Reduce the size of your breasts, and regain comfort and health!
Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is the reshaping of oversized breasts. By removing the excess of fat, the glandular tissue and skin this surgical procedure can achieve a breast size in proportion with the body and alleviate the discomfort or embarrassment associated with a breast which is too great.
Large breasts can cause physical pain, but also psychological distress or depression. A more proportionate chest and firm breasts will improve health, self confidence and facilitate the practice of sports and physical activities.
The procedure: The surgical procedure lasts for about 3 hours or more depending on the amount of breast tissue to be removed. The technique used by the surgeon also vary depending on the amount of tissue to be removed.
There are mainly 3 techniques:
- “Anchor” incision: This technique is the most traditional technique and is recommended when a fair amount of tissue needs to be removed. The incision goes around the nipple, straight down to the crease of the breast and then around up for a few centimetres in the crease of the breast.
- “Lollilop” or “Keyhole” incision: This technique is used for cases of moderate reduction. The incision goes around the nipple and straight down to the crease of the breast.
- “Donut” Lift: This technique is used for mild reduction. The incision just goes around the nipple, making the scar less visible.
A breast reduction surgery through breast liposuction alone is scarless and can be considered in mild cases, if the patient accept some degree of sagging. However patients with fibrous tissue and minimal fat in their breasts are not good candidates with a breast liposuction.
The recovery process: Patients will have to spend two nights at the clinic after a standard breast reduction surgery. You may feel some discomfort after surgery but this can be controlled with medication. Patients are able to return to work after 2 weeks and resume light activities. Lifting or strenuous work should be avoided for at least a month. The results will be visible one month after surgery.
