An example of one of the cases of Reduction Mammoplasty


This patient asked for advice about the aesthetic request for her breasts. She had 3 pregnancies and is currently in the menopause. Her request exclusively related to the breasts. She complained about the volume of her mammary glands that she thought were too big and on their sagging appearance. In addition, the patient experienced chronic pain in the neck and back. The patient wanted to lift her breasts and reduce their volume.

The examination revealed a clear expression of the volume of glandular tissue in relation to the figure of the patient, with a large surplus of skin surrounding the mammary gland, which caused the appearance of the patient’s sagging breasts. In addition, the patient had a low position of areolas of anomalously large size.

This patient underwent an intervention to reduce the breast volume in order to achieve a proportional combination with her figure, return to the previous state on the basis of an individual approach to the skin surrounding the mammary gland, change the size of the areolas and bring them to a normal state and reach them optimal location. This intervention made it possible to achieve a natural breast type in complete harmony with the patient’s figure.
