Back pain, neck pain and fatigue can result from having too large breasts.
Unlike a breast lift, the main goal of this intervention is to alleviate the functional symptoms.
A breast reduction is performed via an anchor-shaped incision (circular incision around the areola, vertical incision on the chest and an incision below the breast crease) a part of the mammary gland is removed, the mammary gland is reshaped and the skin over it is redraped.
This procedure is done under general anaesthesia, takes two to three hours to perform and a hospitalization of two to three days is required.
During your consultation your surgeon will discuss with you the options on the desired volume after the reduction and possible incisions. He will also discuss with you the possible discomforts and complications.
