About the breast reduction procedure
Although most women want large and voluptuous breasts, for some patients, too large breasts create discomfort. Whether we are talking about women who practice a performance sport or women who are complexed by the dimensions and bulky appearance. In this case, they can resort to the breast reduction procedure.
The intervention is exclusively addressed to women who want a smaller bust, which does not create discomfort or strong complexes. The procedure is surgical, with permanent results and is performed under total anesthesia.
How is the breast reduction procedure performed?
The surgical intervention involves the removal of excess fat, breast tissue and skin. The procedure aims to create smaller, lighter and firmer breasts.
The breast reduction procedure will also reduce the size of the areola, and the drooping breasts will take on a more natural shape. At the same time, the mammoplasty operation corrects and repositions the breast tissue in an appropriate position.
Before the procedure, the patient will perform a thorough check-up, during which the doctor will be able to recommend the right intervention and operative technique.
Since breast reduction is a surgical procedure, you should know that there will be a recovery period after the surgery.
This will generally be between 4 and 5 weeks.
Because the breast reduction procedure involves the removal of excess fat, glands and skin, results can be seen quickly. But immediately after the operation, the area is inflamed, so we are not talking about the final effect, so early.
In the period after the breast reduction intervention, it will be necessary to come for a check-up, according to medical recommendations. This way we will make sure that everything goes as it should.
The rules after mammoplasty intervention
Try to sleep on your back to avoid possible discomfort.
For 1 month after the operation, we recommend you to wear the elastic bustier recommended by the doctor.
Avoid driving and actions that will require your chest and hand muscles.
Do not lift heavy objects and give up sports during the recovery period.

Is the breast reduction procedure reversible?
No, breast reduction surgery or mammoplasty is not reversible, but we can find solutions for all our patients’ wishes. If, over time, the patient wants to increase her bust, she can come and talk to the specialist, who can recommend the right option for her.
Does the intervention affect the tissue? Is there any danger to patients?
As with any surgery there may be risks. That is why it is very important to choose your doctor carefully. In the case of breast reduction surgery, the doctor will extract the excess tissue to give the breasts a smaller appearance. If all medical protocols are followed, the patient is not at risk and the tissue will not be affected.
