Breast reduction


There are many different methods of breast reduction, which is known as mammary reductoplasty in the medical profession.
They are always focused on the circulation of the mammary gland and the nipple.

The objective of the operation

is the creation of an aesthetically pleasing breast form with as few scars as possible and an attractive side profile. My modern and gentle surgical procedures carry little risk of complications. Through the use of the most modern instruments, there is less circulatory disruption and swelling. The breasts heal very well and with good retained sensitivity
of the nipples.

Depending on the results of the examination and the size of the breasts, the breast reduction can be carried out with vertical stitching that leaves few scars, i.e. with vertical stitching underneath the nipple and around the areola.

If need be, an inverse T, inconspicuous and short in the lateral edges, is positioned in the new inframammary fold.

Technique according to Asplund Davies / Hall Findlay

I learnt the technique developed by the prominent British plastic surgeon Dai Davies at the Institute of Aesthetic Surgery in London. Due to the gentleness of the technique and the beautiful results, I prefer the vertical reduction with minimal scarring according to Asplund/Davies or the more or less identical Elisabeth Hall Findlay technique.

The maintenance of the breast is carried out via the medio-superior part of the breast. This entails tilting and rotating the mammary gland and the areola from the middle to the top and stitching the nipple in a tension-free manner.
Alternatively, the modified method according to Lassus/Marchac can be offered, or the inner bra technique. Ultimately, we always focus on a new modelling of the breast with beautiful results and the least possible scars.
