Breast Reduction, Mammoplasty

The Breast Reduction or Reduction Mammoplasty is a surgical procedure to reduce the size of large, pendulous breast. Reduction Mammoplasty will create smaller, more youthful and healthy appearing breasts.

Women frequently choose breast reduction because of severe back, neck and shoulder aches created by the large size of their breasts also the feeling that they are severely limited in what clothing they feel they can wear. The physical discomfort that is caused by very heavy, large breasts can limit participation in certain activities or exercise, In addition, breasts that are out of proportion to a women’s body can be a source of embarrassment and self-consciousness.

Breast reduction can be performed at any age on a healthy woman, but it is usually recommended to wait until the breasts are fully developed. Some women decide to wait to have the surgery until their childbearing is over since childbirth and breastfeeding can cause unpredictable changes to the breasts and breast-feeding may not be possible after breast reduction surgery.

The Reduction / Mammoplasty Procedure

There are several different techniques and incisions that can be used to reduce the breasts. The most common procedure involves an anchor-shaped incision that circles the areola, extends downward, and follows the natural curve of the crease beneath the breast. This is the most common style being used in the US.

The surgeon removes excess glandular tissue, skin and fat, and moves the nipple and areola into their new position to match the breasts new contours. The surgeon then brings the skin from both sides of the breast down and around the areola, shaping the new contour of the breast. Liposuction may sometimes be used to remove excess fat from the armpit area.

New options for Breast Reduction/ Mammoplasty

The latest advancements in Breast Reduction surgery today have made several important advancements you should be aware of. Formally Breast Reductions and most breast lifts were done with what had been called an inverted T or anchor scar. This placed an incision around the nipple-areola, one vertically downward from there and one in the fold. This operation enhanced the shape of the breast while reducing and/or lifting it. However, some patient’s formed very visible scars following this operation that did not resolve over time. This left the patient with a better shape but with scars on her breast that were sometimes noticeable in bathing suits and lower cut tops.

In order to minimize large scars, new techniques have now been developed in the Europe and South America to limit the amount of scarring. In most cases the scar can be either limited to around the nipple-areola, or for larger breasts a short vertical scar going down from the areola. With this technique the incision under the breast has now been done away with. This is great news if you are thinking about a Breast Reduction
