Breast reduction surgery is also known as Reduction Mammoplasty which removes the extra tissue and skin from the breast. Breast reduction surgery is performed to reshape and reduce the size of the breasts. It will also help to reduce the area of dark skin around the nipple (areola).

If you have large breast size, breast reduction surgery will help you, to get a breast size that you desire, to improve your self-confidence and to reduce your discomfort.

Are you a Candidate?

Breast reduction surgery is done to change the size, weight, shape, and firmness of the breasts. This surgery can be done :

  • If the heavy and big breast is making you uncomfortable and that is causing you a back and neck pain
  • If you face shoulder indentations from bra straps
  • If you are looking to avoid skin irritation and posture problems
  • If you have realistic expectations and you are physically healthy
  • If you do not smoke
  • If you feel self-conscious wearing your favourite dress because of your heavy and large breasts


The breast reduction surgery is performed to reduce the size of breast by removing excess glandular tissues, fat, and skin and relocating the nipple, which provides the young and cheerful look to the breast. The procedure is done under general anaesthesia for trouble-free and comfortable surgery. The extra tissues around the breast are removed and redesigned. The areola is reduced if necessary and repositioned keeping the blood and nerve supply normal. This furnishes the look of the breast. The incision closures are done with the suitable sutures later.

Usually, the nipple-areola complex remains attached to the nerves and blood vessels. In some cases of heavy and large breasts, the nipple-areola complex is completely detached and placed to the new higher position.

Surgical Techniques for Breast Reduction Procedure :

  • Anchor Pxattern Incision :
    This is the standard technique of breast reduction where the maximum reduction is possible. However, the disadvantage of this procedure is, this is a very invasive technique. The incision is given horizontally under the breast crease, then ongoing vertically to the nipples and continues around the nipple giving the incision an anchor pattern.
  • Vertical Incision :
    This kind of technique is also known as short scar reduction or LeJour breast reduction. The incision continues around the areola and the runs down vertically to the breast crease. This technique of incision shows good outcome since it results in more curvaceous breasts and less scarring.
  • Liposuction Breast Reduction :
    The breasts carry more fat tissues than glandular tissues hence the excess fat is removed from the breasts. The skin improves and restores gradually giving a natural appearance to the breasts. Moreover, the sensations of nipple and ability to breastfeed are not compromised.
