Breast Reduction

At our Northbrook, Illinois, practice, some of Dr. Sisco’s happiest patients are those who visit him for breast reduction from Highland Park, Glenview, Arlington Heights, North Shore, and surrounding areas. Making sagging, pendulous breasts perkier and more proportionate can do wonders for a woman’s sense of femininity and confidence. Many of Dr. Sisco’s patients say that they love shopping for cute, delicate bras after surgery—or even having the option of going without a bra for the first time in years.

You Have Options

Breast reduction for our North Shore-area patients is a transformative procedure that has the potential to remedy both physical and emotional discomfort. This surgery typically reduces the size of the breasts while also lifting them, resulting in a more significant change. During your consultation, Dr. Sisco performs a physical evaluation of your breasts and discusses your medical history. Many women seeking breast reduction suffer from physical problems caused by the weight of their breasts, such as chronic back, neck, or shoulder pain. Together, you can also plan the specifics of your surgery.

If you’re satisfied with the size of your breasts but would like to change their shape or position, a breast lift may be more appropriate.

Some patients choose to combine their breast reduction with axillary breast tissue excision—a procedure that removes underarm bulges for more streamlined contours.

How Much Does Breast Reduction Surgery Cost?

In Chicago, breast reduction surgery typically costs $9,000 to $13,000, depending on several different factors, which include:

Surgery Day & Long-Term Results

Dr. Sisco typically performs breast reduction surgery as an outpatient procedure. Once you are completely anesthetized, he makes an incision—usually anchor-shaped—around your areola, down the lower portion of the breast, and horizontally along the breast crease. Dr. Sisco then removes an amount of breast tissue—determined by the metrics you discussed during your consultation—and tightens the breast skin. He lifts and reshapes the remaining breast tissue and may also reduce the size of the areolas to ensure they’re proportionate in relation to the breasts.

Although you can return home after your procedure, you’ll need to wear a special support garment during the first week or so. Most patients return to sedentary workplaces after about 1 week, with more time needed before resuming vigorous exercise.

In the long term, the results of your breast reduction surgery have the potential to be permanent, providing lifelong comfort and confidence.
