Breast Reduction Overview

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure used to remove excess fat, tissue and skin from the breasts. If you have large breasts, you might choose to have breast reduction surgery to ease discomfort or to achieve a breast size proportionate to your body.


Breast reduction surgery allows our plastic surgeon, Dr.GuruKarna, to deliver more natural and beautiful breasts to clients suffering from excessively large breasts. Over the years, our practice has been able to consult and deliver excellent results to countless individuals desiring smaller, shapelier breasts, as well as provide relief to those who experience the discomfort that large, heavy breasts can cause. Breast reduction surgery works by intelligently removing undue breast tissue and skin, ultimately leading women to enhance their shape and aesthetic size while spending less time frustrated with painful symptoms and the inability to wear certain clothes or perform specific exercises.

Best Candidates

Breast reduction is usually performed after breast development has stopped, since childbirth and breast-feeding may have significant and unpredictable effects on the size and shape of the breasts. Nevertheless, many women decide to undergo breast reduction surgery before having children. Overall, the best candidates for this surgery are women that demonstrate:


  • Breasts that are too large in proportion to a woman’s body frame

  • Back, neck and/or shoulder pain aggravated by the weight of the breasts

  • Indentions (grooving) in their shoulders from tight bra straps

  • Restriction of physical activity due to the size and weight of the breasts

Breast Reduction Procedure

During breast reduction surgery, liposuction is often a part of the process. It is important to maintain a good blood supply to the nipple areola complex as there is risk of discoloration and loss of sensation when blood flow is restricted. Our doctor is very careful to ensure that this risk is minimized as much as possible. We will remove the extra loose skin and tightened the underlying to form the newly shaped breasts. During surgery, we may use one of the following incision patterns:


  • One around the areola

  • One vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the breast crease

  • One horizontally in the breast crease

What to Expect

After breast reduction surgery, clients will immediately feel lighter on top. The amount of breast tissue removed during surgery will be based on the initial evaluation and the client’s preference. Often, the reduction results in a cup or two smaller from the original breast size. For the first several weeks, our doctor will recommend the use of a compression bra to protect the breasts. Clients may go back to work within 7-10 days and may resume physical activities (such as exercise) between 6-8 weeks post-operative. Nipple sensitivity will return gradually within the first year.

Breast Reduction FAQ's

What scars are left from breast reduction surgery?

Due to our specialism in liposuction, it is possible in some cases to perform breast reduction using liposuction techniques only. This technique is often known as ‘scarless breast reduction’ since the incisions required can be made in less prominent positions, such as under the arms, where they cannot been seen.


More typically, however, following traditional techniques you should expect a small degree of scarring. There are different techniques for breast reduction and the scars created will depend on the technique employed, as well as the patient in question and the size of the breasts being reduced. Most commonly you should expect some scarring around the nipple, across the bottom of the breast fold, and a vertical scar linking the nipple scar to the breast fold scar giving rise to the so-called ‘inverted T’ or anchor pattern. Some surgeons prefer to perform the operation omitting the breast fold scar giving rise to the ‘vertical scar’ reduction. Not everybody is necessarily eligible for this and it tends to be used for not such large breasts.


Regardless of which technique you undergo, Personiks Clinic is able to provide each and every one of its patients with access to one of Hyderabad's most advanced scar minimization and prevention teams following their procedure. Our nurses have decades of experience and will provide you with the tools and techniques to support your healing process as effectively as possible.


What are the main recommendations for breast reduction aftercare?

General advice is to take two weeks off work following breast reduction surgery, since swelling is greatest during this time and it is advisable to give wounds time to heal. During this period it is advisable to keep physical activity to a minimum or drive. It is, however, advisable to mobilise as soon as possible after breast reduction surgery.


If stitches need to be removed, this is generally carried out at about two weeks after the operation. At this stage dressings are removed and women are encouraged to wear comfortable crop tops or sports bras for support until any swelling and discomfort has resolved, after which they can start wearing normal bras in their new size – this may take a few weeks longer.


Massage and moisturizing are a vital process of breast reduction aftercare and expert advice will be given on the best techniques from our dedicated team.


How is a breast reduction procedure performed?

Breast reduction is usually performed under general anaesthetic as a day case procedure, meaning advanced sedation techniques are employed to enable you to recover more quickly after surgery and return home on the day of your procedure.


Whilst there are several breast reduction techniques, each essentially involves reducing a proportion of the breast volume via excision and reshaping the breast mound such that the nipple is lifted into a more normal position, while preserving the blood supply to the elevated nipple and areolar complex. The overall effect is a more ‘pert’ breast hanging in a more regular position.


Your surgeon will explain his or her preferred technique at your consultation and where the incision is to be placed accordingly.


Can you have breast reduction without scars?

All breast reduction techniques require an incision that will result in a scar that will likely be red and slightly raised in the weeks and months after your procedure, before fading completely.


Scar visibility can, however, be greatly impacted by the quality of the surgeon you choose, as well as the level of aftercare you receive. In the hands of a skilled surgeon the scar can be positioned very discreetly, whilst an expert scar minimization team can provide you with the tools and techniques to enhance the healing process. For example, scar the appearance can be reduced by regular moisturisation and massage techniques, all of which our dedicated team will advise our patients in the days following your procedure.

Breast reduction surgery recovery time: how long does it take?

Breast reduction recovery time varies from case to case but you should be able to return to your normal day-to-day activities after about two weeks. However, we recommend our patients be sensitive to their body and try not to do too much too soon, ceasing activities after or during which any pain is experienced.


We recommend temporary suspension of activities such as going to the gym, and practicing aerobics and sports that involve using your arms. Any activity that requires lifting your elbows above your shoulders should also be carefully monitored.
