Breast reduction surgery is a customized surgical procedure to reduce the quantity of natural breast tissue by surgically removing the excess, reshaping the remaining tissue, and creating a smaller, natural-looking breast, along with surgically repositioning or reshaping nipple structure.
How long is the recovery from breast reduction surgery?
You need to plan to take three to five days off work to recover sufficiently to return to work. Ensure you arrange for someone to stay with you for the first day or two to assist you. Engage in gentle walks, and do not lift anything over five pounds until Dr. Kim has given you the okay to do so.
Most patients recover more quickly than expected and are thrilled to now be able to wear standard clothing sizes, engage in more physical activities comfortably, and be free from the heavy weight of an excess of breast tissue.
How much does breast reduction cost?
Every breast reduction surgery is unique and will be tailored according to the individual patient’s needs and aesthetic goals. Surgical fees can vary based on the custom surgical plan, with costs ranging from $11,000 to $13,000. Surgical fees include the total cost of the surgery (anesthesia, facility, surgeon’s fee, and post-op visits).
