Breast Reduction

A breast reduction is a procedure performed to reduce the size and weight of the breasts, providing patients with a more balanced figure and an improved quality of life. Many women with large breasts begin to develop pain or discomfort in the shoulders and back due to the weight of the breasts. Additionally, the size of the breasts can make it difficult to participate in exercise or other activities. A breast reduction eliminates extra tissue and fat to resize the breasts and fulfill a patient's cosmetic goals. The Peer Group specializes in breast reduction surgery techniques.

 How Much Does a Breast Reduction Cost?

The exact cost of treatment will vary depending on your unique treatment goals and the specific approach we take to treatment. During your initial consultation, we will thoroughly discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the breast reduction technique that is best for you. Once we develop a customized treatment plan, we will be able to inform you of the exact cost of treatment. You can learn more about the cost of your treatment and your payment options by visiting our financing page.

What is the Breast Reduction Procedure Like?

The breast reduction procedure will vary depending on your treatment goals and the treatment plan we develop during your consultation. These treatments will begin with delivering anesthesia, ensuring you remain safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. For the surgery, incisions are made in the breasts, typically around the nipple to reduce visible scarring. Then, excess skin, fat and tissue is removed to bring the breasts to the desired size. If necessary, the nipples are resized and repositioned so they rest naturally in the center of the breasts. After these steps are complete, the incisions are sealed and the treatment is complete.

What is the Breast Reduction Recovery Like?

The recovery process for breast reduction will vary depending on the treatment method used. Most patients experience swelling, bruising and discomfort for a few weeks after their treatment. You may need to take time away from work and other activities in order to rest and heal following your surgery. We also recommend patients abstain from any exercise or heavy lifting for at least six weeks after treatment.

What Results Can I Expect from a Breast Reduction?

The results from your breast reduction surgery will be visible soon after treatment, and will last for many years to come. However, a breast reduction cannot prevent changes in the breast that might occur in the future due to weight fluctuations or pregnancy. We encourage patients to maintain healthy lifestyle habits in order to make their results last as long as possible.
