What are the benefits of breast reduction surgery?

26th September 2018

If your breasts are large or out of proportion to the rest of your body, you may suffer physical symptoms such as pain or discomfort.

Signs that your breasts are too heavy for your frame include:

  • Back pain

  • Neck pain

  • Pressure on your shoulders caused by your bra straps digging in

  • Poor posture

  • Numbness in your hands or fingers

  • Headaches

  • Shortness of breath

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms on a frequent basis, a breast reduction - or mammoplasty - could be very beneficial.


The procedure reduces the size, volume, shape and weight of your breasts, significantly easing the burden on your frame by reducing the glandular tissue and breast fat to a level that is both more comfortable and more aesthetically pleasing.

A mammoplasty is often performed alongside a breast uplift for optimum results.

Benefits of a breast reduction

There are many benefits of breast reduction surgery, including:

  1. Reduced back pain

The weight of heavy breasts can cause strain and discomfort in your back, shoulders and neck. Reducing the size - and therefore the weight of your breasts will alleviate this discomfort and reduce or even eliminate any pain.

  1. A well-proportioned body

If your breasts are too large for your frame, you can look out of proportion. A mammoplasty will reduce the size of your breasts, leaving them in proportion to the rest of your body

  1. The ability to exercise

If large or heavy breasts get in the way of a workout, causing you pain or discomfort, a reduced size can help to alleviate these symptoms, leaving you free to exercise painlessly

  1. Clothes that fit better

Large breasts often mean you have to buy tops that are too big for you, so you can fasten them without gaping or pulling. You may also feel you can’t wear high necked of fitted styles.

Smaller, well-proportioned breasts mean you can fit into clothes better and not have to worry about which styles you can carry off.

You’ll also feel the relief of no longer having our bra straps dig into your shoulders, leaving marks or even scarring in extreme cases.

  1. Improved hygiene

The lower fold of the breast can be susceptible to rashes or even dermatitis, particularly in the summer months when we sweat more. A reduction can reduce the chance of these rashes developing

  1. Minimal recovery time

Breast reduction surgery has a minimal downtime and there should be little pain associated with the procedure, meaning you can resume your usual routine fairly quickly.

You can expect to see the final results of your surgery within 6 - 9 months of your procedure.

If you feel that you would benefit from a mammoplasty, you should consult an experienced plastic surgeon, who can advise you on what is the best option for you.

A consultation with Mr Karidis will answer any questions you may have about a mammoplasty. You will discuss your desired outcome, your recovery and any possible side effects. You will also have the opportunity to see previous patients’ results following a breast reduction.
