If you have uncomfortably large breasts that are causing physical or mental distress, you may benefit from a breast reduction. This procedure reduces the size of the breasts and lifts them into a lighter, perkier position.
Breast reduction has one of the highest satisfaction rates among patients, because it can help to dramatically improve your quality of life.
If you are interested in a breast reduction, call Dr. Ben Brown today at 850-500-7527 to schedule your consultation. Our facility in Pensacola welcomes patients from across Florida, nearby Mobile, Alabama, and throughout the nation.
Benefits of Breast Reduction
Breast reduction has many benefits, including:
- Reducing chronic pain from carrying around heavy breasts
- Reducing irritation and rashes under the breasts
- Finding clothes that fit well more easily
- Avoiding unwanted attention out in public
Large, heavy breasts cause a number of issues, including chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain. A breast reduction can help you to feel lighter and move more easily. Many women with large breasts find it difficult to exercise because of their breasts, and after breast reduction are able to start a regular exercise routine that helps them feel healthier and more energetic.
In addition, large breasts often cause issues of self-consciousness when out in public. You may attract unwanted stares or attention from other people. A breast reduction can help you to feel more comfortable in public situations, and help you to feel more proportionate overall.
Breast Reduction Candidates
If your breasts are large, heavy, and pendulous, you may be a good candidate for a breast reduction. Most breast reduction patients experience physical issues such as pain and fatigue, but this is not necessary to be a candidate for a reduction. If you think your breasts are too big and want them reduced, you may be able to have breast reduction surgery.
In addition to having overly large breasts, candidates for a breast reduction should be in good overall health and be non-smokers. Smoking greatly increases the risk of complications during and after surgery, so if you smoke, you will need to be able to quit.
Cost of a Breast Reduction
The cost of your breast reduction may vary. The estimated price involves our board-certified plastic surgeons’ fees as well as other associated expenses, including anesthesia, the surgical facility, and follow-up appointments. Our cost estimator for asleep procedures for breast reduction is $9,500. Dr. Brown will give you a detailed quote during your consultation, where you’ll discuss your goals and the best way to reach your desired breast size.
In many circumstances, your health insurance provider may cover the cost of a breast reduction if you have a documented history of painful symptoms associated with overly large breasts. We will be happy to check with your insurance provider to see if your plan will cover all or part of a breast reduction procedure. Some patients must see multiple medical professionals to document their pain and other symptoms are caused by their breasts and not another medical condition.
If your insurance does not cover it, we also offer plastic surgery financing plans. These plans have flexible payment schedules and low to no interest rates in order to accommodate almost any budget. Please don’t hesitate to ask us about a financing plan during your consultation.
