Breast reduction surgery allows our Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven J. White, to deliver more natural and beautiful breasts to patients suffering from excessively large breasts. Over the years, our practice has been able to consult and deliver excellent results to countless individuals desiring smaller, shapelier breasts, as well as provide relief to those who experience the discomfort that large, heavy breasts can cause. Breast reduction surgery works by intelligently removing undue breast tissue and skin, ultimately leading women to enhance their shape and aesthetic size while spending less time frustrated with painful symptoms and the inability to wear certain clothes or perform specific exercises.
Breast reduction is usually performed after breast development has stopped, since childbirth and breast-feeding may have significant and unpredictable effects on the size and shape of the breasts. Nevertheless, many women decide to undergo breast reduction surgery before having children. Overall, the best candidates for this surgery are women that demonstrate:
- Breasts that are too large in proportion to a woman’s body frame
- Back, neck and/or shoulder pain aggravated by the weight of the breasts
- Indentions (grooving) in their shoulders from tight bra straps
- Restriction of physical activity due to the size and weight of the breasts
Breast Reduction Reviews
"I qualified for Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants). Dr. White has his patients watch a thorough informative video before informing his potential clients what Augmentation they qualify for. I have debated for years whether I should get implants or not, especially after having my 2 kids. What delayed my decision was finding a doctor to perform my surgery and price. I finally got the courage and motivation to research a doctor. Over the years, I always heard that the best plastic surgeons were in California and Dallas, TX. California is too far from Louisiana and its a bit expensive, however Dallas is just a few hours away and affordable. While googling plastic surgeons in the Dallas area, I came upon Dr. White’s site. I read over his reviews, looked over the videos on his site, and all his previous clients’ photos. I decided to make a consultation appointment based on all of these factors. I really did not see any bad reviews except an individual mentioning the consultation fee, which goes towards the over price if you decide to get the surgery. Dr. White’s staff is so friendly, respectful, and personable. They care about your needs and they take the time to cover everything, what to expect, prices, pre-ops, post-ops, etc. Dr. White was the same, he made sure I was knowledgeable on the procedure I qualified for and discussed all my concerns. I had a good feeling about Dr. White, the turnaround timeframe to book my surgery to my surprise was very convenient, he had appointments that following week. I booked my surgery a few weeks later. We went over the size I desired and he explained his thoroughness when it comes to his surgery. Dr. White believes in perfection. I am in my six week of recovery and I feel great. Going through the healing process Dr. White explains what your body will go through, which I had to remind myself over and over, haha. Now, I see my breast and I absolutely love them! I would definitely recommend Dr. White for Breast Augmentation. He tends to his patient’s needs. The hospital staff is very friendly, the facility is clean, and nice. They make you feel at home. I honestly feel very blessed to find the perfect doctor for my first plastic surgeon. He put all my nervousness and concerns at ease. My breast is the perfect size to my body and what I desired. Just know that there are follow up appointments, so if you are not from the Dallas area it can be a bit much, however the appointments are spaced out (weeks apart) and I had to stay in a hotel the night of the surgery due to a follow-up appointment the next day. However, when it comes to your health that should be the number one priority!"- A.S. / Google / Jan 09, 2023
"Now my tops fit perfectly and I no longer have to wear padding to feel confident - Dr. Steven J. White is the best! I'm so happy I chose him and USA Plastic Surgery for my breast augmentation. I went to 3 other doctors for consultations before I met Dr. White and after the first 30 minutes of my consultation with Dr. White, I knew he was the right doctor for me! I work in the fashion industry and it was very important that my breast augmentation look really natural. I kept reminding him that I did not want my breast to look fake or too big for my body frame. The final results matched up perfectly with what I was hoping for. Now my tops fit perfectly and I no longer have to wear padding to feel confident. I would definitely recommend USA Plastic Surgery and Dr. Steven J. White to others. The recovery was easy and the staff was incredible to work with. Thank you to USA Plastic Surgery and Dr. Steven J. White for such a great experience!"- C. / RealSelf / Feb 26, 2023
"USA Plastic Surgery exceeded my expectations! Dr.White should be the highest ratting plastic surgeon in the United States. Im so shocked with everything he did for me. I received a breast augmentation with little to no pain. Let me re phrase that.. I had 0 PAIN, 0 bruising, 0 complications. Recovering like a champion, Because of his great skills and his post care instructions. After the surgery was done, I couldn't believe how good I felt inside and out. I finally feel like a women and its because of Dr White he made this happened. This was life changing. If you are nervous about getting your breast done don't be!! I was on my feet that day with 0 PAIN! I am shocked with how well I am recovering and how fast. I chose Dallas Texas and Dr.White to be my surgeon because of the amazing quality he provides for women wanting breast. Look at the photos on his website they are amazing. I also picked Dr. White, after doing some research, finding out he was working with the top surgeon in the world when he was in college. This made me feel a lot better about letting him give me the breast Ive always wanted. I put a lot of trust into Steve and he did not disappoint. He changed my life!! Surgery was not scary at all. Not only was the staff friendly and kind but the nurses before and after surgery were very caring and took care of me great! I can go on and on about how amazing my experience has been., But let me leave you with this.. Change is a beautiful thing, and because of Dr White I finally feel like a women! Thank you so much!"- C.F. / Google / Mar 27, 2023
"I got a breast augmentation in Dallas, TX by Dr. White. I was scared to get surgery done for the first time but Dr. White and his staff made the experience so enjoyable. I was referred by my friend who loved working with him for a breast augmentation as well and my results were perfect and so natural!"- J.C. / Google / Apr 25, 2023
"I recently had a breast augmentation by Dr. White. I have always wanted to have one, but was afraid of the recovery and the results (I have seen a lot of episodes of the show Botched). I voiced all of my concerns to Dr. White and he took the time to explain everything to me. He is very knowledgable and was very reassuring. I really appreciated the extra time and genuine concern he had for me. He is a wonderful person. I cannot say enough great things about his staff. They are all so kind, helpful, and very patient with me. They are efficient and his office runs very smooth. Dr. White is very kind and an excellent surgeon. He is a perfectionist at his craft which is something I admire about him and appreciate. I am only 5 weeks post op and I am already very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. White to anyone."- Anonymous / Vitals / May 24, 2023
During breast reduction surgery, liposuction is often a part of the process. It is important to maintain a good blood supply to the nipple areola complex as there is risk of discoloration and loss of sensation when blood flow is restricted. Our doctor is very careful to ensure that this risk is minimized as much as possible. We will remove the extra loose skin and tightened the underlying to form the newly shaped breasts. During surgery, we may use one of the following incision patterns:
- One around the areola
- One vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast crease
- One horizontally in the breast crease
What to Expect
After breast reduction surgery, patients will immediately feel lighter on top. The amount of breast tissue removed during surgery will be based on the initial evaluation and the patient’s preference. Often, the reduction results in a cup or two smaller from the original breast size. For the first several weeks, our doctor 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. Nipple sensitivity will return gradually within the first year.
There are many factors associated with a breast reduction procedure that may adjust the overall cost. Some of these factors include additional techniques used such as liposuction, a breast lift, etc. Because many patients suffer medical problems due to having heavier, large breasts, insurance typically does cover a portion of this cost. However, it is not guaranteed. Our office will work to makes sure that if coverage is valid, it is applied accordingly.
