Breast Reduction Columbus
Conveniently located to serve Columbus, Ohio
Breast reduction surgery is a popular procedure for women with disproportionately large breasts that are a source of physical, quality of life, and self-esteem issues. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Lichten offers breast reduction surgery in Columbus for women who want smaller, shapelier, and perkier breasts and relief from the issues caused by large breasts.
Issues Caused by Large Breasts
Women with large, heavy breasts often are familiar with neck and back pain, bra strap indentations on the shoulders, rashes under the breasts, and general upper-body discomfort. Some women with large breasts even find exercise and an active lifestyle exceptionally uncomfortable.
Dr. Lichten also understands that large breasts may cause problems with self-esteem, especially in young women. Breast reduction can help Southeast Ohio and Columbus area women substantially improve both their physical and emotional health.
Dr Lichten and his whole staff are beyond amazing. My whole life I had always been larger chested. As I have grown and had two children my chest only grew and it was really taking a toll on my body. As a 30 year old my posture was awful, my back was always aching and I was constantly getting head aches. I tried chiropractors but they were only a temporary relief and wanted me there 3 times a week. I had been on prescriptions for my head aches but nothing was helping. Even just standing to do dishes or sitting to fold laundry I would get horrible back aches. The day I got out of surgery I felt an immediate difference in my posture. It has been over 6 months since my surgery and I have not had a headache or any back pain at all!! Not only is the surgery a tremendous difference in my body physically but my self esteem has improved so much. Having the breast reduction surgery truly has been life changing. Dr Lichten is one of the best doctors I have ever met! He not only made me feel welcome and comfortable but he really listens and cared about me as a patient as far as not only my needs but what I was hoping for. He has some of the best staff you will ever experience. Each and everyone of them have helped contribute to always having exceptional care. Dr Lichten and his staff truly are some of the best!!!”

The Breast Reduction Procedure
Breast reduction is both a cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery procedure for Columbus women that creates breasts which are smaller, lighter and more proportionate to the body. Self-confidence and comfort may be restored after breast reduction surgery. As with a breast lift, incisions need to be made on the breast but the resulting scars are well hidden in clothing or a bathing suit. Breast reduction is one of the most transformative Columbus cosmetic surgery procedures Dr. Lichten performs – the most common complaint he hears is that patients wish they had their surgery sooner.
Breast Reduction Recovery
Swelling and bruising are to be expected following breast reduction surgery. Patients may experience some discomfort during the first few days of the recovery process. A special surgical bra will need to be worn to provide support. Patients are able to return to work after about two weeks of recovery. Some light exercise can be resumed after around four weeks, but patients will need to avoid strenuous activity for around six weeks.
Breast Reduction Cost
Breast reduction is a highly personalized procedure. The price of breast reduction varies between patients based on their unique needs and desired results. Central Ohio Plastic Surgery offers financing options to help make the payment process more manageable for our patients. Payment and financing options can be addressed during the consultation process.
