When to Consider Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is performed to:

  • Improve the size and contour of the breasts
  • Reduce chronic neck, back and shoulder pain
  • Reduce skin irritation and rashes that form underneath heavy breasts
  • Balance breasts that are of different sizes

Breast reduction has a high success rate and is sometimes covered by insurance. However, if you have a history of irregular mammograms, uncontrolled medical conditions or severe obesity, you may not be a good candidate for surgery. The best way to find out if surgery is right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Robbins.

Breast Reduction Consultations at Des Moines Plastic Surgery™ are NOT submitted to insurance. Dr. Robbins does not accept insurance and is 100% cosmetic. Patients wanting breast reduction surgery at Des Moines Plastic Surgery™ is considered cosmetic and is paid out of pocket.

FAQs

  • Where are the incisions made during breast reduction?

    There are several types of breast reduction. The right technique for your breasts will depend on your natural size and shape, as well as your desired results.

    The most common incision pattern is called the anchor lift. This technique is best for women who require a significant amount of tissue removal. The first incision begins around the perimeter of the areola (the pigmented area around the nipple) and extends vertically down to the breast crease. Another incision is then made in a horizontal line at the breast crease.

  • Will I need to take time off from work?

    Yes. Once you are released from our care, you will need an additional 1-2 weeks of rest and recuperation before returning to work. You will have a post surgical appointment with Dr. Robbins approximately 7 days after surgery. If you are having any problems or have questions, please contact our office during the day at 515-221-9999 or the after hours number provided to you.

  • Will my results be permanent?

    In most cases, your final results will be long lasting. However, it’s important to remember that large fluctuations in weight and natural aging over time can change the outward appearance of your breasts. The best way to ensure long-term results is to maintain a stable body weight.

  • What are the risks associated with breast reduction?

    All surgeries carry risks and Dr. Robbins will discuss these risks with you in detail before surgery. Some risks associated with breast reduction include infection, adverse reaction to anesthesia, scarring, changes in sensation or possible unsatisfactory results. Dr. Robbins will discuss with you the details of the surgery and make sure expectations are understood.

  • Will my insurance cover the cost of breast reduction?

    Convincing your insurance company to cover anything these days can be a challenge. However, your breast reduction may be covered if deemed a medical necessity. You will need to check your insurance policy to be sure. Dr. Robbins does not accept insurance, so if you feel your breast reduction could be covered by insurance you will need to consult with another doctor who does accept insurance.

    If breast reduction is covered under your policy, you will be required to supply your insurance provider with documentation of your symptoms. In general, the more documentation you can provide (e.g., from your primary care physician, physical therapist, chiropractor, etc.), the more likely you are to be approved.

It’s important to have choices! But too many choices can start to feel overwhelming. Remembering these 4 S’s can help guide your decision and discussion with your plastic surgeon:

1) Silicone vs Saline
2) Size
3) Surgical Incision
4) Selection

Real Women. Real Results.
Jenn @where_is_jenn decided to have a breast augmentation when she was in her twenties. But after 7 years, she wasn’t satisfied with the aesthetic results so she opted to have a breast revision. This time she did her research to get the fit that was just right for her. Jenn chose Natrelle INSPIRA® Cohesive “enhanced fullness” breast implants for a fuller look with more roundness on top.
...

Dessiree always felt flat chested growing up. She worried about how her breasts would look in different outfits and didn’t feel comfortable without a push-up bra.

After a lot of consideration, she found a plastic surgeon who recommended Natrelle INSPIRA® Cohesive Breast Implants for the look she wanted.

Now Dessiree considers her choice to get breast augmentation “one of the best decisions” she’s ever made.

What about you? If her before picture looks like your body shape and her after picture looks like the results you want, snap a pic and share it with during your consultation.
