How Much Does Breast Reduction Cost?

This price range includes the surgeon’s fees, operating room fees, overnight stay fee, anaesthesia fees, and post-operative garments. The amount you can expect to pay for your breast reduction procedure will vary based on the specifics of your surgical plan.
During your breast reduction consultation, Dr. Neil J. Zemmel will perform a physical exam and discuss your aesthetic goals. With this information, he will customize a surgical plan that can help you achieve your desired results.

Does Insurance Cover Breast Reduction?
Insurance providers typically only cover breast reduction surgery if the procedure is deemed medically necessary. If you suffer from one or more of the following as result of having enlarged breasts, you may be eligible for full or partial coverage:
- Pain in the neck, shoulders, and/or back
- Rashes in the skin underneath the breasts
- Discomfort from bra straps digging into the shoulders
The frequency at which you experience these issues and their severity will also factor into potential insurance coverage. You can learn more about what factors into insurance coverage for breast reduction on our financing page.
In addition to your personal health insurance, Richmond Aesthetic Surgery offers the option of CosmetAssure®—a cosmetic surgery insurance program. Those who opt to receive this coverage can recover from their breast reduction knowing that should a rare complication occur, they are covered up to the maximum limits of their policy. Coverage with CosmetAssure® lasts for the first 45 days after surgery with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
