Breast Reduction

Reduction Mammaplasty

Breast reduction removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.

What is the cost of breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction costs can vary widely.

The average cost of breast reduction (aesthetic patients only) is $5,631, according to 2016 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

A surgeon's cost for breast reduction surgery may be based on his or her experience, the type of procedure used and the geographic location of the office.

Your surgeon may offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask.

Breast reduction costs may include:

  • Anesthesia fees
  • Hospital or surgical facility costs
  • Medical tests
  • Post-surgery garments
  • Prescriptions for medication
  • Surgeon's fee

When choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon for breast reduction, remember that the surgeon's experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final breast reduction costs.

Breast reduction and health insurance

Many health insurance plans cover breast reduction surgery. Your plastic surgeon may need to obtain authorization from your insurer for the surgery. This may require a letter and the submission of photographs. Once an authorization is obtained, you will be able to schedule your surgery.

You will be responsible for any co-pays or deductible required by your insurer. If your health plan does not cover breast reduction, you may decide to pay for the surgery yourself.
