Breast reduction is among the most consistently beneficial and satisfactory plastic surgery procedures. It offers improved comfort, relief of back and shoulder pain, and often improved mobility. It also offers the cosmetic benefit of a more youthful shape and lifted appearance. The recovery from this outpatient surgery is fairly easy. Most patients are back at work (in a non-manual vocation) in 1 to 2 weeks or less. The standard incisions require an "anchor type" configuration, but sometimes for smaller reductions, the incisions can assume an inverted "T" or lollipop configuration. Many breast reductions are covered on insurance, but this varies by policy, and policies vary as to requirements for coverage. Our office will assist you in navigating these details and will help you with obtaining in-network coverage.
