Breast reduction


Breast reductionPeople who want to know about the cosmetic surgery of breast reduction in Malaga and the Costa del Sol, can receive basic information on this website of Dr. Ruiz Ruiz, Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon.


Excess volume (breast hypertrophy) and weight in the breasts causes physical discomfort such as back and neck pain, skin irritations under the breasts and respiratory problems.

Breast hypertrophy (over-sized breasts) can be classified in various degrees:

•        The first being simply a psychological problem, where there is no physical pain or problems. The woman simply feels her breasts are too big.

•        The second being a situation that presents physical symptoms such as back pain or disorders of the spine.

•        The third and most extreme, which is where the symptoms are most noticeable and the breasts have reached disproportionate size (gigantomastia).

A breast reduction (mammoplasty) surgery provides the woman with smaller, lighter and firmer breasts and with a more proportional shape to the rest of the body, lifting them up into a natural position.

Breast reduction surgery: How is it done?

Dr. Ruiz Ruiz, plastic and cosmetic surgeon, perfoms the breast reduction in an operating theatre, in a clinic or hospital in Malaga or the Costa del Sol under general anesthetic, the patient is asleep during the operation. The cosmetic surgery procedure lasts between approximately two to four hours, with different techniques available but most commonly it is performed by incisions around the areola with a vertical line going downwards and another horizontal one in the crease beneath the breast.

Once completed, the excess skin, fat and breast tissue is removed, relocating the areola and the nipple into their new position. The areola maintains normal sensation in the majority of cases, apart from in large reductions in which it is necessary to completely separate the areola and sensation may be lost.

After the plastic surgery, drainage tubes are inserted and a bandage wrapped around the breasts. After the breast reduction you may feel tired for a few days, but you will be almost back to normal life after two days. The bandages that were put on after the operation are removed after a few days and replaced with a special bra. The stitches are removed after between 7 to 14 days and the bruising disappears between three and six weeks.

Breast reduction: Recovery

Depending on the usual activity of the patient, they can return to work after two to three weeks, although everyday routine can be resumed after a few days, limiting intense activities to begin with. After the plastic surgery, some patients may no longer be able to breastfeed future babies.
