Breast reduction

Breast hypertrophy is defined as too large a volume of the breasts compared to the patient’s morphology. This excess of volume, and therefore of weight, alters the elasticity of the tissues and ends up causing ptosis (fall) of the breasts.

Breast reduction aims to reduce pain (back, shoulder, neck), to relieve irritation problems under the breast. This is why this intervention is partially covered by social security. At least 300 g per breast must be removed for the procedure to be covered otherwise the procedure is considered aesthetic.

The ideal is to continue this surgical act by sessions of LED in order to improve the quality of the scars and to avoid the formation of keloids thanks to the cold light of the LED.

This intervention can be performed from the age of 16 in important forms. Hypertrophy must be treated early to avoid irreversible strain on the back (osteoarthritis).
