Are you interested in undergoing a breast reduction procedure?
Perhaps you’ve been bothered by chronic neck and back pain, or maybe you constantly have to deal with skin infections under and around your breasts. Whatever your reason for wanting a breast reduction, you probably have one significant question that’s weighing at the back of your mind:
The Cost of a Breast Reduction in 2019
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average surgical fee for a breast reduction is $5,482. This average is from 2017, as 2018 statistics have not yet been compiled. However, patients can expect todays cost to be similar to the 2017 fee.
This cost is just for the procedure itself and does not include the cost of the surgery center, medications, anesthesia, and other related items.
The cost of a breast reduction varies across the country, so depending on where you’re located, your breast reduction surgery may be more or less expensive, or possibly covered by your medical insurance.
Breast Reduction Consultations Available
Are You a Candidate for a Breast Reduction?
Now that you know the cost of a breast reduction in 2019, you might be asking yourself: “Am I a good candidate?” While you’ll need to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon, here’s a good indicator that you’re a candidate for a breast reduction:
- You feel like your breasts are too large.
- You experience chronic back, shoulder, and neck pain as a result of your breasts.
- You are not as physically active as you’d like to be due to your breasts.
- You frequently experience chronic rashes and infections underneath your breasts.
- You are a physically healthy nonsmoker with realistic expectations for your procedure.

Thank you Dr. Pittman.
