Am I a Candidate for Breast Reduction?

The burden of large breasts can weigh you down physically and emotionally. If you struggle with the size of your breasts, you might be a good candidate for breast reduction. This surgery decreases your breast size and gives you smaller, more shapely breasts that you feel comfortable with.

How Does Breast Reduction Work?

During breast reduction surgery, Dr. Brenman will make incisions under the breasts and remove excess fat, skin, and breast tissue. Since your nipples may have become stretched or sit too low on the breast, the surgery will also reposition and resize the nipples to match your new smaller breasts.

Am I a Candidate for Breast Reduction?

If your large breasts cause you emotional or physical stress, you may make a good candidate for breast reduction. Ideal candidates have no major health issues and do not smoke. During your consultation, we will make sure you have reasonable expectations about the results of your surgery. 

What are the Benefits of Breast Reduction?

Large breasts cause physical discomfort and they can also hold you back from doing things you enjoy. Breast reduction surgery sets you free to wear what you want and enjoy more activities. Benefits of breast reduction include:

Relief From Back Pain

Many women find that breast reduction surgery eliminates back, shoulder, and neck pain that has bothered them for many years. The weight of large breasts tips the body’s center of gravity, straining your joints and muscles, but breast reduction can restore balance. 

Improved Self-Confidence

If you have large breasts, you may have struggled to find clothes that looked attractive but appropriate. After breast reduction, you can wear almost anything you want and not worry about whether it reveals too much. 

Freedom to Do What You Want

Large breasts can make almost any type of sport or exercise difficult. A breast reduction means no longer having to give up activities you love because your breasts make them uncomfortable or get in the way.

How Much Does Breast Reduction Cost?

The breast reduction cost varies by the surgeon and depends on your location. On average, breast reduction surgery costs about $6,500. This will not include expenses such as anesthesia, medications, post-surgical care, and medical tests. Schedule a consultation for a more accurate estimate of your total cost. 

What is Recovery Like From Breast Reduction?

Soreness and swelling will feel worst during the first few days. We recommend having someone to help you for the first day or two. Most people can return to work in about a week. If your job involves physical activity, you may have to wait longer. Strenuous activity and rigorous exercise should wait until four to six weeks after surgery. 

This visit was a pleasure! Dr. Brenman thoroughly explained my options and did seem rushed. He answered all my questions and made me comfortable with making my decision. Gina was friendly and helpful in facilitating scheduling etc. I feel confident in my choice.
Happy Patient
