Breast Reduction

Quick Information

Understanding Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure aimed at achieving more balanced and aesthetically pleasing breasts in relation to a woman’s overall body. This surgery involves removing excess fat, breast tissue, and skin from the breasts. Beyond enhancing appearance, breast reduction also alleviates physical discomfort caused by large breasts, which can lead to pain in the back, neck, and shoulders, as well as difficulties during physical activities. The benefits of breast reduction surgery extend to physical well-being, appearance, and emotional confidence.

Breast reduction surgery can be undertaken at any age, but it is typically recommended after the breasts have fully developed, usually around 16 or 18 years of age.

The primary objective of breast reduction surgery is to create breasts that are more proportionate and comfortable for the individual’s body. Dr. Yasser Khattab will provide a comprehensive understanding of the advantages and minimal limitations associated with breast reduction surgery in Dubai during your consultation.

Understanding Breast Reduction

Before undergoing a breast reduction procedure, it’s important to be aware of both the benefits and limitations. Dr. Yasser Khattab will provide you with detailed information about the surgery. Here are some common advantages and potential limitations of breast reduction surgery in Dubai:


  • Your breasts will be more proportionate to your body and feel firmer.
  • The surgery can alleviate neck, back, and shoulder pain, as well as improve breathing and physical activity.
  • You’ll achieve more defined contours and be able to wear better-fitting clothes.


  • Decreased sensation may occur in certain areas, including the nipples and areolas.
  • Perfect symmetry may not be achieved, leading to potential anomalies in the nipples and areolas.
  • Breastfeeding might be impacted after the procedure.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Yasser Khattab will guide you through the decision-making process and help you understand how this procedure could enhance your life.

Qualifying for Breast Reduction Surgery

Before considering breast reduction surgery, Dr. Yasser Khattab will assess your eligibility based on the following factors:

Positive Factors:

  • Breast anatomy, including conditions like tuberous breasts and lump occurrences.
  • Breast asymmetry.
  • Abnormal or disproportionate areola size.
  • Nipples that point downward.
  • Maintaining a stable weight.

Disqualifying Factors:

  • Suspicion of a cancerous lump.
  • Pregnancy.
  • Tendency for excessive bleeding.
  • Presence of severe complications within the thoracic cavity.
  • If you’re planning to have children soon, it’s advisable to wait until after pregnancy and breastfeeding to ensure optimal results in terms of size and appearance. Dr. Yasser Khattab will guide you through the best options during your consultation.

Breast Reduction Approaches

When it comes to breast reduction, Dr. Yasser Khattab employs specific methods to achieve optimal results with minimal scarring. These techniques are selected based on your unique situation and desired outcome. It’s important to note that scars from these methods typically take a few months to fully heal. Below are the different breast reduction techniques:

Liposuction: In certain cases, liposuction alone can effectively reduce breast size without leaving noticeable scars. This option is suitable for individuals seeking a minor reduction, with good skin elasticity and without significant sagging. Liposuction focuses on removing excess fat rather than breast tissue.

Vertical or Lollipop Incision: This approach involves two incisions – one encircling the areola’s edge and another vertically from the lower areola edge to the inframammary fold. It’s ideal for those who require a moderate reduction and lift in breast size.

Inverted T or Anchor Incision: An inverted T or anchor scar technique involves three incisions – one around the areola’s edge, another between the lower areola and the inframammary fold, and a third along the inframammary fold (size varies depending on the case). This more comprehensive method allows for substantial tissue removal and reshaping, making it suitable for significant breast reduction and reshaping needs.

Corrections in Breast Reduction Surgery

When considering breast reduction surgery in Dubai with Dr. Yasser Khattab, you’ll discuss the specific corrections that can be achieved in conjunction with the procedure. Breast reduction surgery encompasses several important corrections, including:

Breast Reduction and Lift in One Procedure:

For women seeking both a reduction in breast size and an enhanced appearance, breast reduction surgery is an ideal choice. However, it’s important to address potential breast sagging that can result from reduction. This is addressed by incorporating a breast lift, which is included in all reduction surgeries performed through Vertical or Inverted T incisions.

Areolas That Have Been Expanded:

Breast reduction surgery also provides the opportunity to reshape and resize enlarged areolas. After the reduction, the surgeon will reshape the areolas to ensure they have a more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Overall Size Reduction:

The primary objective of breast reduction is to achieve a well-proportioned, firm, and symmetrical breast appearance. This involves reducing overall breast size and eliminating any excess, sagging skin, resulting in breasts that harmoniously align with your body’s contours.

What to Expect from Breast Reduction Surgery in Dubai?

If you’re considering breast reduction surgery with Dr. Yasser Khattab, here’s what you can expect and the positive changes it can bring to your life:

Improved Appearance:

Breast reduction surgery can greatly enhance a woman’s appearance by creating a more balanced and natural breast size. This boost in proportionality often leads to increased self-confidence and improved self-esteem. Many women find they can comfortably wear clothing styles they couldn’t before, such as t-shirts and smaller tops.

Enhanced Comfort:

The benefits extend to comfort as well. By reducing breast size, improvements in posture are common, and issues like head, back, and neck pain are often alleviated. Skin irritation and other discomforts associated with excessively large breasts also tend to improve or even disappear after breast reduction surgery.

Enhanced Quality of Life:

Large and heavy breasts can hinder certain physical activities, including exercise. With breast reduction surgery, you’ll experience lighter, more proportionate breasts, which can enhance your ability to engage in various activities. This improvement in physical comfort translates to an overall better quality of life.
