If you recognize yourself with these issues and you have large breasts and are simply unhappy with your situation, the solution for you is breast reduction surgery.

As in the breast lift procedure, breast reduction incisions have the same similarities. Our doctor will discuss the best technique with the individual patient and tailor the technique for the needs ahead. The operating time is normally between 1 to 3 hours.

IN/OUT Patient

Usually performed on an inpatient basis.

Recovery Period

It will be more comfortable to sleep on the back for the first two weeks, and a return to work is between one to two weeks. Strenuous activities may be resumed in one month, and it will take several months to a year for the scars to fade.

Risks and side effects

All surgical incisions comes with a risk, there could be complications or effects from the narcos, infections, flushes, bleeding or pain. The breast or nipple sensation may change, usually temporarily and more often just an adjustment. There can also be temporary bruising, some swelling and discomfort, numbness and dry breast skin. Serious risks are not common. Delays in healing can be caused by collections of fluid (seroma) that need to be drained; infection or bleeding under the skin flap. To prevent these issues at Shape Medical Centre, we are very tedious with the aftercare, we are here for our patients.  

Duration of the results

Pregnancy and breastfeeding may affect and change the size and shape of the breasts. Some women undergo breast reduction surgery before having children, preferring to address any changes in shape and size at a later date. Gravity, pregnancy, aging and weight changes may have significant and unpredictable effects on the size and shape of the new breasts. Breast lift surgery will not interfere with the ability to breastfeed as long as the milk ducts are left intact, and if you plan to breastfeed in the future you should discuss this with your doctor.
