A breast reduction surgery might be advisable from an aesthetic point of view or because of medical problems (like back ache or neck complaints due to painful breasts).
The actual operation technique for a breast reduction depends on your breast size and firmness of your breasts. Dr Makram will discuss the most suitable procedure with you, during a prior consultation.
In contrary to a breast lift, breast tissue is removed during a breast reduction. A breast reduction takes 2 to 3 hours, you can go home the same day but usually it’s better to stay one night at the hospital.
Following a breast reduction you will be required to wear a sports-bra for 3 weeks. Because the nipple needs to be repositioned, which requires the cutting of fine nerves, the sensitivity in the nipple might be a little bit decreased after the operation.
