Breast Reduction in Princeton, New Jersey

For some women, the natural size of their breasts can lead to discomfort, aches and pains, and hinderance from an active lifestyle. With breast reduction services in Princeton, NJ, Dr. Jill Hazen provides women with an option to feel comfortable in their body and take control of their life. 

What is a breast reduction?

Breast reduction procedures work by reducing the overall volume of the breasts for more physically comfortable and aesthetically desirable breasts. In addition to reducing the size, breast reduction procedures also tighten and lift the breasts to ensure that women look naturally proportional following the treatment.

Before & After

Breast reduction surgical details

A breast reduction is performed under general anesthesia or IV sedation. Dr. Hazen will create a small incision, often around the nipple, and will surgically remove fat and skin for a tighter, smaller appearance and feel.

After re-positioning the placement of the nipple and ensuring a proportionate appearance, Dr. Hazen will close the incisions with sutures. Patients can enjoy a more comfortable lifestyle without the pain and self-consciousness that can often be caused by having overly large, uncomfortable breasts.

Recovery and results

Most patients are able to return to work and resume their normal activities within about seven days after the procedure. After the procedure, your breasts will be wrapped in bandages. You will wear a surgical bra for about two weeks, after which time you may switch to a soft sports bra. You may also require drains after your surgery. If these will be needed, Dr. Hazen will discuss this with you during your consultation. She will also go over your home care instructions, which will include guidelines on how to properly sleep and what your physical limitations should be. Strenuous activities should be avoided for at least two weeks, whereas lighter exercise like walking can be resumed within a few days after swelling has dissipated. Results will begin to appear a few weeks following surgery, with final results becoming apparent after a few months.
