Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed worldwide and provides the patient with a more youthful, lifted breast with improved shape. After a , many women report dramatically improved self-confidence and a sense of femininity.

Women of all ages including teenagers, women after childbearing and post-menopausal women have all sought breast reduction in order to relieve the following factors;

  • Inability to fit into normal size clothes
  • Neck, should, back and breast pain that are related to the weight and traction effect of the breasts
  • Post lactation ptosis (sagging)
  • Irritation of infection in the breast crease
  • Difficulty with exercise or any physical activity due to heavy breasts

The breast reduction technique used will vary depending on the patients anatomy and individual desires.  There are two common skin design patterns for breast reduction;

  • Short scar – Vertical (lollipop) incision
  • Inverted T Shape (anchor) incision

Breast reduction surgery can take up to six months to reach its final shape. Breast reduction scars will be noticeable at first, but they will fade over time. Patients should expect discomfort and swelling of the breasts for several weeks, although patients usually return to almost normal activity within two weeks. Patients should plan to avoid activities which require raising of the arms above the chest for 10 days after surgery. Patients can usually return to work within 1-2 weeks post-surgery.
