BREAST REDUCTION MAMMAREDUCTION
Due to the weight of their breasts, women with large drooping breasts (hanging breasts) often have health problems such as back and neck pain, neck and spinal problems ranging from pain and poor posture to impaired feeling in the hands.
Bra straps may leave painful grooves on the skin. Benign excessive enlargement of the breasts can caused significant problems for many women, from teenagers to elderly women.
Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty can help these patients. In the course of the operation, fat, gland tissue and skin are removed from the breasts and the breasts become smaller, lighter and firmer. At the same time the areola can be reduced in size.
The objective of breast reduction for the patient is to shape a smaller breast which is in proportion to the rest of the body.

In addition the text is intended to help you to be better prepared for your consultation with your plastic surgeon. During this personal consultation you will be given all the additional information which is specific to you as an individual patient. Please do not hesitate to ask questions if there is anything which you do not understand.
When is breast reduction beneficial for me?
Breast reduction is usually carried out in order to alleviate physical complaints. Most patients who decide on breast reduction are extremely restricted in their daily activities by their very large, pendulous breasts and have physical problems.
In most cases breast reduction is not carried out before the breasts are fully developed, although there are also young women with large, heavy breasts which cause serious physical complaints. However, you should plan your operation for a time when you have completed your family, as the operation may result in an impaired ability to breastfeed or even inability to do so.
