Many of Dr. Reath’s and Dr. Walker’s happiest patients are Knoxville women who have had breast reduction surgery! Most of them we talk to have back and shoulder pain from the weight of their breasts and have trouble exercising as well as finding clothes that fit. A breast reduction can help.
The goal of the operation is to reduce the breasts to a size more in proportion with the rest of a woman’s body. Once they are the desired size, Dr. Reath or Dr. Walker gives them a lift as well. Our surgeons use different techniques depending on the size of the breasts to begin with. There will be incisions on the breast itself but he limits them as much as possible.

One thing that nearly everyone asks is how much breast reductions cost, so we include our surgery prices right here on our website. Amazing, right? Here’s what you’ll want to know:
The cost of a breast reduction with Dr. Reath or Dr. Walker includes both surgical and anesthesia fees, post-surgical bra, our exclusive recovery kit and all follow-up visits. There is a separate bill from the pathologist’s office that you will receive after your surgery. We have negotiated a special rate for our patients of $212.78. We’ll explain all during your consultation.
Great news! We offer a discount for our patients who would like to pay with a wire transfer or check instead of using a credit card or financing.

Most breast reductions are performed on an outpatient basis. The operation takes between 3 and 4 hours and you’ll be able to go home in the care of your family after you’ve recovered from the anesthesia. Many women ask us if a separate breast lift procedure is needed after the breast reduction and the answer to that is no. A breast lift is actually part of the breast reduction surgery.
Helping our patients manage a speedy recovery is one of our primary missions. This is a very well tolerated operation by most women. Generally, your neck and back may feel better the night after your surgery, than they did prior to your operation. Most women are up and about the day after surgery and generally take between 2 and 3 weeks off from work.
