Women with large breasts can experience several physical and emotional burdens. Breast reduction surgery creates a more balanced body proportion that can help women who are looking to free themselves from the discomfort and other problems caused by their breasts. Dr. Evan Sorokin is a trusted, board-certified plastic surgeon at Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery in New Jersey who performs breast reduction surgery on a regular basis to give his patients a more balanced appearance. This surgery provides great relief for Dr. Sorokin’s patients who suffer from physical and emotional discomfort. Dr. Sorokin is known for his specialization in breast surgery – from breast reduction surgery to complex revision cases.

Reasons For Reduction

Many women with larger breasts find that breast reduction surgery results in a remarkable transformation if their breast size causes:


  • Back, neck, or shoulder pain
  • Self-consciousness and emotional anxiety
  • Premature sagging
  • Disproportionate or top heavy body shape
  • Discomfort during physical activity
  • Painful bra strap marks and/or rashes
  • Unwelcome stares and awkwardness

Initial Consultation

During the initial consultation, Dr. Sorokin will discuss surgical options for breast reduction surgery, as well as gain a clear understanding as to what the patient’s objectives are. This allows him to select a surgical method that will give patients the best breast size, position, and shape they want. Dr. Sorokin will also help patients weigh the pros and cons of breast reduction surgery so they can make an informed decision.

Surgical Technique

Dr. Sorokin's breast reduction technique does more than just create smaller breasts. He also creates breasts that are lighter, firmer, and elevated for an improved look and feel. The breast reduction procedure begins with a carefully placed incision that circles the areola and drops down to where the breast connects to the chest wall (also known as the inframammary fold). Through this incision, Dr. Sorokin is able to remove excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin. He then repositions the nipple and areola and closes the incision to give the breasts a tightened and lifted look. Variations on this technique may be used depending on the patient’s body and cosmetic goals.


Compression and medical chest wraps are applied immediately following the procedure to aid the healing process and to minimize movement of the breasts. Patients will need to get plenty of rest and limit their movement for several days after surgery. Once the bandages are removed, patients are fitted with a specialized surgical bra that will need to be worn at all times for several weeks. Although most patients return to their daily activities in a few days, the breasts may still ache occasionally for up to a month. Most swelling and bruising will subside in the first few weeks, but it may be 6 months to a year before the breasts settle into their new shape, and even then, their shape may change in response to hormonal shifts, weight changes, or pregnancy. The patient’s breasts may swell and become tender during the first menstrual period after surgery. Stitches are generally removed in 1-3 weeks. Many patients are concerned about scarring following breast reduction surgery. Dr. Sorokin will place incisions so that scarring is as inconspicuous as possible, but scars may remain lumpy and red for several months before gradually becoming less obvious.

Expected Cost

During the initial consultation, Dr. Sorokin will develop a treatment plan based on the patient’s needs and goals and then he will be able to provide a cost estimate. The estimate includes such items as the surgeon's fee, anesthesia fee, operating room fee, and any materials needed during or after the surgery. On average, this surgery runs between $7,000-$10,000. While some insurance plans may cover breast reduction, Dr. Sorokin does not participate with commercial insurance plans. The staff at Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery will work with patients to secure the financing for their procedure.

Breast Reduction FAQs

Minimizing Scars?

Scarring is an inevitable part of any medical procedure that requires an incision. Over time, scars will fade from red to pink to white, and their appearance can be further reduced by closely following the post-operative instructions given by Dr. Sorokin. Topical ointments and herbal supplements, such as Arnica Montana, can also lessen the appearance of scars, but patients should talk to Dr. Sorokin before using anything. Patients who are still bothered by scars after they've completely healed should consider laser skin resurfacing can help to permanently fade the scars.


Altered sensations of the breast skin and nipple are common temporary symptoms following breast reduction surgery. Some women may experience numbness, while others may experience hypersensitivity. In some cases, these altered sensations may be permanent.

Reduction or Lift?

Some women with large breasts only want to eliminate the sagging that makes their breasts look older and their goals can usually be accomplished with a breast lift.  Other women are unhappy with both the large size and shape of their breasts and will benefit most from a breast reduction. Dr. Sorokin will provide patients with a professional recommendation during the initial consultation.
