BREAST REDUCTION

REDUCTION MAMMOPLASTY

There are various reasons why many women decide to have a breast reduction. However, the reasons are not only aesthetic, but also health. Excessively large breasts can be uncomfortable, limit certain activities, cause back pain and, consequently, cause complexes.

Whatever the reason, with a reduction mammoplasty, or breast reduction, we will help you feel better about yourself. The main objective of this surgery is to modify the size and shape of the breast so that it adjusts to the requirements of the patient.

The intervention consists of removing fat, glandular tissue and excess skin from each breast, reducing their volume and shape, making them firmer and more turgid. In addition, this breast surgery is usually accompanied by a mastopexy, or chest lift.

In some cases, breast reduction and elevation can be performed by combining an implant (prosthesis) with lipofilling (Lipomastopexy), thus improving aesthetic results.
