Breast Reduction Surgery

What is Breast Reduction or Reduction Mammaplasty?

Breast reduction or reduction mammaplasty is a practice done to remove surplus fat, tissue, and skin from the breasts. In case, you have large breasts, you can go for breast reduction surgery to relieve discomfort or to get a breast size in proportion to your body. Breast reduction surgery may also help improve your self-image and your ability to participate in physical activities.

Why Breast Reduction Surgery is done?

Breast reduction surgery is done to women who have large breasts and desire to resolve issues like:

  • Constant back, neck and shoulder pain that needs pain relievers
  • Constant rash or skin irritation under the breasts
  • Nerve pain
  • Restricted activity
  • Poor self-image due to large breasts

You may have breast reduction surgery at any age, however, your breast reduction surgery might be postponed if you have certain future plans, like childbirth or weight loss.

What is the Preparation before Breast Reduction Surgery?

If you want to be in good physical shape to ensure accurate healing, follow the instructions given by your doctor. Tell your surgeon about your medical history and overall health and discuss your expectations for breast size and appearance after the surgery. Stop taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements, to control bleeding during surgery. Before the procedure, prepare your home set for your recovery with clean towels, gauze, loose and comfortable dresses. Get everything your surgeon suggests to use after surgery like particular ointments or creams for the incision sites. You should also arrange for someone to drive you home.

How Breast Reduction Surgery Is Done?

Depending on your condition, breast reduction surgery may be done in an outpatient facility, or you can stay at least one night in the hospital. You may be given general anesthesia during the procedure in both cases, that means you will be put to sleep throughout the procedure.

Generally, the breast reduction surgery takes around two to five hours, sometimes it takes longer. Your surgeon will make an incision around your nipple then downward on the breast in the shape of a keyhole. Your surgeon will remove extra skin, tissue, and fat from your breasts and relocate your nipple. Your surgeon can use drainage tubes and then stitch up your breasts and wrap them in particular gauze. You may also be recommended to wear a surgical bra.

Recovery from Breast Reduction Surgery

You will require taking at least one week off from work for breast reduction surgery. Your doctor will tell you on follow-up appointments to remove bandages and stitches. Avoid physical activities for at least one month after surgery during recovery.
