What is a breast reduction?

Breast hypertrophy is defined by an excessively large volume of the breasts, especially compared to the morphology of the patient. This excess volume is generally associated with breast sagging (breast ptosis) and sometimes with a certain degree of asymmetry.

Breast hypertrophy almost always involves physical and functional repercussions (neck, shoulder and back pain, discomfort when playing sports, clothing difficulties). There is also frequently a significant psychological impact.

Principle of intervention

The procedure removes excess breast tissue. A volume is maintained in harmony with the patient's silhouette and in accordance with her desires. This residual breast volume is ascended, concentrated, and remodelled.

The skin envelope must then be adapted, which requires removing excess skin in order to ensure good hold and shape for new breasts.

The edges of the skin cut in this way are then sutured: these sutures are the cause of the scars.

In general, it requires a periareolar scar, a vertical scar, and a horizontal scar made of marine ink.

“A center of excellence”

My approach is initially to listen to patients in order to determine if their expectations are realistic and achievable and if the risk-benefit ratio is in favor of an intervention.

Doctor Maxence Thomas performed breast reduction surgery on me in May. I am delighted with the result. Doctor Thomas is very available and very friendly. I felt confident right away and would highly recommend it.
