“I always felt my breasts were too large for my petite body. I decided to do something about them once I turned 21 because that is when I also started to get back pain from it. I was concerned about breast cancer however the scans showed everything normal. Even then, I decided to get a cosmetic surgery to get a breast reduction procedure done. I selected Aesthetics Medispa after my sister advised me. I underwent the breast reduction surgery last month and feel renewed. Thank you Aesthetics Medispa for the most comfortable and successful breast reduction surgery.”
Breast Reduction (also known as Reduction Mammaplasty) is a procedure that removes excess fat, glandular tissue and skin to make your breasts smaller, firmer, and proportionate to your body. It helps to reduce the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.
Women with large, heavy breasts may experience several health concerns related to this problem including back and neck pain, breast pain and rashes under the breast. The added weight of large breasts may exacerbate the symptoms for women with arthritis or spinal problems. Some women are bothered by the psychological embarrassment of large breasts, finding it uncomfortable to engage in physical activity or experiencing difficulty in finding clothes that fit.
In the long term, large breasts can lead to increased sagging (ptosis) and as a result of which a combination of large breasts and ptosis is present in many women. Women who are very self conscious of their large breasts, tend to develop a slouch in their posture, droop in their shoulders and chronic backache. Bra straps tend to dig into their shoulders causing deep indentation.
If you have any of these symptoms, breast reduction surgery may be right for you. It can make a dramatic change in your appearance and your outlook. It is recognized worldwide that women who have had breast reduction are some of the most satisfied and grateful patients. They find new enjoyment in sports, exercise, dance and even walking!

BREAST REDUCTION PROCEDURE
Breast reduction is usually done under general anaesthesia. There are many ways to do a breast reduction. The procedure essentially consists of excising a wedge of breast gland with the overlying skin. While doing so the nipple is preserved on a bridge of tissue, which provides it with blood supply, and then translocated to a new higher position. The breast and skin is closed, giving it a smaller and much nicer shape.
The final scar will be around the areola and extend vertically down to the inframammary fold in the vertical scar technique of breast reduction. There will be an additional transverse scar in the inframammary fold, if the keyhole pattern (inferior pedicle technique) is used.
Our surgeon at Aesthetics Medispa will be able to guide you about the most suitable technique for you.
RISKS AND COMPLICATIONS
Breast reduction is a refined surgical procedure and is done quite routinely. Like any surgical procedure there are potential risks and complications that our surgeon at Aesthetics Medispa will explain in detail.
Some of the potential risks include:
- Accumulation of blood (hematoma), infection and poor healing at the site of suturing.
- Decreased sensation at the nipple.
- Decreased blood supply at the nipple, which may lead to partial or total necrosis of the nipple. This may need secondary reconstruction. This is very rare. The risk is increased in smokers and diabetics. Hence, women are advised to stop smoking at least two weeks prior to surgery.
- The ability to breast feed after reduction is unpredictable. It depends on the extent of reduction and type of technique used. This is best discussed with our surgeon at Aesthetics Medispa.
The incidence of these risks range from five to ten percent, and our surgeon will explain the treatment if they occur.
