• Breast Reduction in Spain


Breast reduction surgery is a very highly developed cosmetic surgery in Spain.

Doctor Jesús Benito Ruiz is known in Spain for having developed breast reduction techniques that leave practically no scar.

Breast reduction allows a woman whose breasts are too large to make them  more proportional to the rest of her body. Surgery also avoids serious problems such as back, neck and shoulder pain and skin irritation.

Breast reduction surgery needs a quite complex treatment. It requires a surgeon with wide experience and who is at the forefront in the use of the most advanced techniques to achieve nicely shaped and natural looking breasts.

What breast reduction techniques are used at present?

Breast reduction surgery is a surgical procedure to reduce the size of the breasts, by means of the removal of fat, breast tissue and skin, making them smaller, lighter and firmer.

The size of the areola can also be reduced. Until not long ago, the breast reduction technique left a scar in the shape of an inverted T which spoiled the finished result.

Currently, techniques have been developed that leave practically no scar.

If the amount to remove is low, the intervention can be performed by means of a small excision that only leaves a scar around the areola. For older women with a higher body fat composition, liposuction could be an alternative which doesn’t leave scars. If there is more volume and the breast is sagging more, a technique is used which leaves only one vertical scar that is practically invisible.

It is only in very large breasts that require a significant reduction in the volume is it necessary to leave a scar in the shape of a T. Although the resulting shape is not ideal, it has several advantages: recovery is faster and scarring is minimal.

The technique to be used will be evaluated with the patient during the first consultation, where they will also be able to see similar cases to their own and the results achieved.

Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anaesthetic. Breast reduction takes between 2 and 4 hours. It requires admission to the clinic for one or two days. After breast reduction it is recommended that you don’t do any exertion or pick up weights for 15 days. Furthermore, a bra will need to be worn for the first month to keep the breast in its new position and allow the scarring to retract.

After breast reduction surgery, there are often bruises and swelling in the postoperative period. In some cases there could be a reduction or loss of sensitivity in one or both areolas which is normally recovered over time.

How much does breast reduction surgery cost?

This is one of the first questions that our patients ask. Breast reduction surgery cost depends on many factors. Without meeting the patient we don’t offer approximate prices as each patient is a different case. But we know that the economic factor is important when it comes to making a decision. Therefore, we offer the possibility for the patient to come to our facilities for a first free no-obligation visit. The patient can consult with the surgeon regarding all their doubts and worries. According to the characteristics of each patient, we will offer the best solution for each case.

How will I look after breast reduction surgery?

This is a recurring question that patients tend to ask. It’s logical that when a person decides to go in for breast reduction surgery there is a feeling of uncertainty. And here is where computer simulations come into play as they let you see a before & after result. Recent progress in photography software allows the patient to get an idea of what will be the final result that they are trying to get after the surgery.

When the surgeons use the computer simulation, it is usually so that the patient and surgeon reach an agreement on the result that they want to achieve with the surgery. But the computer simulation should in no way be considered as what the final result will be.

Undoubtedly the surgeons and the patients are the most interested in getting the desired result. But we should not forget that the plastic surgery involves working with living tissue. To change the appearance of something specific on the computer is a matter of seconds, but the computer doesn’t take into account the quality of the tissue, the thickness of the skin, how aged the skin is, and the wound healing of the tissues during the procedure nor the possible complications.

In this regard, the majority of the scientific societies don’t recommend the publication of before/after images on web pages, as there is always the question as to whether they have been manipulated. It is precisely for the adherence to these ethical principles and to avoid speculation that we don’t show photos on our website.
