The most popular way to reduce the size of your breasts is to undergo a plastic breast reduction surgery, also known as Mammoplasty.

What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

This is a plastic surgery in which a large part of the breasts is removed to make them more proportional to the rest of the body. This is done under general anesthetic and usually takes around 2 hours if no complications occur.

Usually, the extent of the reduction is about 1-3 cup sizes. This depends on how big the breasts are to begin with and how small they should be to conform to your body type.

How much does it cost?

Plastic surgery is an expensive business. Surgery is likely to cost more than $4,500 and depends on the expertise and quality of your surgeon. This isn’t something you want to try to save on as this is an invasive surgery which will affect how your body will look for the rest of your life.

Is it Covered by Insurance

Generally, health insurance doesn’t cover cosmetic surgeries. However, if the size of your breasts is causing you back pain or another documented health issue, you may be covered. This depends on the sort of insurance policy that you have and other factors. It is something that you need to check and fight for.

Are There risks?

Yes there are. The risks generally involve scarring, loss on sensation in the breasts and nipples, lack of symmetry between the two breasts, infection and more.

There is also the psychological issue to consider. Since this reduction is sudden, you may feel that you don’t know your body anymore. Some women tend to grieve over their lost breasts. It’s important to enlist the support of your family and friends so that they help you go through this procedure. And yes, it will take time to get used to the new you.

Am I a likely Candidate for surgery?

If you fall under one of the following categories, you’re a good candidate for surgery:

  • You have one breast which is noticeable larger than the other
  • Your breasts aren’t proportionate with the rest of your body
  • You have rashes or suffer from skin irritation under your breast
  • You cannot perform day to day physical activity or find it hard to do so due to the size of your breasts
  • Your breast sag at an early age due to their size

Be advised that surgery isn’t recommended if your breasts have not stopped growing yet. Childbirth and breastfeeding can alter the shape and size of your breasts. It is best to wait with surgery until after that period in your life.
