The goal of breast reduction surgery is to reduce and lift the breasts by removing excess tissue and repositioning the nipples and surrounding tissue to improve the overall appearance of the breasts. Patients who have nipples that sit below the breast fold or point downwards, have breasts that are asymmetric, have breasts that are heavy and dense causing neck or back pain, and/or have breasts that sag or feel droopy will benefit from a breast reduction surgery. Dr. Crofts will review different types of breast reduction techniques and give a recommendation for surgery at your consultation.
As a board certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience, Dr. Crofts has performed thousands of breast reductions. Breast reduction surgery takes a very skilled and experienced surgeon to reposition the nipples and reduce breast tissue all while preserving nerves and minimizing incisions. Dr. Crofts’ artistic eye and experience with breast reduction procedures will give you the confidence in knowing he can maximize your results and reduce and lift the breasts in the safest way possible.
Patients who feel their breasts are too large and who may be experiencing discomfort.
Occasionally breast reductions are covered by insurance. After your consultation, our staff can assist in getting a prior authorization started. Documentation of conservative treatment is required by most insurance companies. However, approval and coverage ultimately depends on your insurance.
It is recommended to wait on a breast reduction if you have plans to breastfeed.
