Breast reduction is recommended for women who are suffering back and shoulder pain, have to limit their physical activity or experience psychological and emotional discomfort due to large breasts. The aim of the procedure is to remove excess fat and glandular tissue and change the shape of the breast so that it better matches body proportions. Breast reduction is always performed together with a breast lift, so the location of the nipple and areola complex changes. The size of the areola can be also reduced at the patient’s request.
The patient is advised to wear a special bra for a few weeks after the procedure. Usually patients return to work within 10-14 days. More intense physical activity should be avoided for at least several weeks. The final cosmetic result will be visible after several months.
