Are you self-conscious about the size of your breasts? Do you feel like people stare at your overly large breasts instead of looking you in the face? Is it hard to find clothes that fit properly or comfortably? A breast reduction may be a solution for you. Dr. Carey Nease and the knowledgeable staff at Nease Cosmetic Surgery provide breast reduction surgery to patients in Scottsboro, Ft. Payne, Huntsville, and the nearby areas in northern Alabama.
What is a Breast Reduction?
The medical term for breast reduction is “reduction mammoplasty.” This procedure is performed to ease the discomfort of overly large breasts and bring them into proper proportion with the rest of the body.
The procedure involves removing excess skin, fat, and other tissue from the breasts. The surgery often helps women improve or regain a healthy self-image and may even improve their ability to be more active and participate in sports or other physical activities.
How Much Does a Breast Reduction Cost in North Alabama and Huntsville area?
On average, the cost of breast reduction at Nease Cosmetic Surgery is between $6,800 and $9,000. The cost of breast reduction will vary from patient to patient, depending on the complexity of the surgery and several other contributing factors. Dr. Nease will thoroughly discuss your specific case during your initial consultation and be able to give you an accurate amount at that time.
Insurance companies seldom cover the cost of purely cosmetic surgeries and procedures but may cover some of all of the cost if the surgery is done for functional reasons. It’s important to check with your insurance provider to find out which surgeries they do or do not consider eligible for coverage. In an effort to keep patient procedures as affordable for as possible, we offer complimentary consultations as well as a variety of payment options, including cash, major credit cards, and financing through CareCredit®.
What Are the Benefits of a Breast Reduction?
Many of the benefits of breast reduction are related to the easing of pain and discomfort felt by many women with overly large breasts. Most patients are very pleased with the results of their reduction. In fact, breast reduction surgery has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates out of all the cosmetic procedures performed in the U.S. Common benefits associated with breast reduction surgery include:

Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Reduction?
If the size of your breasts concerns you, causes pain or limits your activities in some way and you’re a healthy non-smoking adult, you’re likely a great candidate for breast reduction surgery.
What is Breast Reduction Recovery Like?
Your breasts will be bandaged and you’ll probably need to wear a surgical bra for adequate support for several days. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medicine for you, as you will likely experience a fair amount of pain for a few days following your breast reduction.
Your activity may be restricted for three or four weeks while the breast tissue continues to heal, but you can return to work when you’re no longer taking pain meds.
Your surgeon will give you post-op instructions specific to your case, and for best results, read them and follow them closely.
