During the procedure

The surgery includes the following:

  • Providing the patient with a serum containing antibiotics
  • Makes a surgical incision around the areola area and down the breast
  • Removes excess tissue, fat and skin from the breast to reduce the size of each breast
  • Changing the shape of the breast and correcting the position of the nipple and areola

The nipple and areola remain attached to the breast but the surgeon may need to reposition them higher if the breasts are too large.
The incisions are then closed with special cosmetic stitches covered with antibiotics in order to reduce the risk of infections.
The scars of the incisions will fade over time, but they will not disappear completely.
The operation takes about two hours.
The technique used to reduce the size of the breasts may vary.

Breast reduction techniques

This procedure can be done by surgery or liposuction

Breast reduction by liposuction with ultrasound or laser

It is a simpler technique that is done under local anaesthesia. In this technique, the surgeon makes a very small incision to insert the device. Which will produce an ultrasound wave to dissolve fat before the suction process.
The use of ultrasound also helps tighten the skin by stimulating tissues to produce the collagen needed for the vitality and elasticity of the skin.
The most important things that distinguish it from normal surgery are that the incision is very small and therefore not visible, the patient does not need a long recovery period and complications after the operation are less.
This method is suitable for those who do not suffer from a significant increase in breast size, and those who have great skin elasticity.

Surgical reduction of the breast

Surgery is performed under general anaesthesia, then your doctor performs a surgical incision around the areola area below the breast to remove excess tissue, fat and skin from it.
The incision is usually performed in one of two techniques:

  • An anchor-shaped incision under the nipple.
  • Incision around the nipple.

The incision is then closed with special cosmetic stitches, then the breasts are covered with proper bandages.
