Breast reduction

About breast reduction surgery

Are your breasts causing back pain, or do you think your breasts are too large for you or have they started sagging? Breast reduction surgery might be right for you!


Dr. Friedlander has performed thousands of breast reduction surgeries. We offer the best surgeon and the safest practices!

This procedure is also known as a reduction mammoplasty. Women with unusually large or sagging breasts often choose to have this reconstructive surgery procedure. They can cause neck, back, and shoulder pain which can hinder you from participating in sporting activities and even normal daily routines. 

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, then a breast reduction may be

right for you.


The techniques of breast reduction have been significantly refined in the

last two decades to improve the consistency of results and to maximize

safety of the procedure.  Our cosmetic surgery center uses several

techniques which have been proven to be very reliable.

Types of breast reduction surgery

your options when it comes to breast reduction surgery

  •  The Peri-areolar approach, usually used in moderate cases, only one incision is used at the nipple edge, which allows removal of tissue and easy tightening. This ends up at a circle around the nipple areolar only. 


  • For larger breast reductions, we use a lollipop incision, which is a vertical incision only that allows removal and tightening of the envelope from side to side.


  • For extra skin, we use the anchor shape incision, which addresses both vertical horizontal tightening.


  • Finally, in very large breasts, the nipple is removed, then the large part of the breast is taken off, and, finally, the nipple is grafted on the new, smaller mound.

Recovery and FAQs

Can this be done as outpatient?

Yes, all of these procedures are routinely done as outpatient surgeries. 

How much does Breast reduction cost?

Breast reduction starts at $4,400.

Does it hurt?

Surprisingly, these big operations usually have minimal soreness. In fact, there is often a comment about feeling a lot better without carrying that extra weight.

Will i take antibiotics?

 Antibiotics are recommended before and after surgery. 

Does it take long to heal?

Normally, the healing is underway by 2-3 weeks post-op. Occasionally, some areas of the incision can take a long time to heal, but this is not abnormal. 

WILL I HAVE DRAINS?

Sometimes drains are used if some fluid is anticipated, but in most cases are done without the need for drains.

Will there be scarring?

Scars are partly based on what the surgeon does and partly based on your genetics of healing. Normally scars fade over the next few months after the operation.

Will i still have nipple sensation?

Most of the techniques of reduction, besides the free nipple graph, have a 90% chance or greater of preserving nipple sensation. 

Can i still breast feed?

Normally, if nipple sensation is preserved, breast feeding will be preserved too.

"Dr. Friedlander did my breast reduction in 2014 and did an amazing job!! I am so happy with results! I had other things I needed help with my breasts and he helped me again in 2018 and was so great again. His staff is real and kind and considerate. It’s not fancy but real. Dr. Friedlander genuinely cares about helping his patients and I’m so grateful he was able to help me!!"
