Breast reduction

Women who have been naturally endowed with very large breasts may experience various problems associated with excessive weight. These typically include: constant neck and back pain, persistent skin changes, chafing under the breasts, and even spinal deformities. Bra straps may cause indentations due to constant pressure in the shoulder area.

For these women, breast reduction surgeries are performed, involving the removal of part of the breast gland along with the skin and subcutaneous tissue to achieve smaller, lighter, and more shapely breasts that are proportional to the rest of the body. The areola envelope is also reduced.

These surgeries are usually performed more for functional than cosmetic reasons in mature women who are fully aware and have realistic expectations regarding the outcome.

Tissue gland resection is performed, and any excess skin is removed. Another indication for the procedure may be existing breast asymmetry. The procedure is carried out under general anesthesia. After the procedure, the patient stays in the clinic until the next day. Drains are removed, and the patient returns home.

Stitches are removed after 7 days. After the surgery, it is advisable to wear a bra to immobilize the breasts until they are fully healed.


  • tests: blood type, morphology, blood coagulation system, ESR, blood glucose, electrolyte panel, EKG, chest X-ray,
  • 6-hour fasting before the procedure (no eating or drinking),
  • good general health.

Risks associated with breast reduction surgery may include:

Infection: There is a risk of infection at the surgical site, which may require treatment with antibiotics or even additional surgical intervention.

Healing complications: Improper healing of wounds may lead to scarring or other aesthetic issues.

Changes in sensitivity: After surgery, there may be a decrease or increase in nipple sensitivity.

Changes in breast shape: There is a risk that the shape of the breasts may change after surgery, which may require additional corrective procedures.

Breastfeeding issues: Breast reduction surgery may make breastfeeding difficult or impossible in the future.

Hormonal changes: Reducing breast size may affect the hormonal balance of the body.

Allergic reactions: Allergic reactions to materials used during surgery are possible.

Decreased or loss of sexual pleasure: Some women report decreased ability to experience sexual pleasure after breast reduction surgery.

Surgical failures: In some cases, surgery may not produce the desired results, necessitating additional surgical intervention.

Psychological disorders: Some women may experience psychological disorders such as depression or dissatisfaction with the results of the surgery.

It is important to thoroughly discuss the potential risks and benefits of breast reduction surgery with a plastic surgeon before making a decision.
