Oversized breasts can cause social and functional concerns for women. In addition, uneven and very large breasts can create insecurity issues and overall embarrassment, as well as joint pain. Dr. Chet Mays is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Louisville, KY who has helped countless women get back their confidence and feel more comfortable through breast reduction surgery. This aesthetic surgery at Mays Plastic Surgery & Med Spa reduces excess fat, tissue, and skin to redefine and reshape the breasts to a smaller and healthier size. This surgery also reconstructs the size of the areolas and nipples and repositions them so they appear normal with the new breast size. In most situations, a breast lift is implemented to provide a more taut and younger-looking appearance.

Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient treatment and is performed with the patient under general anesthesia. The timeframe for the surgery is dependent upon a few factors, including what incision method is used, the overall reduction technique, and finally, the degree of reduction. The nipple and areola repositioning is also a factor. For most patients, liposuction is used for tissue and fat reduction to reduce breast size. During the consultation, all of these aspects are addressed with Dr. Mays. Potential scarring is also thoroughly discussed as it is common to occur. However, advanced techniques have led to a noticeable reduction in the visibility of scarring. Depending on the intricacy of the reduction, either an inverted-T or a straight line (vertical) incision will be used. Breast fat and tissue will be removed, and the remaining skin and tissue will be tightened.

I am honestly blown away with the care I have received from Chet Mays and his team. They are all over the top caring, understanding and make it clear that they hold no judgement. I had breast augmentation and a tummy tuck performed by Chet Mays. From consult to Post-operation I received top of the line care and results that are like a dream. It's hard to believe that this body is mine after 3 pregnancies, the last which was twins I thought I'd have to live in that skin forever. I have not had a single negative experience.

Dr Mays and his staff are truly one of a kind and flat out AMAZING! The minute I had my first consult with him I knew I didn't need to look any further. I am 8 months post-op from lipo, breast reduction and tummy tuck. Unfortunately, I had a little setback from a large seroma several months ago that caused some elasticity problems. Dr Mays was confident my revision two weeks ago would yield the results I wanted. He was not wrong! I could not be more happy with my new look. Thank you for everything!

About Us
How much does breast reduction surgery cost?

Your cost for breast reduction surgery will be reviewed with Dr. Mays in your consultation. Once he has developed your treatment plan, it is easier to calculate your costs, including facility fees, anesthesia, and more. Reduction surgery often causes a dramatic improvement in all aspects of life, which is why our staff will help you find low-interest financing to make your treatment easy to afford. We will also help you work with your health insurance provider to see if your policy covers some expenses.

Will my insurance cover breast reduction?

In some cases, your health insurance may cover part of the cost of your surgery if it's deemed medically necessary. If you want to use your insurance, talk to Dr. Mays so he can help you with your claim. You should also talk to your insurance company to determine if your policy may pay for the surgery and what they need. Your insurance will most likely decide based on your weight, height, body mass index (BMI), and body surface area.

Will my nipples be moved?

In most cases, the nipples and areola will be moved up to a central position during breast reduction surgery. If a large amount of tissue and skin are being removed, your nipple-areola complex may need to be moved. Dr. Mays will select a technique like an anchor incision so the nipple and areola can be moved higher. It's also possible to perform an areolatome to reduce the size of the areolas. Your options will be discussed during your consultation before Dr. Mays helps you choose the best treatment plan to achieve your goals.
