Breast reduction surgery is more than just a procedure that minimizes the size of breasts – the removal of excess breast tissue can help women escape from the physical limitations, pain, and soreness that large breasts often cause. If you have put up with back problems, shoulder tension from digging bra straps, unwanted stares in public, and other consequences of oversized breasts, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Louton can help.
Dr. Louton can also perform breast reduction surgery on men who suffer from gynecomastia, or atypically large male breasts. If you are ready to eliminate the health issues associated with large breasts, please call Blair Plastic Surgery at 800-833-3888 today to get the process started.
Insurance May Help
Because a breast reduction procedure can have very positive effects on overall health, many insurance programs will cover part or all of the procedural fees. During your consultation, our staff will check with your insurance company to see if they cover breast reduction procedures, but keep in mind insurance criteria vary from plan to plan and often have multiple parts . If breast reduction is not fully covered by your insurance, we offer affordable financing options to ensure that you can choose to receive the treatment you need, outside of insurance fine print.
Elements of Breast Reduction Surgery
During your confidential first visit, Dr. Louton will review all of the steps involved in the procedure and answer your questions about breast reduction. A breast reduction is more than the removal of excess tissue and fat. The breast itself needs to be sculpted into a smaller shape, and this can only be done through incisions on the breast.
Breast Reduction Recovery
Most breast reduction patients are able to return to work in about one to two weeks. Dr. Louton will remove the sutures within 10 days of surgery. Strenuous activity should be avoided for one month.
Patients can expect fading of scars to take anywhere from several months to one year.
