Breast Reduction

This woman needed a breast reduction desperately! At my New York practice, she complained about terrible back, neck, and shoulder pains, as well as bad rashes under the folds of her breasts. Interestingly, her nipple sensation improved with the operation. Plastic surgeons think this happens because there is less tension on the nerves with the reduced breast weight.

Patient Age: 

Bra Cup Size:
Reported DDD
She was clearly much larger!

Motivation for Breast Reduction Surgery:
Back pain
Neck pain
Bra strap grooves in the shoulders

Weight of Breast Tissue Removed With Breast Reduction:
2,085 grams from the right breast
1,550 grams from the left breast 

Breast Reduction Technique:
Wise pattern reduction
Dr. Sterry has never removed a woman's nipple for a breast reduction! In fact, this patient's nipple sensation improved after the operation.

She was back to work in 10 days but said she could have gone back sooner.
