Large breasts can affect your looks, quality of life and self-esteem. Our White Plains breast reduction with Dr. Reinblatt can sculpt smaller, more manageable breasts, while minimizing the pain and discomfort associated with your larger chest.
You have three main options when it comes to your Westchester breast reduction: anchor, vertical or scarless:
This traditional approach involves an incision around the areola, down the breast and along the bottom crease. It allows Dr. Reinblatt to address excess skin and fat, and resize the areola.
With this technique, Dr. Reinblatt will make an incision around the areola and down the breast to remove excess skin and fat. This approach also allows for the areola to be resized.
The scarless approach involves removing fatty breast tissue via liposuction. The tiny incisions are placed along the creases of the breasts. It's not ideal for patients who have sagging, poor elasticity, low nipples or minimal breast fat.
Dr. Reinblatt will perform your breast reduction under general anesthesia and as an outpatient procedure. To begin, she will make the incisions that were discussed during your initial consultation.
If the anchor or vertical incisions are made, Dr. Reinblatt will remove skin, fat and tissue from the lower area of the breasts. She will then bring the skin down to reshape your chest. If necessary, she will reposition your nipples to a higher position on the breasts. This may or may not require removing the nipples and grafting them to their new location. Once complete, she will close the incisions with sutures.
If you're reducing the size of your breasts via liposuction, Dr. Reinblatt will create small incisions in the breasts. Through those openings, she will move a cannula back and forth to break up and remove the excess fatty tissue.
Once your breasts have been reduced and reshaped, Dr. Reinblatt with cover your chest in sterile dressings and provide you with a surgical bra to promote healing.
Westchester patients who are having a breast reduction before getting pregnant, or those that are planning on getting pregnant again, often want to know about the impact this procedure can have on their ability to breastfeed.
There is a slight chance that you will not be able to breastfeed after surgery, but it depends largely on the surgical approach used. If you want to preserve your ability to nurse, Dr. Reinblatt will use a vertical incision, because it ensures that a portion of the nipple remains connected to the milk ducts. She will avoid the anchor approach, which can increase your risk of breastfeeding challenges.
If you have more fatty tissue than glandular tissue, Dr. Reinblatt will perform liposuction for your breast reduction. With this procedure, your risk of breastfeeding challenges due to the procedure will be completely avoided.
