Breast reduction

Reduction mammoplasty or breast reduction is a surgical technique that consists in reducing the size of the breasts through the removal of fatty tissue, breast tissue and excess skin, even modifying the size of both areolae. Thus, we will achieve a smaller and more aesthetic breast, consistent with the chest proportions of the patient. Women who undergo breast reduction surgery may pursue an aesthetic improvement and/or relieve physical problems related to excessively large breast, such as back pain or the failure or discomfort to carry out certain activities.

How is breast reduction performed?

There are different surgical techniques to perform reduction mammoplasty. The election of one technique or another depends on the amount of excess fatty tissue and the existing degree of ptosis (breast droop).
  • Circumareolar resection: this technique is useful in patients with a non-excessive breast volume, excessive inferior pole and little breast ptosis, in other words, in moderate breast reductions. This technique ends up with two scars: one scar around the areola and a vertical scar from the nipple to the mammary fold.
  • ‘Inverted T’ resection: It is best suited for patients who need an important breast reduction. This is the chosen technique by Dr. Joaquín Perez-Guisado Rosa. He considers this technique is definitive and it produces the best long-term result in case of breast hypertrophy. It consists in 3 incisions: one incision around the areola, a horizontal one in the mammary fold and a last vertical incision from the areola to the mammary fold. Due to these incisions, we can remove all the skin and fat excess and the surplus gland.
This surgery is performed using general anaesthesia, with an approximate duration of 4 or 6 hours. The patient will be admitted to hospital on the day of surgery and will go home next day.
