Breast Reduction

At a glance:

- Breast Reduction patients are some of the happiest and most satisfied patients in plastic surgery. Reductions can be either a cosmetic procedure, or considered medically necessary and are covered by insurance.

- Insurance coverage: Each insurance company has its own set of criteria for coverage, but it is based off of federal guidelines that include: volume to be removed, how much it interferes with daily activities, and ruling out other causes of neck and back pain.

- Cosmetic reductions do not have this criteria. Instead this is a personal discussion between patient and surgeon about reducing size and forming a more appealing shape with the excess breast tissue.

- Downtime: 7-10 days, can usually return to light work within a few days. Full activities around 1 month.
