New York Plastic Surgeon Reveals All About Breast Reduction
Daniel Y. Maman, MD of 740 Park Plastic Surgery highlights what prospective patients can typically expect before, during, and after breast reduction surgery.
New York, NY — Breasts that are excessively large in relation to a one’s frame can be both physically and psychologically troubling for many women, states Dr. Daniel Y. Maman, a board certified plastic surgeon in NYC. Some of the most common issues that relate to this condition include chronic neck and back pain, frequent headaches, poor posture, irritating rashes, and even a moderate to significant diminishment of self-image and esteem. Furthermore, he says some women may even experience some level of discomfort when wearing certain articles of clothing or participating in specific activities.
At 740 Park Plastic Surgery, Dr. Maman and his partner, Dr. Stafford R. Broumand, offer breast reduction surgery to help women alleviate the concerns associated with overly large breasts while achieving a more proportionate, rejuvenated figure. During the consultation process for patients considering breast reduction, Dr. Maman notes that the individual’s unique needs, goals, and overall expectations will be thoroughly assessed to determine whether or not she is a good candidate for surgery. If she is qualified, he says every aspect of the procedure will be explained in full detail to ensure the patient has a complete understanding of what to expect based on her particular indications and desires.
During the procedure, Dr. Maman explains that he aims to perform the most modern, least invasive breast reduction technique possible. In many instances, he says he is able to bridge the gap between a traditional breast reduction (designed specifically to decrease the volume of the breasts) and an aesthetically advantageous mastopexy (intended to lift and rejuvenate the appearance of the breasts). As a result, he adds that most women can achieve a more youthful-looking breast aesthetic in addition to receiving physical relief from the weight and inconvenience of disproportionately large breasts.
Following breast reduction surgery, Dr. Maman states that “women are often pleasantly surprised to find that recuperation is not as significant as they thought it might be.” In many cases, he says patients feel well enough to resume normal, non-strenuous daily routines within two weeks of surgery, and most individuals need little to no medication to manage discomfort during this time. While he acknowledges that scars are an unavoidable aspect of surgery, he maintains that incisions are made as inconspicuously as possible, and any postoperative scarring can typically be hidden underneath most tops, bikinis, and underwear varieties.
Ultimately, when the breast reduction procedure is performed by a skilled and experienced board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Maman notes that the results can be immensely rewarding, both physically and mentally. “Patients feel much better – they no longer have shoulder pain, they’re able to wear more properly fitting dresses and bras, they’re able to exercise to the point that they weren’t able to since their early teens. And the second component is the overall improvement in the aesthetic appearance of the breasts. The breasts sit higher in a more rejuvenated, more youthful position.”
