Breast Reduction im Mainz

A well-formed, full-bodied breast is a special beauty ideal, but if the breasts are too lush and overly large, the suffering of women is immense. Because oversized breasts can not only lead to physical discomfort such as postural disorders, tension in the shoulder and head area and headaches or limit the affected in their sporting activity, but also represent a strong mental stress. The desire for a breast reduction is therefore understandable.

In such cases, it is advisable and worthwhile to consider breast reduction. This can help to adapt the individual breast size to the desired body image and improve the appearance and the individual body feeling. In this way, the symptoms caused by size are alleviated and the self-esteem is strengthened, a breast surgery is absolutely effective in the case of appropriate complaints.

Surgical techniques for breast reduction

Surgical techniques

For the procedure of breast reduction in our Mainz FONTANA KLINIK different starting situations require different cutting techniques:

  • a vertical cut around the nipple (“keyhole pattern”)
  • a cut around the nipple, which runs vertically downwards with an additional short cut in the breast fold (“L-shaped”)
  • a cut around the nipple, which runs vertically downwards with another cut throughout the course of the breast fold (“T-shaped”)

Individual cut

Of course, what kind of cut management is the right choice for you? Dr. Niermann and his colleagues, after a detailed investigation, will explain in detail. The incision is dependent on individual factors such as size and volume of the breast, width of the breast base and skin condition. Your treating physician will always choose the incision so that any scars that develop are small and inconspicuous.

During the procedure, excess glandular and fatty tissue in the lower chest area is removed, then the nipple displaced upwards and possibly reduced in size. In some cases, breast reduction is associated with chest liposuction to improve the outcome in a very wide breast.

Patients are very satisfied after a breast reduction at FONTANA KLINIK in Mainz, because state-of-the-art procedures make the procedure safe, efficient and uncomplicated. Of course, your attending physician will discuss in detail and individually with you the general and specific risks that each surgical procedure naturally entails.
