Is A Breast Reduction Right For Me?


Heavy breasts cause neck, shoulder and back pain. A breast reduction will resolve all of these symptoms.


Breast reduction surgery lifts the position of your nipple and tightens your breast shape. The end result is a smaller, lighter, perkier breast.


Women with large breasts commonly complain of asymmetry and uneven breast size which is why improved symmetry is a large focus of breast reductions.

Not quite sure? here’s some common questions …

Who is a good candidate for breast reduction surgery?

The best candidates for breast reduction surgery are healthy people who have large breasts (the medical term is “macromastia”), and whose breasts are causing them to experience negative symptoms such as backpain or rashes beneath the breasts.

Does a breast reduction lift the breasts too? Will they be “perkier” afterwards?

Yes, a lift is part of the reduction. Your breasts will definitely be more perky afterwards and you may not even be able to go bra-free.

Will my nipples change? Will I be able to breastfeed and/or will my nipples lose feeling?

While there is some conflicting scientific research, the bottom line is that not all patients are able to breastfeed after breast reduction. The tricky thing is that a lot of women with large breasts, breast reduction or no, have difficulty breast feeding so it is hard to know for sure what the real percentages are.

It is also important to know there is a small chance of losing sensation to the nipple–or even part or all of the nipple-areola itself–as a result of breast reduction surgery. We also reduce the size (diameter) of the areola along with the breast reduction so the nipple is in proportion to the new breast size.

Does the surgery leaves scars? If so, will they go away?

All surgery leaves scars. Most scars will fade in time, about 6-12 months, but the scars will be there in some form forever. Keep in mind that not everyone makes the same kinds of scars, this is largely genetic. Some people make pale, thin scars, while others tend to make thicker scars. Breast scars are generally minimal andwe use silicone taping and laser treatments to ensure you get the best possible scars.

A breast reduction will leave a scar around the areola, (the darker skin around the nipple), one vertically (up-and-down) under the areola, and one horizontally (side-to-side) in the fold beneath the breast. These will typically be hidden by your bra after the surgery.

Are breast reductions covered by medical insurance?

Yes, although it depends on your level of insurance cover as to whether a breast reduction cost is covered. The Medicare item number is 45523, so check with your insurance company if you are covered for this item number.
