FAQs

WHAT IS A BREAST REDUCTION?

A breast reduction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fatty tissue and skin from the breasts resulting in smaller breasts that are better-proportioned to the rest of the body. Having breasts that are too large can result in back, shoulder, and neck pain. It can also make it difficult to participate in exercise and other activities, interfering with the ability to live a healthy lifestyle. With a breast reduction, patients can enhance the proportions of the body for improved comfort, confidence, and quality of life.

HOW MUCH DOES A BREAST REDUCTION COST?

The cost of your breast reduction at Eko Plastic Surgery will vary depending on the treatment plan we develop for you. During your consultation, Dr. Eko will discuss your cosmetic goals and treatment needs in order to determine the treatment approach that best suits you. For this reason, we will not be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment until you had the chance to come in and discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Eko.

WHAT IS THE BREAST REDUCTION PROCEDURE LIKE?

A traditional breast reduction involves an anchor-shaped incision down the middle of the breast or a keyhole incision around the areola. This approach reduces breast volume while reshaping the breasts to produce a more youthful appearance. A breast reduction also improves the contour of the breasts and preserves nipple sensation in most cases. An alternative “short scar” technique, effective on women with moderately large breasts, involves making an incision around the areola and vertically down the breast. This results in less scars, creates a rounder, more natural appearance, and offers superior results in appropriate candidates. Through these incisions, excess skin and fat is removed in order to reshape and resize the breasts. Liposuction may also be added to a breast reduction procedure to facilitate fat removal. The nipples are also repositions, similar to a breast lift, during a breast reduction procedure, creating a more attractive a youthful appearance to the breasts and repositioning the nipples in the center of the breasts. Breast reduction surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you may go home after your procedure.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY LIKE AFTER A BREAST REDUCTION?

After surgery, most patients experience pain and swelling for a few days, followed by occasional aching in the breasts for about two weeks. While results of the surgery are immediate, it may take up to a year for the new breasts to settle into their new size and shape. Patients often have to take time away from work and other activities in order to ensure a smooth recovery. Exercise and other strenuous activities may have to be avoided for a month or longer after your procedure.

ARE THE RESULTS FROM A BREAST REDUCTION PERMANENT?

A breast reduction removes skin and fat to produce permanent results. However, you may still notice gradual changes in the breasts over the years due to the natural aging process. It is important to note that weight gain can also affect the size of the breasts.
