Am I a good candidate for breast reduction?
If you do not feel comfortable with the volume of your chest, it seems excessive, or you have discomfort and interferes in your daily life, we invite you to come see Dr. Vicente Paloma and her team. The surgeon will explain the procedure in detail, show you before and after breast reduction photos and you can talk about the real results you can expect. We will invite you to use our image simulator, with which you can visualize the results of the intervention on your silhouette.
It will also be time to inform yourself about the price of a breast reduction for your specific case.
Breast reduction surgery
Breast reduction surgery lasts 2 to 3 hours under general anesthesia. You will have to spend a night in the hospital after the intervention. Although there are different techniques, the surgeon usually makes anchor incisions around the areola. Through these incisions, excess skin, fat and breast tissue are removed and the areola and nipple are repositioned in their new position.
In most cases of breast reduction the areola remains attached to your blood vessels and nerves, but in some cases of large reductions it may be necessary to completely separate the areola and place it in its new position.
After breast reduction, a bandage is placed around the breasts that the patient must wear for 2 or 3 days.
