When to Consider a This Procedure

A breast reduction is a surgical, cosmetic procedure that works to reduce the size of the breast and also reshapes the breasts in order to get desired results. People consider breast reduction procedures for different reasons. Some want to reduce the size of their breasts for cosmetic purposes to have smaller, more proportionate breasts..

Other people may require a breast reduction procedure for health-related reasons including to reduce the severity of back issues due to large breast size, rashes and scarring, and shoulder and neck pain.

Breast reductions not only help to address cosmetic issues and offer support for health-related reasons, but they can also assist with making life easier as larger breasts can make it more challenging to fit into clothing, exercise, and perform daily activities.

May Be Covered by Your Insurance Provider

What to Expect

Breast Reduction Procedure

The purpose of a breast reduction surgery is to eliminate surplus breast fat, tissue, and skin, resulting in a breast size that harmonizes with your overall body proportions. Results are long-lasting, but may change over time due to things like weight gain or loss and loss of skin elasticity with age. Typically, the procedure is done over the course of about 3 hours and patients can return home the same day of surgery to begin the recovery process. Patient can expect recovery to take up to 3 weeks.
