Overly large breasts make a woman’s life difficult; they can cause neck and back pain and affect the posture. Besides, large breasts become loose and age faster and they sag after giving birth and breastfeeding considerably more than average-sized or small breasts. Overly large breasts can also disturb your everyday life and be an obstacle in doing sports.
During breast reduction surgery, excessive fat tissue and skin are removed and the nipples are repositioned.
Good to know:
- Surgery is performed with general anaesthesia.
- You cannot eat or drink 6-8 hours before surgery.
- After surgery, you will spend the night in the clinic under the care of a nurse.

- Recovery and return to normal life rhythm takes approximately 3-4 weeks; you can start physical exercise after 4-6 weeks from surgery.

The first post-surgery follow-up is usually after one month from surgery, then after 3 months, 6 months and 12 months, and from there on once a year.
