Breast Reduction


reast reduction is commonly sought by women with large breasts who suffer from back, neck, and shoulder pain related to the excess weight they carry on their chest. For these patients, physical activity may be challenging, while finding well-fitted bras and clothing is nearly impossible. They may also be frustrated by the appearance of their breasts, describing them as “deflated” or “saggy.”


At bodybyZ, we provide a breast reduction that reduces the overall weight of the breasts, but also restores the shape and lifts the breasts. The result is a functional improvement in symptoms, as well as an aesthetically beautiful, natural-appearing result. Many women are able to have the cost of the procedure covered by their health insurance. 

Is breast reduction right for me?

When considering breast surgery, it is essential that you be comfortable with and confident in your surgeon and their team. At your initial consultation, we listen closely to your concerns to understand your symptoms and aesthetic goals. We will provide clear and realistic expectations so you can rest assured that you will be satisfied with your results. The procedure can be safely performed on women of all ages, and it typically does not interfere with a woman's ability to breast feed.


At bodybyZ, safety is our highest priority. Dr. Zienowicz and Dr. Brower will work with your primary care doctor and other physicans to provide a customized treatment plan ideal for your unique medical history. 


About the Procedure

Dr. Zienowicz and Dr. Brower perform breast reduction surgery in our state-of-the-art private operating room under general anesthesia. We only work with the finest anesthesia providers to ensure you have the safest, most comfortable experience possible. The surgical incisions are made on the lower part of the breast to keep them well-hidden in all clothing and bathing suits. Incisions are made around the nipple, down toward the chest, and in the fold underneath the breast. The most advanced skin closure techniques are used to ensure the finest, most inconspicuous scar possible, is achieved. The operation takes several hours, but timing may vary depending on complexity. Patients typically go home the same day. 



Patients typically recover comfortably at home following the procedure. Rigorous physical activity is limited for 6 weeks, but most patients can return to work in 1-2 weeks. Dr. Brower and the bodybyZ team will follow you closely after surgery to be sure you understand all limitations and enjoy the quickest recovery possible to regular activities.
