How Much Does Breast Reduction Surgery Cost in Charleston, SC?
The cost for breast reduction varies with your plastic surgeon’s training and experience, surgical technique, anesthesia, and individual patient factors. During your initial consultation, you will be given a customized quote to take with you and consider.
How Long Does It Take To Recover From a Breast Reduction?
Patients are typically ready to return to non-strenuous work, school, and everyday activities 1 to 2 weeks after breast reduction surgery. Strenuous exercise should be delayed for about 3 to 4 weeks.
What Happens During A Consultation
Because we want to create your ideal surgical results, the consultation is a critical part of the process. Your surgeon will walk you through your options and help you make choices that align with your anatomy and goals. This time will also be used to conduct a thorough medical history and address all your concerns and questions.
You will have another preoperative appointment closer to the date of your surgery. At this time, you will sign the consent forms, have photos and measurements taken, and receive detailed instructions for before and after surgery. Please adhere to these instructions closely as they are instrumental in ensuring your safety and comfort.
Breast reduction rarely leads to a permanent decrease in nipple sensitivity. Breastfeeding is often possible after the procedure.
Is a breast reduction painful?
Most patients experience mild to moderate pain for about a week after breast reduction; it is usually managed with over-the-counter or prescription pain medication.
Do breasts sag after a reduction?
Breast reduction results are long lasting; however, weight changes, hormones, and the natural aging process can affect breast size and shape. To prevent future sagging, it helps to follow a healthy lifestyle and wear supportive bras as much as possible.
Is the surgery worth it?
The improvements patients gain in quality of life—both physically and emotionally— make breast reduction worth it for the vast majority. Many wish they hadn’t waited so long to have the surgery.
