Oversized breasts affect overall body aesthetics in a negative way, giving a fat and disproportionate appearance.
Moreover, they can lead to neck shoulder or back pain, spinal problems, excessive sweating and itching under the breast, and even fungal skin infections. Big breasts tend to sag at earlier ages.
Reducing an oversized breast is a more detailed complicated operation, when compared to augmenting a small breast..
In breast reduction, the goal is to reduce the breast size to the desired level, to reshape the deformed breast, and to end up with the smallest scars possible. There are numerous surgical methods to do a breast reduction. Among these, the most popular one is called “vertical technique”. This technique enables us to complete the operation within 2 to 3 hours. After a single night hospital stay, the patient is discharged on the first postoperative day, and asked to come to a control visit on the third postoperative day. She can return to normal daily activities after a week.
This procedure ends up with a 5 to 6 cm long vertical scar from the areola margin to the fold below the breast, which will be less noticeable months after. Both the breast mound and the scar gain their final appearance by the end of one year postoperatively.
