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
"Where do I even begin! I had a breast augmentation in Dallas, TX with Dr. White earlier this month. From the very beginning, Dr. White and his staff made me feel very comfortable. They were able to answer my list of questions in regards to breast implants/the look I was wanting to achieve, and also explained the entire procedure process in depth to me (which was my main concern as I had never had a surgery to this extent). The pre-operative and post-operative care they provided FAR exceeded my expectations. Dr. White wants to make sure you receive exactly what you are looking for and he did just that! I am so happy with my results and would recommend Dr. White every single time. He is true master!"- A.B. / Google / Jun 01, 2023
"I recently underwent a breast augmentation procedure at USA Plastic Surgery in Dallas Texas, and I must say that my experience far exceeded my expectations. From start to finish, the entire journey was seamless, and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. Here's why I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. White at USA Plastic Surgery for anyone considering breast augmentation: Dr. White is an exceptional plastic surgeon. From the initial consultation to the post-surgery follow-ups, Dr. White displayed remarkable expertise and a genuine care for my well-being. They took the time to listen to my concerns, understand my desired outcome, and provided me with detailed explanations of the procedure. The entire team at USA Plastic Surgery was welcoming, friendly, and professional. They made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process, and their knowledge and attentiveness to my needs were remarkable. One aspect that truly impressed me was the personalized approach they took throughout the entire journey. I was initially disappointed when Dr. White had to cancel my scheduled breast augmentation surgery due to high blood pressure. However, as time passed, I realized how fortunate I was to have a surgeon who prioritizes patient safety and well-being above all else. The fact that he took my high blood pressure seriously and made the responsible decision to reschedule my surgery demonstrated his commitment to providing the best possible care. It was evident that he genuinely cared about my health and wanted to ensure that I was in the optimal condition for the procedure. Although it meant a delay in achieving my desired results, I couldn't help but feel grateful that I had a surgeon who cared enough to prioritize my overall health and safety. It further solidified my trust in him and reaffirmed my confidence in USA Plastic Surgery as a top-notch institution that places patient well-being at the forefront of their practice. Lastly, when it came to deciding the appropriate size for my breast augmentation, I had to place my complete trust in Dr Whites expertise and technique. I discussed my desired goals with him, and he carefully assessed my body proportions, existing breast tissue, and overall aesthetic balance. Although I had initial apprehensions about relinquishing control over the size decision, I am thrilled to say that I couldn't be happier with the outcome. The size chosen by Dr White was absolutely perfect! I Highly Recommend Dr White!"- B.G. / Google / Jun 30, 2023

"I would 100% recommend Dr. White to anyone who is looking to get plastic surgery in Dallas. Their office staff and Dr. White himself are so professional. Being a registered nurse myself i am very cautious but felt so safe within his practice. I had a breast augmentation and could not have been more happy with my results. I was worried about pain and how they would look and my procedure was not only minimally painful, my results are exquisite."- A.B. / Google / Aug 02, 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.
