What is a breast reduction?

Breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic procedure in which the breast is reduced to a smaller size. This is done by removing excess fat, skin, and tissue from the breast. During a breast reduction surgery, the shape and positioning can be changed if desired. It is also possible to combine procedures such as breast reduction and breast lift. This is something you and your surgeon will discuss and agree on before the surgery.

The surgery

The surgery itself is performed under general anesthesia and takes between 1 and 2 hours.

With breast reduction procedures you will have a inverted T incision on your breasts.

This is the most common incision. The resulting scar will be placed around the areola, between the areola and the breast fold and along the breast fold. This incision is necessary for larger breast reductions.

After the surgery

After the surgery, you will stay in the N1 Plastic Surgery recovery department for three to six hours. Here our team will take care of you, give you some food, and help you get dressed.

Sports BRA the first few weeks

After your surgery, you will receive a sports bra fitted specifically for you. The bra is to be worn day and night for about 6 weeks. This is crucial in order to achieve the best result.

Tension and tenderness

The first time after the surgery, you may experience a sensation of swelling, tension, and tenderness. This is temporary and will reduce gradually over the first few weeks after surgery.

After the surgery

One week after your surgery you will come back for the first post-surgery control. 14 days after your surgery, you will again return to the clinic and we will remove the remaining of stitches.
