Breast reduction involves surgery to harmonise the bust, shaping and decreasing the volume of the breasts by removing fat, breast tissue and skin, yielding highly beneficial results, for health and improved quality of life.
The objective of this procedure is to reduce the size of the breasts, making them smaller, lighter and firmer in those cases in which their volume and weight compromise the patient’s health and quality of life. In this way the discomfort that tends to accompany this condition, such as neck pain and back pain, irritation under the skin of the breasts, and even breathing difficulties, are resolved.
Type of procedure
Surgery under general and nerve block anaesthesia, guided by high-resolution ultrasound to minimise postoperative pain.
1 to 2 weeks.
A post-surgery bra is worn.
A 2-hour procedure.
Requires an overnight stay.
Drainage is performed and bandages are placed.
Breast reduction can solve major health problems resulting from excessive breast weight, size and volume. With an enhanced and well-proportioned bust, you’ll feel the way you always wanted to. You will gain greater confidence, self-assuredness, self-esteem and, above all, quality of life.
Are you the ideal candidate?
If you’re a woman concerned about the excessive size of her chest, and are seeking to improve your health and quality of life, you are the ideal candidate for a breast reduction procedure.
We always perform breast reduction procedures in our operating rooms. Patients normally stay in the hospital the night after surgery, leaving the facility the next day. The surgery usually lasts 2 hours and can be performed under general anaesthesia.
Back to normal
Most of our patients who undergo breast augmentation surgery feel fine in 2 days and, depending on their regular activities, are able to return to work soon.
Breast reduction procedures yield excellent results. Success is assured.
After surgery, and especially during the first 24-48 hours, it is normal for you to feel tired. Once you have overcome this feeling, depending on your activity levels, you can almost resume a regular routine. The stitches are removed after 7-14 days, and the bandages are replaced by a special bra.
Every year we successfully perform reduction mammoplasty procedures. Patients can rely on our qualified plastic surgeons. Complications are rare and tend to be minor. Breast reduction is a safe technique. However, as is the case with any surgery, there is always the possibility of complications. To minimise this risk, especially if you are a smoker, it is imperative that you carefully follow our plastic surgeons’ instructions, both before and after surgery.
