Breast Volume & Size

Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reduce the size and weight of excessively large breasts. It is primarily sought after by individuals experiencing physical and emotional discomfort due to the disproportionate size of their breasts. This surgery involves the removal of excess breast tissue, reshaping the breast, and repositioning the nipple-areola complex to achieve a more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing result.

Breast reduction also offers various health benefits. It can alleviate chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain caused by the excessive weight of large breasts. Additionally, it can improve posture and enhance the ability to engage in physical activities comfortably.

Breast Reduction FAQs

Who is a suitable candidate for breast reduction?

Candidates for breast reduction are individuals with breasts that are disproportionately large in relation to their body frame and are experiencing issues such as chronic pain, limited mobility, skin irritations, and emotional distress due to their breast size. Candidates should have good overall health and realistic expectations about the outcomes.

How is the procedure performed?

During breast reduction surgery, your plastic surgeon will make incisions, remove excess breast tissue, and reposition the nipple-areola complex. The specific surgical technique may vary depending on your anatomy and desired results. Some common methods include the anchor or inverted T incision, vertical incision, or liposuction-assisted breast reduction.

What are the potential risks and complications?

Like any surgical procedure, breast reduction carries certain risks, which can include infection, scarring, changes in nipple sensation, asymmetry, and complications related to anesthesia. However, these risks are low, and our plastic surgeons take steps to minimize them.

Will there be visible scars after breast reduction?

Scarring is inevitable, but our plastic surgeons aim to minimize their appearance. Incisions are typically placed to be as inconspicuous as possible, and they tend to fade over time. Scar management techniques can help reduce their visibility.

Can breast reduction affect breastfeeding and nipple sensation?

In some cases, breast reduction surgery may impact the ability to breastfeed and nipple sensation. Discuss your intentions regarding breastfeeding with your surgeon before the procedure to assess the potential impact and explore suitable options.

Are the results of breast reduction permanent?

The results of breast reduction are generally long-lasting, but factors such as aging, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can affect breast size and shape over time. Maintaining a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle can help preserve the results.
