About Breast Reduction at CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery
Whether your breasts have always been very large or if they became that way after pregnancy or weight gain, their size can significantly detract from your quality of life. Board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Anthony Deboni and Dr. Gregory Baum understand that reconstructive surgery can improve a woman’s whole outlook. They offer patients from Syracuse, Watertown and Utica breast reduction to relieve the physical and emotional pain associated with overly large breasts.
Insurance and Other Considerations
Unlike breast augmentation with breast implants in Syracuse, most breast reduction procedures are covered by health insurance. This is because, in most cases, overly large breasts are causing physical discomfort. Our staff are happy to help you determine insurance coverage for your procedure following the consultation. Breast reduction surgery takes a few hours and is performed as an outpatient procedure. Many patients are back to work in 1 to 2 weeks, and will be back to exercising in 4 to 6 weeks.
Breast reduction can benefit Syracuse, Watertown, and Utica women of all ages, as long as their breast development is complete. This extremely rewarding procedure, which often involves a breast lift or liposuction at our Syracuse area practice, provides both physical and emotional benefits including:
- Reducing overall breast size
- Achieving a more balanced, proportioned figure
- Increasing self-confidence
- Alleviating associated physical conditions such as rashes under the breasts, grooves in the shoulders, as well as neck, back, or shoulder pain
If you are planning to become pregnant or lose a significant amount of weight, your doctor might recommend that you delay your breast reduction until afterwards. During your consultation, Dr. Baum or Dr. Deboni will work with you to customize a treatment plan that is tailored to your unique anatomy, as well as your improvement goals and lifestyle.
