Why Get a Breast Reduction?

If large, sagging breasts are leaving you feeling dissatisfied with your appearance or are even causing you discomfort, the team at Clevens Face and Body Specialists is excited to let you know that you don’t have to live with such physical and emotional dissatisfaction. A breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, can help you address both aesthetic issues and physical concerns with a single procedure.

This procedure can be performed for either cosmetic or medical reasons and creates ideal results by minimizing excess fat, tissue, and skin in the breasts. At Clevens Face and Body Specialists, we perform this procedure not only on women but also on men who suffer from gynecomastia or enlarged male breasts. To learn more, reach out and set up your consultation at our Merritt Island or Melbourne, FL locations today.

Preparing for Your Surgery

The consultation process at Clevens Face and Body Specialists is a highly informative one. We’ll get to know everything we can about you, your goals, and your lifestyle, so we can design a treatment plan together that takes everything about you and your life into account. This will also be your chance to ask us about any aspect of your upcoming procedure.

Your body proportions, desired outcome, and the proper amount of tissue reduction will all dictate the surgical techniques used by our board-certified plastic surgery specialists.

Prior to your procedure, your surgeon will discuss incision options with you, ensuring that they’re placed as inconspicuously as possible.

Once you and your surgeon have worked together to establish an agreed-upon treatment plan, you’ll begin scheduling your pre- and post-operative appointments, including a number of follow-up visits so that we can monitor and support you throughout your healing and recovery process, ensuring that you have everything you need.

Your Breast Reduction Procedure

Our board-certified plastic surgery specialists perform breast reduction surgery alongside an anesthesiologist in a fully accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) that exceeds the most stringent state and national accreditation standards, providing you with the highest level of safety available.

Your breast reduction surgery will take between three and four hours to complete, utilizing the techniques and surgical plan that you and your specialist developed together.

During the procedure, your surgeon will remove excess fat and tissue, before tightening the skin to reshape your breasts.

Your surgeon will take care to place incisions that are easily hidden by your clothes and natural body contours, and all incision placement will be discussed with you prior to your surgery. Once the breast reduction is complete, your surgeon will carefully close your incisions and you’ll rest in a recovery area.

Resting and Recovering As You Look Forward to Your Results

As an outpatient procedure, breast reduction surgery allows you to return home the same day as the operation. In most cases, individuals say that the back and neck discomfort caused by large breasts eases as soon as the operation is complete. To ensure a full recovery, you’ll need to wear a special compression wrap for several weeks. Our body contouring specialists recommend taking at least a long weekend to recover before returning to work. It’s important to avoid strenuous physical activities for six weeks.

If you’re concerned about any discomfort after the procedure, our team is proud to offer a local analgesic known as Exparel. Exparel minimizes post-surgery discomfort and reduces the need for any narcotic medications and nausea they cause.

FAQs About Breast Reduction

Is the procedure permanent?

Will I have visible incision lines?

There are so many breast reduction procedure types. How do I know which is for me?

Can my breast reduction be covered by insurance?

How much is a breast reduction?

Is the procedure permanent?

In the majority of cases, the removal of skin and fatty tissue from the breasts produces permanent results, though it is worth mentioning that the aging process and weight fluctuations can impact your results in the future.

Will I have visible incision lines?

Yes. Incision lines are part of the compromise patients make when going through breast reduction. Our expert surgeons always take care to make incisions as inconspicuously as possible, and the lines that remain will fade over time.

There are so many breast reduction procedure types. How do I know which is for me?

During your preoperative consultation, you and your surgeon will discuss which type of breast reduction and incision you will need. We take a patient-centric and collaborative approach to our work, so you’ll be well-informed and will work with your surgeon to choose the procedural technique that’s right for you. This will depend on a variety of factors like the size of your breasts in relation to your body and weight, and how much fat and skin will need to be removed.

Can my breast reduction be covered by insurance?

Though a breast reduction may be covered by insurance, we typically find that patients must present significant documentation of health issues first, in order to qualify. In addition, your insurance company may require that most of your natural breast tissue be removed in order to cover your claim, and many women don't want to go that route.

How much is a breast reduction?

The cost of a breast reduction surgery depends on a number of factors including the experience and training of your plastic surgeon and the location at which the procedure will be performed.

At our practice in Brevard County, Florida, our experienced board-certified plastic surgeon performs breast reduction surgery in a fully accredited outpatient surgery center for the ultimate safety and comfort of our patients. This procedure costs between $9,000 and $18,000. For more information, schedule your consultation at our Melbourne, FL, or Merritt Island offices today.
