Breast reduction and suspension


Breast reduction and suspension

Goal: Volume reduction, breast lift, reshaping of large and flaccid breasts.

Surgical technique: There are many surgical techniques depending on the size and shape of breasts. Among them the most common are:

  1. Inverted T technique which assumes circular scar around the areola, one vertical and one horizontal scar (hidden in the submammary line).
  2. Vertical technique, with circular scar around the areola and one vertical scar with wrinkles which disappear within two months.
  3. Periareolar technique, only with one circular scar around the areola. This technique is not suitable for very large breasts.

Duration and anesthesia: 2.5 – 3.5 hours in general anesthesia

Recovery: Usual activities after 5 – 7 days. Stitches are removed after 2 weeks. Suspension bra is recommended.

Rare complications: Temporary sensitivity loss, mild edema which passes in 1-2 weeks, possible small cysts in glandular tissue. No guaranties that glandular tissue will stay fully functional for breastfeeding.
