Breast reduction is a process where Dr. Weiler or Dr. Hogan surgically reduces the size of the breast to a patient’s desired size.* Large breasts can cause physical and emotional pain, as well as social anxiety. Many breast reduction patients from Lafayette, Covington, New Orleans, and the Baton Rouge, LA, area find they are not only more comfortable doing day-to-day activities but also lead healthier, more confident lives with more proportionate breasts. *

We often talk about wanting bigger breasts, but for women who have experienced the struggle with extra-large mammaries, we know it’s not a pleasant experience. Our plastic surgeons perform breast reduction to help women who are struggling in their day-to-day life because of the size of their breasts. They can also combine breast reduction with breast lift surgery in order to achieve the look you desire. This procedure is done by removing breast tissue to reduce volume and weight, as well as reshape the breast, which can help you get back to enjoying life pain-free. With a breast reduction, you can reduce pain and feel your best. Bra shopping will become easier and you will regain the confidence you had prior to the growth of your breasts.
How Much Does Breast Reduction Cost in Baton Rouge?
The cost for breast reduction surgery ranges from $9,400 to $11,400 depending on the specifics of the surgery. We provide patients from the surrounding area, New Orleans, and beyond with a personalized price estimate during the consultation to take home and consider. Our patient financing options are available for qualified patients who are interested.
Your surgeon places the breast reduction incision around the areola with a linear incision from the bottom of the areola down to the breast fold. This scar hides easily under swimsuits and garments. The length of the scar can vary depending on the patient, and after a few months these scars are virtually invisible.* Your surgeon will remove breast tissue from the bottom of the breast, reducing the volume and weight. The nipple remains intact throughout the procedure and is pulled to a higher location on the breast.
Your Surgical Experience
Breast reduction is performed at Weiler Plastic Surgery on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Patients will need someone to drive them home after the surgery and have someone stay with them a day or two after surgery. A support bra garment is applied after surgery and should be worn for a full six weeks.
If you are a current smoker, your surgeon advises you stop smoking a minimum of three weeks prior to your procedure. Smoking can greatly affect the healing process after a breast reduction. All current medications will be reviewed at your preoperative appointment and we will inform you if anything you are taking will need to be stopped prior to surgery.

Our Talented Duo
Our 2 board-certified plastic surgeons are proud to offer their unique talents to women and men in their home state of Louisiana. Dr. Jonathan Weiler's vision of delivering state-of-the-art techniques is shared by Dr. M'liss Hogan, who brings skill, experience, and a woman's touch to Weiler Plastic Surgery. As a mother herself, Dr. Hogan understands the effects pregnancy and breastfeeding can have on a woman's body and self-image.
Our plastic surgeons and their office staff will make your plastic surgery experience as easy and comfortable as possible, whether you’re a Baton Rouge local or driving in from New Orleans or beyond. You will be able to meet with Dr. Weiler or Dr. Hogan to discuss your areas of concern and goals for your breast surgery. A physical exam will be done to assess your breasts and you will be given a recommendation for the most effective procedure to meet and exceed your expressed goals, as well as alternative treatments.* At Weiler Plastic Surgery, we like for you to take as much time as you need to have all of your questions answered. Your satisfaction, desires, and goals are our primary concern.
What to Expect After Surgery
We like to see our patients back in the office one to two days after surgery. At this time dressings are removed and the incisions are assessed. Questions or concerns will be addressed at this time as well, and further instructions reviewed for optimal recovery. After the initial visit, you will be allowed to go home and shower. Patients will be seen at a week and again at two to three weeks post-operatively, at which time sutures will be removed if they are healing well. You should expect some swelling and bruising initially that will subside within a few weeks. Nipple sensation and skin sensitivity vary depending on the patient, but will return to normal over time.* Walking around after your surgery is very important to promote blood flow and decrease swelling.
Post-Op Activity Restrictions
A patient’s recovery after a breast reduction procedure is variable, but in general most patients are able to return to work within the first week following surgery and back to normal activities within two to three weeks.* Strenuous activity is to be avoided for several weeks following surgery, with patients lifting no more than 10 pounds.
For one full year following your surgery, we invite you to enjoy special discounts and rewards through our Post-Op Perks program.
