Breast reduction

What is breast reduction?

Breast reduction consists in removing excess skin, fat, and mammary tissue. Generally, the procedure involves the excision of skin and part of the breast at the same time. As part of the procedure, the breast is raised and the nipple repositioned.

Generally, this procedure is used to correct physical problems associated with overly large or heavy breasts.

Please note that Quebec’s Régie de l’assurance maladie covers the cost of the procedurewhenever breast size and weight cause health problems. In such cases, the procedure must comply with a weight-reduction guideline. In such a case, the surgery should be done in an hospital environment.

Do you have overly heavy breasts?

Call for an appointment. Following a medical examination, Dr Chagnon will be able to determine if breast reduction is the best solution for you.

What results can I expect from a breast reduction procedure?

Breast reduction is designed to reduce back, shoulder, and neck pain in women with overly large and heavy breasts. It also relieves skin irritation below the breasts.

Women who undergo the procedure feel more comfortable and feel better about themselves. They find it easier to find clothes that fit and can pursue sports activities that were unattainable previously.

What happens during the procedure?

The surgery is performed using general anesthesia.

Incisions are made to remove excess skin and extract excess fat and mammary tissue.

A circular incision is made around the nipple, followed by a vertical incision below the nipple. A third incision is made horizontally at the crease below the breast.

Following the procedure, you should avoid excessive arm movements for a few days. Be sure to ease into daily activities gradually. Avoid physical exercise for two to three weeks.
