Large breasts may cause a variety of health, social and
even psychological problems such as neck, back and shoulder pain, nausea and
rash caused by breasts, limitation of physical activities and inability to wear
desired clothes. Apart from genetic factors, weight gain, births and
breastfeeding increase the size and sagging of the breasts. Also, in some cases
both breasts may not be the same size. In order to achieve symmetry in breast

For your online consultation, we will kindly ask you to send your photos as shown in the Photography Guide down below, so we can evaluate your case.
Once you have decided to undergo a breast reduction surgery, we will plan and customize the whole procedure so as to suit your personal preferences, needs, and the clinics’ practices. Although it can differ from one patient to the other, there are quite a few stages involved in this procedure. To give you an idea, here is what you can expect:
1. Surgery Preparation
When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your breast reduction surgeon. Part of the discussions will be about your expectations and goals. You will undergo both physical, blood tests and an X-ray of the breast (mammogram) so as to examine your overall health condition. After this, the surgeon will make an illustration of what to expect by drawing marks on your new beard line. Once everything has been set, your surgeon will then give you anesthesia.
Once you are anesthetized, the surgery will begin. Your surgeon will start by making an incision around the areola to the breast crease and an inverted T-shaped incision. After the incisions, your surgeon will reposition the nipples, and remove unwanted fat, glandular tissue, and excess skin from your breasts. The surgeon will then reshape the remaining tissue according to your expectations.
To some patients, incision lines can be permanent, but to others, they tend to disappear and improve significantly over a certain period of time –especially when the surgery is performed by an experienced surgeon.
In addition to breast reduction, your surgeon can also recommend breast lift as a complementary procedure for a maximum aesthetic change.
