What is a Breast Reduction?
While some women long for a bigger bosom, others wish they were not quite so blessed. These ladies could benefit from a breast reduction to help bring their contours into a normal range. Breast reduction reduces excess tissue, decreasing size yet leaving a very natural appearance.
Benefits of a Breast Reduction
Having overly large breasts can lead to back pain, and might even make everyday tasks difficult. Breast reduction surgery can reduce discomfort, increase your range of motion, and make it easier to perform your normal routine.
We see a good number of women who are self-conscious about their large chests. These females often feel as though others are staring or gawking at them, and may even avoid going out in public because of it. Following a breast reduction, most find that the amount of unwanted attention greatly decreases.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Breast Reduction?
You may desire a breast reduction if:
- Your large breasts are causing you back or neck pain
- You have lost a great deal of weight and find that your breasts are now disproportionate to the rest of your body
- Having a large chest makes you feel self-conscious
- Playing sports or performing other activities is hindered by your oversized bosom
- One breast is significantly larger than the other, and you would like to even them up a bit
How are Breast Reduction Procedures Performed?
A breast reduction is performed by reducing excess skin and breast tissue to make the breasts smaller. In some cases, liposuction is also recommended to contour the areas surrounding the breast. The exact technique and incisions will be explained to you when you come in for your initial consultation.
How Much Does a Breast Reduction Cost in Baltimore?
Our highly-customized breast reduction procedures are tailored to your own individual needs. In some cases, breast reduction surgery is covered by your insurance plan. In other cases, the procedure is considered cosmetic and the estimated total cost can vary from $8,500 to $10,000. We will be happy to work with your insurance company to determine whether coverage will be provided. During your consultation, we will be glad to answer all of your questions, including those pertaining to specific techniques that might affect your cost. We will also help you determine the best method of payment based on your needs and budget. Many times, we are able to offer specials that help patients maximize their cosmetic procedure dollars. On other occasions, we may recommend financing through a major credit card or low-interest financing through CareCredit® or Prosper® Health Care Lending.
