Case #30 Details
This 20 year old patient was petite, at 5 foot even, and 115 pounds, except for her breasts, which were 34 D. She came for a breast reduction on Long Island, to relieve the heavy weight which gave her back and shoulder pain. She tried lots of different bras, and had physical therapy and saw her chiropractor for many adjustments, but her breasts were just too large.
Examining this young woman it was clear that she had true breast hypertrophy (her breasts were too big for her frame). Her posture was poor, and it was hard for her to exercise, even though she loved New York's great beaches, and wanted to run more. Her breasts also were hanging low, making her look matronly. She was also self-conscious about the size of her breasts, and hoped that after a breast reduction people would make eye contact with her instead of looking first at her chest. It seemed that she dressed to cover up her figure. I recommended a breast reduction, using an "anchor shaped" incision, which would reduce and lift her breasts.
She was nervous about the breast reduction surgery, but also excited. Her surgery took just over 2 hours, and I removed nearly a pound of breast tissue from each side. This was done as an outpatient surgery at Huntington Hospital, and she came back 4 days later to have drains removed. She had only taken a few pain pills, and she looked just great. Within a week she was back to school and work.
When I saw her about a year after surgery it was clear that the breast reduction changed her dress and demeanor. This Long Island woman came in with great confidence, wearing clothes that fit her youthfulness, and her figure. She had lost a little weight, since she can now exercise comfortably. Her scars continue to fade, and her shape is excellent. Our breast reduction patients are among the happiest of all of our cosmetic surgery patients. And this young New Yorker is no exception.
