About Large Breasts
From size AA breasts, which barely have any tissue, to giant breasts that interfere with exercise and cause physical symptoms, human breasts come in all forms and shapes.
Extremely large breasts can:
- Interfere with exercise, especially those forms of exercise that include bouncing or running
- Create hygiene problems, with excess sweating or rashes under the breasts
- Lead to neck pain, upper back pain
- Create embarrassment because of the sheer size of the breasts
- Highlight differences in size between one breast or another ( one side may be a C cup while the other side is an F cup)
- Create difficulty finding bras or clothing
How We Help
Here’s how can help your large breasts.
Dr. Furnas and Dr. Canales have performed thousands of breast reductions in their careers. Almost immediately afterwards, patients can feel the difference in their posture and their symptoms. In the vast majority of cases nipple sensation is preserved. Patients find it much more convenient to shop for clothes, go running play soccer, or plain just go without a bra in the eveninng.
How much does breast reduction surgery cost?
Your cost for breast reduction surgery can be reviewed with Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas in your consultation. Typically breast reduction surgery costs between $10,000 and $14,000. This price includes facility fees, anesthesia, and more. When they have met with you and created your treatment plan, it is easier to calculate exact costs. Reduction surgery usually leads to a dramatic improvement in all aspects of life, which is why our staff will help you find low-interest financing to make your treatment easier to afford.
Will my nipples be moved?
Usually, the nipples and areola will be moved up to a central position during breast reduction surgery. If a significant amount of tissue and skin needs to be removed, your nipple-areola may be cut out and moved. Our plastic surgeons will select an incision technique so the nipple and areola are easy to move higher. It’s also possible to perform an areolatome to reduce the size of the areolas. Your options will be explained in your consultation before our plastic surgeons help you choose the best plan to meet your goals.
Can I breastfeed after a breast reduction?
Reduction surgery can affect breastfeeding. Although some women can still breastfeed after a surgical reduction, other women cannot. It’s difficult to know whether your breast reduction will interfere with breastfeeding. This is why Dr. Canales and Dr. Furnas suggest that patients be done with breastfeeding before considering breast reduction surgery.
Can my breasts regrow after surgery?
Following reduction surgery, your breasts may get smaller or bigger with dramatic weight changes. This is why it is better to be at a healthy weight prior to your surgery that you can easily maintain. In your consultation, we will discuss the best ways to prepare for your reduction and what you can do after to help make sure your results last.
