Traditional Breast Reduction Surgery 

“I specialise in short scar breast surgery,” Dr Jane explains. “The scar sits neatly around the areola and runs from the areola down to the breast crease.” As a result, your breasts have improved shape and position whilst still looking natural and you are left with a more satisfying overall result.

Breast reduction surgery requires approximately two-to-three hours of time to complete. General anesthesia is used to complete the procedure. Women who have a breast reduction surgery can expect an overnight stay in hospital.

For most women, two-to-three weeks off work is also necessary after the procedure, with about six weeks of limited activity and no heavy lifting. Dr. Jane will schedule follow-up appointments to check you are comfortable and healing well.

Costs of Breast Reduction Surgery

Many factors impact the cost of your surgery, so it is essential to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jane to learn the exact costs. Factors that affect the costs of your surgery include typical surgical costs, anesthesiologist/anesthesia fees, surgeon’s fees, garment fees, and medication fees.

You are encouraged to check with your health insurance provider to learn if some of the costs of the procedure are covered under your plan.
