What is Breast Reduction?

breast reduction cost | orange county | torrance | los alamitos | newport beachBreast reduction surgery or reduction mammaplasty involves the reduction of exceptionally large breast size and volume. Just as patients with small breasts may need breast implants to augment their breast size, the patients of breast reduction have a reverse need to reduce the breast size to make it more proportionate to the rest of the body. Breast reduction surgery may be performed purely as a cosmetic procedure, but in many cases it is also performed as a corrective surgery for macromastia.

Patients in Orange County, Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos, Long Beach, CA and surrounding communities who may be suffering from painful physical symptoms, restrictions in activity and other complications arising from enlarged breasts may consider breast reduction surgery with Dr. Esmailian. According to a study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, an overwhelming number of patients who undergo this procedure express their satisfaction with the overall outcomes.

Cost Components in Breast Reduction

The cost of breast surgery procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift and breast reduction may depend on various cost components that determine the overall cost. The cost may vary from one location to another, and also from one practice to another in the same location. For instance, the cost of breast implants or breast reduction in Orange County, Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos, or Long Beach, CA would be different from the cost of a similar procedure in Virginia or Maryland. The cost in each location may be influenced by the cost of living index in a specific region.

The skills, experience, and reputation of a cosmetic surgeon for a particular procedure may determine the fee charged by the surgeon. Surgeon’s fee forms an important component of the overall cost. If the surgeon specializes in breast surgery procedures, the patients may be more inclined to receive treatment from him or her, despite the higher costs. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recommends that patients should choose the right surgeon for their needs, and consider the surgeon’s fee only as a secondary factor.

The costs of anesthesia and the costs of the operating room are also important cost components in a breast surgery procedure. The cost may vary from one practice to another depending on the kind of advanced surgical facility, technology and equipment, back-up of the support staff and other services and comforts that may be available at a particular facility. These components can make a difference to the final outcome of the procedure. Patients should also consider the costs of prescription drugs, medical tests and surgical garments that may be required following procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction.

Insurance and Financing

If the breast reduction procedure is performed out of necessity to reduce the physical discomfort, pain and restricted activity, it may be covered under the patient’s health insurance plan. Patients should check with their insurer in advance about this aspect, and the plastic surgeon’s office may provide whatever assistance may be possible in this regard. In a situation where health coverage is not available for breast reduction, the patient will still have the option to obtain third party financing. This can make it convenient to pay for the procedure in small installments within the patient’s monthly budget.
