breast reduction

A Breast Reduction is a procedure that takes an average duration of 1,5-3 hours. After the procedure, the patient is monitored as an inpatient for 24 hours.


After surgery, the patient will be hospitalized for 24 hours before being discharged. The patient will be accommodated in the Quirónsalud Málaga Hospital and will be provided with the best possible care.


A Breast Reduction is performed under general anesthesia.

Dr. Felipe Schmitt Sánchez will be performing the surgery in the certified operating rooms of the Hospital Quirónsalud Málaga.


The results can be monitored right after the surgery, although it takes about a month to six weeks for the patient to return to their normal routine.

Breast Reduction

A breast reduction, also called reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size more proportionate with your body.

Breast reduction is often performed to alleviate the discomfort connected with having unusually large breasts (macromastia), helping women feel more self-confident and more at ease with their body shape.

Exceptionally large breasts can cause both physical and psychological discomfort for many patients. Patients with macromastia often develop physical discomfort due to the weight of their breasts. The resulting pain can make it difficult to perform everyday physical activities. In addition to the physical discomfort of macromastia, some patients can also experience emotional distress or more serious psychological problems due to the size of their breasts. Breast reduction provides relief in these cases.

However, although breast reduction is often performed to correct medical problems, patients who do not suffer from macromastia symptoms but are simply dissatisfied with the size of their breasts may also choose to have a breast reduction for aesthetic reasons.

If you are thinking about a Breast Reduction (reduction mammaplasty), feel free to schedule an appointment with Dr. Felipe Schmitt Sánchez for a more individualized consultation and a detailed explanation of the surgery, possible risks, post-surgery complications, and follow-up care.
