About Breast Reduction Surgery
The incisions for a breast reduction depend on how much tissue needs to be removed. There is always a circular scar around the areola and a vertical scar on the lower part of your breast. Larger breasts reductions can require a scar along the fold below your breast to optimize the breast shape. We will apply our multimodal scar management protocol to keep your scars as discreet as possible.
Once pre-approved, the insurance company will require a certain amount of breast tissue to be removed based on your body surface area http://www.medcalc.com/body.html. Sometimes the amount of breast tissue removal to meet insurance company requirement will compromise your aesthetic result and ultimately leave you unhappy. Dr. Dauwe will calculate these numbers for you and discuss how to best achieve your goals.
