Say goodbye to heavy breast and gain back your confidence


Gigantomastia or breast hypertrophy is a phenomenon that can affect a woman during adolescence or even after significant weight gain.

Breast reduction is a procedure performed not only for cosmetic purposes but mainly for relieving from the symptoms above. Another reason that accentuates the importance of this procedure is better examination of the breast both with palpation and imaging methods such as mammograms, ultrasound, etc. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia.

During the procedure excess mammary gland is removed, while droopy breasts are corrected achieving smaller, lighter and more symmetrical breasts compared with the rest of the body, giving wellness, freedom of movements and better chest control is achieved. The patient gets smaller and lighter breasts that are symmetric to the rest of the body.

If the procedure is performed by an experienced and cautious plastic surgeon, the chances of jeopardising the patient’s ability to breast-feed and nipple sensitivity are negligible.

During the breast reduction procedure, the parts of the gland that are removed are sent out for pathological examination. It is not rare to identify suspicious formations during the examination of mammary gland samples. After surgery the patient may easily palpate her breasts and identify possible abnormalities in primary stage. Moreover, mammography in patients with gigantomastia who underwent breast reduction, is even more accurate, particularly in the part of the mammary gland that is close to the armpit.

Based on international protocols, Dr Athanasiou and the ABH Medical Group team, while planning any chest surgery, perform extensive clinical assessment and evaluation in collaboration with the co-operating specialized breast unit.
