Related to an excessive development of the mammary gland and distension of the skin, it can already happen at puberty..
Patients undergo surgery either before their maternity or after. To intervention between pregnancies is not recommended because the breasts would deteriorate again by the distension of pregnancy
Sitting position (lying down, we straighten the table at the beginning of the intervention to see the breast in the most physiological position).
We will uplift the areola, the breast is reduced in width, volume and uplifted.
Two possibilities of scars depending on the volume to be removed and the importance of the fall of the breast (ptosis)
- Areolar necrosis (lack of blood supply to the nipple causing scabs and poor healing).
Favoring factor is smoking (smoking cessation mandatory before surgery and in the days that follow) and the importance of ptosis (the fall of the breast. The lower the areola is the more careful we have to be. (In the case of very droopy areolas a special technique called “Mac Kissock” is required).
- The postoperative scars should be massaged and strips of silicone gel for flattening should be applied. A scar develops 12 to 18 months.
- Possible social security refund based on your height and your weight. The reduction must be, if you are thin 300g per breast, if you are more round, 400g per breast.
- In case the reduction is less than 300g its cosmetic surgery and therefore not supported.
