According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), rhinoplasty and liposuction were among the top five surgical procedures in 2011. Another procedure that is being requested among an increasing number of women is breast reduction.
With breast reduction surgery, also known as mammoplasty, New York women can rid themselves of shoulder and back pain, rashes and other discomforts associated with large, pendulous breasts. As a leading plastic surgeon in New York City, Dr. Thomas Loeb has extensive experience in both breast reduction surgery and rhinoplasty (nose reshaping), and has successfully performed thousands of these procedures in his Manhattan surgical suite.
Women with disproportionately large breasts who suffer pain and embarrassment due to their breast size are ideal candidates for breast reduction surgery. Factors like age, genetics and previous childbirth play a role in breast size and shape. Older patients may experience the hanging weight effect caused by heavy, sagging breasts, which frequently leads to chronic back and neck pain. In younger patients, extremely large breasts may contribute to self-image problems and difficulty participating in physical activities.
In situations where it is medically indicated, health insurance will even pay for a breast reduction operation. Women who opt for a breast reduction in NYC are often relieved of emotional and physical discomforts, and can exercise more comfortably without the need for several sports bras. Individuals who undergo mammoplasty enjoy one of the highest levels of patient satisfaction because the results are physically empowering.
With today’s advances in rhinoplasty procedures, patients can expect more natural results combined with shorter recovery times. Successful nose jobs provide both men and women with more balanced facial features and a boost in self-confidence. Whether the purpose is to enhance appearance or address breathing problems, rhinoplasty remains one of the most requested surgical procedures in New York and other states.
Patients who may benefit from rhinoplasty include those who have a deviated septum, nasal bumps, or aesthetic issues they’d like corrected. Since the nose is your most prominent facial feature, most patients find that even minor nose reshaping drastically improves their overall symmetry and facial profile. Functional problems within the nose which often hinder breathing can be addressed at the same time as cosmetic rhinoplasty.
