Abstract Background: The results of breast reduction surgery are usually reported in terms of anthropometric assessments. However the impact of surgery in quality of life is seldom informed. Aim: To assess the effects of breast reduction surgery on the quality of life of patients. Material and Methods: The "Breast-QReduction and Mastopexy Module" was prospectively applied to all women subjected to breast reductionsurgery in a University Hospital during one year. Results: Twenty women answered the survey in thepreoperative period and 20 in the postoperative period. The most commonly cutaneous pattern employedthat the inverted T in 10 women, followed by the Wise pattern in six patients. The most commonly usedpedicles were superior in 10 patients, followed by superomedial in seven patients. Mean excision weightwas 923 g (range 150-2850). Mean Breast Q score improved from 45 to 65%. Satisfaction with breastappearance improved from 31 to 83%, self-esteem from 39 to 80%, sexuality from 50 to 81% and physicalsymptoms decreased from 48 to 16%. There was a significant association between the magnitude of excision and improvement in physical symptoms. Conclusions: Quality of life improves notably in womenafter breast reduction surgery.
