Your Breast Reduction Procedure

The procedure reduces the size and weight and lifts the breasts. The nipple is moved to a higher position and the breast is shaped into a more youthful contour. Breast reduction surgery takes 3-4 hours and is performed under general anesthesia in an out-patient surgical facility. Insurance companies have protocols to follow for eligibility for insurance coverage. Patients are advised to contact their insurance carrier to receive the information pertinent to their policy.

“Have had a wonderful experience from the first appointment all the way through from the office staff to Dr. Izquierdo. I feel wonderful and love my new look!”

Breast Reduction Recovery

Patients will wear a surgical bra post operatively for several weeks. Pain is relieved with pain medication. Patients are seen 2-3 days after surgery and followed closely for several weeks to check on recovery and healing. Patients can be back to work in typically 7-10 days, but are to avoid vigorous activities for 4-6 weeks. Patients may slowly return to regular activities between the 3rd and 4th week post operatively.
