Will my insurance cover this procedure?

Can you perform a combination of breast reduction and lift?

Dr. Fisher’s extensive training enables him to quite easily combine a breast lift and breast reduction, which is often preferred by his patients. Since overly large breasts also have the tendency to take on a sagging appearance, Dr. Fisher is able to create an outcome that not only reduces the volume of your bust but leaves your breasts and nipples in a youthful and perky position.

When can I wear my normal brassiere?

After your surgery, you’ll need to wear a special bra provided to you by Dr. Fisher and his team for some time. Once the swelling and bruising have fully subsided and your treatment area has healed sufficiently, you’ll be able to return to your normal brassiere. How long this takes will depend on the extent of your breast reduction.

Will my nipples be impacted?

If you desire a change in the position of your nipples, Dr. Fisher will be happy to discuss this with you and include it in your customized treatment plan. Patients with nipples that point downward or are too large can benefit from an adjustment in size and position.

Will my insurance cover this procedure?

Insurance may cover breast reduction in cases where it has been deemed a medical necessity. Dr. Fisher will go over your symptoms and exam during your appointment in order to submit to insurance. However, insurance coverage may vary by your insurance plan.

Your Breast Reduction with Dr. Fisher

No two breast reduction procedures are the same, so Dr. Fisher will take care to walk you through every detail of your procedure. His goal is to ensure that you understand and are comfortable with every aspect of the procedure, so don’t hesitate to ask questions at any point during the process.

Consultation

During your preoperative consultations, you’ll decide on the specifics of your procedure, settling on incision placement as well as the final size and shape of your breasts.

Procedure

The procedure will be performed under general anesthesia, and typically takes between two and three hours to complete. Dr. Fisher will remove unnecessary tissue and reposition the nipples to create a pleasing breast shape that fits your body.

Recovery

After a brief stay in our recovery room, you’ll be able to head home on the day of your procedure. You’ll need a friend to drive for you, and Dr. Fisher will give you detailed aftercare instructions.

Getting Back to Normal After a Breast Reduction

You’ll experience some swelling, bruising, and tenderness after your procedure, all of which is completely normal. Dr. Fisher and his team will make sure you have any medication necessary to keep you comfortable, and will outfit you with a support bra to support the treatment area and help guide the recovery process.

You’ll need to rest and recover for a day or two, but will be able to be moving around within a few days. Many patients are able to resume their daily routines within one to three weeks, but strenuous activities will need to be avoided for four to six weeks. Dr. Fisher will set up follow-up appointments to ensure that you’re healing nicely.
