Breast reduction


Unnaturally large breasts carry a risk of health risks. Heavy breasts may excessively burden the spine and back. The weight of the breast gland also deforms the shape of the chest and the bust, which is why a surgery reducing the breasts, in other words called breast reduction (removal of part of the breast gland and breast modeling) leads to improving the physical and mental comfort.

The patient’s good physical and mental state is the most important, as well as having clear expectations about the result of the breast reduction procedure and knowing the final breast size after surgery.

Women of different ages are interested in the procedure. Girls up to 20 years of age are not recommended to perform the procedure because the breast is expected to continue to grow and another operation would be needed after some time. Persons who have suffered from excessive breast sensitivity at normal estrogen levels and who at age of 20 already have problems with excessive breast size may qualify for surgery despite their young age. However, in these cases, you need to count on possible reoperation (another procedure).


Breast reduction is about removing the excessive amount of breast tissue.

The cut is done around the nipple, and it goes vertically down the breast and horizontally along the skin fold under the breast. The cut resembles the shape of a reversed anchor. Next, removal of excessive tissue is performed and the breasts are modelled.

The most important part of the procedure is the transfer of the complex nipple – areola to the right place. In the first days after surgery, it is important to consider that the breasts may be swollen, hematomas may also occur, but they should disappear soon. Some edema may persist for several weeks.


The effect of the breast reduction procedure is usually permanent. However, it is not possible to influence the natural aging process or gravity, which can lead to slight descent of breasts. In order to obtain and maintain the best effects, please follow the doctor’s instructions.
