Breast reduction surgery cost does vary depending on the scope of the breast reduction and the method used. There are two types of breast reductions, one being mammoplasty where the surgeon removes excess breast tissue and skin and where the area is closed with sutures; this leads to a scar that surrounds the nipple and looks like an inverted ‘T’ as it extends down to the base of the breast. The reduction mammoplasty can also be accompanied by the repositioning of the nipple and areola.
The other option is liposuction. Dr Lanzer helped pioneer and develop this surgical procedure over the last 15 years. The advantage is that there are no long scars, rather a few small nicks. The costs vary with breast reduction depending on if the procedure is done under local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic.
• The patient’s safety;
• Addressing the individual issues, which you will have discussed with Dr Lanzer related to your decision to have this surgery;
• Achieving good perkiness of the breasts;
• Achieving better cleavage area;
• Minimise scarring;
• Durable and long-term pleasing shape.
The cost of a breast reduction procedure should not be the first concern of a patient, especially when a patient’s enlarged breasts can cause physical discomfort. Of course, the cost of your breast reduction through a liposuction procedure cannot be estimated until you had a consultation with an experienced cosmetic surgery. After an evaluation and discussing the expectations with your surgeon, can the surgeon determine how much your procedure could cost. An exact overview of your surgery cost is usually provided in your treatment plan. However, patients can still have questions about the procedure and the cost of their procedure, so always contact your surgery if you have questions remaining before having your treatment.
Female breast tumescent liposuction may produce both a significant breast reduction and a moderate but pleasing breast lift. The benefits usually relate to the recovery of breast reduction patients.
If you decide to go ahead with a treatment, we always advise patients to acquire as much information as possible. We recommend that patients request some info on their recovery especially, as following such guidelines can enhance the recovery process.
We do need to mention as a disclaimer that reconstructive healing varies from patient to patient. Post-operative care and the nature of the tumescent liposuction could affect recovery time. It could also be accompanied by benefits such as a reduction in postoperative pain, rapid postoperative recovery, rapid return to normal activities, and virtually no scarring.
Liposuction can significantly reduce the female breast size (by more than 50%). The surgery can also reduce asymmetry by ensuring the breasts are proportionate compared to the patient’s body and give the breasts a natural lift. The breast lift is caused by weight loss in the breast, which allows the natural elastic properties of the breasts to contract to a smaller size, subsequently producing an elevation of the breast. However, the breasts do not change shape after tumescent liposuction, they simply become smaller and somewhat elevated.
An increasingly large number of patients now opt for Breast Surgery Reduction procedures. Breast reduction is an extremely common procedure. We find that women of all ages have this surgery. Having trained with the top dermatologist surgeons in the USA, Dr Lanzer relies on his experience.

The cost of a breast reduction can depend on various denominators. The amount of fat removed during the breast reduction, the experience of your surgeon, and the technique used by the surgeon, could all play a role in the overall procedure cost.

To determine the cost of your procedure, it is always recommended to make an appointment at your cosmetic surgery facility. Alternatively, you can get a more accurate picture of costs by contacting your clinic by telephone or email.
We must mention that some patients find average prices online. While this can be a good idea to get more insight into the potential cost of your treatment, the actual price of your treatment can deviate considerably; this can be down to some of the factors mentioned earlier. So, the most accurate quote can only be obtained from your cosmetic surgery.
Breast reduction can be covered by insurance; because the treatment could be obtained for medical reasons. As opposed to other forms of surgery that have a cosmetic basis, in some cases, Medicare and private health insurance can contribute to the costs of breast reduction. To determine if your breast reduction could be covered by your insurer, be sure to ask this question during your initial consultation at the Dr Lanzer Clinic.
Not all of the costs are often covered, and the patient may be required to put down a portion of the cost themselves. Once again, this is something that must be discussed with an insurance agent or your cosmetic surgery before surgery procedures take place.
Patients who consult their Dermatologist surgeon for unusually large breasts or heavy breasts, which cause a serious amount of discomfort, are more likely to have their surgery covered by their insurance; this includes patients who experience chronic back pain, neck pain and shoulder pain. In short, if the size of your breasts causes considerable pain or health-related problems, the procedure may fall under your insurance policy.
