Breast Reduction

Service Description

Breast reduction is a surgery used to reduce the size of the breast by removing excess glandular tissue and skin, providing an aesthetic harmony in size, shape and position.

This surgery is indicated in cases of very large breasts, which over time have ptosis (sagging breasts), often causing poor posture and back pain.

Are you a good candidate for a breast reduction?

Women who seek breast reduction often have had children, are overweight, have a predisposition for large, disproportionate breasts, or are sensitive to estrogen. Big breasts often run in a family, inherited from mothers and grandmothers.

Following are some common reasons why you may want to consider breast reduction:

  • You have backaches, neck aches, or skin irritation under your breasts.
  • You have difficulty breathing and notice grooves in your shoulders from your bra straps.
  • You have poor posture or numbness in parts of your breasts and upper chest from excessive breast weight.
  • You find it nearly impossible to buy dresses and blouses and difficult to find tops that fit.
  • You are very unhappy with your appearance because of your breast size.
  • You are in good health with no active diseases or pre-existing medical conditions.
  • You have realistic expectations of the outcome of your surgery. You must be able to discuss what you want with your plastic surgeon so that you can reach an understanding of what can realistically be achieved.
  • Your skin has adequate elasticity, so it can resume its former tightness following surgery.
  • You are mentally and emotionally stable. Breast reduction requires patience and stability to deal with the healing period.
  • You are old enough so that your breast development has stopped.
  • You have finished having children and breast-feeding, because this can have significant and unpredictable effects on the size and shape of your breasts. Nevertheless, many women decide to undergo breast reduction before having children and feel that they can address any subsequent changes later. If you plan to breast-feed in the future, you should discuss this with your plastic surgeon

A history of irregular mammograms, undiagnosed lumps or other types of masses, severe obesity, diabetes, wound healing disorders, current breast-feeding, smoking, clotting disorders or a family history of them, and heart or circulatory disorders are all contraindications for breast reduction.

If you are in good general health and have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
