Breast reduction


The weight of the excessively large breast can cause a multitude of health problems as pain in the back and rear, reddening of skin and difficulty in breathing. The intervention is undertaken in order to reduce the volume of the too large and drooping breast, as a technique is applied which gives them a suitable shape and tightness. Most often, reduction and lifting are implemented by means of removal of the redundant tissue – fat and skin and the areolas are moved at a new, higher level. As a result of this, an aesthetic, tight and proportional breast with harmonious contour is shaped.
