What is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction surgery is helpful for people who have heavy breasts. Some people are not pleased with the appearance of large breasts. Large breasts can cause neck pain, back pain, and a number of other physical problems. Breast reduction surgery is also known as mammoplasty.

Most patients are women, however, men suffer from enlarged breasts as well. There is no need to maintain lactation capability with male patients.

The medical term for large breasts is macromastia. It is usually defined as breasts that weigh about three percent of the total body weight.

What are the Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery?

  • Reduced back strain
  • Reduced shoulder pain
  • More ability to exercise and stay active
  • Clothes fit better
  • Better sex life and self confidence

What to Expect During a Breast Reduction?

The traditional method for reducing breast size involves making an incision around the nipple then downward on the underside of the breast (called a lollipop incision). Extra skin, fat and tissue will be removed, the nipple will be repositioned, and then remaining skin is sutured back together. This leaves a large scar under the breast.

The horizontal scar technique does not have a vertical incision like the lollipop incision. The incision occurs on the bottom of the breast where the breast attaches to the chest.

Other methods include round block mammoplasty, where the incision is made only around the areola, leaving a scar that is disguised by the color differences of the breast and areola. Liposuction can also reduce breast size but does not reconstruct the breast.

Breast reduction surgery may be performed in an outpatient facility, but sometimes an overnight stay in the hospital is warranted. Surgeries occur while under general anesthesia and may take from two to five hours. It takes about a week to recover enough to return to work or school, however, full recovery takes weeks. Patients may experience pain at first if breasts swell during menstruation.

Breast reduction surgery cannot be performed on women who are lactating or who have recently stopped lactating. Post-operative complications occur more frequently when large volumes of breast material are removed.

Who is a Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery?

If any of the following conditions apply to you, you may be a candidate for breast reduction:

  • The weight of the breasts is causing physical pain
  • The breasts vary in size or shape
  • Aging has caused the breasts to sag or lose shape
  • You feel your breasts are too large

How Much Does Breast Reduction Cost?

Breast reduction surgery may be covered by insurance. The cost of your breast reduction will depend on your unique situation. It is important to understand that your case is unique and your treatment plan will be designed specifically for you, therefore, the cost will be determined after your needs are assessed. During the consultation, Dr. Ress will review with you all your options, so there is never a financial surprise. While insurance claims to cover this procedure, it has been our experience that they, not you, make the choice of how small your breasts will become. Since Dr. Ress refuses to make women too small chested, we offer breast reduction as a cosmetic service only. We also offer several financing options, as we want to make this experience as easy and comfortable as we can.
