Experts in Reduction Mammoplasty

Reduction mammoplasty is a technique that aims to reduce and elevate the breast and at the same time, give it a rounded shape with projection at the upper pole. These three objectives are fundamental to achieve a good result. Breast reduction does not only consist of reducing the breast but also of returning the breast to its place, as it is generally sagging, and also giving it a suitable shape and projection so that it fills the bra correctly, basically in the upper pole. At the same time we will perform a reduction of the areola (pigment that surrounds the nipple) as this areola is generally widened in people with very large and sagging breasts. This will also give a natural shape and appearance to the breast with an areola that does not come out of the bikini top when we go to the beach.

Reduction Mammoplasty

Yes, it is very important to use the right timing to obtain a good result. Reduction mammoplasty and mastopexy are techniques that require the use of the breast ligaments to support it. In this way we not only manage to reduce the breast but also to put it in place and give it the right volume and shape. A reduced surgical time puts the viability of the nipple and areola at risk and also jeopardises the long term results as the scars often widen and the areola can become unfolded. Surgical times for a reduction mammoplasty should not be less than four hours, as below this time the results will be unsatisfactory.

The most important risk of a reduction mammoplasty is necrosis or loss of the nipple-areola complex. This is frequent in inexperienced centers and using inadequate surgical techniques. It is very important to perform the pediculization of the breast correctly preserving its vascularization and innervation so that this does not occur, otherwise this complication will occur and is irreversible for the patient.

Once the operation is over, the patient is placed in a special bandage in the operating room so you do not need to wear a bra. From the fourth or fifth day the bandage is removed and a bra is placed that must be worn 24 hours a day for long periods (several months). It is very important in the long term that the patient always use a good bra and also use it to sleep, as this allows the breast does not move, that remains in place and therefore does not fall again.

No, in no case does it increase the risk of cancer. However, it is advisable to perform a control mammography one year after the surgery since it will alter the image of the mammography and therefore it is necessary to have a control mammography when the breast is already stable to be able to compare the following mammograms with the one done after the intervention. This helps the radiologist to know if certain images may be related to tumor processes or not.

Basically a bad surgical technique performed in inexperienced or low-cost centers whose only intention is to shorten surgical times in order to lower prices. Shortening surgical times puts the patient and her results at risk and increases the number of complications. Complications are greatly reduced with a meticulous surgical technique for which the indicated times are necessary. The surgeon's experience and professionalism is closely related to the low number of complications and good results.
