Dealing with the weight of large breasts can cause many issues, including breathing problems; back, shoulder and neck pain; poor posture; bra strap indentations and chafing under the breasts. For some women, surgery is the answer.
Is Breast Reduction Right for You?
If you find your large breasts interfering with normal daily activities or exercise, consider a breast reduction. South Jersey patients can look to Dr. Franckle’s expertise to work toward their desired breast size. After a breast reduction, our patients often find they have more confidence and freedom from associated health problems. If you’ve been dealing with pain and discomfort—physically or mentally—due to the size of your breasts, this procedure may be for you. At your consultation, Dr. Franckle will discuss your desires and goals from this procedure, evaluate your health and determine if you are a candidate for breast reduction.
3D Imaging for Breast Reduction
For our breast surgery consultations, we use a state-of-the-art 3D imaging technology to produce post-surgery simulations. With the help of specially placed cameras, several photos of your body are taken a 3D image is created, right there at your consultation. Dr. Franckle will then make modifications to the size and shape of your breasts in the 3D image to give you a depiction of what your projected surgery result will look like. This tool allows us to pinpoint your ideal size and shape, so we can better plan for your desired results. No more imagining what you may look like after surgery – now we can show you!
Breast reduction is a medical procedure that is performed with general anesthesia in a hospital or surgical center. To begin the procedure Dr. Franckle will make incisions around the areola and then down the center of each breast to the underneath. The nipple is then moved up to the desired location and excess tissue is excised. Patients can typically expect to return home the day after the surgery.
Dr. Franckle is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has a great deal of experience performing breast reduction. Patients can count on guidance from Dr. Franckle and the staff every step of the way, from consultation to post operative visits.

Like all surgical procedures, recovery should be taken seriously. By following Dr. Franckle’s instructions precisely, you can increase your chances of speedy recovery. After surgery, your incisions will be dressed, and you will need to wear a post-surgical bra to minimize movement and hold your breasts symmetrically. Medication can be used to minimize initial discomfort, which should subside more each day. Scars can take up to a year to fade, although many women report fading as early as six months.*
The cost for a breast reduction can range between $7,800 and $9,000. The price difference depends on how extensive the surgery is. For an exact cost, please visit our office for a consultation with Dr. Franckle.

How to Prepare
A breast reduction is an out patient procedure so you will be released from the surgery center the same day. You will need someone to drive you home from the surgery center and we suggest having someone by your side for the first 1-2 days to help with everyday tasks. The first few days of recovery are the most important. You will be sore and your body will require a lot of energy to heal.
Post Operative Instructions
You will be given post operative instructions following your procedure. Dr.Franckle will also discuss these instructions with you at the surgery center before you are discharged. Please follow these instructions! Should any questions or concerns arise, do not hesitate to reach out to the office by phone or email.
