Breast reduction actually describes a number of related procedures all of which decrease the size of the breast by reducing the amount of skin and glandular tissue.  Though breast reduction is not a weight reduction procedure, it does tend to decrease the weight of the breasts and can relieve back, neck, and shoulder pain.  It also may help improve a patient’s posture, decrease shoulder grooving from undergarment straps, and in particularly large breasts can address problems with rashes beneath the breasts.  In some patients, these procedures are covered by insurance but obviously, this would vary with the particular insurance plan.  Usually, a mammogram is required within one year of the surgery and, if the procedure is insurance based, your insurance carrier may also require other criteria such as certain height or weight or certain body mass index measurements.  Breast reduction is performed under general anesthesia.  It typically requires three to four hours of surgery and patients can usually go home the same day.  The level of discomfort is usually mild.  Patients go home with a post-surgical bra and have a follow-up appointment one week after surgery.  While there is typically a recovery period of two to three weeks after breast reduction surgery, many patients report that they feel lighter immediately after surgery.
