For most women with overly large breasts, there is a great deal of extra stress placed on the back, shoulders and neck, resulting in discomfort and sometimes even intense pain. Many factors such as pregnancy, weight fluctuation and gravity can cause skin and breast tissue to stretch.
Breast reduction surgery, often combined with a breast lift, provides more youthful, uplifted breasts that are in better proportion to the patient’s body. The vast majority of our patients at Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey, report that their discomfort is greatly eliminated by breast reduction. Women of all ages, from teenagers on, have benefited from breast reduction surgery with improved comfort, more choices with clothing, and greatly improved self-esteem. Sometimes this procedure is covered by health insurance. Our staff will gladly assist you in determining your plan benefits.

Common Breast Reduction Questions
What is the recovery time after breast reduction?
at Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey
Recovery time after breast reduction surgery varies for each patient, depending on factors such as age, overall health and the depth of the surgery. For most breast reduction patients, you will be able to move around with only mild discomfort within the first few days. A significant portion of the swelling and bruising will decrease quickly over 1-2 weeks. It takes several months of healing to reveal the final results, as swelling will continue to decrease over time.
Most patients feel comfortable returning to work within 1-2 weeks. Light exercise and more moderate workouts can be considered after 3-4 weeks. Avoid raising your arms above your head and heavy lifting. Patients should refrain from arduous workouts for at least a full month after the breast reduction surgery. Always consult with your physician before exercising, as times vary on a case by case basis.
