Breast Reduction -
past and present

Breast reduction surgery has a history dating back several decades. In the past, procedures were often more invasive and came with longer recovery times and larger scars.

Women suffering from the physical and emotional burden of overly large breasts had limited options. Today, breast reduction surgery has advanced significantly. It’s more precise and less invasive, with shorter recovery times. Techniques have evolved to create smaller incisions and use advanced technology to reduce scarring. At Peak Plastic Surgery, we personalize procedures to meet the unique needs and preferences of each patient. It’s no longer just about reducing breast size; it’s about sculpting and shaping breasts to be both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.


Getting Started

The first step in getting a breast reduction procedure is a consultation with our surgeons. We use consultations to understand your cosmetic goals and review your treatment options. We’ll review pre and post surgical care information, and answer any questions you have.

From your initial consultation to your post-procedure recovery, our team at Peak Plastic Surgery is here to empower you through the entire experience.

Breast Reduction FAQ

What size breasts qualify for reduction?

Qualifying for insurance coverage for breast reduction depends on height and weight. Smaller patients may need less breast tissue removed to be deemed medically necessary, while larger patients may require more. Generally, patients with a D cup or higher may qualify based on their height and weight. 

How old do you have to be to get a breast reduction Utah?

Most patients approved for breast reduction surgery are at least 18 years old. However, in cases of extreme breast hypertrophy or macromastia, the surgery may be performed at a younger age. At Peak Plastic Surgery, we evaluate individual cases during consultations to ensure the appropriate age and conditions for breast reduction.

How many sizes can you drop with a breast reduction?

Most commonly, patients achieve a reduction to a C or D cup size. However, if desired, they can go smaller. Our primary goal is to provide relief from discomfort while considering individual preferences.

What is the recovery time for breast reduction?

Recovery time after breast augmentation varies, but typically patients are sore for 24 to 48 hours. Pain is managed with medication initially, and by day seven, most are comfortable without medication. With our team creating a personalized recovery plan just for you, most patients  can gradually return to normal activities within the first week.

Will my breasts be perky after breast reduction?

Yes, part of the breast reduction procedure involves a breast lift, bringing the nipple back above the inframammary fold. This enhances the patient’s breast projection, giving a more perky appearance. The goal is to restore the shape and size of the breasts to a more youthful and natural look.

What do nipples look like after breast reduction?

During breast reduction surgery, the size of the nipple and areola complex is usually decreased. The normal size of a female nipple is approximately 42 mm. The areola size is adjusted to be proportional to the new size of the breast.

how painful is a breast reduction?

Breast reduction surgery is not as painful as many patients might expect. Since the procedure primarily involves operating on breast tissue rather than muscle or bone, most patients experience manageable pain for the first 24 to 48 hours. Many individuals transition to ibuprofen after this initial period. The recovery time, where patients feel mostly comfortable, is typically around 72 hours.

Does insurance cover breast reduction?

Insurance can cover breast reduction surgery in certain cases. Coverage depends on factors such as medical necessity, which is often determined by the amount of breast tissue to be removed based on the patient’s height and weight. If the surgery meets the requirements set by the insurance company, they may cover the cost of the procedure. At Peak Plastic Surgery, we can assess your eligibility during a consultation and guide you through the insurance process.

What are the risks of breast reduction?

The primary risks of breast reduction surgery, like any surgery, include infection and bleeding. An infected implant may need removal, and postoperative bleeding should be addressed promptly to avoid complications like capsular contracture. Our team takes extensive precautions to minimize these risks and ensures a thorough discussion of potential complications during consultations.

“The primary goal of breast reduction surgery is to improve the overall well-being of the patient by reducing physical discomfort, enhancing self-esteem, and creating a more proportionate and comfortable breast size.”
