WHAT WAS DONE?

  • Breast Reduction

HER STORY

A is a 26 year old lady who suffered constant shoulder and neck strain from the large breasts she was given with. These large pendulous breasts not only caused periodic rashes underneath but also prevented her from finding clothes she wanted to wear. Most of her bra had to be custom-made and she complained the lack of selection and design of those bras.

When she came for consultation, we discussed the size she wanted and the placement of incision and the likely course of recovery. Having done much homework in the past, she asked many good questions regarding details like reduction of areolar size, amount of weight she would like to lose, and the new cup size she would like to be. She signed up for surgery at her first consultation and had a vertical pattern breast reduction. She went home the same day after surgery and was thrilled with her results. On follow up visits, she no longer feels the burden of her heavy breasts, her nipples no longer point down and she is in love with the projection!


BEFORE AND AFTER


I’ve always had pretty large breast since middle school and they always made me feel uncomfortable. Eventually I started to grow into them, but during college I gained a significant amount of weight and they doubled. I was probably a 36C in high school and jumped to a 36DD after. While everyone said I should be thankful, I didn’t feel that way at all. It was difficult to wear certain shirts, dress and buy coats. I ended up losing about 20lbs and my breast size decreased to a 36D, but I had a ridiculous amount of loose skin and my breast sagged really bad. I started looking into breast lifts and reductions around 22 or 23 years of age and finally, at 26, I found the right doctor at Lenox Hill for a reasonable quote. I’ve had over four consultations and Lenox Hill’s Dr. Lao is probably one of the best surgeons I’ve met. He made me feel so confident and comfortable and he took his time with me. Any questions I had or information I needed, he provided. My surgery was on Friday, but I’m already pleased with my results. No one’s breasts are perfect, but he truly worked magic!
