How Can a Breast Reduction Surgery Help Me?

How Can a Breast Reduction Surgery Help Me?

Breast reduction surgery is an elective cosmetic surgical procedure that reduces the size of a woman’s breasts to fit better with her proportions and anatomy. Oversized breasts can have negative effects on a woman’s body as a result of the extra weight being put on the upper body. Women with excessively large and pendulous breasts will constantly experience bra indentations on their shoulders as well, which can lead to skin irritation among other issues. Dealing with the increased weight, a woman’s body can develop skeletal deformities, experience breathing problems, and suffer from constant back and neck pain.

A breast reduction surgery, also called reduction mammoplasty, is an ideal solution for women who struggle with oversized breasts. It can also be done on teenagers who feel self-aware about their overly large breasts, also avoiding any future medical problems that might develop as a result of the extra weight on the upper body. Therefore, you can expect your breasts to be more proportionate to your body with reduction mammoplasty.

What Can I Expect from the Procedure Itself?

We perform a breast reduction surgery under general anaesthesia and in a day hospital. The procedure is designed to remove excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue from the breasts to reshape and resize them into smaller and more proportionate breasts. This procedure will also relocate the nipples once the breasts have been reshaped, which can reduce the size of large areolas. However, it also means that you cannot breastfeed anymore after the surgery. In the end, this procedure will relieve the upper body from dealing with the excessive weight of large and pendulous breasts, leading to a healthier and more desirable outcome.

Recovering from a Breast Reduction Surgery

You will be required to wear a surgical bra for about 6 weeks to 3 months after your surgery to allow your body to heal and your breasts to adapt to their new shape while the swelling and bruising subside. You can expect to feel some pain and discomfort during your recovery as well, especially when you move around or cough. Your surgeon will prescribe some painkillers for you to deal with any discomfort. It is pivotal to use your prescribed medication, as other painkillers might alter blood coagulation or negatively influence your recovery in other means.
