A breast reduction can be an excellent treatment for many women with large breasts. If your breasts are causing back pain or making your life more challenging, this could be the procedure for you. Breast reduction has been around for many years and remains one of the most popular treatments performed by Dr. Brenman.
Average Cost of Breast Reduction
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons stipulates that breast reductions have an average cost of just under $6,500. This figure only relates to breast reductions performed for cosmetic reasons, not as part of an essential medical procedure. Lots of costs are tied into the overall treatment, including fees for anesthesia, facilities, medical tests, post-surgery care, medication, and the surgeon’s fees. Therefore, the exact cost of your breast reduction surgery can vary depending on all of these factors. If you book a consultation with Dr. Brenman, he will help you understand the total costs of the treatment based on your specific needs.
Breast Reduction Overview
Breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty) is a surgical procedure aimed at reducing breast size. It brings the breasts into a more proportional shape for your body, so they’re not too large. This is mostly a cosmetic treatment, though breast reduction has been shown to help with back and neck pain in many women.
Dr. Brenman will perform your surgery by removing any excessive glandular breast and fatty tissue from your chest. Following this, he will reshape the breasts, so they look more natural and perky. In most cases, your nipples will need to be repositioned to look more natural.
Benefits of a Breast Reduction
You will see various cosmetic and health benefits from breast reduction surgery. Firstly, it reduces the size of your breasts, making you feel more natural and confident. This can also help you fit into clothes or find bras that actually contain your breasts. If your large breasts have caused back or neck pain, this surgery will lighten the load on those muscles. In turn, this can provide long-term relief from chronic pain and postural issues.
Breast reduction surgery is also shown to benefit people with breathing problems caused by large breasts. As the weight of your breasts pulls your spine forwards, it puts pressure on your lungs, making it hard to breathe. Again, reducing the size of your breasts will undo this problem by allowing you to stand upright and return to normal posture.

Am I a Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery?
Do you have excessively large breasts that cause complications in your life? Perhaps you struggle to live an active life due to your breasts’ extra weight weighing you down. Or, maybe you suffer from chronic back, neck or shoulder pain every single day. You may experience neither of these issues but feel very self-conscious about the size of your breasts. As such, you will be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery if any of these problems plague you. It’s suitable for any healthy woman who doesn’t feel happy with the current size and shape of her breasts.
“After losing 87 pounds I decided I would treat myself and get a tummy tuck that I have been wanting for some time. I researched and thought Dr Scot Brenman would be best. Well suffice it to say I am not thrilled with my results. Ultimately my tummy is flatter which was what I wanted but my belly button is 2 inches above the incision line which I hate! He promised lipo which til this day I’m betting he didn’t do! Also his aftercare was thee WORSE! He never followed up with me after the removal of my drains! No way will he receive another one of my hard earned dimes!” *
