Breast reduction

The surgery is made for large and sagging breasts. During the surgery the breast is uplifted, the excessive volume removed and re-shaped. In addition, the nipple is put out together with the areola which can also be reduced.  

The surgery is preceded by a detailed consultation with the surgeon who explains positioning of the scars, potential risks of the procedure and the postoperative process.

You will need preoperative examination which includes blood tests, ECG and evaluation of the state of your health. This examination will be performed by your GP, or it will be provided by our clinic. One week before the surgery it is necessary to stop taking any medicines such as Acylpyrin, Aspirin, Mironal which impair blood coagulation.

The patient is admitted to the clinic on an empty stomach between 8 - 9 a.m. on the day of surgery. It is not allowed to eat or drink anything since the midnight. Take with you the preoperative examination results, nightclothes, slippers, toiletries. Do not bring any jewels and valuables to the clinic.

The surgery may take about 2-3 hours. You will stay at the clinic for 2 days on average and you may bring an accompanying person to stay with you. Please arrange that somebody drives you home on your discharge from the clinic as it is not advisable to drive a car. The wound is redressed at the clinic usually in one week. If you decide to spend this time of convalescence in Karlovy Vary, the staff of the clinic will arrange accommodation for you.

Cosmetic surgery is not covered by health insurance policies and the sickness note cannot be issued. After the breast reduction you will be able to return to work in about one week.

It is necessary to wear a special elastic bra for four weeks and sports should be avoided.

The scars must not be exposed to the sun /not even in solarium/

 All complications are prevented during the preoperative preparation; some may occur very rarely, but they can never be completely ruled out before the surgery. Also the scar quality cannot be fully guaranteed beforehand, as this depends on the particular healing type of each individual. It is impossible to provide a 100% guarantee regarding the surgery result. The statistics worldwide state 5 – 10% of complications. As a result of these a corrective surgery may be necessary.
