Breast Reduction Surgery is a surgical procedure that removes breast tissue and breast shape to make breasts smaller. It is an elective procedure, considered safe and effective by medical professionals The surgery is often requested by women who have breast feelings of shame, low self-esteem, or who feel that their breasts are too large to comfortably fit into a clothing size they desire. The surgery is usually done through a breast lift and/or breast reduction. Breast reduction is also referred to as a Breast Lift, Breast Reduction or Breast Augmentation. This type of surgery will not reduce the size of your actual breasts, but it may reshape them in order to make them smaller or rounder than before. In the case of breast reduction, the surgery is usually performed on both breasts in one surgery.


Breast reduction is performed by Plastic Surgeons and cosmetic surgeons. A breast reduction (or breast lift) is a surgery that reduces the size of the breasts. While some women are comfortable with their current size, many feel they’d feel more feminine if their breasts were smaller. So, they have breast reduction done and feel more confident after the surgery.

Breast Reduction Surgery can be performed with or without breast implants. If you are considering this option, it is extremely important that you consult with your surgeon in an effort to minimize any negative outcomes associated with having implants placed in addition to your breast reduction procedure.

What are the Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery?

The goal of breast reduction surgery is to reduce the size and weight of your breasts. The surgery can also correct the position of your nipples on your breast’s that may have been displaced due to the excess weight. This will have a positive effect on your physical appearance, as well as the pain and discomfort that accompany large breasts. Studies show that breast reduction surgery can help relieve physical discomfort, such as back pain and strain, and improve confidence and self-esteem. Additionally, you may experience more comfort when exercising, lessening the risk of physical injury

Who Should Get The Surgery?

Anyone who is uncomfortable or self-conscious about their large or overly pendulous breasts, those who experience back pain, breathing problems, shoulder aches and neck pains, as well as those with a condition called “mastitis”.  If you have larger than normal breasts and feel that they cause you physical discomfort because of their weight, your skin is stretched too tight, or your breasts are in the way of other body parts. You may feel self-conscious about your appearance if breast size is a concern. You also may have a medical problem such as rashes caused by chafing or severe back pain caused by large breasts. Keep in mind that the surgery is not recommended if you have had breast cancer or are pregnant.

How Much is Breast Reduction Surgery?

The cost varies according to the size or weight of your breasts, the type of operation requested (whether you want a breast lift or reduction only, or a combination of both), its complexity, the surgeon’s level of expertise, post-operative care, as well as geographic location.

When choosing a qualified surgeon, it is important to choose someone with significant experience performing the procedure. A doctor who is board certified means that the surgeon has passed written and oral examinations in plastic surgery and has attained rigorous training in those procedures shown on their specialty certification list.

It is highly recommended to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to get proper measurements, discuss your goals, obtain pricing and find out if you’re eligible for surgery coverage well before your procedure date.
