Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery, also known as mammaplasty, mammoplasty or mastoplasty, removes excess breast tissue to reduce breast size. Increasingly popular in recent years, breast reduction surgery can help relieve back pain and make it easier to find well-fitting clothes.

Breast reduction surgery may be right for you if:

  • You have overly large breasts which cause you discomfort on a daily basis.
  • Your breasts increased considerably in size during or after pregnancy or breastfeeding.

The Breast Reduction Procedure

Before proceeding with your operation, you’ll meet with a surgeon to discuss your specific needs. Your surgeon will examine your breasts and talk about various options for reduction. Sometimes, surgeons use liposuction to help extract fat from the breasts before performing open surgery. Several approaches to breast reduction exist:

  • Excess skin and tissue are taken from the area around your areola.
  • Excess skin and tissue are taken from a keyhole-shaped area around and below your areola.
  • Excess skin and tissue are taken from a T-shaped area around and below your areola, and also horizontally along the fold in your breast.

Step 1

The Breast Reduction operation involves removal of excess breast and skin tissue to reduce the overall size of the breast and also reshaping of the breast itself and repositioning of the nipple to create a higher bustline.

Step 2

This diagram shows the position of the scar after the operation. The breasts are smaller and the nipples are higher.

 

After your surgeon finishes reshaping your breast, the remaining skin is tightened and carefully sutured. Incision lines may be visible afterward, but they usually fade considerably over time.

The Recovery Process

After breast reduction, most people need to take some time off work to heal. Quite often, you’ll be advised to wear a post-operative bra or chest strap for the first few weeks. Your surgeon will share post-operative instructions with you, which can help you recover more easily.

Important Questions About Breast Reduction

Am I being vain wanting a breast reduction?

Looking after our appearance is not a vanity. You should feel proud of yourself for having the courage to want to change something that you feel unhappy with, especially if large breasts are causing back or shoulder pain, issues with confidence or even problems in selecting clothes.

How much smaller can my breasts be reduced?

Each individual breast reduction case is different, your surgeon will examine you and discuss the achievable reduction in size.

Who is a good candidate for breast reduction surgery?

A breast reduction is usually performed for physical relief helping the patient reduce the discomfort and embarrassment caused by very large or saggy breasts rather than for purely cosmetic reasons.

What will I look like after this form of cosmetic surgery?

All cosmetic surgery is associated with bruising, so you should expect this for 7-10 days after your breast reduction. Some patients remain bruised for longer and in rare cases for up to a month or more. You may start to see the results quickly but you will not see the final benefits of your surgery for many months.

Can you treat ‘man boobs’?

Yes, but there is a separate procedure for male breast reduction, or gynaecomastia. This can produce a sleek, trim physique by removing the excess fat and skin from the chest area, relieving the distress and embarrassment that this condition can cause.
