Who is a Candidate for Poughkeepsie Breast Reduction Surgery?
Healthy men and women who are looking to improve the aesthetic of their oversized breasts are excellent candidates for breast reduction surgery. Ideal patients are in good overall health and have realistic expectations of what this surgery can accomplish.

We always place patient safety first and carefully screen patients to determine their candidacy. Your surgeon will recommend the best course of treatment to reduce the risk of complications while delivering the best aesthetic results.

Breast reduction surgery is designed to help patients alleviate a number of concerns related to having overly large breasts, including:

  • Excessive sagging or drooping
  • Back, shoulder, and neck pain
  • Self-consciousness
  • Indentations caused by the bra-strap
  • Inability to wear certain types of clothing


What is the Recovery like from Breast Reduction Surgery?
Breast reduction typically takes two to four hours to complete and is performed under general anesthesia, or local anesthesia combined with a sedative. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. Breast reduction surgery is ideal for those patients whose breasts are fully developed.

Patients with certain medical conditions and those who are intending to breastfeed can discuss their options with their plastic surgeon at the initial breast reduction surgery consultation.

During breast reduction, your plastic surgeon will make an anchor-shaped incision from the area of the nipple down to the crease of the breast. Excess tissue, fat, and skin are removed, and the nipple and areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple) are repositioned.

The breasts are reshaped with skin from around the areola and the incisions are then closed. Liposuction may be necessary to eliminate excess fat from the armpit area. In some cases, liposuction alone may be the only technique necessary for breast reduction.

You will be fitted with a surgical bra designed to bind the breasts for a few days after surgery. This should facilitate the healing process and help to ensure the best possible results. If necessary, some patients may be provided drainage tubes to remove any excess fluid.

Stitches are typically removed after one week, unless dissolvable stitches are used in which case no removal is necessary. A post-surgical bra must be worn for about a month after the procedure to ensure proper healing.

Patients can expect some discomfort, swelling and bruising after breast reduction surgery. These side effects can be alleviated with medication. Normal daily routines can generally be resumed after about two weeks, although heavy lifting and strenuous activities should be avoided for at least three to four weeks after the procedure.

Only the most advanced techniques are employed by our renowned team of double Board Certified breast reduction surgeons and every effort will be made to minimize scars, ensuring that any residual scarring can often be easily hidden by undergarments. Detailed postoperative and aftercare instructions will be provided to each patient.
