Dr. Joshua A. Greenwald
While most women seek to increase the size of their breasts, some women find that their natural breasts are too large, causing pain to their back and shoulders due to the extra weight and the pull on their bra. For these women, breast reduction performed by renowned breast augmentation surgeon Dr. Greenwald can relieve painful symptoms while restoring a youthful shape to the breasts and raising the nipples to a more natural position.
Breast Reduction Surgery
Dr. Greenwald performs breast reduction surgery at his Westchester County surgical facilities, where he also provides breast lift, breast reconstruction, and breast implant revisions. The breast reduction surgery is typically performed using general anesthesia and lasts several hours. Because breast reduction is often considered a medical rather than purely cosmetic procedure, it is often covered by medical insurance.
Depending on the size and shape of the breasts, Dr. Greenwald uses a variety of incisions and techniques in order to obtain the best optimum results for breast reduction patients. In most cases, he makes three incisions: one around the areolae, one vertically from the areolae to the inframammary folds (the creases at the bottom of the breasts), and one horizontally beneath the breasts. Next, he removes excess skin and tissue before suturing the incisions. For women who require a small reduction and have few stretch marks, various “short scar” techniques allow for the elimination of the incision underneath the breasts. In these cases, Dr. Greenwald may use liposuction to assist in the removal of tissue.
In some instances, Dr. Greenwald may be able to perform lipo-breast reduction. In these cases, the breast reduction is performed using only liposuction through small incisions, resulting in virtually no scars. Women who qualify for lipo-breast reduction are those who have good skin quality and require only minimal elevation of the nipples.
