Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery, also known as “breast reduction”, is a procedure used to remove excess fat, tissue and skin from the breasts. If you have large breasts, you could choose to undergo breast reduction surgery to relieve discomfort or achieve a breast size proportional to your body.

Breast reduction surgery may also help improve your self-esteem and self-confidence and your ability to participate in physical activities.

If you are considering breast reduction surgery, consult a certified plastic surgeon. It is important to understand what breast reduction surgery involves, such as possible risks and complications, as well as to establish realistic expectations.

Why is it done?

Breast reduction surgery is for women who have large breasts and want to solve problems like the following:

  • Chronic back, neck and shoulder pain that makes them take pain medication
  • Irritation or chronic skin rash under the breasts
  • Nerves pain
  • Limitation of activities
  • Low self-esteem related to the large size of your breasts
  • Difficulty finding suitable bras and clothes

Breast reduction surgery is usually not recommended if you:

  • Do you smoke
  • You have certain disorders such as diabetes or heart disease
  • You are very obese
  • You want to avoid having scars on your breasts
  • You can perform a breast reduction surgery at any age, in certain cases even during adolescence. But if your breasts are
  • not yet fully developed, you may need a second surgery later in life.

You may have to postpone breast reduction surgery if you have certain plans for the future, such as:

Birth. If you have not yet formed a family or if your family is not complete yet, maybe you should wait until pregnancy is not a problem. Breastfeeding may be a challenge after breast reduction surgery, although certain surgical techniques may preserve your ability to breastfeed.

Weightloss. If you are interested in losing weight by changing your diet and starting an exercise program, you may want to wait to decide if breast reduction surgery is a good option for you. Weight loss often results in changes in breast size.


Breast reduction surgery presents the same risks as any other type of major surgery: bleeding, infection and an adverse reaction to anesthesia. Other possible risks are:

  • Bruises, which are usually temporary
  • Cicatrization
  • Elimination or loss of sensation in the nipples and the skin that surrounds them (areolas)
  • Difficulty or inability to breastfeed
  • Differences in the size, shape and symmetry of the left and right sinuses surgically altered, which may need another surgery to improve its appearance

How to prepare?

It is likely that the plastic surgeon:

  • Evaluate your medical history and general health
  • Discuss your expectations of the size and appearance of the breasts after surgery
  • Provide a detailed description of the procedure and its risks and benefits, such as possible scarring and loss of sensitivity
  • Examine and measure your breasts
  • Take pictures of the breasts for your medical record
  • Explain the type of anesthesia used during surgery

Before breast reduction surgery, you may be asked to do the following:

  • Complete several laboratory tests
  • Perform an initial mammogram
  • Stop smoking for a certain time before surgery and after it
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications and herbal supplements to control bleeding during surgery
  • Ask your surgeon if you can return home the day of surgery or if you will need to spend a night in the hospital. Ask someone to take you home after surgery or when you leave the hospital.

What you can expect?

In general, breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia, either in a hospital or in a surgical center for outpatients.

During the procedure

The specific technique used to reduce breast size may vary. The procedure may comprise the following:

Surgery through incisions

Liposuction to remove excess fat accumulated in the breasts

Usually, the surgeon will do the following:

  • Make an incision around the areola and under each breast
  • Remove excess tissue, fat and skin from the breast to reduce its size
  • Reshaping the breast and repositioning both the nipple and the areola

The nipple and areola:

If your breasts are very large, it may be necessary to remove the nipple and areola, and relocate them in a higher position as a skin graft.

The surgeon will try to achieve symmetry between both breasts; however, there is likely to be some variation in the size and shape of these. It is possible that the size of the areola is also reduced. The scars of the incision may fade over time, but they will never disappear completely.

Immediately after the surgery:

  • The breasts will be protected with a gauze dressing or a bandage
  • A tube can be placed under each arm to drain excess blood or fluid
  • The surgeon may prescribe painkillers for pain and antibiotics to decrease the risk of infection

During the first days or the week after surgery:

  • Moms probably feel sensitive and hurt
  • They can also swell and bruise
  • The surgeon may recommend an elastic compression bra at the beginning to protect the breasts


  • You should limit physical activity for two to four weeks while recovering the breasts
  • The surgeon may recommend that you avoid bras with wire for one month after surgery
  • The scars usually disappear with time. You should have a follow-up visit with your surgeon to remove the points and monitor your recovery.


Successful breast reduction surgery can reduce pain in the upper back, neck, and shoulders. It is also possible to increase your ability to participate in physical activities and encourage a more positive self-image.

Even though you will see the results immediately, remember that the swelling and scars of the surgery can take months to completely disappear. In general, the final result is permanent, although the shape and size of the breasts can change due to factors such as aging and weight gain or loss.
