Breasts that are large and disproportionate to a woman’s body can compromise their comfort and confidence daily. Heavy breasts put a strain on the woman’s body; they also limit the style of clothing that can be worn without the woman feeling overly exposed or embarrassed. Surgery safely reduces the breast into a size and shape that is complementary to the woman’s body. Dr. Craig A. Foster, a leading New York City surgeon, offers breast reduction surgery at his Manhattan practice. In addition to performing breast reduction for female patients, he also offers male breast reduction surgery.
Breast Reduction Surgery
Dr. Foster performs breast reduction surgery for several reasons. Some patients feel physically impaired by the size and weight of large breasts. Over time, their breasts have forced them to adopt a poor posture or alignment, and perhaps even alter exercise routines to accommodate their enlarged bust. The outcome of breast reduction surgery relieves their neck, back, and shoulders of significant volume – leading to improved posture, poise, and overall comfort. Other patients seek breast reduction surgery for purely aesthetic benefits – perhaps a desire for the breasts to harmoniously balance the rest of a slim, slender figure.
Dr. Foster’s artistic principles guide his work and result in a proportional bust line that meets his patients’ personal preferences.
Breast Reduction Techniques
Depending on the patient’s aesthetic and physical goals and dimensions, Dr. Foster can choose from a variety of popular, effective techniques for breast reduction surgery. The techniques vary in the location of the incision and resulting post surgical scarring. During the procedure, Dr. Foster removes excess breast tissue and sculpts the remaining tissue into the desired shape and size. He may also employ a breast lift technique, if that is included in the patient’s treatment plan.
Breast Reduction Procedure
Dr. Foster typically performs breast reduction at our New York City surgical center, located in Uptown Manhattan. Prior to the surgery, he will schedule an in-depth conversation with the patient to discuss their goals of the breast reduction. On the day of the surgery, Dr. Foster and his team will prep the patient for surgery. The procedure itself will take several hours, and often the patient may return home the night of the surgery.
Gynecomastia: Male Breast Surgery
Enlarged breasts can be an issue for men and women. Gynecomastia is the term used to describe excess breast tissue on the male chest. Many men feel uncomfortable and embarrassed with the appearance of protruding pectorals and loose skin in that area. Fortunately, Dr. Foster has a great deal of experience performing breast reduction surgery on men. If you’d like more information on gynecomastia, or male breast reduction surgery, please contact our New York practice.
