Breast Reduction

While there are many women who visit our practice for breast augmentation to fill out their figure, there are also many people who seek cosmetic surgery to correct breasts that are too large. When breasts are too large for your body structure, you may suffer needlessly. Breast reduction surgery in our state-of-the-art New York City facility can help you regain more comfort, eliminating problems like:
  • Skin irritation under breast creases
  • Shoulder and neck pain, back aches, and chronic headaches
  • Challenges with maintaining proper posture
  • Irritation or indentations from bra straps rubbing or pulling
  • Difficulty exercising or performing certain activities comfortably
  • Numbness or tingling in the hands due to poor circulation or pinched nerves

The primary cause of large breasts is simple genetics that allows for the deposit of excess fatty tissue in this area of the body. Some people find that breasts enlarged from excess weight remain even after a normal body weight has been achieved through diet and exercise. Regardless of the underlying reasons breasts are too large for comfort, there are effects that may make breast reduction with your New York City cosmetic surgeon ideal. In addition to the physical discomforts mentioned, large breasts may also lead to:
  • The need to wear oversized clothing in order to be comfortable
  • A desire to detract attention from the body by wearing oversized clothing
  • Feeling as though people look at your breasts rather than your face when interacting
  • Limitations in mobility in arm movements because breasts get in the way
  • Feeling anxious over situations in which a bathing suit or more revealing clothing may be worn

What our patients say


I’m a patient there since 2000.About 5 weeks ago I had breast reduction and breast lift. What a fast recovery!! I was able to go back to work after 4days of my surgery. I had terrible pain on my back and shoulder (because of weight on my breast) now all the pains are gone. The shape just came out beautiful Dr.Kwan did such a amazing job. He called and checked on me how I was doing after 2days the surgery. (I was so impressed) also I’m so pleased about their staffs. Rebecca the manager there, I know her since 2000 she was so nice the whole time She constantly called checking on me. She explained to me what I should do before and after the surgery so kindly. The whole time I felt so comfortable and pleased. I feel like I’m living new life again!

Great doctor and great team!!!
Thank you for all!!!

Gaining comfort through the breast reduction procedure

As part of the breast reduction procedure, Dr. Kwan focuses on reducing the volume of the breasts and lifting them so as to minimize the weight supported by the neck, back, and shoulders. The tissue from the breast is removed and later sculpted to give it back its rounded and natural shape. Areolas, as well, are perfected to the most appropriate proportions with the breasts. Though there is a possibility for decreased sensations, most people do retain feeling in the nipples following breast reduction surgery.

Dr. Kwan's field expertise also allows him to accurately ascertain a breast size which provides relief and is suited to your ideal body contours. In the hands of a skilled cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Edmund Kwan, you can find greater satisfaction with your shape and size.

  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - reviews by Tina R
    Dr. Kwan is by far the most talented surgeon I have EVER crossed paths with. I came to Dr. Kwan after an under eye fat transplant, performed 'by another' plastic surgeon, which deformed my face. It was only until I was under Dr.Kwan's care that the deformity was corrected. Dr. Kwan literally gave me back my beauty. This was a priceless feeling. That was about 4 years ago, I can assure you ever since- Dr. Kwan is the ONLY plastic surgeon I trust my face and body to. I look forward to my body contouring procedure coming up in a few weeks!! :)
  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - Reviews Mascha N
    The staff treated me very kindly, with respect and genuine smiles. Dr Kwan is a real professional in my opinion. He took the time to listen to my story, addressed my concerns and took his time to walk me through the process and give me his opinion and explanation on his recommendation. I had my surgery in his practice and we went over everything again before I met up with the anesthesiologist, who was equally as nice and professional as everyone else at his practice. We started counting bikes ... and after bike #6 I fell a sleep. When I woke up, he was there to tell me I did great and before I knew it I was in a taxi cab back home with my best friend who came to pick me up. So I don't know if this is typical, but I had no pain whatsoever after the surgery. . I am very very happy with the results. Dr Kwan did an amazing job and I couldn't be more pleased.

    I was involved in an automobile accident last May, 2013. The outcome from the emergency room left me with 5 stitches on the bridge of my nose, and the tip of my nose was missing due to the severe impact of the accident. I called and scheduled an appointment to visit Dr. Kwan so he could assess my nose. Upon arriving to the office, I was immediately impressed with the facility, service, and professionalism of his staff. Dr. Kwan met with me and examined my nose and in detail, he explained the approach he would take in order to get my nose like brand new again.On the day of my surgery, I was met by Dr Kwan, who performed the surgery, himself. His Anesthesiologist was very informative and professional as well. The outcome of Phase 1 was a success. In addition to that, the staff even called my medication into the pharmacy that way it would be ready as soon as I left the office. My nose is 98% back to normal, I now look forward to Phase 2 to be completed. After that procedure is done I am positive my nose will look absolutely perfect and I will be back to my confident self again. Thanks Dr Kwan and Staff.

    I have had several surgeries with Dr Kwan, and would recommend him highly. Liposuction of abdomen and love handles came out smooth. Upper eyelids look younger and refreshed, and the Basal Cell Cancer he cut out of my nose is not even visible, despite the fact that it was right along the rim of my left nostril.
  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - Reviews T. Cannon
    I have been using Dr Kwan for over 10 years now. I have had many different procedures and all of them have turned out great. One of the breast augmentations had a crimp in the left breast and he had no problem going in to revise it to assure my satisfaction. I have always liked the way he answers each of my concerns and we go over everything for each procedure I've done several times to assure we are on the same page :) Take a list of any questions or concerns and I guarantee you will love your results no matter what procedure he is doing for you! .
