Considering Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction surgery helps reduce large breasts. Although some women wish they were well-endowed, large breasts can cause backaches, poor posture, and other problems. Extra large breasts may also make a woman look out of proportion; breast reduction surgery can correct this so that breasts are better proportioned to a woman’s current figure.

Breast Reduction for Women–and Men

It’s not just women who benefit from breast reduction. Male chest liposuction or gynecomastia removal reduces excess fat tissue on a man’s chest to produce a flatter, more masculine appearance.

According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, up to 50% of men in the United States may have enlarged breast tissue, or gynecomastia. This condition occurs at any stage of life and may be caused by genetics, medical conditions, medications, or weight gain. In some cases, the cause isn’t known. But gynecomastia is more common than many people imagine.

Male chest liposuction offers a less invasive alternative to reducing breast size in men. Dr. Bruggeman can discuss with you the alternatives for reduction, including general or local anesthetics, liposuction, or other breast reduction procedures that may be right for you.

Breast Reduction Price

Breast reduction price varies according to the technique, procedure, and type of anesthetic, and other factors, so an appointment with Dr. Bruggeman and his team is essential to evaluate your needs, discuss alternatives, and agree upon a course of treatment.

Breast reduction surgery may be covered by insurance,  depending on whether or not your insurance company deems it medically necessary. Please make an appointment first with Dr. Bruggeman to discuss your needs. His staff will help you understand breast reduction prices and work with you on payment options.
