Breast Reduction

Breast reduction, a popular procedure in aesthetic skin care involving the downsizing of oversized breasts for comfort and proportions.

Understanding Breast Reduction

Breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at reducing the size and weight of large, heavy breasts. The aim is to create smaller, lighter, and firmer breasts that are proportionate with the rest of the body. This procedure often relieves physical discomfort and can improve self-esteem.

Many women with large breasts suffer from both physical and emotional issues stemming from their breast size. Problems like back pain, neck pain, skin irritation beneath the breasts, poor posture due to the weight of the breasts and even psychological stress are common amongst these women. A Breast Reduction surgery might be a suitable solution.

The Procedure

The exact technique used during breast reduction can vary but generally involves removal of excess fat, glandular tissue and skin. The surgeon will also reshape the remaining breast tissue to achieve improved breast shape while minimizing scarring. Depending on your personal situation and surgeon’s advice you may have liposuction as part of your breast reduction surgery.

Benefits of Breast Reduction

There are numerous benefits associated with this procedure that extend beyond an enhanced appearance. These include:

  1. Increased Physical Comfort: Women who have undergone breast reduction often experience relief from physical symptoms caused by excessive weight.
  2. Broader Range Of Fashion Choices: Many women find shopping for clothing much easier after a breast reduction.
  3. Improved Confidence And Self-esteem
  4. Enhanced Ability To Participate In Physical Activities

Risks Involved

As with any major surgery, breast reduction surgery has risks and potential complications. These may include bleeding, infection, reactions to anesthesia, and rare changes in nipple or breast sensation. Your surgeon will discuss these with you during your consultation.


Recovery from breast reduction surgery varies for each individual but typically involves several weeks of rest and reduced movement to allow the body to heal. Patients are typically able to return to work within 2 weeks post-operation.

Making a Decision

Breast reduction is a personal decision that should be made after careful consideration and consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon. It's crucial to have realistic expectations about what the procedure can achieve and understand its limitations.

It's also important to remember that although the benefits can be significant, it is still major surgery with its own risks and recovery time. You must weigh all these factors carefully before deciding on this procedure.
