Posture problems, back pain and skin irritations: in addition to these types of discomfort, breasts that are too cumbersome and heavy can cause minor or major relationship difficulties. By decreasing the amount of excess glandular tissue and correcting the normal drooping of the breasts due to their excessive weight, plastic surgery provides a definitive solution with a breast reduction operation.
The operation consists of the surgical reduction of the size of the breast, which is remodelled and at the same time moved to their correct position. It is recommended for women with not only cumbersome, but also sagging breasts; in addition to the physical problems they cause, both of these conditions can often have a negative impact on social life, sports activity and choices and freedom to choose clothing.
The operation is performed by removing excess skin, gland and fatty tissue, remodelling the remaining tissue and repositioning the nipple and the areola.
Breast reduction grants both physical and psychological benefits. The surgery not only reduces the size of the breast, but also reshapes and lifts it, boosting tone and improving proportion between the different parts of the torso. The operation alleviates any painful shoulder or spinal discomfort, together with the unpleasant sensation caused by excess weight, making it easier and more enjoyable to engage in any physical activity or sports. Any cause of embarrassment is furthermore removed, allowing the patient to wear lighter, more comfortable clothes and swimming costumes.
