Breast reduction or Mammoplasty

Breast reduction is a way to balance the body proportions, minimize physical ailments and improve the psychological comfort of a woman. It consists in removing the excess glandular tissue of the breast and skin in order to achieve the desired cup size. In addition, during the operation, the shape of the breasts are modeled so that they have the best aesthetic effect. Depending on the method of breast reduction, the incision and scar occur around the areola and vertically from the areola to the furrow under the breast or around the areola, vertically and in the fold.


Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces the size and volume of the breasts by removing excess breast tissue, fat, and skin. The procedure is typically performed on women with large or heavy breasts who experience physical discomfort such as back, neck, or shoulder pain, or who have difficulty finding clothes that fit properly.


During the procedure, the surgeon will make incisions in the breast tissue and remove excess tissue and fat. The nipple and areola may also be repositioned to a higher position on the breast. The remaining breast tissue is then reshaped and the incisions are closed with sutures.


The recovery process after breast reduction surgery can take several weeks, during which time patients may experience some pain, swelling, and bruising. They may need to wear a supportive bra or compression garment during the healing process.


Breast reduction surgery can have several benefits, including improved physical comfort, increased mobility, and improved self-confidence and body image. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are risks and potential complications associated with breast reduction surgery, including bleeding, infection, scarring, changes in nipple sensation, and problems with breast-feeding.


It is important to discuss the risks and benefits of breast reduction surgery with a qualified and experienced surgeon to determine whether the procedure is right for you. The cost of breast reduction surgery can also vary depending on the location of the surgery, the surgeon's fees, and other factors, and may or may not be covered by insurance depending on the reason for the surgery.
