When a Large Bust Becomes a Problem
As mentioned above: A large breast hurts, causes back pain due to the weight pulling forward and thus postural damage with long-term consequences: Wear of the spine.
Psychological consequences can occur: The woman feels uncomfortable and observed, is ashamed. However, it may well be that she is actually observed and not only feels this way: A very large breast attracts the gaze, not only of men, but also of women …
A breast remains as big as it is: losing weight doesn’t help.
Psychotherapy, which is recommended again and again by the health insurance company, does not help either.
Aim of the Treatment for Breast Reduction
The aim of such an operation is to achieve a significantly smaller, well-formed, beautiful breast that fits the patient. This will be explained in the consultation.
If the shape of the breast is missing, i.e. the size is right, a breast lift is recommended
Procedure of the Treatment
Breast surgery takes place under general anaesthesia and takes about four hours. There are two procedures for correcting large breasts:
The scar-saving method: In the scar-free procedure, the incision is made only around the nipple (perimamillary) and vertically from the nipple into the sub-breast fold (sub-mammary fold). The incision in the lower breast fold is omitted. This variant is possible if the breast is moderately enlarged and moderately saggy.
The classic method: The classical method also works in the submammary fold and is correct for very large and sagging breasts.
If the breast is huge, it is called a gigantomasty, the doctor will cut out the nipple in advance. The breast is then reduced in size and shaped, then the nipple is sewn into its new position.
After the operation our patients will stay one night in the clinic so that we can take care of them and they feel comfortable. They go home the next day and get everything they need: A special bra, my mobile number in case of emergency, painkillers, instructions on how assist the healing process (what the patient should and should not do) and a check-up appointment in our German offices.
