A voluminous breast is certainly a symbol of femininity and sensuality. Yet those who have anbigbreast size are not always able to live with it. In fact, a thousand of women work every year to reduce breasts that are too large and the reasons are both aesthetic and functional.


In some cases, in fact, a prosperous breast represents a real aesthetic problem, a real reason of embarrassment capable of creating psychological problems and undermining self-esteem. At other times, heavy breast can lead to incorrect postures with consequent pain in the neck and back and damage to the spine, thus representing a functional problem. For these and other reasons, plastic surgery is used to reduce the breast by one or more sizes.

The operation, known as reductive mastoplasty, consists in the removal of a part of the adipose and glandular tissue of the sinuses and in the repositioning of the breast and nipple.

The operation aims not only to decrease the volume of the breasts but also to redefine the shape.

The biggest concern for women who choose to undergo reductive mastoplasty are future scars. In fact, for the reduction of the breasts, the cosmetic surgery hospitals makes peri-areolar incisions, vertically and sometimes one within the submammary sulcus which, if in the first months after the operation will still be evident, over time, thanks to the tight sutures and following the indications of the surgeon, they will be hardly noticeable.

As is now known, the number of men who go to the plastic surgeon is continuously increasing and for the most disparate requests. Outstanding among all is that of resolving gynecomastia, a term that indicates the excessive growth of the male breast. The gynecomastia has always existed, but nowadays men care about their physical appearance, and certainly the most developed breasts clash with the tone of a male body.

The causes of gynecomastia are different and must be carefully examined because it determines the most suitable surgical procedure to eliminate it. In fact, there are cases of gynecomastia characterized by an increase in the mammary gland, other cases in which there is an excess of fat located in the pectoral region and finally a "mixed" situation in which both problems are present.

In fact, although gynecomastia cannot be defined as a pathology, it greatly affects the self-esteem of many men, also compromising the couple's relationships.

Who is a good candidate?

As we have said before, more than for aesthetic reasons, most people go to plastic surgery hospitals in India due to physical problems. In most cases it is expected until the chest has fully developed, although it can also be done before if these physical problems are very important. This procedure is not recommended in women who want to breastfeed after pregnancy.

The most frequent reasons why a woman undergoes this reduction intervention are:

·        Pain in the upper back, neck or shoulders.

·        Recurrent rashes under the breasts.

·        Chronic nerve problems caused by poor posture, which cause numbness or tingling in the arms and hands.

·        Stretch marks on the breasts.

·        Respiratory problems.

·        Recurrent infections of breast cysts.

In addition, breasts are not only a source of food. They are also a distinctive feature of human sexuality and therefore, can be a great emotional burden for those women who have large breasts, especially for younger women.
