Breast Reduction

Breast reduction or Mammoplasty

Breast reduction is a way to balance the body proportions, minimize physical ailments and improve the psychological comfort of a woman. It consists in removing the excess glandular tissue of the breast and skin in order to achieve the desired cup size. In addition, during the operation, the shape of the breasts are modeled so that they have the best aesthetic effect. Depending on the method of breast reduction, the incision and scar occur around the areola and vertically from the areola to the furrow under the breast or around the areola, vertically and in the fold.

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces the size and volume of the breasts by removing excess breast tissue, fat, and skin. The procedure is typically performed on women with large or heavy breasts who experience physical discomfort such as back, neck, or shoulder pain, or who have difficulty finding clothes that fit properly.

Breast reduction surgery can have several benefits, including improved physical comfort, increased mobility, and improved self-confidence and body image. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications associated with breast reduction surgery, including bleeding, infection, scarring, changes in nipple sensation, and problems with breast-feeding.

Breast Augmentation Consultation

We are never in a hurry and listen to all your questions and doubts.

    In the breast reduction consultation you should discuss:
  • The reason that you want to have your operation.
  • Your expectations and the desired outcome.
  • If you have any medical conditions, any drug allergies and previous medical treatments.
  • If you use any medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco or drugs.

    Your surgeon may also:
  • Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors.
  • Examine and measure your breasts, including detailed measurements of their size and shape, skin quality and placement of your nipples and areolas.
  • Take your photographs.
  • Discuss the options you have.
  • Recommend a course of treatment.

Breast Reduction Aftercare

Breast Reduction Aftercare

The recovery process after breast reduction surgery can take several weeks, during which time patients may experience some pain, swelling, and bruising. They may need to wear a supportive bra or compression garment during the healing process.


Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove excess breast tissue and skin to make the breasts smaller and more proportionate to the body.

Good candidates for breast reduction surgery are women with overly large breasts that cause physical symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, or rashes. Candidates should also be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the procedure.

Breast reduction surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and involves making incisions around the areola and down the breast. Excess breast tissue, fat, and skin are then removed, and the nipple is repositioned to a higher location on the breast. The remaining skin is then pulled together and sutured to create a smaller breast.

Breast reduction surgery can alleviate physical symptoms caused by overly large breasts, such as pain and discomfort in the back, neck, and shoulders. It can also improve self-esteem and body image.

Recovery after breast reduction surgery typically takes several weeks, during which patients should avoid strenuous activities and wear a supportive bra or compression garment. Pain, swelling, and bruising are common but should subside over time.

Breast reduction surgery can affect breastfeeding, as some of the milk ducts and glandular tissue may be removed during the procedure. However, many women are still able to breastfeed after breast reduction surgery.
