Breast Reduction

Breast reduction aims to reduce the volume of the breasts, correct ptosis and a possible asymmetry,in order to obtain two harmonious breasts in their own term as well as in relation to the patient’s morphology (two breasts which are reduced, lifted, symmetrical and remodelled).

Breast hypertrophy is defined by a very large breast volume, for instance not in proportion to the patient’s morphology.  This excessive volumeis usually associated with a breastcollapse (breast ptosisasymmetry).

Breast hypertrophy almost always implies physical and functional effects (pain in the neck, shoulders and back, impairment for the practice of sports, difficulties to dress).  There is also often a notable psychological impact.

Breast reduction surgery is, by principle, carried out in two stages:

  • Stage 1 : The surgeon removes the excessive glandular tissue whilst maintaining avolume which is suited to the patient’s figure and fulfils her requirements. This resulting glandular volume is lifted, concentrated and remodelled. 
  • Stage 2 : The surgeon adapts the skin envelope, which implies the removal of the excess skin so as to ensure the new breasts have a good hold and a nice shape. 

The costs of a breast reduction can be covered by the national health insurance under certain conditions.
