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

Usually 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 Lift will be performed in Dr. Imber‘s Surgery center located in NYC.

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.

After Surgery

The post operative dressing is usually a surgical bra, and post operative pain is surprisingly minimal.

The level of patient satisfaction with both breast reduction and lift is very high. Scars fade with time, but never fully disappear. None-the-less, patients are delighted with the trade off.
