For many women, outsized breasts or breasts which are not in proportion with the rest of the body can be the source of postural issues and physical discomfort. Others find the condition, which may be determined by genetic or hormonal factors, can cause tremendous self-consciousness and psychological distress. Fortunately, the procedure known as reduction mammaplasty is now both relatively simple as well as affordable, resulting in a life-changing opportunity.
This commonly performed operation involves reducing the amount of breast and fatty tissue, as well reshaping and positioning the breasts to an optimum shape. Some people choose the procedure to correct an imbalance or asymmetry between the breasts.
Carried out under general anaesthetic, the procedure requires a hospital stay of one night, generally taking between 90 and 180 minutes to complete. Before the operation, Elena will take time to plan with you exactly what shape and size you want your new breasts to be. During the procedure itself, the breasts are reshaped and the nipples are repositioned to form smaller and younger looking breasts.
A short period of recuperation is required after undertaking a breast reduction procedure, generally of between one and two weeks of reduced activity.
