Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery, also called breast reduction surgery, removes fat, breast tissue, and skin from the breasts. For women with large breasts, breast reduction surgery can reduce discomfort and improve appearance.

Breast reduction surgery also helps improve self-image and ability to participate in physical activity.

Breast reduction surgery is for people with large breasts that cause:

  • chronic back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Bra strap shoulder groove
  • Chronic rash or skin irritation under the breast
  • neuralgia
  • unable to participate in some activities
  • Deterioration of self-image due to big breasts
  • Poor fit of bra or clothes

Breast reduction surgery is generally not recommended for people who:


Very obese

Don’t want scars on the breasts

Breast reduction surgery can be done at any age. However, breasts that have not fully grown may require a second surgery later in life.

Reasons for postponing breast reduction include:

Planning to have children

Breastfeeding may be difficult after breast reduction surgery. However, certain surgical techniques can help maintain the ability to breastfeed.

Planning to lose weight

Losing weight often changes the size of your breasts.

The method used to reduce the size of your breasts can vary. The process might include:
  • Surgery through incisions
  • Liposuction to remove excess fat in the breasts
The surgeon usually:
  • Makes an incision around the nipple and areola and down each breast
  • Removes excess breast tissue, fat and skin to reduce the size of each breast
  • Reshapes the breast and resets the nipple and area around it, also known as the areola


The nipple and the area around it usually stay attached to the breast. For very large breasts, the surgeon might need to remove them and add on a new nipple.

Your surgeon will try to make your breasts look alike, but breast size and shape might vary somewhat. The size of the areola also might be smaller. The incision scars will fade over time, but they will not completely go away.

Immediately after surgery:

  • The breasts are covered with bandages and a surgical bra to hold them in place
  • A tube might be placed under each arm to drain any extra blood or fluid
  • You may receive medicine for pain and medicine to decrease the risk of infection

For the first days or week after surgery:

  • The breasts will probably feel tender
  • The breasts might be swollen and bruised
  • A surgical bra that closes in front is worn to support the breasts

After that:

  • Limit physical activity for 4 to 6 weeks while the breasts heal
  • Wear an approved surgical bra at all times to allow the breasts to heal and reduce swelling

Scarring fades over time. You will need a follow-up visit with your surgeon to check your recovery.
