Breast reduction surgery is often used in women with large, heavy breasts who experience significant discomfort including neck pain, back pain numbness or weakness due to the weight of the breasts. Breast reduction corrects this problem by removing excess skin, removing excess glandular and fatty tissue and remodeling the breast by lifting the position of the nipple areola complex.
Depending on the heaviness and sagging of the breasts, different surgical techniques are used in breast reduction surgery, in cases of moderate heavy breasts Dr Fakin Ocean Clinic Madrid uses a vertical cut from the areola down to the breast fold and one around the areola (Lejour’s Technique), in cases of very heavy breast, a large breast mound or extreme sagging an Inverse T-Cut (Anchor) Incision may be indicated.
Dr Fakin will discuss your case with you and recommend the technique which fits best to your individual needs. The operation takes between 3-4 hours, depending on the technique, and can be performed under twilight sedation combined with local anesthesia or general anesthesia.
Breasts that are excessively large in proportion to body size are a frequent cause of back and neck pain as well as grooves or irritation on the shoulders from bra straps. Additionally, sleep and participation in certain activities may be affected, and the likelihood of rashes and infections in the folds underneath the breasts increases. Fortunately, an operation known as reduction mammaplasty or simply, breast reduction, achieves good results in alleviating these problems. A reduction removes extra breast tissue to achieve a healthier, more comfortable size and reshapes the breasts, making them firmer and lifting them to a more youthful position. An additional benefit is that uneven breasts can be made more even.Breast reduction PDF

The scars will be around the nipple, vertically down from the nipple to the breast crease, and , if a large amount of tissue needs to be removed, along the breast crease itself.
It depends on the extent of the surgery, but loss of sensation is rarely permanent.
At Ocean Clinic Madrid the surgery takes between 2-4 hours, depending how exstensive the reduction is.
During this type of surgery the nipples are moved to a new position, so breast feeding is not always possible afterwards.
