You may be a candidate for a breast reduction surgery if you have large, heavy breasts that cause of breathing difficulties, back, shoulder and neck pain, poor posture, bra-strap indentations, and chafing under the breasts. This procedure may also help if you have excessive breast size, which can sometimes lead to a lack of self-confidence. If large breasts interfere with normal daily activities or with exercise, a breast reduction may be the answer for you.
The intended result of a breast reduction surgery is a more attractive contour, a smaller breast size, and an improved self-image. Freedom from heath problems associated with excessively large breasts will be accomplished through this procedure.
The price of breast reduction at our San Diego plastic surgery office ranges from $9,500–$11,500. Be sure to check into cosmetic surgery financing for additional payment options.
Breast reduction surgery is done under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis or in the hospital. The incisions are usually made around the pigmented area (the nipple-areolar complex) and extend vertically below the nipple and along the fold under the breast. The nipple-areolar complex is moved upward to the desired location and excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are removed.
