Breast Reduction

 

Jump To:

At Aesthetic Plastic Surgery North Shore, among our happiest patients are always those who have had a breast reduction. Women with large, heavy breasts often seek out this procedure to help relieve neck, back, and shoulder pain. A breast reduction reduces and reshapes the breast while positioning the nipple in a more desirable location. By removing breast fat, tissue, and excess skin, Dr. Hadaegh is able to improve the overall appearance of your breasts while maintaining appropriate proportions and a feminine look.

“Best decision, I have ever made in my whole life!

5 5 Star Rating Written onJune 27, 2019 Dr. Hadaegh, I want to thank you for the excellent job you did on my reduction. Going into it all and going to a very negative surgeon at first, I couldn’t be happier I was sent to you! When people ask me if I’m happy, I say, ‘this is the best decision, I have ever made in my whole life!” I still can’t believe I was in very minimal pain! But thank you so much, I really can’t thank you enough! I have already recommended you to four people and will continue! Thanks again!

The Consultation

During your consultation, Dr. Hadaegh will ask you about your medical history and any other procedures you’ve had. He will also ask you about the medications you take. If you take NSAIDs like ibuprofen or aspirin, it is important to stop taking them before your surgery, as they can increase the risk of bleeding. Dr. Hadaegh will also examine your breasts and determine a specific treatment plan in order to meet your goals and expectations. If you have any questions about your breast reduction, like which technique he will use or how long the surgery will take, be sure to ask during your consultation.

You may experience soreness, swelling, and/or bruising after your procedure. Dr. Hadaegh may prescribe medication to help ease your discomfort for the first few days. Typically, you can return to work and some of your normal daily activities seven to ten days after your breast reduction. Generally, swelling should start to dissipate between four to six weeks after surgery. It is important to refrain from any strenuous activities, such as heavy lifting, intense exercise, and more, until Dr. Hadaegh gives you the okay to do so. Typically, you will be able to see full results from your breast reduction a few months after your procedure.
