What is a Breast Reduction?
When breasts are too large, they can cause a woman pain and discomfort, as well as affect her confidence. The cosmetic surgeons at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates, Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin can resolve these issues with breast reduction surgery, which resizes and repositions the breasts. After the surgery in Oklahoma City, OK, the breasts are smaller and lifted, which can reduce the painful symptoms associated with larger breasts, such as neck and back pain. Breast reduction surgery also lifts the breasts to a higher position, which enhances a woman’s overall appearance. This surgery can help a woman both look and feel better.

"The staff are very sweet and helpful. I was very indecisive on what size I wanted for my breast augmentation and nervous about not picking the right size for myself. After speaking to Dr. Nuveen he was very honest and gave me his opinion on what he thought would best for my body but still give me a full natural look that I was wanting. Overall everything was amazing."- J.Z. / Google / Mar 15, 2022
"I’ve had such a great experience with CSA. The facility is clean, beautiful and inviting. The women at the front desk are always friendly, both over the phone and in person. I had a consultation for a breast augmentation in March. The consult was thorough! We discussed my hopes/goals, different types of implants, different methods of placement, and I got to try a bunch of implant sizes until I decided on a size I felt the best with. The nurse practitioner made sure to answer all of my questions and made me feel so reassured throughout the whole process. I was then presented with price estimates and payment/financing options. They made my decision to move forward so easy and never made me feel pressured. I am now 5 weeks post-op and could not be happier with my results! Dr. Nuveen was amazing and far exceeded my expectations! He made me feel comfortable from start to finish. He explained things clearly/concisely and made sure to address any questions I had (both pre and post op)! He truly gave me back all of the confidence I’d lost after breastfeeding and I could not be more grateful. 10/10 would recommend ❤️"- J.R. / Google / May 11, 2022
"I have been overweight my entire adult life. Once I hit my early thirties I came to the realization the only person who could make a change was me. After gastric sleeve surgery and years of dedication to the gym I was able to keep my weight stable culminating in a total loss of 77 pounds. Even though I was happy with the weight on the scale, I was unhappy with the image in the mirror. The significant weight loss had left me with extra skin on my stomach and chest. This had a detremental effect on my body image and overall mental health. Cometic Surgery Affiliates offered me the answer I was looking for. Dr Nuveen, Dr. Jung, and the staff made the entire experience wonderful. They helped me make the best decision for my situation and provided superb care and support throughout the entire process. Thank you, CSA. Confidence truly is priceless."- L.H. / Google / Feb 21, 2022
How does a breast reduction work?
It is essential to find a highly skilled surgeon who has experience with this procedure. It is important to maintain a good blood supply to the nipple-areola complex as there is a risk of discoloration and loss of sensation when blood flow is restricted. Liposuction is also performed to remove the excess fat while the loose skin will be excised and tightened to form the newly shaped breasts. This procedure is also implemented as a way to correct an issue of breast asymmetry.
The most common incision for breast reduction is what is called “the anchor” or a vertical T. With this kind of approach, the incision is made around the areola, extends vertically down to the breast crease, and then is followed by another horizontal incision along the direction of the fold. The areola will be repositioned once the breasts have been resized and recurved. A lift will also be done so that the breasts will be placed higher on the chest.
What can I expect During/After breast reduction?
Breast reduction is always performed in an accredited surgical center under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. The surgery usually takes about 2 to 4 hours. For the first several weeks, the surgeon will recommend the use of a compression bra to protect the breasts. Patients may go back to work within 7-10 days and may resume physical activities (such as exercise) between 6-8 weeks post-operative. Results following a breast reduction are usually visible immediately after the surgery. Nipple sensitivity will gradually return within the first year.
How Much does a breast reduction cost?
The average cost for a breast reduction procedure is between $9,700 to $11,500. Insurance does not normally cover cosmetic procedures. However, patients with larger breasts have tendencies to experience physical problems, which can provide medical health conditions of which insurance may cover.

Breast Reduction FAQ
How long do breast reduction results last?
Breast reduction is a long-term solution for patients who are affected with excessively large breasts. In cases where there is significant weight gain, the results may be compromised, just like any cosmetic procedure that modifies body shape. Natural aging and gravity will take their toll over time and will still affect the breasts with or without the reduction. It is important to maintain a good health routine — so that the enhancement lasts for a long time.
Will my areolas look smaller after a breast reduction?
For women with larger breasts, the areola is also excessively large. In breast reduction surgery, an areola reduction is also considered. As an incision is made surrounding the areola, the excess skin will also be trimmed so that it is proportional to the breasts’ new shape.
How much reduction will I need?
This varies depending on the doctor’s initial evaluation and the patient’s preference. Often, the reduction results in a cup or two smaller than the original breast size.
