Breast Reduction near Philadelphia, PA
Centrally located in Southampton and serving Philadelphia, Bucks, and Montgomery Counties, the Kole Plastic Surgery Center performs breast reduction for patients desiring plastic surgery.
Is Breast Reduction Surgery Right for You?
If you have significant excess volume of your breast tissue, the excessive weight can cause back, neck and shoulder problems. If there are grooves in your shoulders from your bra or if rashes occur under your breast, then a breast reduction may be for you.
Most of the time, your insurance company will cover breast reduction procedures.
The process will begin with a consultation with Dr. Edward S. Kole to discuss what you want to achieve and the most suitable treatment options. He will take a medical history and perform a physical examination. For cases of enlarged breasts, confidential case history photographs would be taken and submitted to your insurance company for preapproval.
Once approved, the surgical procedure could be performed at our licensed Southampton Ambulatory Surgical Center. However, if you prefer, the procedure can be performed as outpatient surgery in a local area hospital.
How Is Breast Reduction Performed?
Breast reduction surgery, also called reduction mammaplasty, removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin. The breast reduction procedure generally takes one and a half to two hours. The breast will be reshaped to a pleasing contour. Dr. Kole takes care to minimize visible scarring from the procedure, but some scars are unavoidable.
By having the extra weight of the breast tissue removed, you can participate more actively in sports, be less self-conscious, and most importantly alleviate your preoperative back, neck, and shoulder pain. As all breast sizes are different, and the physical patient’s frames are also different, careful consultation with an experienced surgeon such as Dr. Kole will give you the best possible results and the least chance of developing postoperative complications.
What Is the Cost of Breast Reduction in Philadelphia and Bucks County?
The cost of breast reduction depends on the extent of surgery necessary to achieve optimum results. Breast reduction surgery is commonly covered by insurance.
If you don’t have insurance, The Kole Plastic Surgery Center accepts cash, check, and credit card (MasterCard®, Visa®, American Express®, Discover®) as acceptable forms of payment.
Financing is also available through CareCredit®, United Medical Credit and Advanced Care.
