Some women are forced to deal with physical pain, caused by naturally given breasts, which can overwhelm one’s frame. Breast reduction surgery (also referred to as mammoplasty) is a safe, surgical procedure. If you find that you are suffering from back pain, excessively deep bra strap marks, recurrent skin rashes, or decreased mobility due to your large breasts, breast reduction surgery may be the right route for you. A breast reduction takes a mere few hours to complete, leaving you with a sense of relief, and for some women, a newfound confidence. Dr. Racanelli aims to grant his patients with that feeling of relief, by delivering some of the best breast reduction Brooklyn has to provide.
About the procedure
Breast reduction surgery dramatically reduces the weight and size of the breasts, which helps to eliminate such issues as bad posture, neck pain, back pain, and skin chafing. During a breast reduction procedure, excess amounts of fat, skin and glandular tissue are carefully removed from the breasts, by means of a series of meticulously placed incisions, surrounding the breast. Once the desired amount of tissue has been removed from the breasts, the nipple and areola are then repositioned. It is not unusual that in some cases, liposuction is administered, in order to remove fat from around the armpit area. The amount of fat and tissue that is removed from the breasts will vary, and is determined on a patient-to-patient basis. One patient may need more or less removed than the next.
A breast reduction procedure can help to restore symmetry to uneven breasts, and may be performed in conjunction with a breast lift (also called a mastopexy). A breast lift allows for perkier more youthful looking breasts. We encourage you to visit our

Additional benefits to having breast reduction surgery:
· Helps correct breast asymmetry.
· It enhances one’s natural breast shape.
· Improves nipple position and areola size.
· Helps to eliminate or reduce self-consciousness.
· Increases comfort during high-impact activities, such as running or dancing.
What to expect during recovery
Patients will often experience some discomfort for the first several days, after surgery. This is totally normal. After your surgery, you will return home wearing a surgical grade bra. This maintains your newly reshaped breasts. It’s important to wear this bra at all times, for the first 3 to 4 weeks, with the exception of showering or bathing. Most patients feel ready to get back into their everyday routine after 2 weeks or so. It is suggested that any demanding exercise or high-impact activities may not be resumed until after the first 4 to 6 weeks.
