What does a breast reduction consist of & what are the costs? Can anyone get one?

Yes. Almost anyone can have a breast reduction. Most patients have symptoms of back, neck, and shoulder pain. Many of the procedures are covered through insurance. If not approved by insurance the cost is between $6, 000 and $7, 000.
Theoretically, yes. Most breast reductions are not done for cosmetic improvement, but rather for symptoms from the size and weight of the breasts (back and shoulder pain, rashes under the breasts.) you need to discuss your specific goals with a surgeon certified by the am. Board of plastic surgery for the best result.
Breast Reduction. Breast reduction surgery tends to be one of the most patient pleasing operations performed. During this operation, “excess” breast tissue and skin is removed. The breasts themselves are lifted on the chest wall. This operation tends to help patients with neck, back, shoulder discomfort and may help patients with posture as well. Of course, potential risks should also be considered. Best wishes.
