skin is removed but no breast tissue. This is for patients with droop, but not much breast volume. This a more common procedure after weight loss or pregnancy related changes in the breast shape.
In this case, we achieved much lift as well as reduction and have a beautiful outcome and happy patient. No implants were needed
The patient used Incision Plus Peptide Complex gel for scar management in addition to early post surgery steri strip tape support. Scars are now minimal.
