Breast Reduction in Columbus

Do you suffer from the physical and emotional discomfort of having oversized breasts? You are not alone. Many women choose to have breast reduction surgery with Dr. Bivik Shah at the Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery. This procedure can help you:

  • Relieve back pain, neck pain, headaches, and shoulder pain
  • Prevent rashes and infections under the breasts
  • Improve your posture and mobility
  • Boost your self-confidence and body image
  • Find clothes and bras that fit better
  • Avoid unwanted attention and harassment

You may be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery if you have any of these problems and wish to reduce the size of your breasts. Dr. Shah and his staff will consult with you and explain the benefits and risks of the surgery, as well as answer any questions you may have.

Breast reduction surgery involves removing excess breast tissue, fat, and skin, and reshaping the breasts to a smaller and more proportionate size. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes about two to three hours. The recovery time varies depending on the individual, but most patients can resume normal activities within a few weeks.

If you are interested in breast reduction surgery, contact Dr. Bivik Shah today for a consultation. He will help you achieve the results you desire and improve your quality of life.


Breast reduction surgery can leave some scars, but they usually fade over time and become less noticeable. Dr. Shah will use the best incision technique for your case, either a lollipop or an anchor shape, and give you tips to minimize scarring. Most women are happy with the trade-off of having smaller, firmer, and more comfortable breasts.

Insurance coverage for breast reduction surgery depends on your plan and your medical need. You may qualify if you have back pain, neck pain, headaches, rashes, or other problems caused by large breasts. You also need to meet the weight criteria for the tissue to be removed. At our practice, we do not accept insurance, but we offer financing options to help you pay for the surgery.

Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure that takes about two and a half hours. You will be asleep during the surgery and go home the same day. Dr. Shah will remove excess fat, tissue, and skin from your breasts, and reshape them to a smaller and more proportionate size. He may also adjust the size and position of your areolas. You will recover in about a few weeks and enjoy your new look and feel.


To begin your breast reduction journey, you need to book a consultation with Dr. Bivik Shah at our Columbus, Ohio, office. He will examine your breasts, explain the surgery details, and answer your questions. You can trust him and his staff to guide you through this important decision.

Breast reduction surgery is generally safe, but it has some risks like any surgery. These include:

  • Anesthesia risks
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Discomfort
  • Scarring
  • Asymmetry
  • Necrosis (skin or nipple loss)

If you are ready to take the next step, contact us today. Dr. Bivik Shah will help you achieve smaller, more comfortable, and more attractive breasts.
