Breast reduction provides an effective solution for women who have oversized breasts, a condition known as breast hypertrophy. Breast hypertrophy typically occurs in both breasts and manifests at puberty or soon afterward. Breast reduction can also be performed on men who have unusually large breasts, such as the condition gynecomastia.
Breast reduction can reduce the size of both breasts, making them in proportion to the rest of the body, or reduce the size of just one breast to match the other in cases where patients have one oversized breast. Improved breast shape and size help to improve quality of life and confidence, for both men and women.

Before entering the operating room, the surgeon will ask you to sit upright and draw surgical markings. These markings will outline the location for the incisions later during surgery. The drawings typically take the form of an anchor encircling the areola and extending above the areola to the new location of the nipple. The markings also extend down vertically below the nipple and horizontally following the natural curve of the crease beneath your breast.
An incision is made along the surgical markings. Flaps are created on either side of the breast and the excess skin, fat and glandular tissues are removed. In most cases, the nipples are moved higher up on the breast, but remain attached to the nerves and blood vessels. In some instances, where the breasts are particularly heavy, the nipples may need to be grafted to a new location. In such cases, the nipples are separated from the underlying tissues and you will lose sensation in the nipple and areola.
After surgery, the flaps of skin are re-attached around and beneath the breast, then pulled to the front of the breast and sutured in place around the nipple. The reduction of breast tissue reduces the weight of the breast and the restructuring of the skin reshapes it.
When the procedure is finished, there are stitches around the areola and nipple area, in a vertical line extending from the nipple, and horizontally under the breast. Some surgical techniques can avoid the horizontal scar altogether. Occasionally, liposuction alone can be used to reduce breast size when only fat needs to be removed, leaving minimal scars.
After Breast Reduction surgery, pain and fatigue are normal. Oral painkillers should be sufficient to address the pain in the first few days after surgery. Sutures will typically be removed after seven days. Patients might also experience swelling, bruising, and firmness. These symptoms will subside over the next several weeks to months. As the swelling goes down, the breasts will get slightly smaller and as gravity and loss of skin elasticity do their natural work, the breasts will also descend somewhat.
Long Term Expectations
Scars are a normal result of the procedure, and although the scars will fade over time, they will never completely disappear. Breast reduction surgery may also result in the creation of certain “pleats or folds around the incisions, which will resolve over weeks to months, up to a year. It can take that long for scars to fade and for the breast tissue to soften and remodel itself.
Over the long-term, the breast tissue settles and begins to assume a more natural shape and appearance. Patients are usually pleased with the weight reduction, and find they can participate more freely in a variety of activities. Although most patients can breastfeed after a Breast Reduction, in a small number of cases is not possible.
Breast reduction surgery removes part of the breast tissue to reduce the weight and size of the breasts. As a result, patients experience relief from many of the issues that accompany oversized breasts, have less pain and discomfort and can enjoy more freedom and a wider range of activities. Many patients enjoy the improved appearance of their breasts after the surgery.
Long and short-term risks
As with any surgery, there are risks. Bleeding, infection, and reaction to anesthesia are rare occurrences. Another small risk of Breast Reduction surgery is that the breasts may be asymmetrical in size and shape after surgery. During the procedure, a considerable portion of tissue is removed and the nipple must be moved, all while the patient is in a lying position. Consequently, the nipple may not be positioned properly, or the nipples may not be the same height. It can be very difficult to estimate the exact nipple location and size-and-shape change that will occur when the patient returns to an upright position.
The most common side effect of Breast Reduction is that it leaves permanent scars on the breasts. The scars remain even after the breast is completely healed. Smoking blocks oxygen intake during the healing process, so smokers can expect their breast surgery scars to be even larger and less smooth. Also, patients who fail to heed restrictions on exercise and strenuous activity run the risk of causing scars to heal improperly.
