What Is The Recovery Time From Shoulder Width Reduction?
Dr. Eppley, I have a question about the shoulder reduction treatment, I am wondering what the costs of this treatment would be?
I am emailing as I wish to reduce my shoulder width length. My shoulder width length is very problematic to me as I am a woman but my shoulders are so wide it gives me a very manly figure (see image). I have discovered about this surgery from an online forum from a patient who underwent treatment with Dr Eppley. I am curious as to how much the total procedure would cost, the recovery time and bone healing time.
A: Thank you for our inquiry and sending your pictures. Your bideltoid width appears to be greater than 50cms which would more masculine than feminine. Thus you would be a good candidate for shoulder reduction surgery. I will have my assistant Camille pass along the cost of the surgery to you later today. The total recovery time is six weeks which mainly relates to how long full range of motion of both shoulders is normalized. It is a progressive range of motion of the shoulders which begins at two weeks after surgery.
