Breast reduction is a very common outpatient procedure that reduces the weight of heavy breasts and lifts the nipple areolar complex into a more pleasing appearance. It usually requires the patient to take about a week or so off of work.

How much a breast reduction may cost will vary depending upon where you live and the doctor you go to. In my office it is usually in the $8,000 - $9,000 range. Adding an inverted nipple repair could add $1,500 - $2,000. Where you have it done is up to you.
