Breast reduction is an operation that is usually considered a reconstructive procedure and is many times covered by insurance plans. The surgery is performed to make the breasts smaller, as well as lift the breasts to a more youthful position. The purpose of the surgery is to alleviate back and neck pain as well as to aid in hygiene in the folds underneath the breasts.

Marks are made on the skin according to the type of reduction planned by the patient and the surgeon. This is usually performed before the patient is taken back to the operating room with the patient in a sitting or standing position.

The nipple-areola section of skin is removed and saved.

Excess skin and breast tissue is removed.

The incisions are closed with sutures and the nipple-areola skin is reattached.

The patient is placed in a compression garment or bra. Compression garments are an important part of the recovery process. The garment provides support, comfort and helps to minimize swelling. The patient is usually wearing a bra or some type of supportive garment at all times, except when showering. Healing time is approximately three months. Scarring is variable and often depends on the patient`s ability to heal.

Objective  To estimate annual direct and indirect health care costs in patients with chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU) managed with conventional therapies.

Design  A cost analysis consisting of a survey-guided and retrospective medical record review of direct and indirect health care costs from a societal perspective in patients with CIU.

Setting  The Johns Hopkins University allergy and dermatology ambulatory clinics.

Participants  Fifty adults with active CIU were recruited in sequential order. Individuals who were taking corticosteroids or other immunosuppressants in the month before enrollment were excluded from the study.

Main Outcome Measures  We estimated direct health care costs, which included laboratory, medication, outpatient visit, and emergency department and hospital visit costs. We also estimated indirect costs, which included earnings lost owing to travel to outpatient visits and absences from work owing to CIU-related illness.

Results  Patients with CIU consumed a mean (SD) of $2047 ($1483) annually. Because CIU is primarily an outpatient disease, medication costs alone accounted for 62.5% ($1280) of the total annual cost. Indirect costs accounted for 15.7% ($322) of the total costs.

Conclusions  High medication costs, followed by total indirect costs, result in the largest economic burden among patients with CIU. High medication costs may place low-income patients at risk for suboptimal treatment and increased burden due to poorly controlled disease. Our estimated total health care costs for CIU are comparable to those of other skin diseases such as vitiligo and bullous disease.
