Breast Reduction

General description

Plastic surgery of this type is an option for women who have big and/or hanging breasts. Over time, bras can leave marks in women’s shoulders that can cause health problems ranging from pain in the back and neck, skin irritation or even deformities in bones and respiratory problems. Besides, big breasts can make a woman feel uncomfortable about herself, something that could negatively affect her sense of security and selfworth.

Reduction mammoplasty is not a simple surgical procedure, nevertheless, risks are minimized if a qualified plastic surgeon performs the surgery.

Technical description
Procedure – Like in any other type of surgical intervention, there is the risk of complications; they, however, can be reduced if you carefully follow your physician’s instructions both before and after surgery.

Breast reduction surgery leaves visible scars that can be hidden with the bra (smokers might have bigger scars). Some women also experience less sensibility in the nipples, but this will return to normal in a few weeks.

In your initial consultation you must be honest with your physician and go over your expectations with him. Your surgeon will evaluate your health, measure your breasts and decide which surgical procedure is best for you based on your age, breast size and shape and skin type. Your physician must carefully explain the procedure, possible risks, limitations, scars and new position of the nipple.  

You also have to know the type of anesthesia required, the facilities the hospital has and costs. 

The surgeon could request a mammography before surgery. He will advise you on food, beverages, cigarettes and whether you can take some vitamins or medication.



Total cost will vary according to individual needs.
