Breast Reduction in Charleston County, SC

Just as many women feel their natural breasts are too small, many other women feel they naturally have breasts that are too large. In those cases, a breast reduction can reduce the natural breast size. Led by plastic surgeon Dennis K. Schimpf, MD, MBA, FACS, Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery has offices in Charleston, Summerville, and Hilton Head, South Carolina. We offer effective breast reductions for women who live in Charleston County and the surrounding South Carolina communities.

What Is a Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction is a plastic surgery procedure in which natural breasts are reduced in size. When a woman is dissatisfied by the large size of her breasts, Dr. Schimpf can reduce the size using simple, safe methods. The result is smaller, symmetrical breasts. The procedure is performed completely on an individualized basis, and Dr. Schimpf will only remove the amount of breast tissue in order to best achieve the patient’s overall desired outcome.

Benefits of a Breast Reduction

Breast reduction allows women to enjoy several benefits. Some of the most commonly enjoyed benefits of a breast reduction include:

  • Ability to run, jump, and exercise more comfortably
  • Alleviation of chronic back and shoulder pain
  • Easier time shopping for clothing and bras
  • A more proportionate, athletic, and slimmer physique
  • Enhanced self-esteem

Who Is The Ideal Candidate For a Breast Reduction?

Dr. Schimpf will determine your candidacy for a breast reduction at your initial consultation. Because a breast reduction can be performed for medical reasons, it is also possible that your chiropractor or general practitioner has recommended a reduction for increased comfort. If you feel your natural breasts are too large, it is likely you are a strong candidate for this procedure.

What Do I Need To Do Before a Breast Reduction?

Dr. Schimpf likes his patients to feel in control and relaxed while undergoing plastic surgery procedures. Before your consultation, he recommends that you think about your desired outcome for the procedure in detail. You should consider such questions as: What measurements do you desire? What bra size do you feel would be best for you? Dr. Schimpf will work with you to create a detailed treatment plan, helping you to determine the exact size for your breast reduction.

When Will I See The Results?

You will see the results of your breast reduction immediately, as a portion of your breast tissue will be gone. However, it is natural to experience swelling and some “settling in” for the breast tissue, so you can continue to see positive results for a couple of months following the procedure.

How Much Does a Breast Reduction Cost in Charleston County?

Breast reduction costs can vary depending on the scope of your procedure. At your initial consultation, Dr. Schimpf will determine the cost of your procedure and our experienced staff will review all payment information with you. We will go over our payment options, which includes financing through CareCredit®. We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards and ask that full payment be made prior to your services.
