Breast Reduction Port Jefferson Station, NY
Large breasts can cause neck and/or back pain, rashes, and difficulty with activities. Breast reduction surgery is usually done to provide relief from these symptoms. Performed under general anesthesia, the two hour procedure removes fat and glandular tissue and tightens skin to produce smaller, lighter breasts that are in better proportion to the rest of the body.
Breast reduction surgery is not recommended for women who intend to breast-feed, since many of the milk ducts leading to the nipples are removed.
For a few days after surgery women wear a surgical bra. The sutures are all dissolvable.
Scars fade with time but will not disappear, they can be hidden with a bra or bathing suit.
As with most surgery complications are uncommon. Your doctor will explain them to you during your consultation.
