How Reducing Breast Size Can Benefit New York Women

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, can bring tremendous relief to the NYC area women who suffer from uncomfortably large breasts. At Cosmoplastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kaveh Alizadeh performs breast reduction surgery to diminish neck and back pain, thoracic outlet syndrome, skeletal deformities, bra shoulder-strap grooving, skin rashes or irritation, and excessive sweating under the breasts.

Why Choose Cosmoplastic Surgery For Breast Reduction?

Dr. Alizadeh has spent over 20 years perfecting his technique for NYC breast reduction surgery to minimize breast reduction scars, reduce recovery time, and improve the overall breast appearance following surgery.

It's his true passion.

In addition, Dr. Alizadeh is the innovator and pioneer of NaturaBra™ Breast surgery, which uses a patient's own tissue for long-term support of the breast shape. Worldwide, Dr. Alizadeh has the most experience performing this procedure and has presented his results at respected international society symposia such as American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Alizadeh has now evidence of his technique lasting over 15 years via careful follow up of his patients.

The Breast Reduction Consultation Process

During your breast reduction consultation in NYC or Long Island, you will meet with Dr. Alizadeh, who serves as Chief of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Westchester Medical Center and Associate Professor of Surgery at New York Medical College.

After a thorough discussion and examination, Dr. Alizadeh will perform an assessment of your breast parameters with the help of VECTRA® 3D Analysis, which enables you to see a simulated image of potential surgical results. He will then explain in detail the following options so that together you can create a treatment plan to meet your needs:

  • Final desired breast size and shape
  • Incision locations
  • Implant options (if needed)
  • Use of biomaterials for added support

What To Expect During Breast Reduction Surgery

With Dr. Alizadeh's surgical team, you can expect the highest level of professionalism, hands-on care, surgical excellence, and rapid recovery. Your surgery will be performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia, and it typically requires one to four hours to complete, depending on the size of your breasts and the amount of excess skin, fat, or breast tissue to remove.

Dr. Alizadeh performs all surgical procedures in fully equipped, state-of-the-art facilities certified by the Joint Commission for Accreditation of Hospital Organizations or the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. He works closely with a trusted, experienced, board-certified anesthesiologist who will oversee your entire procedure to ensure your safety and rapid recovery from anesthesia.

Your surgery will begin with a circular incision around the nipple or areola and a straight, vertical incision from the areola to the base of the breast. Patients with larger breasts may also need an additional horizontal incision along the base of the breast to remove all loose skin that surrounds the extra breast tissue. Once Dr. Alizadeh has removed the breast tissue, fat, and excess skin, he may, depending on your individual needs, insert a breast implant for additional shape or tissue scaffolding for long-term support.

He then closes the incisions with absorbable sutures or biological glues so there is no need to remove any stitches later on, and patients can shower the day after surgery. He also uses long-acting anesthetics such as EXPAREL® to help maximize your recovery and comfort.

Most patients are able to return to common daily activities and non-lifting jobs within a week following surgery. You should refrain from all vigorous activity for up to six weeks. Dr. Alizadeh and his staff will provide detailed pre- and post-surgical instructions prior to surgery. Results from breast reduction will last a lifetime, but many patients find that weight loss, weight gain, or pregnancy do alter their results. Aging and gravity may also affect your long-term outcomes.
