Most women in this day and age are reclaiming their beauty standards and taking more control of their bodies. This means they continually dictate what is deemed beautiful and what pleases them about their body. In the years past we have seen more and more women opt for breast reduction because they feel big breasts are tedious to have at a big size. 

Thankfully due to advancements in modern medicine, women can now enjoy the results of breast reduction surgery procedures like superomedial pedicle and the inferior pedicle breast reduction technique which can guarantee the size of your desired breasts.

What is Central Pedicle Breast Reduction?

A breast reduction pedicle procedure or a reduction mammoplasty as it is referred to in other medical circles is a process that involves a process that reduces the size of the breast to give it a rounder and aesthetically appealing look. The surgeon makes incisions around the upper and lower side of the breast also known as the inframammary fold and then bridges the tissue on both sides. 

Who Can Have Central Pedicle Breast Reduction? 

A lot of people can be viable for breast reduction, but it is mostly women who want to change the look of their breasts.

  • Healthy women who want to reduce issues like back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain due to having large breasts.
  • White collar job working women who can afford to get a wise incision breast reduction
  • Women who are not mothers, that is not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Women experiencing any rash or skin irritation under their breasts
  • Women who struggle to find bras and clothing their size

Central Pedicle Breast Reduction Treatment Duration  

A central pedicle breast reduction treatment usually lasts around 2 to 3 hours. And it usually varies due to the experience of the surgeon and the technique they are using. 

Central Pedicle Breast Reduction Side Effects

Getting a central pedicle breast reduction is regarded as one of the best ways to get your breasts reduced to your desired size but it should also be noted that it may come with some side effects. These include but are not limited to:

  • Anesthesia-related complications 
  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Temporary swelling
  • Mild changes in nipple or breast sensation
  • Hematoma
  • Blood clotting
  • Breast contour and shape irregularities 

Central Pedicle Breast Reduction Surgery Recovery Time

After your central pedicle breast reduction surgery procedure is done, full recovery will take around 2 to 6 weeks. Although the doctor is likely to permit you to get back to normal life within the first weeks, only with a few limitations. 

Central Pedicle Breast Reduction Success Rate

The breast reduction procedure is very delicate but it is also one of the most successful surgeries with a 90% success rate. In some cases, it is more than that.

How Is Central Pedicle Breast Reduction Performed?

Before your surgery is performed you need to make an online consultation first. This is the stage where you will ask the surgeon important questions pertaining to travel, accommodation, and the nature of the procedure. You can also communicate with the doctor if you have any allergies that you diagnosed with or if you are taking any medication. 

Preparing for Surgery

When you arrive at the clinic of your choosing, you will be consulted directly by your breast reduction surgeon. This is where both of you will go over your expectations and goals. You will undergo both physical and blood tests as well as a mammogram to check your general health.

The surgeon will then illustrate what to expect by drawing marks on your new chest line. Once everything is stable, your surgeon will administer some anesthesia.


Once you are under local anesthesia, the surgery will commence. The surgeon will start with an incision around the lower end of the breast to the breast crease and make an inverted T-shaped incision. After the incision is made, your surgeon will reposition the nipple and remove unwanted fat, glandular tissue, and excess skin from the breast. The surgeon will restructure the rest of the tissue according to your previously discussed desires.

In some patients, the incision line may remain permanently, but in others, it tends to vanish and improve significantly over a period of time, especially if the surgery is performed by an experienced surgeon.

What To Expect After Central Pedicle Breast Reduction?

  • You can expect the desired results to be immediately visible. The surgeon may place a tube under each arm to drain the excess blood and fluids.
  • You will experience some tenderness in your breasts within the first few days or weeks post-surgery. This is usually coupled with some swelling but you should not be alarmed as it is part of the healing process.
  • You will be advised to minimize intense physical activities for about two to 14 days. You should also avoid wearing bras that have wires in the lining as they may hinder recovery. 
  • If you own a car, you should also avoid driving especially if putting on a seatbelt is still painful. 
  • There will be a follow-up from your surgeon to check how recovery is going.
  • Avoid smoking by any means as this can be harmful to the healing process.
  • Avoid heavy exercise for 4-6 weeks. Then gradually increase the intensity of your activity according to your tolerance. After two weeks, you can do light lower-body exercises, but you should wait six weeks before doing upper-body exercises.
  • Wait 48 hours after removing the drain tubes before you can shower. 
  • Do not expose scars to the sun for at least 12 months. Always use strong sunscreen if sun exposure is unavoidable.
  • Keep the incisions sanitary and check for signs of infection daily.
  • Wear a surgical bra 24/7 for 6 weeks after surgery or as often as recommended by your surgeon.
  • Your surgeon may allow you to switch to a sports bra after two weeks.
  • Follow your surgeon's postoperative instructions carefully and report any significant changes you feel during the recovery period.

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I highly recommended Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
