Breast reduction is used to decrease the size of breasts that are too large or disproportionate to the individual’s body frame. In addition to reducing self-consciousness, this reconstructive procedure can also alleviate back pain, improve posture, and make everyday activities more comfortable.
Breast reduction is commonly performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. Side effects are temporary and may include discomfort, swelling, bruising, and numbness. Most patients can return to work and normal activities in one to two weeks. Your plastic surgeon can explain the risks associated with this procedure and answer your questions about scarring.
Depending on your desired surgery outcomes, a breast reduction can often be combined with a breast lift for maximum results creating a smaller, more youthful, and uplifted shape.
Our plastic surgeon might recommend a breast lift along with your reduction if you’ve experienced any changes or losses in your skin’s elasticity from:
Gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts, is a common condition, affecting thousands of American men to varying degrees. Fortunately, gynecomastia can often be treated through male breast reduction, a procedure performed to reduce excess breast tissue in men using either liposuction or direct excision methods. It is an excellent option for men who feel self-conscious about their appearance, leaving them with a chest that is flatter and firmer.
Typically, male breast reduction is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. Temporary side effects may include bruising, swelling, and numbness, and most patients are able to return to work and normal activities in as little as one week.

After 52 years, two children, and gravity being unkind I was very ready to do myself a favor with a breast reduction/lift. Dr. Rosenberg came highly recommended. After my initial consult with him, I knew why. I immediately felt comfortable with his demeanor, capability and professionalism. Both, he and his M.A. Tara always treat me warmly and considerately. This was a big decision for me, and I have never regretted it! I was so well cared for in both pre and post-op. The staff there is excellent! My overall recovery has been healthy and fast; back to activities in no time at all! Last, but not least, the office staff is top notch. Doing everything to make the visits, appointments, etc. hassle free. Simply can’t say enough positive.
