Breast Reduction

Suitable for patients with large breast volume, its purpose is not only aesthetic, but often restorative.

Some patients experience long-term back pain and rashes in the submammary folds. Poor posture can develop into severe spinal problems.

The technique is performed by removing excess skin and internal breast tissue (glandular and fatty).

As the areolas are also in a position lower than the normal anatomical one, they need to be repositioned by means of reduction and ascension flaps.

The usual scars are: around the areolas, along the submammary fold and vertically between the lower part of the areola and the submammary fold (in an inverted T or L shape, when possible).

Formats and techniques

It’s important to note that the breasts usually have a more pendulous appearance. If you want a more projected neck (upper part), a silicone implant may be more suitable.

Breasts with more glandular tissue are firmer, while breasts with more fat tend to sag sooner. Therefore, the option of draining most of the tissue and replacing it with an implant may be the most suitable option.

It is important to have the surgery when your weight is more compatible with your height, because if you lose weight after the procedure, sagging skin may occur.
