Breast reduction

Excessive breast size can cause health and emotional problems for some women. Women with large, heavy breasts often suffer from back, neck and breast pain, tightness of the bra on the shoulders, rashes, and under-breast discharge. Women also seek breast reduction for aesthetic reasons, when the skin of the breasts becomes stretched and loses its former shape after breastfeeding or due to age.

How is the surgery performed?

The operation is performed under general anaesthesia and takes on average 3 hours.

Breast reduction surgery reduces the size and reshapes the breasts by removing unnecessary breast skin and underlying tissue. This surgery can reduce the areola, which often increases with breast enlargement.

The incisions are usually made around the areola, vertically downwards from the areola and in the crease under the breast. The surgery removes excess skin and breast tissue, raises the nipple and areola to the pre-operative height and creates an aesthetic breast shape. The operation is completed by leaving the drains, which are removed the day after the operation.

After the procedure, the patient is recommended to wear a special bra for several weeks. Patients usually return to work after 10-14 days, and more strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least several weeks.

Post-operative period:

  • The first day after surgery must be spent in the clinic.
  • The threads are removed after 10-14 days.
  • Active sports are recommended no earlier than 2 months after surgery.
  • After 10-14 days, you can return to work and resume your normal activities.
  • For 6-8 weeks after surgery, you need to wear a special bra for 22-23 hours a day.
  • As the surgery partially separates the nipple from the surrounding breast tissue and slightly disrupts the innervation, the sensitivity of the nipple is reduced but improves over time.
  • The final result can be seen after 4 months when the shape of the breast is finally formed.
  • The post-operative scar should be protected from direct sunlight for at least a year to keep it as small as possible. The scar usually fades within 2 years.
