While your bust is an important part of your appearance, breasts that are overly large or disproportionate can cause physical and emotional discomfort in equal measure. Physical issues (like back problems and discomfort while wearing bras) can often accompany emotional impacts in women with overly large breasts that sag or droop. Dr. Wirth offers breast reduction in Newport Beach to patients who feel as though they might benefit from a smaller, more manageable bust size.
Will health insurance pay for my breast reduction?
In some cases, a health insurance plan will cover the procedure if it is deemed to be medically necessary. These are cases in which the woman suffers from rashes, backaches, neck aches, headaches, or other problems associated with an excess of breast tissue.
What about my nipples? Will they be changed?
Your nipple location and size can be altered. Many women with overly large breasts have nipples that are pointing downward or are overlarge. These aesthetic problems will be fully resolved during your surgery.
When can I wear a new bra?
Until your breasts are fully healed, you will need to wear the surgical bra or a sports bra as directed by Dr. Wirth. Once the final shape and size is achieved, which occurs after all swelling is gone, you will be healthy, fit, and can wear any type of bra you want.
Will I choose the size of my new breasts?
Dr. Wirth will be focused upon listening to what you hope to achieve in a breast reduction. Every woman has a unique vision about how they want their new breasts to look. Dr. Wirth is happy to advise you about what size will be most comfortable for your lifestyle, and best match your frame – but it is ultimately up to you.
