Over my many years in practice I’ve helped countless women achieve a level of confidence and self-esteem they never thought possible, through breast reduction surgery. These women, ages twenties to mid-sixties, all have similar complaints: people fixated on their chest, irritating rashes under their breasts, bra straps cutting into their shoulders, and inhibiting proper exercise because they are carrying a “heavier load” than other women. It is never an easy decision to opt for elective surgery, but in my opinion, breast reduction surgery (reduction mammoplasty) for women with disproportionately large breasts is somewhat of a necessity, both cosmetically and healthwise.
At the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, in Paramus, NJ, breast reduction is among our most frequently performed surgeries. As a board certified plastic surgeon and medical director of our Center, I’ve been doing them for over 25 years. Performed by a skilled surgeon like myself, who underwent additional training in general surgery, it is capable of not only reducing breast volume (and weight, of course) but also improves their shape.
As part of our complete approach to your surgery you will receive extensive information on post- operative care, such as sleeping on your back during your first week back home, as well as wearing a surgical bra day and night for two to three weeks after your surgery. Generally, each breast is expected to heal at a different rate, and we want to assure you that this is entirely normal. Once healing is complete your breasts will not only look better, but will be extremely similar.
