Breast reduction

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to
reduce the size and volume of the breasts by removing excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin. It can
alleviate physical discomfort, improve posture, and enhance overall body proportions.







Question - Answer


Who is a good candidate for breast reduction surgery?

  • Good candidates for breast reduction surgery are individuals who experience physical symptoms
    such as neck, shoulder, and back pain, bra strap grooving, skin irritation beneath the breasts, and
    difficulty finding clothing that fits properly due to overly large breasts. Candidates should be in good
    overall health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure.

How is breast reduction surgery performed?

During breast reduction surgery, incisions are made around the areola, vertically down the lower
portion of the breast, and sometimes along the inframammary fold, depending on the surgical
technique used. Excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin are removed, and the breasts are reshaped and
lifted to achieve a more proportional and aesthetically pleasing appearance.


What is the recovery process like after breast reduction surgery?

  • Recovery from breast reduction surgery involves some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can
    be managed with pain medication and proper post-operative care. Patients are typically advised to
    wear a supportive surgical bra and avoid strenuous activities for several weeks following surgery.
    Most patients can return to work and normal activities within a week or two, but full recovery may
    take several weeks to months.

What are the benefits of breast reduction surgery?

  • The primary benefits of breast reduction surgery include relief from physical symptoms such as neck,
    shoulder, and back pain, improved posture, enhanced mobility and physical activity, increased self-
    confidence and body image, and a more proportionate and balanced breast appearance.

What is the long-term outcome of breast reduction surgery?

The results of breast reduction surgery are long-lasting, although factors such as aging, weight
fluctuations, and pregnancy can affect the appearance of the breasts over time. By maintaining a
stable weight and following a healthy lifestyle, patients can help prolong the results of their breast
reduction surgery.
