Breast Reduction Breast Hypertrophy

Psychologically and physically, a woman carries her large breast as a burden. Breast reduction gives her back her freedom of movement, redraws her silhouette and allows her to experience her femininity with rediscovered lightness.


Why  ?


When a too big breast is disabling in everyday life, when we cannot do sport, when we are embarrassed to dress.

Because the insistent gaze of men and the fantasy that a large chest can induce are too heavy to bear ...

Because it's the moment when you feel ready, and when you have accepted the idea of having scars.


How? 'Or' What  ?


You can have an operation from the age of 17, as long as the breast size is stable.

The purpose of this intervention is twofold  : reduce the volume of the breasts and correct the often associated drooping form (ptosis). It is necessary to remove part of the contents of the breast (gland and fat) and part of the skin of the breast, which necessarily involves scarring. In the vast majority of cases, three scars are necessary (around the areola, vertical and horizontal in the inframammary fold). This is called breastplasty in "  T  ". The operation is performed under general anesthesia. One to three nights of hospitalization are necessary.


Suites and result.


The procedure is not painful in most patients. The scars are usually quite inflammatory within a month of the operation, with redness and itching. These phenomena are normal and subside over time, in a few months. The final result is assessed after one year.


A sports bra without underwire is put on before the outing.

Stopping all sporting activity is recommended for a month.


The comfort and well-being felt after this surgery are very fast. The operated patients speak of a "  new life  who starts  »And regret not having done this operation earlier.




In addition to those linked to general anesthesia, there are sometimes disturbances in the sensitivity of the areola (often transient). Very rarely, disorders of the vascularization of the areola can lead to partial or total necrosis of the areola, requiring local care long enough to obtain healing. This complication is much more common in smokers, as are healing disorders with opening of the scar (disunity).

The other complications are detailed in the SoFCPRE information sheet.
