Overly large breasts can cause to have both health and emotional problems. A popular misconception is that only women with very large breasts are good candidates for breast reduction. Actually, any women with breasts that are too large for their frame, are good candidates for the procedure.

About the procedure

What is Breast Reduction? Breast Reduction Surgery is advised for women who have heavy and large breasts. Due to this fact, many of them suffer from physical pain and embarrassment before surgery. The surgery can be performed from the late teens into the 70s. Usually, plastic surgeons advise undergoing breast reduction in case a client doesn’t plan any more pregnancies in the future. Breast Reduction is performed under general anaesthetic. Breast reduction, technically known as mammoplasty, is a surgical technique reducing the breast size, achieving a smaller and firmer breast in proportion to the rest of the body. Apart from aesthetic considerations, breast reduction surgery may also relieve related physical problems, such as backache, neck ache and even psychological problems that can affect personal relationships. The surgery is often combined with a breast lift (breast modulation, mastopexy), to achieve the best result for the patient. A breast lift is a surgical technique, consisting of lifting and improving the existing shape of the breast. Pregnancy and the natural ageing process often affect the firmness of the breast. Breast lift is an ideal technique to reverse this process. Reasons for getting a Breast Reduction: Breast reduction can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily change your looks to match your ideal or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have cosmetic surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon. The best candidates for breast reduction are women who are looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look. If you’re physically healthy and realistic in your expectations, you may be a good candidate.

Before, during & after

Before surgery: You can have breast reduction surgery at any age — sometimes even as a teenager. But if your breasts aren’t yet fully developed, you might need a second surgery later in life. You might postpone breast reduction surgery if you have certain future plans, such as: - Childbirth. If you haven’t started a family or your family isn’t yet complete, you might wait until pregnancy isn’t an issue. Breast-feeding might be challenging after breast reduction surgery — although certain surgical techniques can help preserve your ability to breast-feed. - Weight loss. If you are interested in losing weight by changing your diet and starting an exercise program, you might wait to decide if reduction mammoplasty is for you. Losing weight can often result in changes to your breast size.
Operation Breast Reduction surgery is performed under general anaesthetic. The plastic surgeon removes excess fat, glandular tissue and skin that contribute to large, pendulous breasts. In order to achieve the desired shape, the surgeon makes anchor-like incisions, creating a vertical line downwards from the areola (the coloured area around the nipple) and the horizontal line beneath the breast. The areola, its blood vessels and nerves are repositioned together in most cases. The vertical incisions are brought together to reshape the now smaller breasts. Occasionally, in significant reductions, it might be necessary to separate the areola totally and relocate it. The size of the areola can also be reduced if needed. The plastic surgeon will make the decision as to the most appropriate technique to use. The scars will not be visible in clothing or most swimwear. Immediately after the surgery, the scars will be red, firm and raised. The scars will mature, fade, and soften within 3–12 months. Many scars fade and become nearly invisible, but other scars may become wide and raised. Final scar appearance cannot be predicted prior to surgery.
Recovery: - The patient will usually stay at the cosmetic surgery clinic for about 1 night and will wear a compression bandage and a special surgical support bra. This bra is already included in the price of breast reduction. This bra should be worn at all times (even at night) for 14 days to 3 weeks. If a drain is introduced during the surgery, it is removed within 24 hours. - It is not possible to sleep on the abdomen for a period of 5 weeks. Within a few days, you can shower. When you will be released from the clinic you will be given instructions from the plastic surgeons on how to exchange the dressings. - You will be able to resume everyday activities after a few days but must avoid lifting objects over the head or making fast movements during the first 4–6 weeks. If you have small children who require a lot of lifting, you need to plan additional help during the initial recovery period. - The individual post-operative process is very important and the client can participate in that by following the instructions given by the plastic surgeon and the healthy diet. - After 2 weeks, the patient can return to everyday activities, avoiding strong physical efforts. Any bruising and swelling will usually dissipate within 1–2 months. Frequently Asked Questions FAQ: How will I feel after Breast Reduction Surgery? - After the Breast Reduction surgery, you will probably feel tired, sleepy and might suffer from pain. The plastic surgeon might also prescribe antibiotics as a prevention of any potential infection and also tablets for reducing the swelling.
