Breast Reduction in Chicago & Highland Park

While many women aspire to a figure complemented by an ample bust, many others find that their breasts are simply too large in proportion to the rest of their frame. These women may experience back and neck pain due to the weight of their breasts, and it may often prove difficult to find clothing that fits properly. At the Wiesman Cosmetic Surgery and Wellness Institute in Chicago, IL and Highland Park, IL, Dr. Irvin Wiesman offers an all-encompassing selection of cosmetic surgery services; each of these, including breast reduction, is designed with your goals and needs in mind.

Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery

Excessively large breasts can negatively affect your life in a number of significant ways. Women with copious amounts of breast tissue frequently experience a wide range of complications, including:

Anatomical reasons that women choose to pursue breast reduction surgery include heavy, pendulous breasts or a noticeable difference in size. These problems can also be alleviated with breast reduction surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

As is the case with any plastic surgery procedure, we want to ensure that you are well-informed regarding your options and our services before making a final decision regarding breast reduction. These are some of the most commonly asked questions associated with breast reduction surgery.

1. Does my insurance cover breast reduction? In many cases, breast reduction is performed specifically to spare the patient pain and physical harm. If it is determined that a breast reduction procedure is medically necessary to offer relief from chronic pain and other health issues, your insurance plan may cover the surgery. Ask Dr. Wiesman about how insurance applies to breast reduction at your consultation.

2. How long will it take me to recover? Every patient is different, and healing time does vary depending on a number of factors. Most women, however, return to normal daily activities within one to two weeks following surgery. Heavy lifting and other strenuous activities should typically be avoided for up to four weeks.

3. Will I have scars after breast reduction? Any surgical procedure will result in some amount of scarring; however, Dr. Wiesman specializes in vertical breast reduction, a technique that minimizes the formation of scar tissue and healing time. Any visible scars are generally located in areas that are easily covered by a bra or swimsuit.
