Located in Bala Cynwyd and serving Philadelphia and South Jersey, Dr. Paul M. Glat, MD, FACS, performs breast reduction for patients desiring breast enhancement.
Dr. Glat also performs gynecomastia/male breast reduction!
Some women suffer from general discomfort, back pain, self-consciousness, and other problems as a result of oversized breasts. Breast reduction surgery allows these women to live more comfortably, enabling them to wear a wider variety of clothing and avoid the back pain often associated with large, heavy breasts.* Dr. Paul M. Glat performs breast reduction surgery at his office serving the Bala Cynwyd, Philadelphia, and South Jersey area to treat women with overly large breasts and also performs breast reduction surgery for men with gynecomastia.
The breast reduction procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Glat will make an incision under the nipple and down the breast to the inframammary fold where the breast connects to the chest. Excess tissue and skin are removed, reducing the breasts’ weight and volume, and, if necessary, the breasts are lifted into position higher on the chest. Dr. Glat may reposition the nipple to account for a new breast shape and size.*
Breast reduction patients can expect a recovery period of four to six weeks following surgery. Some soreness and swelling are normal during the first two weeks, and the breasts may be tender for up to six weeks. In light of this, they should be treated gently. Some patients experience numbness and desensitization in the breast for months and is occasionally permanent. Surgical scars will fade over time but may never completely disappear.*
