What is a Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction is a cosmetic surgery procedure to reduce the size of the breasts. The procedure can be performed with a number of different techniques, each designed to optimize results for the individual patient. The general idea is to remove excess breast tissue and reshape the breast into a natural form. Las Vegas, NV board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, offers breast reduction surgery for patients who have heavy, large breasts. This surgery can greatly improve their quality of life and allow them to become more mobile, wear tighter fitting clothing, and feel confident and self-assured.

Is Breast Reduction For Me?

Breast reduction surgery is performed for both medical and cosmetic reasons. The goal is to create a smaller, more pleasing shape. A woman may choose to undergo breast reduction surgery for a variety of reasons. These include chronic back and neck pain, hygiene or self-consciousness about body image. Some women also suffer from painful rashes that develop under the breasts. Many of these patients have tried unsuccessfully to reduce their discomfort with pain medications, physical therapy, and special bras. If the breasts are too large, a surgical reduction is often the only way to alleviate symptoms.

I came to Dr. Khorsandi not once but TWICE! He does amazing work and only doc in Vegas I’d ever recommend to my friends. I came to him back in 2017 for my breast augmentation and it was the best procedure, and I knew exactly what I was getting before I even went under because he does imagery at his consultations. I went from a 34A to a 34 D, Almost 4 years later and they still look AMAZING! Now I just healed from my rhino/septoplasty that I had in February of this year and I can’t thank him enough for the confidence he’s given me, the nose really can change a face. My bf had so many questions during this procedure because he was taking care of me, and doc was super quick to respond to any texts or calls, so it put us both at ease, he is super professional. So happy with my decision to come to him and trust him with my both my face and body. If you’re looking for a sign to get your nose and breast done, this is it

So I wanna start off by saying I live in Utah & made several trips to Vegas to have a consultation, pre-opp, and surgery at V.I.P & I couldn't be happier I made this decision. First of all I read so many reviews about this place before booking an appointment & got the notion Dr. Khorsandi had bad bed side manners and to just go in there with that in mind, so I went in and I was completely blown away at how far from the truth that could be. I definitely wouldn't take any negative comments seriously because all the other amazing things I read about him and his office were completely on point. I went in for a breast augmentation & showed him a picture, told him that's what I want and let him do the rest. I let him choose sizing, profile, etc. and very happy I did. When you read up a lot on implants you think you know what you're talking about until you go to a professional and they say something else other than what you think, it can be conflicting but I chose to go with my gut & allow him to make all the decisions. I was scared at the sizing he chose, it sounded like they were gonna be too big but I was totally wrong, they came out perfectly! I'm also a recovering drug addict & as soon as he read that on my chart he said he didn't want me to have to take any narcotics and comped a nerve blocker for me instead, I walked out of his office with tears in my eyes because I had never had a doctor be so understanding and kind about me being in recovery. & not only that but not wanting to risk putting me in a situation that could end in relapse. The girls in the office were so sweet & reassuring as well. I loved Patricia! She was easy to communicate with & gave me great advice, that if she didn't tell me prior to surgery I might have had a bad experience. The day of surgery I was terrified & probably overly annoyingly nervous, but all the staff at the surgical center were so understanding, they entirely calmed my nerves when it was time to go under that the last thing I remember is laughing with the nurse putting me under! Dr.Khorsandi also came by to draw on my chest before surgery and had the most kind words to say & is just a super down to earth person. I feel like he went above and beyond by just being himself & that honestly is the most amazing feeling because it reassured me he was being sincere and genuine the entire time. He definitely is blunt & to the point but he knows what he's doing!! His team reached out a few times while I was recovering & I couldn't be happier with the results & my breasts haven't even dropped yet. This experience was worth every penny. VIP plastic surgery is my new go to spot & very worth the drive! Thank you dr.khorsandi.

Your Initial Consultation

The breast reduction consultation with Dr. Khorsandi will take approximately 45 minutes, and will require a detailed history and physical exam. Dr. Khorsandi will address how the breasts have affected the quality of life for the patient, and goals for surgery will be discussed. During this exam, Dr. Khorsandi will perform the following:

  • Current cup size will be recorded.
  • The width of the breasts will be measured.
  • The skin will be examined for scars or stretch marks.
  • The size, shape and position of the nipple will be noted.
  • The breasts will be examined for any masses or irregularities.
  • The amount of tissue to be removed will be assessed.
  • Photographs will be taken to help document the process.

Surgical Approach

There are several different approaches to breast reduction surgery. While the technique used may vary, each surgery will involve both skin and tissue reduction. The pattern of skin removal and tissue reduction will be determined based on the amount and size of breast tissue to be removed. Techniques include vertical breast reduction, wise pattern rest reduction, and breast reduction using liposuction.

Vertical Pattern Reduction

Women who have a small to moderate amount of excess breast tissue may benefit from having a vertical scar breast reduction. In this type of surgery, the incision is made around the nipple and down the central part of the breast. Through this incision the breast tissue in the middle of the breast is removed and the excess skin is removed to tighten the breast envelope. This type of reduction is sometimes referred to as having a lollipop type scar because the incision goes around the nipple and down. The advantage to this type of surgery is that it eliminates the scar that goes horizontally underneath the breast. Not all patients are candidates for vertical pattern breast reduction. Patients with large to extremely large breasts will need to have a wise pattern breast reduction.

Wise Pattern Reduction

The Wise pattern is one of the oldest types of breast reductions performed. The scar is in the form of an anchor in which there is an incision made around the nipple, down the central part of the breast, and across from side to side underneath the breast. The name, Wise pattern, comes from the surgeon who developed the technique many years ago and the technique has stood the test of time. The reduction allows for the strong lifting of the breast tissue with a reduction of both the skin and excess breast mass.

Liposuction Reduction

Liposuction is a relatively newer technique for breast reduction, which uses smaller incisions, and the tumescent liposuction technique to remove the fatty parts of the breast tissue without the need for significant lifting. This technique can be used in both men and women. Patients with good skin tone and elasticity can expect contracture of the breast tissue after liposuction. This technique is reserved for only select female patients who are candidates based on slightly oversized breasts and good skin quality. In men, liposuction is often combined with glandular excision to remove hard glandular tissue characteristic of gynecomastia.

What to Expect

Breast reduction surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. The surgery usually takes about 2 to 4 hours. During the recovery, the breast may initially appear to be very constricted and either cone shaped or high. This is a normal part of the postoperative process and the breasts will settle over the course of the next 3 to 4 weeks. The scars will soften over the course of 6-8 months. Many women often comment on the immediate relief that they experience from back and neck pain following breast reduction surgery. Furthermore, patients benefit from improved self-esteem with the ability to wear normal clothing appropriate for their body type.

Expected Cost

The average cost for breast reduction surgery is $8500. Patients with larger breasts have tendencies to experience physical problems, which sometimes allows this surgery to be covered by medical insurance. In order to apply for insurance coverage, Dr. Khorsandi will write a letter to your insurance carrier requesting preauthorization. This will require your medical history, as well as details that are relevant to the surgical case. Photographs of the breasts are helpful for obtaining approval and may be included with permission. It often takes several weeks and up to several months to obtain authorization from the insurance carrier.
