Women suffering backaches, neck strains and physical restrictions due to an oversized bust benefit a lot from Breast reduction surgery or reduction mammaplasty.

Breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves removal of excess breast tissue and resizing and reshaping the breasts. This surgery is often combined with a liposuction of the side chest rolls and breast for a better end result.

Reduction mammaplasty can be done using various techniques such as Anchor Pattern Breast Reduction, Vertical Incision Breast Reduction Surgery, Scar less Breast Reduction Surgery, and Breast Reduction through Liposuction. Our surgeons at Divine Proportions can help you choose the procedure best suited to give you the results you want.

 

  • Reduction mammaplasty is almost always performed under general anesthesia and takes about 2-4 hours.

  • Ensure that you always wear a surgical bra for several weeks following surgery.
  • Light activities within a few days following breast reduction surgery are acceptable however avoid pulling and pushing motions, lifting weights, vigorous physical activity and exercise for at least six weeks.
