What is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction surgery, also known as a reduction mammoplasty, is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed in the United States today.  Women who seek surgical consultation tend to have similar symptoms and complaints.  Some of these include back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, shoulder grooving from the bra strap, rashes and skin irritation, difficulty sleeping on your back, difficulty finding clothes that fit, and physical activity limitations. A breast reduction is often the best procedure to improve these symptoms and results in the most long-term improvement compared to other modalities, such as physical therapy, acupuncture, muscle relaxants, and wearing multiple bras.

What are the Benefits of Breast Reduction?

Benefits from a breast reduction vary, but the most common are:

  • Relief from back, shoulder, and neck pain
  • More proportioned size and shape
  • Relief from skin irritations and rashes
  • More restful sleep
  • Dramatic improvement in your day-to-day life
  • Renewed vitality and ability to move more easily
  • Boost in self-conscience and self-image

Who is a Candidate for Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction is an option for women who are:

  • Physically healthy
  • Non-smoker
  • Bothered by too large of breasts
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Are limited by their large breasts
  • Experience pain in their back, neck, or shoulders due to excess weight from large breasts
  • Have constant bra indentations on their shoulders
  • Have skin irritations or rashes under their breasts

How is Breast Reduction Performed?

After a detailed discussion and exam, Dr. DePerro will determine if a breast reduction is right for you.  The goal of breast reduction surgery is to improve the above-mentioned symptoms while also obtaining a more proportionate size and shape.  During your consultation, you and Dr. DePerro will come to an agreement on approximately what cup size would be ideal for your frame.  Some women prefer to remain on the larger side while others wish to be as small as reasonably possible.  Dr. DePerro will tailor your breast reduction to your specific goals and lifestyle.

How Much Does Breast Reduction Cost in Columbus, OH?

The price for a breast reduction varies according to what exactly is done in the procedure and fortunately, it is often covered by insurance. Scheduling a consultation is the best way to determine if your procedure can be submitted to your insurance for prior authorization. If your insurance doesn’t cover breast reduction then Dr. DePerro will be able to give you an exact price for your procedure at the time of your consultation. You can pay with cash, check, major credit cards, or through CareCredit® financing offered through our practice.
