Breast Reduction

Reduction Mammaplasty

Breast reduction surgery entails the removal of skin and tissue from the breast, followed by reshaping and elevating to create a smaller, more proportionate bust size.

How much does breast reduction cost?

The average cost of breast reduction (aesthetic patients only) is $6,771, according to the latest statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This average surgeon's fee is only part of the total price – it does not include anesthesia, operating room facilities or other related expenses. Please consult with your plastic surgeon's office to determine your final fee.

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

Breast reduction costs may include:

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

Is breast reduction surgery covered by health insurance?

Breast reduction surgery is often covered by health insurance plans, but your plastic surgeon may need to get approval from your insurance company. This process may involve submitting a letter and photos. Once the authorization is granted, you can proceed with scheduling the surgery, but keep in mind that you will still be responsible for any copayments or deductibles set by your insurance. If your insurance does not cover the procedure, you will have the option to pay for it out of pocket.

Your satisfaction involves more than a fee

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