“I’m so tired of carrying these around…”
Breast reduction patients are some of our happiest clients due to the tremendous improvement in alleviated chronic back, neck and shoulder pain.
The Breast Reduction Procedure
The breast reduction procedure is appropriate for women with large, pendulous breasts who may feel self-conscious about their size and appearance or experience back pain, shoulder pain, skin irritation or limitation of physical activity.
Breast Reduction Techniques & Risks
Several techniques can be used for breast reduction, all of which have the goal of preserving the nipple and areola while leaving scars that can be hidden from view by regular clothing. Some of the risks associated with this operation are bleeding, infection, asymmetry, nipple or skin loss, altered nipple sensation or ability to breast-feed. Using careful technique and expertise we strive to minimize these risks.
Meet with our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons
Our Yale-educated, board certified top plastic surgeons, Deborah Pan, MD and Javier Davila, MD are always willing to listen to your cosmetic surgery needs during your cosmetic consultation. Breast reduction pricing and options are provided when you visit our New Haven office (easy on/off from I-91). Additional options, such as mommy makeovers can also be discussed during this time.
Insurance Coverage for Breast Reduction
Insurance covers a small minority of severe cases, and require a long history of rashes, back pain, and unsuccessful physical therapy before obtaining approval. We suggest a visit to your outside specialist first to get their written approval before coming to ESANA Plastic Surgery Center for a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. This way, you are better able to understand the real cost to you for breast reduction surgery. Most patients move forward without insurance approval because they want to have freedom regarding how much tissue is to be removed and to dictate their final breast size. Insurance covered surgeries must abide by their minimum amount of tissue to be removed, taking away any cup size choices as a result.
The fees provided below are estimates (or ranges) for the procedures listed as each fee depends on the operating time and surgical technique. After your cosmetic consultation, you will be given an individual quote.
Please Note: The pricing below does not include tax, implants, garments or other special equipment required. Anesthesia and surgical center fees are additional. Revision or correction of prior surgery done elsewhere may carry higher associated fees on a case by case basis.
