Looking to reduce soon!

Breast Reduction

Member Response:

Breast reduction surgery is often covered by most insurance plans. You can contact your insurance carrier to see if this is a covered benefit for you. Regarding the surgery, size is difficult to guarantee. Most patients in your size range will end in a C cup range. This would be discussed during your consultation to see if this is reasonable. A minimum of tissue needs to be left behind to ensure appropriate healing. And yes the areola is reduced with this procedure. You can find a board certified surgeon in your area on this site best of luck

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

During your consultation and physical examination the amount of fat on your abdomen will be evaluated. Your plastic surgeon can then give you a better estimate how much can be transferred. In a small breast 100cc of transferred fat can make a difference. Make sure to discuss your size goals with your surgeon , it is possible that an implant may be a better alternative.
