Breast reduction surgery is a popular option for both men and women, and Dr. Cohen works closely with patients to understand their unique needs for breast reduction. Women with large breasts can experience back and shoulder pain and have difficulty exercising because of the weight of their breasts, while men with excess breast tissue can be self-conscious about the look and feel of their chest.
During the procedure, an incision is made to remove the extra breast tissue and skin, which is then surgically removed. Liposuction may also be used to remove the tissue, if necessary. Depending on the amount removed, the breast and nipple may be lifted to achieve the most natural look.
After the surgery, it is recommended that patients take a few days to rest and gradually resume normal activity, while avoiding strenuous physical activity for about six weeks. There may be some minor swelling during recovery, but once it subsides, patients are left with lighter, more defined chests.
Dr. Cohen is committed to ensuring her patients are informed and comfortable with their decision. Below, you will find a link to our frequently asked questions. If you would like to discuss this procedure further, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
