Breast Reduction in ISCARE Prague

The breast reduction is performed to disproportionally large, sagging breasts to improve the shape and often ease some physical discomfort. The core of the surgery is in removing the excess skin and tissue on the bottom part of the breast, further modelling, and positioning the nipple with the areola upwards. Also, the areola can be reduced. Lifting the whole breast up and reshaping the contour delivers a younger look.

Before and after treatment

Before the surgery the patient undertakes an examination by our internist (blood test, ECG, evaluation of health status). The whole operation takes approximately 3-4 hours and is done under general anesthesia. Since this is a large, significant surgery, which includes removing of the tissue, the hospitalization is normally 2 days. After the surgery it is very important to wear a support bra for 6 weeks. The patients experience some pain for a few days after the surgery, which is treated by medication. For 2 months, no exposure to solar radiation (no sun bathing or solarium) is allowed. The patients get back to their normal activities after approximately 2-month time.

  • The incision is made around the areola and extended vertically in a shape of a keyhole. The excess skin and fat tissue are removed from the area of areola and both sides of the breast. All parts of the breast (nipple, areola, tissue) are placed in a higher position.


  • An inverted T shape incision is made around the areola and down to the bottom part of the breast. The fat tissue and excess skin is removed and the nipple is placed in a higher position.
