While the bust is an important source of confidence for women, overly large or misshapen breasts can negatively impact a patient’s physical and mental health. Physical health problems, such as back issues and pain while wearing bras, usually manifest concurrently with the emotional impacts that women with larger breasts tend to experience. Dr. Wirth’s office provides breast reductions in Newport Beach for patients who would like to attenuate their bust to a smaller size for more manageability and aesthetic appeal.
Is breast reduction covered by insurance?
If the procedure is considered cosmetic, it will not be covered by insurance. Patients will have to provide exhaustive evidence to their insurance provider in order to prove the need for a reconstructive breast reduction procedure.
Is it possible to incorporate a lift with a breast reduction?
Yes. Patients who would like to lift their breasts to a perkier position can do so while simultaneously having excess tissue removed.
Are there any risks associated with breast reduction surgery?
As with any surgical procedure, breast reduction surgery comes with risks. These include everything from tape allergies to blood clots.
Is breast reduction surgery painful?
The surgery is performed under general anesthesia, ensuring that patients are numb throughout the treatment. However, there is some pain and discomfort throughout the recovery process.
Can I wear a bra after breast reduction surgery?
Patients will have to wear a compression bra before returning to a wire bra. They should wait 6 weeks before switching back.
Do breast reductions fix asymmetry?
Yes. With a reduction procedure, any asymmetry in the breasts can be addressed, as a larger breast can be reduced in size or reshaped to match the other one.
Are there any potential complications?
Yes. Infections and loss of sensation in the nipples are both potential complications with breast reduction surgery.
