Dr. Breitbart performs plastic surgery in an accredited outpatient facility or at the hospital for breast reduction. Long Island patients typically receive general anesthesia for this procedure. It can take two to three hours for this plastic surgery. Long Island surgeon Dr. Breitbart creates a lollipop or T incision around the nipple that extends down towards the fold under the breast. After carefully removing excess breast tissue, he repositions the nipple and areola on the breast, creating a youthful appearance. After surgery for
breast reduction, Long Island patients can return home accompanied by friends or family members.
In general, most patients can return to work within a week although strenuous activity should be avoided for at least six weeks after this plastic surgery. Long Island patients will experience some temporary lack of sensation around the nipple area initially and scarring that will fade over time. After plastic surgery, Long Island
patients notice that they are able to fit into clothes better and have a more proportionate figure. Patients immediately look and feel much better from breast reduction. Long Island
patients enjoy an enhanced quality of life with greater self-confidence post-surgery.
