Breast reduction surgery in Malaga

Also known as reduction mastopexy. According to Dr. Javier Collado, this procedure aims to address a physical issue rather than purely an aesthetic concern. When recommended, it’s not just excess breast glandular tissue, but also excess skin. Thus, a reduction of both components will be necessary. This will require an inverted T-shaped or anchor-shaped scar on the operated breast.

With proper care, this scar will gradually become less noticeable and typically be covered by a bra or bikini. In cases of breast sagging, instead of moving the areola-nipple complex along with its blood vessels and nerves, it will need to be completely excised and applied as a skin graft. It’s important for patients not to smoke in the days before and after the procedure, as this affects the healing process.

Breast reduction is commonly performed to address a physical issue. Most women undergoing breast reduction are concerned about the excessive volume of their breasts, which interferes with various daily activities. Unfortunately, it can result in notable discomfort such as back pain or significant self-esteem issues.

There are different techniques for breast reduction, but the most common involves making an anchor-shaped incision, from the areola downward and following the natural curve of the breast. Excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin are removed, and the nipple and areola are repositioned. The skin from both sides of the breast is placed below and around the areola, forming its new contour.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any woman with considerable breast volume and sagging is eligible for this procedure. This excess volume and breast sagging affect the health of the cervical spine and shoulders.

The procedure is entirely safe, and patients typically don’t report pain, as the pectoral muscle doesn’t need to be lifted to insert a breast implant.

In all cases, the procedure is carried out under general anaesthesia, which is the safest option for the patient. The surgery lasts two to three hours, after which the patient is moved to recovery.
