When is a breast reduction advisable?

Although breast reduction is theoretically possible at any age, it is advisable to wait until breast growth is complete before having a breast reduction. Significant physical changes, such as marked weight loss or pregnancy, should also be considered when planning a breast reduction surgery. Substantial weight fluctuations as well as pregnancy and breastfeeding can have an unpredictable effect on the breasts.

Will I still be able to breastfeed after breast reduction surgery?

The ability to breastfeed is generally retained after a breast reduction, as the connection between the milk ducts or the milk-producing breast gland tissue and the nipple stays intact.

Does breast reduction surgery change the nipples?

Breast reduction surgery usually reduces the size of the nipples and adjusts their diameter to suit the newly formed breasts.

Are the costs of a breast reduction covered by statutory health insurance?

Especially for women with very large breasts that can have negative effects on their health, statutory health insurance may cover the costs of breast reduction surgery. The following criteria must be met for costs to be covered:

  • Expected reduction of at least 500 to 800 grams of tissue per breast.
  • Documented complaints that are clearly attributable to the breast, including a physiotherapist’s report.
  • Normal weight, BMI of less than 25 kg/m2
