Dr. Sauerhammer performs breast reduction surgery to decrease the size and improve the symmetry of the breasts. The procedure is well established and can provide significant improvement, whether you have been experiencing chronic discomfort or want to change the aesthetics of your breasts.

Women in Appleton and Green Bay rely on Dr. Sauerhammer because of her skill and supportive treatment she offers. She is a board-certified plastic surgeon whose attention to detail, and artistic eye help patients achieve predictable and attractive outcomes. Visit our practice, and she and our staff will help you to understand how a breast reduction works and what you can expect in our care.

Benefits of Breast Reduction

With breast reduction surgery, Dr. Sauerhammer can:

Breast Reduction Asymmetry

Correct asymmetry. If one of your breasts is much larger than the other, surgery can bring them into balance.

Breast Reduction Discomfort Icon

Alleviate discomfort. Overly large breasts cause many women chronic neck and back pain. A breast reduction can provide a meaningful improvement in your quality of life.

Breast Reduction Rashes Icon

Limit the development of rashes and irritation beneath your breasts.

Breast Reduction Obstacles Icon

Remove obstacles to participating in your favorite activities.

In addition to these benefits, many of our Appleton and Green Bay patients have a reduction because they want smaller, shapely, and younger-looking breasts. During a consultation at our practice, Dr. Sauerhammer can help you understand the type of results surgery can provide.

Is Breast Reduction Right for You?

You may be a good candidate for a breast reduction if you have been experiencing chronic neck pain, back pain, or skin irritation related to having large breasts. In addition, you may want to consider surgery if the size of your breasts has been preventing you from exercising or participating in your favorite activities.

Aesthetic change is a third reason to explore a reduction. Surgery can make your breasts more symmetrical if they differ in size. It can also raise the position of your breasts, make them look more youthful, and bring them into harmony with your body’s frame.

What Is the Recovery from Breast Reduction Like?

Your breast reduction will take place under general anesthesia in a high-quality local surgical facility. The procedure will be similar to a breast lift in many ways except that Dr. Sauerhammer will remove excess tissue as well as excess skin to give you the shape, size, and position you want. You can expect to go home on the same day as your procedure. Dr. Sauerhammer will remove your surgical drains in a follow-up appointment one to two days after your surgery, and you will wear a supportive bra for about two months afterward.

Most of our patients take two weeks off from normal activities, including work. You should avoid heavy lifting for 6-8 weeks. Swelling can take as little as three months or as long as six months to subside entirely. Incision scars may need about one year to reach their final appearance. Wisconsin Institute of Plastic Surgery will support you along the way by providing you with resources and information about proper scar care, massage, and sun care, which should help scars fade significantly over time.

Pricing for Breast Reduction in Appleton and Green Bay

The price depends in part on whether you have a unilateral procedure (one breast) or a bilateral procedure (both breasts). The difference comes from the amount of time and medical resources that the surgery requires.

Dr. Sauerhammer and our team will answer any questions you have about breast reduction, including the factors that affect pricing. We want you to choose your care with confidence, to feel supported throughout your experience, and to love the outcome of your surgery.
