Breast Reduction Surgery in Jumeirah, Dubai

Do you have heavy breasts causing neck and back pain? Do you suffer from the bra straps cutting deep in the shoulder? A Breast reduction surgery can handle these problems by reducing the weight of the breasts – restoring the normal posture and eliminating the painful muscle contraction along the spinal column.


Before The Breast Reduction Procedure

Our surgeon will listen carefully to your wishes and examines your breasts before breast reduction surgery. Taking into account your expectations, the glandular structure, and the fatty tissues of your breasts, he makes a custom made plan for you. Do not hesitate to ask all your questions during the consultation! The surgeon will also check for certain medical conditions that could limit the extension of the breast reduction surgery (such as uncontrolled high blood pressure, blood clotting problems) because your safety is very important for us.

Our surgeon will give you information about the breast reduction procedure and its influence on breastfeeding. He helps you to choose the proper size which fit your body proportions the best. A breast lift and nipple reduction is always an essential part of the procedure.

You will also visit the anesthesiologist, who would give information about the anesthesia during the breast reduction procedure and the pain management after the surgery.

During The Breast Reduction Procedure

Most breast reduction surgeries are performed under general anesthesia, but sometimes local anesthesia with sedation can be used.

In most of the cases during the breast reduction surgery, the incision is made around the areola, in the submammary fold and in the vertical line connecting them, resulting in an ‚anchor‘ or ‚inverted T‘ shaped scar. In some selected cases the long horizontal scar could be avoided (the so called ‚short scar‘ or ‚lollipop‘ technique) or even the vertical scar could be abandoned (‚periareolar‘ technique). After the removal of the excess glandular and fatty tissue and skin, the breast are remodeled in their new shape. Once both sides are complete, the surgeon checks the symmetry and the position of the nipples and closes the wound.

At the end of the breast reduction surgery you will get an elastic bra to prevent the swelling and hold the implants in place.

After The Breast Reduction Procedure

Having pain after the breast reduction surgery is normal, especially in the first two days, although it can be lessened with the pain medication prescribed by our surgeon or the attending anesthetist. Normally there is some bruising, and the breasts are swollen after the breast reduction surgery.

  • Two to three days – the breasts are sensitive, refrain from the movements of the arms. The elastic bra should be kept on
  • Ten days to two weeks – return to work. Stitches are removed
  • Six weeks – more strenuous activities can be resumed, the elastic bra could be replaced with a normal one, scars are still visible, redness fades away
  • One year or more – your breasts will have settled into their final appearance, scars are barely visible, the sensitivity of the nipple return to normal.

Duration of results: The volume is permanently reduced, although it could change with weight loss or gain. The shape of the breast could change with time.

Your recovery experience, risks, and possible complications;

  • Temporary swelling, bruising
  • Post-operative bleeding that normally doesn’t require surgery.
  • Infection – chance is low
  • Wound disruption – commonly occurs where the three scars meet in the submammary fold – in most of the cases heals spontaneously
  • A permanent change in the sensitivity of the nipples – mostly after large reduction volume or repeated surgeries
  • Unexpected aesthetic result requiring additional surgery.
