Breast Reduction

BREAST REDUCTION

Reduction surgery is designed to relieve the discomfort caused by large breasts and to bring them into proportion with the rest of the body. Due to the health risks associated with large breasts including back and postural problems and skin rashes, this procedure is often classified as a reconstructive procedure despite the added cosmetic benefit.

 

Dr Blaschke uses a method by which breast and fat tissue is being removed mostly from the lower and lateral part of the breast to preserve a full decollete. The nipple - areola complex is shifted to a higher position, excess skin will be excised. Dr Blaschke uses a method, whereby breast tissue is being placed and secured under the new area of highest projection like an implant, which leads to a perky and juvenile shape. The ugly horizontal scar is unnecessary.

 

You will spend one night under our care for your comfort and safety. The lower stiches are resorbable, the ones around the nipple complex will be removed after one week. Swelling, bruising and temporary discoloration are to be expected and you may also experience temporary loss of nipple sensation. You should be able to return to work within a week.

 

After surgery your breasts will be positioned higher and will feel firmer, scars tend to fade over time.
