Will my medical insurance cover breast reduction surgery? Some insurance companies cover some or all the costs of breast reduction surgery if surgery is being performed to relieve back pain, skin problems, or other medical problems caused by large or heavy breasts. We are more than happy to check your coverage for you during the time of your consultation.
What does my breast reduction consultation entail? The best in class LA board certified plastic surgeon will discuss your goals with you and explain what can realistically be achieved. The plastic surgeon will take into account your unique anatomy when determining your new breast size – to give you the best possible aesthetic cosmetic result for your specific body shape. The plastic surgeon will show you more before-and-after breast reduction photos of his (more than what is included on this website) or his work. You may also wish to share with the plastic surgeon photos of what you like and do not like. Your medical and health history will also be discussed. Your breasts will be examined thoroughly to determine the most effective surgical approach. The surgeon will go over the anesthesia to be used, the procedure, what results might realistically be expected, and possible risks and complications. You may be asked to get a mammogram or other medical testing prior to surgery.
After my breast reduction am I still a patient of Breast Reduction Specialists of Los Angeles? Yes. For all breast reduction plastic surgeries our patients will have an email address, the office number, and a direct phone number for the plastic surgeon.
What methods does the plastic surgeon use to perform breast reduction surgery? There are two main incision methods used by our plastic surgeons when performing your breast reduction surgery:
- Lollipop incision: located around the areola, then extending from the bottom of the areola to the breast crease
- Anchor incision: lollipop incision with an additional incision made in the breast crease
In certain situations, liposuction around the breasts, lateral chest wall, or armpits may be added to the procedure. This will be discussed during your consultation.
What is the length of time required to perform a breast reduction? Breast Reduction Specialists of Los Angeles specializes in breast reduction surgery and performs hundreds of these surgeries each year, so the procedure is very reproducible and easy for the plastic surgeon. The approach is safe, expedient, with quick recovery time, minimal pain, and few complications. Typically, a breast reduction can be performed in under 2 hours, and sometimes in as little as 1.5 hours.

What is the expected recovery time after a breast reduction? Typically, if there are no unexpected complications, the “fast-track” recovery is quick. Patients should expect to be moving around immediately after surgery and are instructed to engage in light activities such as cooking and walking. Laying in bed all day is absolutely not permitted as it could cause a blood clot to form! There are no movement or positional restrictions so patients can sleep however they wish and put their arm over their head without any limitations for taking on and off clothes. The only rule is to not engage in any strenuous activity and not lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk for the first two weeks. After two weeks patients can begin resuming their preoperative activity routine, such as going to the gym. Typically patients take one week off from work or school, but many return sooner.
Will I have a scar from getting a breast reduction? The appearance of scars after breast reduction plastic surgery will largely be determined by the surgical technique used by the best in class LA board certified plastic surgeon during your procedure. The plastic surgeon uses a minimally invasive technique that minimizes the appearance of scars. These scars will fade over time but will never completely disappear. It is important to understand that all breast reduction surgery techniques require incision of the breasts and incisions result in scars. There are, however, techniques that our best in class LA board certified plastic surgeons can employ to keep scarring to a minimum or ensure that scars are located where they are less likely to be seen. There is simply no breast reduction technique that is “scarless”.
Is there a lot of pain after breast reduction surgery? No. This pain is easily controlled with Tylenol and non-narcotic medications.
