Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon Sheila A. Bond, M.D., F.A.C.S.
If you are a woman with heavy, overly large breasts, breast reduction surgery can greatly change your life for the better. Patients can expect relief from back, neck and shoulder pain, bra strap indentations and skin rashes under the breasts. You can anticipate unrestricted physical activity, better fitting clothing (no more safety pins between the buttons!) and freedom from self-conscious feelings about breast size. Breast reduction is one of the few “cosmetic” procedures that can be covered by insurance, if medical necessity can be proved. Our office will advise exactly what documentation you will need from you doctors to help gain approval from your insurance company to cover this surgery.
Dr. Sheila Bond performs the procedure under general anesthesia, in a fully accredited, state-of-the-art hospital. Breast reduction surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. Lasting approximately three hours, the surgery will leave you with “T” or “anchor” scar (one line straight down from the areola joined perpendicularly to another line hidden under the breasts . Excess breast tissue, fat and skin are removed where the incisions are made. The areolas will be made appropriately smaller to correspond to the smaller size of the new breasts, and will be repositioned higher on the breast. Scars will generally fade over time and will be improved with a scar control program.
Patients go home in a support bra with only light dressings over the incision lines. Sutures will self dissolve over time. Initial discomfort is controlled with oral medication. Light activities may be resumed in seven to ten days; however, you should avoid upper body exercise for at least four weeks. Most patients are back to work in 1-2 weeks with their new, smaller, lifted and lovelier breasts and a new attitude!
If you have been plagued with large breasts that have hindered physical activity or caused you embarrassment, breast reduction may be the answer for you. Call Dr. Sheila Bond today to obtain an appointment. This could be the most important decision you make this year. Call (973) 509-0007 today.
