Breast Procedures

Breast Reduction

For some women, the size of their breasts can cause self esteem and emotional wellbeing issues. This is true both for women who desire larger breasts or who feel their current breast size is too large. For women who have larger breasts there can also be a physical impact, causing limitations and pain. Reduction mammaplasty, also referred to as a breast reduction, is a surgical way of reducing the size of the breast. The procedure can help improve the proportion of your breasts with the rest of your body. Breast reduction surgery involves the removal of excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin. The goal of this operation is to diminish the physical impact on your body from large breasts such as indentations in the shoulder from your bra, neck pain, back pain and discomfort while working out or performing activities of daily living. Often your insurance company will cover the costs of this procedure. Please schedule an appointment to see if you meet the criteria for coverage.
