Breast reduction is a surgical procedure to correct excessive size and sometimes asymmetry of the breasts. In addition to psychological distress and limitations in physical activity and sports, overly large breasts often cause long-term pain as well. They put immense strain on the spine, with pain often radiating to the neck, shoulders and arms.
Breast reduction often brings clients great physical and mental relief. While reducing the volume of breast tissue, the surgeon also improves the shape and position of the breasts, performing a breast lift. A single procedure thus gives you smaller, better shaped and firmer breasts. In most cases the surgeon also reduces the size of the areola.
Many aesthetic medicine clinics offer breast reduction. The important thing, however, is finding a surgeon who specializes in breast reduction or performs this procedure regularly and achieves excellent results. Our job is to choose a top surgeon for you with the best chance of achieving your desired results without complications.

For two weeks before the operation avoid aspirin and other blood thinners. Discontinue hormonal contraception at least three weeks before the operation. Minimise alcohol consumption and smoking for a few days before the procedure. Ideally you should stop smoking completely. If you are over 40, please go for a mammogram or ultrasound.
Breast reduction takes place under general anaesthesia and requires a one or two-day stay at the clinic. The anaesthesiologist remains present during the entire procedure. The surgeon makes the breast lift incision based on the nature of the procedure and achieves the desired reduction in volume by removing fat tissue. Most patients also agree on a reduction in areola size as well. You can take a sedative before the procedure begins, if you wish.
You may experience mild pain in the first few days, which can be easily managed with medication for pain relief. Keep to strict bed rest for the first week; you can return to work after two or three weeks depending on the type of work involved. You will need to wear a special wire-free compression bra for two weeks.

The risk of complications arising during or after the procedure is very low. Choosing the right surgeon with our help is the best thing you can do to get excellent results. Still, no surgeon in the world can guarantee no complications will ever occur. Taking out insurance on an operation is a logical step, and more and more patients today are choosing to insure their aesthetic operation. We will be glad to help you with that as well. Just say the word.

This procedure is not recommended for girls under the age of 18, as their breasts may not be finished growing and re-operation may be necessary. There is no upper age limit, however, so it would come down to the patient’s overall health.
Breast reduction takes two to three hours and requires general anaesthesia as well as avoiding physical activity for at least two weeks. The surgeon usually makes an incision in the shape of an anchor, i.e. around the areola, down to the crease under the breast, and horizontally along the crease. Next the surgeon removes excess tissue and tightens the skin on the breast. Breast reduction involves breast lift at the same time.
In most cases breast reduction offers permanent results. In some cases the breasts may begin sagging somewhat over time. It is important to remember, however, that we cannot stop the ageing process entirely and physical changes may appear after some time. Following all the surgeon’s recommendations, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and genetics are the best factors involved in making sure you heal well, get the results you want and have them last as long as possible.
