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.

Breast Reduction Reviews
"I had a breast reduction with Dr. Caplin a little over a year ago and I’m still so happy with the results. The whole experience and after care treatment was wonderful. I felt heard and support through everything. I was never made to feel ignorant or that I was wasting time with any questions or concerns I had. Very thorough, patient and kind through the whole experience. Forever grateful, this surgery was truly life changing in every way."- R.T. / Google / Sep 29, 2023
"I had a breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Meyer a month ago. I had done a virtual consultation previously since I was coming from another state. I met Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Meyer the morning of my surgery. Both were wonderful! They both were extremely knowledgeable and made sure that I completely understood what every detail meant. The results from my procedure are exactly what I had envisioned and I couldn’t be happier! Every nurse and staff member I encountered were friendly and ensured that I was as comfortable as possible. I would recommend them to anyone and will be going back for any future procedures."- E.C. / Google / Oct 16, 2023

"Absolutely perfect experience! I have been there for a rhinoplasty consultation that went very well with Dr. Caplin. But I wound up eventually getting a breast augmentation by Dr. John Tedesco. Everyone is extremely kind and informative, I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the procedure, the benefits you get with the pricing, the aftercare process … Overall extremely pleased! I would recommend this clinic to anyone!!"- M.W. / Google / Jan 30, 2024

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.
