Overly large breasts can be a cause of extreme discomfort in the neck, shoulders and back. Also, the breasts can lose their youthful firmness due to age, pregnancy, or breast feeding. A breast reduction/lift can relieve the pain as well as improve the appearance.
Dr. Heller and Dr. Cuber specialize in breast lift and reduction and carefully analyze each patient to determine exactly what has to be done during the breast surgery procedure. There are several important techinal aspects to this procedure and our physicians have decades of experience performing this procedure on a regular basis. It is vital to remove enough breast tissue to relieve the symptoms while producing a natural, more youthful result.
During the procdure, incisions are created to lift the breasts and give a firmer, tighter appearance. The recovery is about 10-14 days due to swelling, but the pain is usually mild in nature. The incisions, while often a cause for concern with many patients, usually fade within 6-12 months, and result is definitely worth it.
Sometimes, insurance may cover breast reduction surgery, but the process to get the surgery covered can be difficult, and coverage is not always guaranteed.
