How Much is a Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction costs vary widely between surgeons and in different locations. In addition, some pricing may not include fees such as anesthesia, prices for the surgical facility, and other expenses. Dr. Leong provides each patient with an individualized estimate of the total cost. For most patients, this will be about $14,700. When considering prices, make sure you choose a board-certified surgeon with the experience to provide excellent results.
How is a Breast Reduction Performed?
