Large and ptosic breast could represent a serious problem, aesthetic, functional (affecting posture and limiting the everyday life) and hygienic (leading to skin inflammation and ulceration at the inframammary fold).
Breast reduction aims to reduce breast volume, correct ptosis, asymmetries and to restore a harmonic breast profile.
The surgical procedures are similar breast lift. The residual mammary gland can be employed as an “auto-implant” to increase breast projection and to fulfill the upper quadrants that often result hypoplastic due to glandular ptosis.
