Breast reduction reduces the volume of your breasts while at the same time reshaping and lifting them.
This procedure literally takes weight off your chest. It has a cosmetic but also a significant functional benefit. It can improve many physical symptoms like neck, shoulder, back and chest pain, bra grooving, tension headaches as well as irritation and infection in the breast folds.
To have larger breasts may seem like a blessing to others. However, in many cases, large breasts can cause a myriad of physical and emotional issues; from back ache, neck and shoulder pain, bra grooving, tension headaches, soreness and infection under breast crease folds, to embarrassment and upset from insensitive remarks or lingering looks. Breast reduction surgery reduces the volume of your breasts, at the same time, re-shaping and lifting them, for comfort and physical wellbeing, better fitting clothing and a renewed confidence. Dr Veerle Rotsaert offers breast reduction for anyone who is fit and well, who wishes to improve their appearance and quality of life.
Through this procedure breast volume and breast weight is reduced whilst at the same time reshaping and repositioning the breasts, while respecting your frame and making sure your new size suits your figure. The scarring pattern depends on your breast size and shape but is usually a combination of a scar around the areola, a horizontal scar in the breast fold and a vertical scar linking these two. This is the so-called anchor shaped scar.
This is a commonly performed procedure by Dr. Rotsaert and patients who have undergone breast reduction surgery are generally the happiest and most grateful patients in the plastic surgery universe.
Having worked in major breast units Dr. Rotsaert will tell you all about certain risks and complications that come with this procedure. Your surgical journey starts with a thorough consultation and proper assessment of your breasts. The desired size, treatment goals and outcomes will be determined during your consultation.
