EXCELLENCE AND EXPERIENCE IN PLASTIC SURGERY

Breast Reduction

Based in New York City

This procedure reduces the size of overly large, pendulous breasts, to a size and shape in harmony with an individual’s body. There are many reasons to seek breast reduction, and a few variations on how it is performed.

Dr. Imber’s Tips!

In all the years I’ve been performing breast reductions no one has complained about scars, which rapidly fade. The change in body image, lifestyle, and new confidence make for a happy patient.

Breast Reduction Procedure

Breast ReductionUsually performed under general anesthesia, or sedation and local, the operation is fairly extensive due to the dense nature of breast tissue and volume being removed. Try to visualize the operation as taking a wedge out of a large pie, and then reforming the remainder into a smaller whole. There are many incision options, which depend on anatomy, surgeon preference, and patient preference.

Your Breast Reduction will be performed in Dr. Imber‘s Surgery center located in NYC.

Breast Reduction FAQ’s

What is a Breast Reduction?

Breast Reduction reduces the size of overly large, pendulous breasts, to a size and shape in harmony with an individual’s body. There are many reasons to seek breast reduction, and a few variations on how it is performed.

What are the goals of a Breast Reduction?

Goals vary for each of my patients but the focus is to create balance between breast size and the individuals’ body.

What type of anesthesia will I receive?

Breast Reduction can be performed under general anesthesia.

How long will recovery take? 

Everyone recovers differently and we assess progress at your post-operative appointment. There can be pain and discomfort post-operation but it varies for everyone.

Are there any non-invasive alternatives?

Smaller reductions can be performed with liposuction. 

Do I need any special garment or bindings?

After Breast Reduction, a surgical bra is worn as a dressing.

Why do I need a board certified plastic surgeon?

A board certified plastic surgeon holds the highest levels of education and training needed to deliver the best results. This qualification is not easy to achieve, so by using a board-certified plastic surgeon, you also know they meet the standards of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Will there be any scarring? 

Scars fade with time, but never fully disappear. None-the-less, patients are delighted with the tradeoff.

How much does a Breast Reduction cost?

Any question you have regarding procedure costs can be discussed during your consultation at Dr. Imber’s office.

He is very thorough, meticulous, detail oriented and you cannot negotiate services or anything with him. It’s his way or the highway. I had a lot of work done years ago long before plastic surgery was so common. My daughter went to him last year for lipo and he is exactly as thorough and precise as he was then. If you are a Botox junkie looking for quick fixes on the cheap, he probably won’t be right for you. His work is very subtle, understated, natural and undetectable.
