Sometimes large breasts can lead to bad posture or back problems, making a woman’s life uncomfortable. With this procedure the patient can improve both her appearance and way of life.
The technique used to perform the surgery may vary depending on the breast’s size. In the case of a mild hypertrophy, periareolar techniques are used, leaving almost invisible scarring. Severe cases need to be done by different means, with larger incisions that can leave a scar in the shape of an inverted “T” going from the areola to the bottom of the breast. Lactation is not affected in neither one of these procedures. In the first weeks some sensibility may be lost on the nipples but it will return progressively.
