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

  • 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

H

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.
