"Dr. Schwartz is a very skilled surgeon who always puts your wants and concerns first. Him and his team make up a very comforting environment when you visit their office. They always greet me by name and ask how I have been. They make sure all my questions are answered with as much information as they can give me. Even when I had a concern right before surgery, the doctor sat down and went over photos with me again to make sure he had the best understanding as to what I was looking for. He made it happen and my results are amazing. I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon. I highly recommend this doctor."- P. / Google / Aug 30, 2018
"Wearing a Dress After 2 Weeks Post Op - My experience was awesome. I went in for a tummy tuck and liposuction, just to boost my ongoing weight loss. But, the results I got were more than I could imagine. I haven't worn a dress in 8 years, since having my daughter. I still looked pregnant after all these years.

Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient treatment and performed with general anesthesia. The duration of the surgery is dependent upon a variety of factors, including what incision method is used, the overall technique, the degree of reduction. The nipple and areola repositioning will also be a factor. In most cases, liposuction is required for fat removal to decrease the breast size. During the consultation, all of these factors are addressed with Dr. Schwartz. The topic of scarring is also discussed as it is common to occur, although advanced methods have led to a decrease in overall scarring. Depending on the complexity of the reduction, either an anchor or a vertical incision will be used. The breast tissue is removed, and the remaining tissue and skin is tightened.
What to Expect
After surgery, patients will be observed closely in our private recovery facility and then released home to heal. A draining tube will most likely be placed near the surgical site to help control swelling and bleeding. A medical sports bra should be worn for several days that will improve blood flow to the breasts during the initial healing period. Within about a month, the breasts will settle and the post-op effects will disappear. The majority of our patients remark they feel very relieved, lighter, and more self-assured. After breast reduction surgery, you can buy the clothes you have always wanted and feel confident with your new contour. Remember, it is still important to adhere to a healthy weight so the results are not negatively impacted.
