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 wanted a breast augmentation for a very long time but waited until after I had kids. Finally, it was time to think about me after breastfeeding my two children. My husband helped me find Dr White in Dallas. We decided it was worth the drive from Oklahoma, he was personable, friendly, confident and very knowledgeable. My husband and I felt really comfortable with our decision. When surgery day came, I was feeling excited but terrified of anesthesia. Dr White was calm and reassuring which really helped put me at ease. I'm so glad we drove to see Dr White and I'm so happy with my new self. I can finally fill a bra again and everything I put on looks great!! His staff was friendly, I really enjoy seeing them at recheck appointments. If I have any questions, they are quick to respond. I would recommend Dr White and his staff to anyone who may be seeking a wonderful, caring surgeon and team."- M.D. / Google / Oct 26, 2022

"Perfect breasts for me! I wanted bigger but natural - I saw Dr. Steven White and his amazing office staff in Dallas for a breast augmentation. My Mom, sisters, and I have always talked about getting this done but I honestly never thought I would be the first of the 4 of us. I was always on the fence thinking- “Is this something I really need?” “Is this selfish of me?” “What are risks?” I have a husband and three children and I honestly was really nervous about any type of surgery as this would be my first. I decided to go in for the consultation to ask all the questions. Immediately I felt welcomed and the staff and Dr. White are SO witty and knowledgeable of every single detail you could ever think of regarding the before, during, and after of a breast augmentation. I was given the confidence booster and reassurance I needed to book the surgery. I was still nervous- but way more so excited. The surgical staff and center was amazing. I felt like I was in and out in the blink of an eye, but yet also very well taken care of. The recovery has been fast and way easier than I had expected. I chose Dr. White based on all of his top notch reviews and overall my first impressions of him. He is warm, welcoming, and straight to the point (my favorite). He shoots it to you straight and I can’t even begin to tell you how amazed I am of my results. He had me bring in pictures to the office - too small, too big, and “the prettiest breasts for me”. I feel like he hit the nail right on the head. They really are the perfect breasts for me. I wanted bigger but natural and I am so, so happy I chose Dr. White. I love that I can now feel more confident, feminine, and just have fun with them to be honest. If I could walk around and promote Dr. White and his staff for breast augmentations, I would. That’s how confident I am in saying if you are on the fence like me- do it! You will be so happy you did."- G. / RealSelf / Nov 06, 2022
"After having multiple c-sections & considering a tummy tuck, I knew Dr. Steven J White @usaplasticsurgery in Dallas was THE ONLY CHOICE for me to get my pre baby body back. Dr. White & his team are professional, kind & made me feel comfortable from the first consultation to every post op appointment. Dr. White went to great lengths to make sure my husband (my caretaker) & I were educated on what to expect during the procedure & proper post operative care. I had peace of mind knowing he had equipped me with the tools to get the best possible result. I still can’t believe what I see in the mirror. Dr. White is a miracle worker! I have the cutest little belly button and my scar is a barely visible fine line.If you are on the fence about your choice in a plastic surgeon, look no further than Dr. Steven J White @usaplasticsurgery in Dallas. There is a reason I returned to Dr. White after having a breast augmentation from him 20 years ago. He’s the BEST! "- C. / Healthgrades / Jan 07, 2023
"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
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.
