July 23, 2024

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, goes beyond simply reducing breast size. It's a surgical procedure that addresses the physical and emotional burdens associated with having large breasts.

Several women struggling with debilitating physical symptoms due to huge breasts often opt for breast reduction surgery to achieve a smaller, more proportionate breast size that alleviates discomfort and improves overall well-being.

Handa Aesthetics is a leading clinic offering comprehensive breast reduction surgery, improving people’s self-confidence and increasing participation in physical activities.

Who Are Eligible Candidates For Breast Reduction Surgery?

If you are struggling with big or asymmetrical-sized breasts, you often experience pain, discomfort, and issues with your self-confidence.

However, multiple factors influence the eligibility criteria for whether or not you are an ideal candidate for the surgery. Ideally, breast reduction surgery is suitable for:

  • Women that are suffering from chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain due to large breasts
  • Difficulty participating in physical activities
  • Skin irritation or discomfort under the breasts
  • Difficulty finding well-fitting clothes
  • Emotional distress or self-consciousness about breast size

Breast reduction surgery can address these concerns, contributing to a positive outlook about one’s physical appearance and improved self-love. At Handa Aesthetics, we encourage our patients to schedule an initial consultation with one of our cosmetic surgeons to assess the best treatment route for them.

Why Choose Breast Reduction Surgery?

The decision to undergo breast reduction surgery is a personal one, but the potential benefits can be life-changing. Before you even consider undergoing the surgery, having an idea about the benefits can help you affirm the decision that you are making.

Following are a few positive outcomes you can expect:

  • Improved physical comfort and posture - By reducing both the size and weight of the breasts, the surgery can significantly alleviate neck, back, and shoulder pain. Not only does it improve posture, but contributes to a more comfortable well-being.

  • Enhanced participation in physical activities – If the size and appearance of your breasts were a roadblock for you and prevented you from participating in physical exercise and activities with greater ease.

  • Reduced risk of skin problems - The constant friction caused by rubbing skin folds under large breasts can lead to irritation, chafing, and even infection. The surgery significantly reduces these complications.

  • Improved self-esteem and body image—Feeling more comfortable and confident in your body allows for greater self-acceptance and a more positive outlook on life, which can be achieved after surgery.

What Can and Can’t Breast Reduction Surgery Do?

When you are considering undergoing a life-altering cosmetic surgery like reduction mammoplasty, it makes sense that you should proceed with a positive outlook and realistic expectations.

This is one of the reasons why our cosmetic surgeons at Handa Aesthetics prioritize open communication about what the surgery can and can’t do. Awareness of the same allows patients to make informed decisions regarding the procedure.

What Breast Reduction Surgery Can Do:

  • The main objective of the surgery is to reduce the size and appearance of breasts, providing tangible physical relief.
  • The procedure can reshape the remaining breast tissue and reposition the nipple-areola complex for a more aesthetically pleasing and balanced appearance.
  • By addressing the weight and size of the breasts, the surgery aims to significantly reduce or eliminate chronic pain and discomfort in the neck, back, and shoulders.
  • The combined benefits of improved physical comfort, body image, and ability to wear well-fitting clothes can significantly boost self-confidence and a more positive outlook on life.

What Breast Reduction Surgery Can’t Do:

  • While the surgeon strives for symmetry, achieving absolute perfection is not always possible. Minor asymmetries may exist after surgery.
  • Existing stretch marks might still be visible after surgery, and some scarring is inevitable.
  • Nipple sensation may be temporarily affected after surgery due to nerve disruption. However, in most cases, the sensation returns to normal within a few months.
  • While the surgery reduces overall breast size, future weight fluctuations can affect breast size to some extent.

We always recommend that our patients discuss the details of the surgery with their assigned plastic surgeon to get all the clarifications that they need.

How to Prepare for Breast Reduction Surgery?

Once you have mentally prepared yourself to undergo boob reduction, the next thing that you need to do is to prepare yourself for the consultation, comprehensive treatment plan, and, eventually the surgery.

Depending on your physical health and expectations, the surgeon will conduct a physical examination and prescribe blood and imaging tests. In some instances, mammograms are also recommended.

Discussion about anesthesia options

Since breast reduction surgery is a complex surgery, having a clear discussion about the anesthesia options is vital. You will be referred to an anaesthesiologist to decide the right route. In most cases, general anesthesia is usually the most common route.

Stop smoking

You’d be instructed to stop smoking at least 6-8 weeks before the date of the surgery. Since smoking can directly impair the healing process, it makes sense that you’d need to ditch such an unhealthy habit.

Arranging for post-surgical care

What is the Procedure of Breast Reduction Surgery?

Following are some of the general steps associated with the surgery:


Given the severity of the surgery, you will be put under general anesthesia to ensure that you are completely unconscious and comfortable throughout the surgery.

Removal of excess skin, tissue, and fat

Following the incision, the surgeon will carefully remove the excess breast tissue, fat, and skin according to the planned amount and location. Techniques like liposuction may be used with traditional excision to remove excess fat.

Reshaping and repositioning

The remainder of the breast tissue is then reshaped to create an aesthetically pleasing form. The nipple and areola complex might also be repositioned to a higher location on the breast.

Closing the incision

Once the surgeon is happy with the surgery and the results, the last step is closing the incisions with either sutures or semi-strips. The latter is used for minimal scarring.

If you are curious about any particular step in the surgery and want a better idea, our surgeons at Handa Aesthetics encourage you to ask all the relevant questions you have in mind.

Sometimes, temporary drainage tubes may be inserted to remove excess fluids from the surgical site.

To keep a record of the healing, you will be assigned regular follow-up appointments after the surgery. In case you experience any discomfort or symptoms that seem out of the ordinary, it is ideal to consult your surgeon immediately without delay.
