There are a lot of different reasons why people want breast reduction surgery. This includes the following:

  • Chronic shoulder, neck, and back pain that demands pain medication
  • Restricted activity.
  • Nerve pain.
  • Skin irritation or a chronic rash under the breasts.
  • Decreased confidence as a result of large breasts.

Breast Reduction Overview

Also known as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction treatment is a procedure that is used to remove excess skin, tissue, and fat from the breasts. If your breasts are large in size, you may decide to have this treatment so that you can ease discomfort and achieve a breast size that is in proportion with the rest of your body.

Average Cost for a Breast Reduction

The average cost of breast reduction in the United States is $5,475. This is according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ statistics for 2019

However, it is imperative to note that this does not include any extra costs, such as operating room facilities or anesthesia, and so the total bill is typically more. Plus, costs can differ based on a number of factors, which we will discuss below. 

3 Factors That Will Influence Your Breast Reduction Cost

There are a number of different factors that can have an impact on the cost of breast reduction treatment. Three of the main factors are as follows:

Geographic Location

One factor that can have an impact on how much you pay is the geographic location of the clinic. Naturally, in some places costs are simply higher than others.

The Expertise of Your Surgeon

Another factor that can have an impact on the cost of the treatment you receive is the expertise of your surgeon. The qualifications and training your surgeon has made a difference, and the last thing you want to do is cut corners is when it comes to treatments like this.

Anesthesia and Other OR Costs

You also need to factor in any other costs that are associated with your treatment. This includes the cost of operating room facilities, anesthesia, and anything else that needs to be included. These costs should be discussed with you upfront so that you are aware of the total cost of treatment prior to committing to anything.
