After pregnancy or excessive weight loss, many women end up with oversized, sagging breasts. In addition to being an aesthetic issue, breasts that are overly large can cause physical discomfort and emotional stress. The plastic surgeons at bodySCULPT®, a leading Manhattan-based plastic surgery practice, provide customized breast reduction surgery to help women resolve issues related to oversized breasts. The procedure can effectively reduce the size of the breasts and result in a shape that is more proportionate to the body. The treatment can:
- Reduce breast size and weight
- Enhance breast contour
- Reduce the size of the areolas
- Correct breast asymmetry
In reduction mammoplasty, as the procedure is also called, excess breast tissue and skin are removed and the breasts are reshaped. The entire nipple and areola complex is restored to a more aesthetically pleasing position. Women are provided with breasts that are proportionate to their height and overall weight.
The surgeons are also skilled in male breast reduction procedures to resolve gynecomastia, the condition of abnormally large breasts in men. The treatment is aimed at providing a well-sculpted, manly chest.
Proven traditional treatment methods are integrated with the latest in technologies to provide patients with the desired outcome. The skilled plastic surgeons at this AAAASF-accredited surgical facility perform liposuction to eliminate excess fat from the breast area and tighten the skin. The treatment is performed using SmartLipo Triplex, the advanced lipolysis system from Cynosure or BodyTite RFAL (radio frequency assisted liposuction).
The breast surgeons evaluate the individual’s medical history, current health conditions as well as goals regarding breast size and appearance. Innovative 3D imaging technologies – VECTRA 3D and Axis Three – enhance the consultation experience as it allows patients to visualize the results before the surgery takes place. The dedicated team of surgical technicians and support staff at the practice ensure personalized attention for each patient before, during, and after the surgery.
Specialized in cosmetic breast surgery, the surgeons at this practice are also experienced in procedures such as breast augmentation with implants, composite breast augmentation, and breast lift.
