The ideal treatment for hypertrophic and heavy breasts
Big breasts are not always beautiful! It all depends on their shape and proportions in relation to your body, and when it comes to the breast, a specialised cosmetic surgeon can improve both through breast reduction, customised according to the needs of each woman. Breast reduction is an invasive procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin from the breasts, in order to form a smaller breast. The body type of each woman determines the level of breast reduction, and it is designed so as to achieve a natural result in proportion with your body.
Usually the surgery lasts about 3 hours and general anaesthesia is required. The size of the incision around the nipple is determined by breast size and shape. In addition, the site where the incision is made depends on skin elasticity and on the procedure that will be chosen for the surgery, as applicable.
During the procedure, excess accumulated fat is removed and then the nipple is repositioned higher. In certain cases, if the nipple is enlarged because of the increased breast size, its size may be reduced, so that to fit with the new smaller breasts. Following this, both volume and fat are removed from the breast gland and then the gland is supported at its new higher position. The surgery is completed with the closing of the incisions with absorbable sutures layered deep within the breast tissue to minimise any visible scars. In certain cases, during the operation it may be deemed necessary to place minor tubes to avoid hematoma formation that are removed after a couple of days, which is also the usual period the patient stays in the clinic.
Not just a cosmetic surgery
Breast reduction provides a really helpful solution for several problems that many women with big breast face, both in their daily life and in their social life. If you have one or more of the following problems, it’s the right time to consider the only solution that will free your movements and enhance your self-confidence:
- Difficulty to exercise, dress up
- Difficulty in breathing
- Problems with the spine because of the increased weight of your breasts
- Neck or back pain
- Tendency for kyphosis due to the weight
- Numbness of the hand
- Improper body posture
- Disproportionally large breast as compared to your body
- Asymmetrical breasts
- Breast sagging due to their weight
- Skin irritation and development of bacteria below the breast crease because of sweating
Success and safety of breast reduction
Overly largehealth problems and emotional distress to women. The large breast may be a cause of physical pain and discomfort. In addition, excess breast tissue weight may be a challenging issue for women, preventing them from actively participating in common daily activities.
For breast reduction surgery to be possible, a woman should meet the following requirements:
- Physically healthy
- With realistic expectations
- Avoid smoking
- Self-awareness and feel that her breasts are particularly large
- The breasts are limiting physical activities
- Feel pain in the back, neck and shoulders which is caused from the weight of her breasts
- Constantly irritated skin below the breast crease
The success and safety of the breast reduction procedure depends to a great extent on whether she is honest when describing her medical history during the initial consultation. The cosmetic surgeon will evaluate her overall health status and examine her breasts, their anatomy and skin quality, while photographs and measurements will be collected for her medical file. In addition, all possible options will be discussed with her, and a specific treatment plan will be proposed, while the procedure of the surgery and recovery stages will be also explained.
