Full information of what you should do
before and after the procedure
Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty, removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a proportioned breast size for your body. Breast reduction surgery can also help to alleviate the physical discomfort associated with large breasts. Breast reduction surgery may be a good option for you if you experience any of the following.
Breast reduction surgery involves removal of excess skin, fat and glandular tissue through incisions on your breasts. Excess fat may also be removed through liposuction along with various excision techniques .If your breast size is due primarily to fatty tissue and excess skin is not an issue, liposuction alone may be used as the key technique for breast reduction.
Techniques for reduction mammoplasty include:
1:Vertical mammoplasty or “short scar” breast reduction:
The short scar procedure uses an incision that circles the nipple/areola area and extends down vertically below the breast. This approach avoids making a horizontal incision beneath the breast, reducing the total length of scarring by 50 percent, offering a superior cosmetic result, and a rounder, more natural outcome. The best candidates for the short scar procedure are women who have moderately large breasts. Women with massive breasts are better candidates for the traditional reduction procedure.
2: Traditional reduction procedures.
These procedures involve an inverted T or anchor-shaped incision that extends vertically down the middle of the breast and horizontally along the underside of the breast, or a keyhole or racquet-shaped pattern with an incision around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease. This type of breast reduction procedure elevates the nipple to a more normal location, reduces volume and improves contour while usually preserving breast sensation.
