Breast Reduction

For many women with large breasts, discomfort can be a part of daily life, from irritation below the breasts to difficulty with sports and exercise to back and shoulder pain. For others, changes in the appearance and feel of the breasts over time, especially after pregnancy or weight gain, may lead you to want to take action. A breast reduction procedure can help you to restore your desired silhouette and minimize the physical impact of large breasts.

Breast reduction is a common procedure that can help to remove fat and tissue from the breasts, producing a smaller, lighter feel and appearance. Dr. Glasberg is a highly successful breast reduction surgeon specializing in exceptional results that not only feel and appear more comfortable but also natural, attractive and in balance with the overall form and shape of your body. He wins glowing accolades from his patients about the look and feel of their breasts, helping them to gain confidence, fit more easily into clothing and experience a new sense of freedom and comfort.

Am I a Good Candidate?

This procedure can be an excellent choice for an adult woman who wants to reduce the size of her breasts, even out an uneven appearance or address health concerns and pain that have arisen as a result of breast size. As Dr. Glasberg specializes in performing a unique and personalized procedure for every patient, he ensures that your procedure will result in smaller, lighter breasts that are well-suited to your frame. As a New York City breast reduction specialist, he can also work with you in order to meet your goals for lift, projection and perkiness as well.

This procedure is also a great option for women who are generally healthy and satisfied with their current weight. Weight loss can change the size of breasts, so women who are planning on significant future weight loss may wish to plan their surgery after weight loss to ensure the best possible results. In addition, if you are planning a pregnancy in the near future, you may wish to schedule the procedure after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Dr. Glasberg is a Manhattan breast reduction specialist who will present a detailed, personalized vision for your procedure and outcomes that reflects your goals for the appearance and size of your breasts.

The Experience

In planning your procedure and determining the right type of procedure to meet your needs and goals, Dr. Glasberg will work forward from your personal desires for your results. As a New York City breast reduction surgeon, Dr. Glasberg brings exceptional technical skills and a strong history of successful experience to ensure that the outcomes of your procedure in NYC will be beautiful, comfortable and confidence-building.

During your consultation, Dr. Glasberg will learn exactly what you wish to achieve from your surgery. This will include reviewing the types of procedures possible to help you achieve beautiful, natural results. The size and shape of your breasts and the desired amount of reduction can help him determine which procedure is right for you.

In a traditional incision reduction, Dr. Glasberg will remove skin, fat and tissue from the lower breast area while moving the nipples to a higher position, retaining their attachment to the nerves and blood vessels of the breast. In some cases, however, it may be necessary to completely reposition the nipple, depending on your priorities for surgical outcomes.

In a vertical incision reduction, on the other hand, Dr. Glasberg will make a lollipop-shaped incision around the areola and down the breast, removing skin and breast tissue. Following the procedure, the incision will be closed as excess skin is folded over itself.

Another option is scarless reduction, in which Dr. Glasberg will make only one small incision in the crease of the breast. This minimally invasive procedure then involves the insertion of a thin tube and liposuction of excess tissue. This technique can be used on its own or in conjunction with other types of breast procedures and leads to a nearly-invisible scar in an inconspicuous location.

Your Consultation

Dr. Glasberg will meet with you personally to discuss the possibilities for your procedure. This will include a review of your medical history, goals for outcomes and expectations. He will review your photos and before-and-after experiences with you to develop a customized plan for your breast reduction surgery.

As a highly experienced Manhattan breast reduction specialist, Dr. Glasberg will present realistic outcomes that reflect your desires, including the use of computer imaging that can demonstrate the possibilities. Dr. Glasberg will also review the recovery period, procedure and relevant risks.


The procedure itself will take approximately two hours. After your surgery, you may feel sore, swollen or bruised, and you should expect to wear bandages for two days after your surgery. You should expect to be able to return to work and normal daily activities after five days to a week, but you should keep activity to a minimum for one to two weeks, refraining from heavy lifting or strenuous exercise for three to four weeks.

A surgical bra can be work for one week, followed by sports bras and structured, padded bras. You can expect to see the final size and shape of your breasts following the procedure after around 12 weeks of full recovery.
