Breast Reduction

The Effect of Breast Reduction

Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola. If your breasts are small or have lost volume - breast implants inserted in conjunction with mastopexy can increase both their firmness and their size.

The Breast Reduction Procedure

The most common procedure involves an anchor-shaped incision that circles the areola, extends downward, and follows the natural curve of the crease beneath the breast.

Best Candidates for Breast Reduction

Women who are troubled by very large, sagging breasts that restrict activities and cause physical discomfort. In most cases, breast reduction isn't performed until the patient's breasts are fully developed. The procedure can be done earlier however if large breasts are causing serious physical discomfort.

Breast reduction is not recommended for women who intend to breast-feed.

The best candidates are those who are mature enough to fully understand the procedure and have realistic expectations about the results.


All surgery carries risk, and you should be fully aware of the medical risks associated with this procedure before you consent to surgery. Your surgeon will discuss these risks with you during your consultation, and you are encouraged to ask questions if there is anything you do not understand. 

More details about your consultation and tips on coming to Bumrungrad in the Consultation section of our Getting Your Procedure page.

You will be required to sign a consent form before surgery stating that you have been informed of the risks involved; that you understand those risks; and that you accept those risks. This is standard hospital protocol and surgery will not be performed if you do not sign.

You can find hospital forms on our the Forms section of our Getting Your Procedure page.

It is your obligation to inform your surgeon of key medical information that may influence the outcome of your surgery or may increase the level of risk. These include medications you are taking, history of disease, medical complications, etc.

Risks and risk rates vary from patient to patient depending on a range of factors. No two people are alike. The risks listed below are possible risks associated with this type of surgery and are mentioned regardless of how remote the possibility:

Bleeding, infection, or reaction to the anesthesia. Future breast-feeding may not be possible, since the surgery removes many of the milk ducts leading to the nipples. Some patients may experience a permanent loss of feeling in their nipples or breasts. Rarely, the nipple and areola may lose their blood supply and the tissue will die.

The FAQ question "What are the risks of plastic and cosmetic surgery?" has additional details on risks and how to minimize them.
