breast reduction Paris

Breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) reduces the volume of the chest, treats excess skin and mammary glands and harmonizes the chest with the rest of the body.

Breast reduction scars (peri-areolar, vertical scar and breast fold) are visible for a few months and then gradually fade. The results of breast reduction are appreciable six months to one year after the intervention.

It is possible to correct breast ptosis and raise the areola at the same time.

Breast cosmetic surgery is covered by social security in the event of breast hypertrophy.

The price of breast reduction surgery depends on the complexity of your case.

Definition: what is breast reduction?

Unlike breast augmentation, breast reduction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that reduces the volume of the breasts.

The intervention includes:

  • removal of excess mammary gland and excess skin
  • repositioning of the areola and nipple
  • remodeling of the residual mammary gland.

This operation requires an inverted T scar.

The length of the horizontal scar in the submammary fold depends on the initial volume of your breasts. The vertical scar is still present.

A mammaplasty for hypertrophy can be performed from the end of growth.
A subsequent pregnancy is possible but it is advisable to wait until the end of the pregnancies before having the operation.

Breastfeeding is as often possible after mammaplasty. However, this cannot be promised in all cases. It is necessary to mention the risk of an impossibility to breastfeed after certain mammaplasties for hypertrophy.

Why have surgery for breast hypertrophy?

  • Reduce breast size
  • Beautify breasts
  • Reduce the weight of the breasts to relieve the back and the cervical
  • Harmonize the silhouette

Who are good candidates for breast reduction?

Breast reduction is for patients who suffer from breast hypertrophy or breast volume that is too large.

This excess volume is often associated with sagging breasts or breast ptosis and sometimes with a certain degree of asymmetry.
Breast hypertrophy almost always involves physical and functional repercussions:

  • Back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Discomfort for the practice of sports
  • Difficulties getting dressed.
  • Notable psychological impact.

How is breast reduction for the patient?

A usual preoperative assessment is carried out:

  • Clinical examination in medical consultation
  • Anesthesia consultation
  • Radiological assessment of the breast (mammography, ultrasound) to detect a risk of cancer

Then, each surgeon adopts his own technique and adapts it to each case to obtain the best results during the operation. Here’s what you need to know:

  • The procedure lasts an average of two hours in the operating room under general anesthesia.
  • The surgeon completely reshapes your breasts and removes excess gland and fat from the breasts.
  • At the end of the operation, a modeling dressing, with elastic bands in the shape of a bra, is made.

Once the operation is complete, here are the consequences you will face:

  • Discharge the day after the operation
  • Wearing a compression bra recommended for about a month.
  • Recovery and work stoppage last 15 days on average.
  • The post-operative follow-up is generally painless, requiring only simple analgesics.
  • Swelling (oedema) and ecchymosis (bruising) of the breasts, as well as discomfort when raising the arms are frequently observed.
  • Loss of sensation in the nipple and skin is possible but gradually disappears.

The final result of the breast reduction is judged one year after the operation. The chest then most often has a harmonious curve, symmetrical or very close to symmetry, and natural.

This intervention has a favorable impact on the balance of weight, the practice of sports, the possibilities of clothing and the psychological state.

There is coverage by social security in some cases. Your plastic surgeon will explain this to you during a medical consultation.


How big are the breasts after breast reduction?

It will depend on your goals and your anatomy. However, it is never a good idea to focus on one cup size. The important thing is to create breasts proportional to your anatomy.

Is breast sensitivity changed after breast reduction?

Most patients retain nipple sensation, although usually your nipples are not as sensitive as they were before surgery.

The most prominent scar is in the lower half of the breast which will be numb for some time.

The nipple and upper half of the breast usually return to normal.

What is the difference between breast enlargement and a breast lift?

The breast lift or ptosis cure changes the shape of the breast, not the volume. A breast reduction will also reduce your breast volume in addition to improving the shape of the breasts.

Is it possible to breastfeed after breast reduction?

Most patients can. If you are absolutely determined to breastfeed, it is better to wait until the end of your pregnancies before breast reduction because there is no guarantee.

What scars after breast reduction?

We make every effort to ensure that your end results are as beautiful as possible. We use the latest techniques available to limit the size and appearance of incisions after surgery.

The appearance of the scars depends on the intervention as well as your skin quality. Using multiple layers of internal sutures also helps minimize the appearance of scarring during the healing process.

Most women think that the beautiful end results outweigh the scarring that this procedure requires.
