Yes, breast reduction results are considered permanent. However, experiencing pregnancy or significant weight gain after the procedure can cause fat to accumulate in the breasts, making them larger and heavier. It is recommended to adopt a healthy, active lifestyle following surgery to preserve the effects of breast reduction.
Severe complications from breast reduction surgery are uncommon. However, any operation comes with potential risks, which may include:
- Abnormal reaction to anesthesia
- Hematoma or seroma
- Changes in sensation
Pricing varies depending on the extent of the treatment or surgery. You can see a list of the approximate prices of each procedure on our current fee schedule. Dr. Agullo charges a consultation fee of $100, which is applied to the cost of your treatment. Generally speaking, cosmetic plastic surgery is considered “elective” and is not covered by most insurance plans; however, many plans do cover breast reduction due to the physical ailments caused by having large breasts. The prices listed on our fee schedule represent the minimum cost of the procedures, including anesthesia and surgical facility fees, medical tests, garments, and recovery products. The cost of prescription medications, however, is not included. The exact price of each procedure can only be determined after a thorough consultation. All fees must be paid in full prior to the scheduled treatment.
During a typical breast reduction surgery, Dr. Agullo is careful to keep the nipples and areolas attached to the tissue directly underneath them. If nipple repositioning is necessary, there may be some damage to the underlying mammary glands, but most women can still breastfeed after they have recovered from this procedure.
