What Is Breast Reduction?

For women with oversized breasts, everyday activities can cause back, neck, and shoulder pain, chafing and irritation at the bra straps, and limited choices when it comes to clothing and swimwear. Reduction mammoplasty, aka breast reduction surgery, removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve a breast size that is more proportionate to your body. The procedure also alleviates the discomfort and loss of stamina associated with overly large breasts. 

The level of professionalism, understanding, patience, and compassion Dr. Burgdorf and his staff have is amazing. I am so glad I chose Music City Plastic Surgery for my breast reduction! It’s a relaxing and spa-like environment and you really feel heard when expressing your concerns. I really appreciate how the staff is always pleasant and a pleasure to interact with. If I ever have a need for another procedure, I’ll be back! Thank you!

GalaFlex: The Internal Bra

To maximize results after breast surgery, Dr. Burgdorf uses GalaFlex, the internal bra. This is a dissolvable mesh made of a material similar to dissolvable sutures. It is placed inside the chest to ensure the breast structure remains viable and youthful over time. As the mesh dissolves gradually over the course of several years, it is replaced with natural collagen, which acts as an innate scaffolding for the breasts, keeping them perky and elevated despite the aging process.

How is Breast Reduction Performed?

Dr. Burgdorf has mastered a variety of surgical techniques and will choose the best approach for achieving your unique cosmetic goals. One's breast reduction surgery in Nashville is typically performed under general anesthesia and takes 3 to 4 hours to complete. After creating your incisions, Dr. Burgdorf will remove excess skin and tissue and reposition the nipple in a more youthful, elevated location. The areola will be resized appropriately. For some patients, Dr. Burgdorf may perform a breast lift and liposuction in combination with breast reduction. His goal is always to provide a natural-looking and balanced final result.

Incision Options

There are three incision types to choose from. The first encircles the nipple, with scarring well hidden in the darker pigments of the areola. This approach is well-suited for those who need a minimal amount of tissue removal. The second incision type encircles the nipple, and then runs down vertically to the breast crease, mimicking the shape of a lollipop.

This option is well-suited to those with a medium amount of required tissue removal. Finally, for those with a significant amount of tissue to be removed, an anchor incision encircles the nipple, runs down vertically to the breast crease, and then extends horizontally along the inframammary fold.

Insurance Concerns

If you have been experiencing pain or other physical problems because of your breast size, your health insurance may cover some of the costs of breast reduction surgery, but proceed with caution. Dr. Burgdorf has seen, too often, patients from other surgeons who have undergone an insurance-based breast reduction be dissatisfied and disappointed with the results. Often this was because the priority was in ensuring all the stringent  “requirements” were met for insurance coverage, not the results that a patient would live with for the rest of her life. Dr. Burgdorf takes a different approach to this.

While an insurance-based breast reduction can be seen initially as a positive in some patients' eyes, in reality, many have found results dictated by unreasonable insurance requirements that are less than attractive, and Dr. Burgdorf believes, frankly, this is the wrong way to treat patients. In today's climate of high deductibles and large out-of-pocket co-pays, combined with results that are inconsistent with a patient’s cosmetic desires, Dr. Burgdorf feels that offering an insurance-based breast reduction is a disservice to his patients and he will refuse to be constricted by insurance demands.

Costs of Breast Reduction

Dr. Burgdorf establishes a relationship with each patient and this relationship is invaluable in his quest to deliver the ideal results. He is NOT beholden to some insurance clerk sitting behind a computer without any insight or any compassion for how the surgery will impact that person’s life. While other surgeons may bend the knee to large insurance carriers, Dr. Burgdorf is responsible to you as his patient, and to you alone. To that end, Music City Plastic Surgery is a self-pay office without the limitations typically imposed by insurance and agreed to by other surgeons. Your happiness is our most important consideration at Music City Plastic Surgery, not some specific number or box checked to comply with unreasonable insurance requirements.
