Breast Reduction

An appropriate volume

Breast Reduction

Woman´s breasts are very important to her corporal beauty as they are an obvious symbol of her female identity. An overlarge bosom is not only potentially anti-aesthetic but can also overload and damage the back. That is why mammoplasty or breast surgery is so frequent. Breast reduction or mammoplasty is a surgical technique, whose main target is the modification of the breast´s shape and size, in order it to be adequated to the patient´s funtional and aesthetic requirements.


In cases where the breasts are too large, the problem can be solved by an operation that removes the excess fat and skin and raises the height of the areola-nipple, while reducing the size of the breasts and giving them the desired shape and firmness.

When the breasts are really large and extend to the armpit, with no separation at the cleavage and they sag much more than normal, the complaint is known as gigantomastia. (In these cases scarring is greater.)

Dr. Jorge Planas explains the results

The patients who undergo breast reduction to solve functional problems obtain very good results because there is an immediate improvement in postural problems and headaches, neck and back pain, which has a positive impact on their general health. Regarding the aesthetic benefits, women who have undergone this surgical technique are very satisfied with their harmonic and natural breast according to their expectations.

Dr. Gabriel Planas explains the results

It is a surgery in demand, not only for aesthetic reasons; but for the large volume of breasts that often cause back pain, dermatitis in breast grooves and much discomfort. This surgery is literally “a great load off” for the patients. What the surgeon often hears after this surgery is "I wish I had undergone surgery before".

Dr. Carlos del Cacho explains the results

A young breast is, by definition, a firm and turgid breast, not too voluminous. Breast reduction provides a youthful appearance to the breast and the whole body contour, which is very gratifying to the patient. Thus, at the same time that it loses the heavy, voluminous and matronly look and the discomfort involved in excessive volume, the body contour seems to change and get lighter.

Those patients, who undergo breast reduction to solve functional problems, obtain very good results, which have a positive impact on their general health. Regarding the aesthetic benefits, it provides a harmonic and natural breast shape according with their expectations. The patient will no longer be subjected to the use of special clothing and may return to sports that could not previously perform.

Dr. Jaume Masià explains the results

Volume reduction allows recovering a firm and turgid breast, giving a youthful look. The result is very rewarding, because besides the remarkable aesthetic improvement, the patient increases her quality of life, correcting the problems produced by the excessive volume, and returning to activities that could not perform before.
