Your Breast Reduction Journey

  1. Consultation for Breast Reduction in Columbia, SC

    You and Dr. Lefkowitz will sit together in a private consultation room and discuss your desired results to develop a customized treatment plan. He will carefully examine your breasts, taking special note of size/volume, symmetry, nipple position, and skin quality. A robe will be provided to make your experience as comfortable and private as possible.

    Scheduling and Insurance/financial options will be reviewed in detail to answer any questions you may have. We aim for all clients who are researching a Breast Reduction in Columbia, SC to fully understand the procedure. Our Breast Reduction clients visit us from Lexington, Chapin, Forest Acres, surrounding areas, and nearby states.

  2. Arrival for Surgery

    When you arrive, you (and a guest if preferred) will be shown to your pre-op room, which you will return to after surgery for your post-op care to maximize your comfort and privacy.

  3. During the Procedure

    Natural light in the operating suite provides a view of the sky as you enter and makes the space more welcoming while still providing the highest level of privacy.

    During the surgery, Dr. Lefkowitz will remove excess skin and breast tissue as well as reposition the nipple areola to a higher, more youthful position, creating a lighter and more comfortable breast.

    A variety of skin incisions/scars may be utilized depending on your particular situation. However, the most common pattern of incisions goes around the areola, down vertically and horizontally within the natural breast crease. This is called an “anchor, Wise, or inverted T” incision.

  4. Recovery

    Most clients experience only mild discomfort after a breast reduction in Columbia, SC. Prescription medications will help ease the healing process.

    • Immediately Post Procedure

      You will be up walking, eating and drinking normally. A support bra or wrap is placed at the time of surgery.

    • 2 - 3 Days Post-Procedure

Versus symbol

Dr. Lefkowitz is wonderful. He is very caring. His staff is warm and welcoming. I had an excellent experience and would highly recommend this practice. I had a breast reduction, breast lift, and liposuction in the bra area. I had one breast significantly larger than the other. Dr. Lefkowitz is quite meticulous, taking his time to ensure the final look is as close to perfect as can be achieved. closing quote icon
