What Is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Many women struggle with breasts that are too big for their frame. This is called macromastia.

The result of overly large breasts is often pain in the back, shoulders, and neck, as well as other side effects such as skin rashes and emotional struggles. Reducing the breast size can alleviate these challenges and help women live more comfortable, confident lives.

As opposed to breast lifts and breast augmentation, both of which aim to lift and/or increase the size of the breasts, breast reduction surgery aims to solve the problems associated with large breasts by reducing the patient’s cup size, according to their needs. During the procedure, excess skin, glandular tissue, and breast fat is removed, but the natural breast shape is retained.

Patient Testimonials

If I could give her 6/5 stars I would!! Dr. Steinberg has done my Botox/Dysport multiple times. She is very thorough and does a fabulous job. My budget for botox is not large, but I like to get multiple areas done (forehead, between the brows, eye brow lift, crows feet, masseters). She always takes this into consideration and makes a little go a long way. She’s even taken care of my RBF lol!
I have always been 100% satisfied with my results and personally know many people that would say the same.

Dr. Steinberg is a meticulous surgeon with amazing bedside manner. I couldn’t be happier with my results. I was quite nervous prior to my surgery and she made me feel comfortable and at ease. Her humor and confidence coupled with her technical skill make her my number one recommendation for all of my family and friends. As a bonus, her office is beautiful and staff is friendly and helpful.

I highly recommend Dr. Steinberg! I had a breast reduction and tummy tuck 360 in March and I am so happy with my results! Dr. Steinberg and the staff went above and beyond my expectations. I consulted with other physicians before I went to P.S. for my surgery but after one visit there, I knew that I wanted her as my surgeon. She has a great bedside manner and calmed my fears before the surgery and she and the nurses have promptly answered any question I have had.

Dr. Steinberg performed injections for my facial alopecia. Her tactfulness, compassion, and empathy during the injection process not only made me feel like she truly cared for the way I was feeling, but that I was in highly skilled and professional hands. The way she deals with patients is undoubtedly fantastic, and her injections yielded successful results when numerous other doctors couldn’t find success in the same area. Thank you so much, Dr. Steinberg!

Breast reduction requires major surgery. As such, the recovery process will inevitably involve some pain, discomfort, swelling, and bruising.
