Breast reduction (mammaplasty) procedures are done for a variety of reasons. While some women would like a smaller size breast than they were naturally given, others want a reduced size after pregnancy and nursing. Aside from decreasing breast size, a mammaplasty can also improve asymmetry and help make a woman feel more comfortable in her own body.
Breast reduction costs vary based on your goals, geographical location, and the skill of your surgeon. The complexity of your surgery can impact the price you’ll pay because it may take more surgical precision and time to get the results you want. Dr. Tenley K. Lawton is a board-certified surgeon who specializes in crafting personalized surgeries for every woman.
So, What Will You Pay?
A typical breast reduction procedure costs an average of $5,500-$7,000 in the Newport Beach and greater Orange County area. But, it’s important to remember no two cases are identical. You may pay much less or much more depending on your individual needs. Some mammaplasty procedures can top off at upwards of $14,000. The best way to determine the price you will pay is through an in-person consultation with a skilled surgeon.

Like all surgical procedures, there are many factors that contribute to the end-cost. At Tenley K. Lawton M.D., We provide top-quality care at competitive rates. You’ll receive individualized treatment plans to help you safely and effectively realize your ultimate goals.
The top three expenses that go into your breast reduction costs include:

Minor Surgical Expenses
There are a few minor expenses to take into consideration as well. When getting a quote, ask your surgeon if their cost estimate includes; medical tests, lab work, prescription medications, post-surgical garments, and/or follow-up visits. Although these costs aren’t overly significant, they can add up for patients paying out-of-pocket.
Is A Breast Reduction Right for You?
Most patients typically have a high satisfaction rate after their procedure and consider the cost well worth the investment in their future-self. A breast reduction may be right for you if you’re unhappy with the shape or size of your breasts due to genetics, pregnancy, or changes in weight. Patients should be in otherwise good health and have realistic expectations about what the surgery can do for them.
