Breast Reduction

Reduction Mammaplasty

A breast reduction removes excess breast tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and alleviate discomfort

INTRODUCTION

What is breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size more in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with excessively large breasts (macromastia)
 

Disproportionately large breasts can cause both physical and emotional distress for patients. Patients with macromastia may experience physical discomfort resulting from the weight of their breasts. The resulting pain can make it challenging for some patients to perform common physical activities. Along with the physical ailments of macromastia, some patients may suffer from emotional distress or more significant mental health problems as a result of their large breasts

Although breast reduction is often performed to address medical issues, patients who do not have the symptoms of macromastia but are unhappy with the size of their breasts can still pursue breast reduction as an aesthetic procedure. Patients choosing to undergo breast reduction surgery for cosmetic reasons may cite any number of factors, including social stigmas and wardrobe concerns

Who is a good candidate for
breast reduction surgery?

Overly large breasts can cause health and emotional problems. In addition to self-image issues, you may also experience physical pain and discomfort. The weight of excess breast tissue can impair your ability to lead an active life. The emotional discomfort and self-consciousness often associated with having large pendulous breasts can be as important an issue as the physical discomfort and pain
 

You may be a candidate for breast reduction surgery if:
 

  • You are physically healthy

  • You have realistic expectations

  • You don't smoke

  • You are bothered by feeling that your breasts are too large

  • You have breasts that limit your physical activity

  • You experience back, neck and shoulder pain caused by the weight of your breasts

  • You have shoulder indentations from bra straps

  • You have skin irritation beneath the breast crease

Your Health & Safety


Before undergoing surgery requiring sedation or general anesthesia, a full medical history including diagnostic tests is recommended. Part of this medical history requires that you provide candid answers to questions about your general state of health, including:
 

  • A full disclosure of health history including any illness, prior surgery of any kind and complications from prior surgery

  • All types of allergies and any reaction to prior anesthesia

  • Current medications, the use of vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drugs

  • The use of oral contraceptives by women

Before surgery, you must follow all of your plastic surgeon's instructions. This may include:

  • Cessation of smoking

  • Stop taking certain types of medications that may increase your risk of abnormal bleeding

On the day of surgery, you may be asked to:

  • Avoid eating or drinking anything within a defined time period prior to surgery

Follow all postoperative instructions carefully, including cleansing and at-home treatment regimens, and avoid sun exposure. Your cooperation will influence the outcome of your surgery.
