What is breast reduction?

JW’s breast reduction that considers your health and beautiful body shape

Extremely large breasts make you look dull and informal. Heavy breasts easily sag and cause eczema and pain to the neck, back, and shoulders.
Breast reduction is the plastic surgery procedure for reducing the size and shape of large and sagging breasts. Once a proper procedure is provided, patients are highly satisfied, compared to any other operations. Breast reduction, known as one of the most difficult operations in mammoplasty, should be performed by skilled specialists with extensive experience.

The features of JW’s breast reduction
  • 01 Minimized tissue damages In order to minimize nerve damage, we perform breast reduction accurately through monitoring the nerves and blood vessels of the breasts.
  • 02 No giant and sagging breasts! Imagine yourself with beautiful and resilient breasts! Our well-experienced specialists create resilient and natural-looking breasts.
  • 03 No scarring! Breast reduction is known as a much more difficult operation than breast augmentation. Therefore, it should be performed by specialists with extensive experience to minimize scarring and maximize patient’s satisfaction.
  • 04 No pain! Rapid recovery! We minimize incisions for less pain and rapid recovery from an operation.
We recommend breast reduction to the following people.
  • 01Those who have extremely large breasts
  • 02Those who have pains in the shoulders, neck, and back or eczema under the breasts due to macromastia
  • 03Those who have sagging breasts due to pregnancy, childbirth, or extreme dieting
Surgical procedure

The key to the success in breast reduction is scarring. If the breast size needs to be slightly reduced, only small incisions are made around the areola. If the patient, however, has extremely large breasts, an operation may leave vertical scars on the breasts.
JW Plastic Surgery uses new breast reduction techniques that do not leave vertical scars for patient satisfaction.



Surgical procedures by incision type


  • Periareolar incision

  • - Effective for those whose breasts are not extremely large

    - Short surgical duration and less scars
  • Vertical incision

  • - More effective for creating a beautiful breast shape than periareolar incision

    - Less scars than inverted T-shaped incision
  • Inverted T-shaped incision

  • - Applicable for macromastia/breast ptosis

    - Able to reduce the largest volume
  • Incision without vertical scars

  • - Applicable for extremely large breasts

    - No vertical scars

    - The breast shape becomes slightly flat, compared to inverted T-shaped incision.
Recovery from breast reduction
  • 01You may experience pain for one or two days after an operation, but it can be relieved with medications.
  • 02Dressing is removed two days after an operation. You should wear a soft brassiere for several weeks.
  • 03Swelling and discoloration on the surgical sites will disappear within a few days. Stitches will be removed one week after an operation.

02With 16 years of Experiences of Knowhow in autoplasty

Smooth liposuction

Some patients experience bumpy and uneven skin after liposuction on their thighs or abdomen. JW Plastic Surgery performs liposuction in the shape of a fan to create smooth body lines.

High survival rates through precise transfer

In traditional autoplasty procedures, a lump of fat is used for grafting. However, JW Plastic Surgery applies a micro fat transfer. After separating fat, it is grafted under the skin using a micro syringe. This procedure minimizes pain but maximizes the survival rate of transferred fat.
