Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery
If overly large breasts are keeping you from enjoying the activities you love, making you feel self-conscious, or limiting your clothing options, breast reduction surgery from our skilled plastic surgeons, Dr. Jerome H. Liu and Dr. Tom S. Liu, may be right for you. During your initial consultation, they can develop a customized treatment plan that addresses your unique anatomic needs and cosmetic goals, as well as potentially help you enjoy life more fully. In addition to reducing the size of your breasts, breast reduction surgery benefits typically include:
- Improved breast shape
- Reduced back, shoulder, and neck pain and skin irritation
- Enhanced comfort during exercise and other activities
- Increased self-esteem
- Improved fit of clothing
If you’re considering a breast reduction, it’s important to note that depending on a number of factors the procedure may be covered or partially covered by your health insurance policy. If our physicians determine you may be eligible, they will detail the steps necessary for obtaining approval from your carrier, including the requirements set by the insurance company determining the amount of breast tissue to be removed. Some patients choose to go outside their insurance because they want to help determine final breast size. Breast reduction surgery also requires several incisions, and while these should heal well they will never completely disappear. Though most women are delighted with their results and don’t mind the scars, this is something you should discuss with our plastics surgeons to better understand and be prepared for the outcome. We believe well-informed patients are the most satisfied, and we look forward to discussing any concerns and answering all questions during the initial consultation.
