Our Procedures - Breast Reduction
Feagin & Owen are Breast Reduction Experts
Are your large breasts causing you pain in your neck, shoulders, or back? Do you have chafed skin under your breasts, and painful places where your bra straps cut into your shoulders? If this describes you, breast reduction may be able to help. Surgical breast reduction can reduce your physical discomfort due to large breasts. It will also give you smaller, perkier, more attractively shaped breasts, which can help you feel younger, more attractive, and more confident as well. A breast reduction alone will make someone appear to have lost 10-20 pounds.
Breast reduction is usually covered by insurance. To learn whether you are a good candidate for this procedure and whether it will be covered by your insurance, please call or email the Feagin & Owen Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center to schedule your consultation.
What is a Breast Reduction?
It is a surgical procedure that reduces the size and improves the shape of your breasts. During this type of breast surgery, excess breast tissue is removed, making your breasts lighter so that they do not cause pain in your neck, shoulders, and back or contribute to feelings of chronic fatigue. Then the breasts are elevated and reshaped so that they have a more youthful position and shape. The nipple/areola will be elevated and can be reshaped as part of a breast reduction procedure. Breast reduction helps you to look and feel better at the same time.
There are several different techniques for a breast reduction such as: inferior pedicle, superior-medial pedicle and free nipple graft. Drs. Feagin and Owen have extensive experience in all types of breast reductions. They will be able to evaluate you and suggest the best techniques for your individual needs.
Breast Reductions & Insurance
Because breast reduction helps alleviate physical symptoms, it is covered by most major insurance companies. Sometimes, the insurance companies have certain benchmarks you must meet in terms of documenting your symptoms or for the procedure itself in order for you to qualify for coverage. At the Feagin & Owen Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center, we can help you do what is necessary to ensure your procedure will be covered.
Breast Reductions Along with Mommy Makeovers
Many women looking for breasts reduction have enlarged breasts following pregnancy and associated weight gain. For these women, breast reduction can be combined with other procedures in a mommy makeover to target and reverse these effects of pregnancy. Commonly, breast reduction is combined with either a tummy tuck or liposuction to address several areas of concern at once. Approximately 20% of breast reductions are combined with an abdominoplasty.
