What Is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that can decrease the size and weight of the breasts and help to reshape the breasts, giving them a perkier and more youthful appearance.

Breast reduction is accomplished by removing excess breast fat, tissue and skin to achieve a breast size that is more in proportion to the patient’s body. Decreasing the size of the breasts often helps decrease the discomfort associated with carrying very large and heavy breasts.

To learn if this procedure is right for you, make an appointment and our doctor will help you decide whether this procedure may accomplish your desired outcomes.

Benefits of Breast Reduction

  • Achieve a more proportionate figure
  • Relieve back and neck pain due to very large breasts
  • Improve the fit of clothing and undergarments

Good Candidates for Breast Reduction

You may be a good candidate for breast reduction if:

  • You are at least 18 years old
  • You are in good physical health
  • You are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You are unhappy by the excessive size of your breasts
  • You experience discomfort or pain in the back or neck
  • You have skin irritation beneath the breast crease
  • You have breasts that limit your physical activity

Planning for Your Breast Reduction Consult

Come prepared to explain your expectations and potential concerns with our doctor during your consultation. You will have the opportunity to highlight your desired outcomes and the doctor will recommend a course of treatment that will most likely help you achieve those outcomes.

In order to recommend an appropriate procedure, we will first evaluate your general health status and examine and measure your breasts. We will also obtain a list of your medical conditions, drug allergies, and use of current medications, vitamins, and supplements, as well as your consumption of alcohol, tobacco or illicit drug use.

Preparing for Your Breast Reduction Surgery

Prior to surgery, you will be given a list of instructions to follow in regards to eating, drinking, smoking, medication use and physical activity. You will also have to plan for another individual to be available to drive you home after your surgery.

Recovering from Your Breast Reduction Surgery

After surgery, you will be given a list of post-operative instructions to follow for your recovery and you will schedule a follow-up appointment with your surgeon.

You may be advised to avoid various forms of physical activity for several weeks after surgery. It is normal to experience soreness and swelling following your procedure. You will continue to improve as the swelling reduces over the next several months. Any back and shoulder pain should subside as your breasts will be a more comfortable, manageable size.

Important Considerations of Your Breast Reduction Surgery

  • Changes in weight or pregnancy may affect the size of your breasts slightly over time, but the results are intended to be permanent and enjoyed for many years
  • Your ability to breastfeed following a breast reduction may not be possible; talk to your doctor if you plan to nurse a baby

Cost of Breast Reduction Surgery

The cost of breast reduction surgery is specific to each individual patient due to the uniqueness of each patient’s needs and desired outcomes. This is an elective surgery and is rarely covered by health insurance. NJ Aesthetic & Cosmetic Surgery offers several payment options including cash, check, and credit. Financing options are available via CareCredit.
