Breast Reduction in Winnipeg, MB

Breast reduction is performed to reduce the weight and volume of your breasts, returning them to a youthful shape and size.

If you have oversized breasts that cause back pain, shoulder pain, headaches, and overall body fatigue, it can be emotionally and physically draining.

Larger breasts can change shape and sag due to weight fluctuation, aging, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. The additional weight can give you poor posture, neck pain, shoulder pain, and skin irritation. All the physical problems that come along with excess breast tissue may cause you to feel uncomfortable in your own skin.

Breast Reduction surgery resizes, reshapes, and repositions your breasts to fit your body frame so you will look and feel more proportionate. Smaller, lighter, and firmer breasts are created by removing your excess fat, excess tissue, and excess skin so you can look and feel your best.

  • Excess fatty tissue in the breast, along with glandular tissue and excess skin are removed.
  • Areolas (dark skin around the nipple) are reduced in size to match your newly reduced breasts.
  • Reduces back pain, neck strain and shoulder grooving from bra straps.
  • Improves posture.
  • Performed under general anesthetic in 2 to 2.5 hours most commonly through an “anchor” incision. Some select cases may be performed by liposuction alone through tiny incisions.

Your procedure will take place at Dr. Avi Islur’s state of the art cosmetic surgery centre, The First Glance Aesthetic Clinic & Surgery Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

How Much Does Breast Reduction Surgery Cost?

Every Breast Reduction is a customized procedure, so the cost can vary significantly. In general, the cost of Breast Reduction surgery ranges from $7,500 to $10,000. The exact cost is determined by your existing anatomy, unique surgical requirements, and desired aesthetic results. The extent of your procedure will determine the exact cost. If you require additional surgical time or additional surgical procedures to achieve your desired aesthetic results, that will be reflected in your quote.

The surgeon you decide to work with is the #1 determining factor on the results you’re going to achieve. Plastic Surgeons price their procedures according to the quality care and surgical skills they bring to their patients. Seeking a surgeon based on price often leads to undesirable results, and the problems that come along with it are often complex (and costly) to fix. Ask anyone who has undergone revision surgery; it’s a lot less expensive to get it done right the first time.

An exact quote will be provided after your in-clinic consultation with Dr. Avi Islur by his Patient Coordinator. The exact cost of your surgery will be determined by your unique surgical requirements. Quotes are valid for 6 months from the date they are printed.

Breast Reduction Recovery

As with most aesthetic surgeries, you will need to take time to recover. The recovery period will be different for each patient, depending on the extent of the operation and the patient’s health.

You will have bandages in the area for the first few days. There will be swelling, discoloration, and bruising, but this should diminish in a week or two. You may return to work and resume daily activities after one week. Avoid any straining, bending, exercise, or lifting for 4 to 6 weeks.

Full recovery can take up to 6-8 weeks but most patients feel they are perfectly fine after 1-2 weeks. It is important to note, everyone is unique and heals at their own pace.
