Reduction Mammoplasty (Breast Reduction)
In order to decrease the volume of the breasts in women so called breast reduction operations are performed. Generally our surgeons remove an amount of skin tissue as well as breast tissue. Patients with big and heavy breast often have sever back problems and a breast reduction operation in combination with a breast lift can give them the much needed relieve. Leaving a minimal scar is possible by using a special tissue laser to make the incisions. The laser ensures that the scar will be minimum and the result will be natural. Leaving a minimal scar and to achieve symmetrical breast after the operation is the ultimate goal for the surgeon.
Techniques for reduction mammoplasty are:
Vertical mammoplasty or “short scar” breast reduction.
The short scar procedure uses an incision that circles the nipple/areola area and extends down vertically below the breast. This approach avoids making a horizontal incision beneath the breast, reducing the total length of scarring by 50 percent, offering a superior cosmetic result, and a rounder, more natural outcome. The best candidates for the short scar procedure are women who have moderately large breasts. Women with massive breasts are better candidates for the traditional reduction procedure.
Traditional reduction procedures.
These procedures involve an inverted T or anchor-shaped incision that extends vertically down the middle of the breast and horizontally along the underside of the breast, or a keyhole or racquet-shaped pattern with an incision around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease. This type of breast reduction procedure elevates the nipple to a more normal location, reduces volume and improves contour while usually preserving breast sensation.
We select the most suitable technique in order to minimize scars and yield the most aesthetic appearance.
There are more than 90,000 breast reduction operations a year. The procedure carries incredible psychological effects and most women who undergo breast reduction are very satisfied with the results. A woman undergoing breast reduction surgery emphasizes that they are much happier in their private and social lives.
