Breast Reduction

This is a 32-year-old woman who came in stating, "I NEED a breast reduction!" Her job requires a lot of manual labor, and the weight of her 44 J cup breasts was contributing to neck pain, shoulder pain, and difficulty wearing almost any kind of stylish clothing. She had to have her bras tailor-made for her at specialty shops around New York.

During her breast reduction operation at my New York practice, I was able to remove 7 pounds of breast tissue and keep the nipple attached to her breast pedicle throughout the procedure. Postoperatively she has full nipple sensation and is now down to a large D cup bra (depending on the manufacturer).  

Patient Age:

Starting Bra Size:
44 J Cup

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

Weight of Breast Tissue Removed With Breast Reduction:
1,400 grams from the right breast
1,734 grams from the left breast 

Breast Reduction Technique:
Wise pattern reduction
Note: Dr. Sterry does not remove the nipple for this operation.

About 10 days.
Her employer kept her out of work for 6 weeks.

Dr. Sterry tries to give every breast reduction patient a nice result that they will be proud of. If you live in New York City and are interested in finding out what results are possible for you, request an appointment by filling out the form on this page or call (212) 249-4020.
