How is breast reduction done?

This procedure is usually performed in general anesthesia. Breast reduction involves removing excess breast tissue, fat and sagging skin. This procedure not only reduces the size of breasts but involves breast modeling and breast areola positioning to a higher position so that a natural and youthful appearance is achieved.

Surgical incisions are then lead around the edge of areola and down from the areola to inframammary fold depending on the scope of the procedure. In some cases it is possible to have only one incision around areola or a vertical incision.

Large areolas are reduced to smaller size. There are visible scars after the procedure in above mentioned scope. Reduced nipples’ sensitivity can be present in some cases. The scars usually fade after some time (about a year after the procedure) and when given proper care, and are easily concealed by clothing.

Each client needs to have bed rest after the procedure; the breasts are tightened by sterile bandage. This bandage is later replaced by special compression garment. This garment provides breasts with necessary support, keeps them tight and in the right position. Wearing such garment plays important role in the whole process of the procedure and healing phase so that the procedure will bring desired result.

Breast may well be swollen and bruised for the first few days after the procedure but the swelling will quickly disappear and the final shape and breasts’ size is apparent soon afterwards. After necessary time of supervision in the medical center, client is released to a home care.

The recovery time is individual and depends on client’s natural healing ability. Help with everyday activities may be needed for a few days after the procedure. Physical activities are restricted to walking; this helps the incisions to heal properly. The formation of scars and their appearance can be helped with proper care, wearing of the garment and following surgeon’s instructions. This stage is however very individual with each client and can vary in certain aspects.

After the procedure, the client can enjoy smaller and lighter breasts which will improve her lifestyle and make her feel better. Health issues disappear quite soon afterwards and when the client follows healthy lifestyle and maintain a stable weight, the result can last almost forever.
