Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction, also known as Reduction Mammaplasty, is a procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size more in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with excessively large breasts (macromastia).

At Joseph Banis, MD, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery, we offer breast reduction surgery in Louisville for women who want smaller breasts that are better suited for their natural figure. 


Disproportionately large breasts can be an issue for a variety of reasons. They may draw unwanted attention from others, make it difficult to find clothing that fits properly, and some women may find that they can cause self-image issues. 

Women with large breasts may experience more than dissatisfaction with body image, they can also feel physical pain and experience a host of complications that can impair a woman’s ability to lead an active life. Many women experience joint and muscle pain in their neck, shoulder, and back due to the strain their large breasts place on their bodies.

Breast reduction focuses on both reducing the size of the breasts and ensuring the smaller breasts have an aesthetically pleasing appearance. The shape and symmetry of the breasts is a main focus to ensure that our patients are both happy with the size and overall appearance of their new breasts. 

During your consultation, one of our experienced plastic surgeons will ask about the issues you are experiencing and ask what your desired goals are for your procedure so that they can let you know if breast reduction surgery is the right choice for you.

Benefits of breast reduction include:

  • Removal of excess breast tissue and skin to achieve a breast size more in proportion with a woman’s body
  • Relief from back and neck pain
  • Improvement in posture
  • Relief from skin rashes
  • Relief from some breathing problems
  • Improvement in skeletal deformities


Breast reduction surgery is normally performed under general anesthesia and requires an overnight hospital stay. Swelling, bruising and some downtime are to be expected following your breast reduction surgery in Louisville. Most patients experience minimal discomfort but should plan to take it easy and avoid any heavy lifting for a number of weeks.

Follow-up visits will be scheduled to make sure that you are healing properly. If you experience any issues or concerns during your recovery, please contact your doctor so the issue can be properly examined and diagnosed. 


The cost of your breast reduction in Louisville will be discussed when you come in for your scheduled consultation with Dr. Banis. Or team will go over the details of the price of your procedure and answer any question you have about financing and payment options.
