Reduction mammaplasty aims to reduce excessive breast size. Many women opt for this procedure for both aesthetic and health reasons. The surgery helps women with very large breasts to eliminate, for example, swelling in the lower limbs, frequent headaches and backaches, as well as respiratory or skin problems. Surgical breast reduction takes two to three hours. It is performed under general anaesthesia. The client can be discharged to home care the next day. The stitches are removed in ten to fourteen days. A specially adapted bra is worn for a period of six weeks after the procedure. Only subtle scars occur in the operated areas. The result is permanent.
