Breast reduction for women, also known as reduction mammaplasty, removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.

Procedure: Reduce, reshape, and lift larger, sagging breasts by removing excess breast tissue, fat, and skin plus reposition the nipple and areola to a more youthful position. May be covered by insurance, depending on the patient's insurance company criteria, size of patient's breast, body type, and symptoms (bra strap indentions, neck and back pain, shoulder and breast pain, limitation of physical activity, skin rash, or chafing under the breasts).

Length: 3 to 5 hours.

In/Outpatient: 23 hour observation after surgery.

Side Effects: Bruising, swelling, numbness.

Risks: Infection, bleeding, skin loss, wide scars, uneven nipples, asymmetry, need for second procedure to remove additional tissue, partial or complete loss of feeling in nipple or breast, may reduce ability to breast feed.

Recovery: *Back to work: 2-3 weeks. Strenuous activities: 3-6 weeks.

Fading of scars: Several months to a year.

Duration of Results: Permanent. Gravity, pregnancy, aging, and weight changes may cause new sagging. Reduce or eliminate breast symptoms (in-cutting of bra straps, neck and back pain, shoulder and breast pain, limitation of physical activity, skin rash or chafing under breasts).

Patient Reviews

Dr. Tittle and his staff are amazing! I had a breast reduction about 4 years ago and most recently another procedure and in both cases, from the consultation to surgery and post op visits, Dr. Tittle has been great with explaining what he’s going to do and in both cases, he put my mind at ease. He’s easy to talk to and seems to care about his patients which is a great quality to have as a doctor. Since I’ve had nothing less than positive experiences with Dr. Tittle, I have referred him to friends and will continue to refer him because he is THE BEST! Continue to do what you do Dr. Ben Tittle!

I really appreciate Dr. Tittle he was always available for any additional questions I had, He gave me the results I wanted and Im very pleased with my results. I went in skeptical because I never had surgery before but i knew i needed it. He was able to get my insurance to cover majority of the costs and his office staff was very helpful. Highly recommend!
