Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction
Madrid | Zurich

Breast Reduction is considered a therapeutic intervention for women who suffer discomfort and pain related to breast hypertrophy. Many patients of all ages may suffer back and neck pain, skin irritation, redness and itching among other problems due to this condition.

These symptoms fully abate after a breast reduction intervention has been carried out. This surgery not only aims to diminishing the breast size, but also to enhance its contour and symmetry. Hence improving our patients’ life quality, allowing them to engage in painless fitness activities and increase their self-esteem.

Breast Reduction: surgical techniques and scars

There are many innovative techniques to reduce the breast size. The choice of the most appropriate is related to the breast anatomy and size, degree of dermis flaccidity, nipple location, and, most importantly, the patient’s wish. A complementary liposuction of the surrounding area is considered an essential part of the intervention. It implies reshaping adjacent areas such as the armpit, back and lateral chest, thus achieving a harmonious and balanced look.

  • Mild breast hypertrophy (volume resection inferior to 350g): this technique is closely related to breast lift surgical procedures, optimising the breast and nipple shape while reducing its size. The scar location will depend on these circumstances, while always trying to minimise them as much as possible
  • Moderate breast hypertrophy (volume resection between 350g and 1000g approx.): in most of these cases we use the Canadian method known as Hall-Findlay, being an evolution of the most common reduction technique described by Lejour. Scars are almost invisible with a lollipop shape, in some cases a small, inverted T-shape incision might be needed
  • Unusually big breasts, gigantomastia (volume resection over 1000g): scars located in the submammary fold are longer, with an inverted T-shape. In some cases, it is essential to use a free nipple graft procedure

Postoperative care after a Breast Reduction

At our clinics, we are fully committed to guiding and walking alongside our patients during the postoperative process.

In all cases we temporary anaesthetize the local sensitive nerves, highly reducing any postoperative discomfort. Stitches are almost always dissolvable, making their removal unnecessary.

We provide our patients with a special bra after surgery, which they will need to wear for 4-6 weeks. During which time it is highly recommendable not to lift anything heavier than 5kg and to avoid any fitness practice that involves weightlifting.

Additional alternatives to a Breast Reduction procedure

A breast lift combined with reduction techniques is a possible alternative. If the patient wishes a minimal reduction without having to raise the nipple, a liposuction can be performed.
