Breast Reduction

Increasing breast size is not what everyone desires. Sometimes, all you need is a little less volume to feel more comfortable in your skin.

What is it?

For some, a large bust is more of a problem rather than a desired goal. In order to achieve a breast size that is more suitable to your physique, breast reduction is often sought by patients. The excess breast fat is removed in order to create a reduced breast size and volume.

Some of the benefits of breast reduction surgery include:

  • Relieve back pain
  • Relieve pain in neck and shoulders due to heavy breasts
  • Larger wardrobe options
  • Reduced weight due to the removal of excess breast fat
  • Comfort

How the Procedure Works

  • Before & Preparation

Preparing for surgery can be a scary process. That is why we aim to provide our patients with as much guidance and help as we can offer to relieve their anxiety and make this a smooth process for them.
Before the surgery, the patient must not smoke for at least a month. The doctor may ask the patient to take or stop taking some medications before the procedure. Thus it is vital for the patient to provide their entire medical history and list of medications that they may be taking. The patient should also have arrangements made regarding transportation to and from the clinic as they may be under anesthesia and medication.

  • During the Procedure

To minimize the size and weight of the breast, the plastic surgeon removes skin, glandular tissue, and fat. A breast reduction typically requires three incisions. The first one will revolve around the area around the nipple known as the areola. The breast crease is reached by the second incision, which starts at the areola. The third incision mimics the breast crease’s natural contour. After the incisions are created, the nipple is then moved while still connected to its original blood and nerve supply. If necessary, the areola is decreased by removing skin from the edge. Then, the underlying breast tissue is sculpted, raised, and decreased. In order to contour the newly reduced breast, the incisions are finally joined together. The skin is closed with sutures, skin adhesives, and/or surgical tape.

  • Aftercare & Recovery

Your recovery and final results from breast reduction surgery depend on how well you handle the aftercare. You’ll be told to use warm water and mild, fragrance-free soap to gently wash your incisions. After surgery, have someone pick you up and assist you at home for one to two days. Get lots of sleep and eat a healthy diet. Stool softeners can be used to treat constipation, which is a side effect of several of the drugs provided after surgery. For at least three weeks following surgery, we want you to refrain from any strenuous or aerobic activities. In order to prevent bleeding, bruising, and swelling, do this. You may experience tightness in the chest area and sporadic shooting pains after breast reduction surgery. Despite the fact that you must relax and take care, you shouldn’t spend this first week in bed. Short walks and a gradual increase in activity should be a part of your recuperation. Most women heal almost completely within a month of having surgery. Despite this, doctors encourage patients to continue being cautious about their incisions and the amount of exercise.

Am I a good Candidate?

A person who is healthy, a non-smoker, and at a steady weight is a suitable candidate for breast reduction surgery. Furthermore, you must not be breastfeeding or pregnant. Other indications that you may require breast reduction surgery include dissatisfaction with large and heavy breasts; breast weight causing neck or back pain and discomfort; difficulty breathing; neck and backaches; stasis ulcers or skin irritation due to pressure; difficulty finding clothes that fit; chronic under-breast rashes and/or shoulder marks from bra straps; and poor posture as a result of the weight of the breasts.

If you suffer from extreme back, neck, and shoulder pain along with the discomfort of having large breasts, this procedure is an effective way for you to say bye to all these problems and feel like yourself again.

Side Effects & Risks

Pain, inflammation, infection, bleeding, loss of nipple sensitivity, asymmetry, subpar wound healing, and scarring are the most frequent dangers and adverse effects of breast reduction surgery. Blood clots, nerve damage, and damaged blood vessels are additional uncommon but dangerous dangers. There is also a chance of breast asymmetries and/or unsatisfactory outcomes, which can necessitate additional surgery.
