Breast reduction

Breast reduction surgery or reduction mammoplasty is an operative procedure that removes a greater amount of tissue in the breast. This operation is done for aesthetic and functional reasons. A person with large breasts often suffers from neck pain and back pain, difficulty when moving, cannot play sports and has inflammation of the skin under the breasts. It also leaves impact on the spine and occurrence of pain in the neck. 

About the procedure

In most cases, breast reduction surgery is done for health reasons. Breasts weigh more than 400 grams and can cause neck pain and back pain, stress on your spine and give rise to osteoporosis. After consulting a physician, each patient is carefully examined, the chest is measured and a basic assessment is given. During breast reduction surgery in the Bagatin Clinic we use a technique called vertical Breast reduction - mammoplasty.

How do you prepare?

Come to consultations at Bagatin Clinic prepared to talk about your health. You need to talk about diseases that you suffered from, the current state of health, allergies to medications, breast biopsies, and medications you are taking. It is important to provide complete information. Tell Dr. Bagatin if you are planning to go on a drastic diet, especially if you notice that your breasts reduced from your diet. Maybe the  doctor will recommend you to first stabilize the weight, and then come to surgery. The doctor will recommend  that you make a basic mammogram prior to the operation, and other mammography examinations a year after the surgery. The previously described examinations can detect any future changes in tissue. After breast reduction you will still exam breasts by yourself. Breast reduction surgery will reduce the chance of breast cancer.

Six weeks before the procedure it is necessary to stop smoking. Two weeks prior to the operation  stop taking aspirins, herbal supplements or any other supplements, and certain medications that inhibit the formation of inflammation, because their contents can cause significant bleeding.

12 to 24 hours before the procedure: make sure to use antibacterial soap and let the foam of the antibacterial soap remain for about 10 minutes on the part of the body that will undergo surgery in the evening, the day before the procedure, and in the morning.
