Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

Some women who have large, over-sized breast (breast hypertrophy) might have physical obstructions that can create limitations with their performances in physical activities and also create discomforts like back pain, shaving bra bands, sweating, heating and eczemas in breast folds. Large breast can also result in chronic back pain, neck pain, skin irritation, skeletal deformities and breathing problems.

Breast reduction surgery also called as mammoplasty or breast liposuction, will remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size proportionate to their body and thereby reduce the large breast associated discomforts giving a new lease on life. With mammoplasty, size of areola is also reduced giving well shaped breasts to properly fit into their clothes and enhance the appearance and confidence in them.

It gives an aesthetic appearance along with providing a solution to their associated medical problems mentioned. Sometimes, men also choose to undergo this surgery for similar reasons- reduce physical symptoms and improve their look. Sometimes the areola and nipple position need to be improved through a breast lift. Those with sagging breasts from aging or weight loss might need a breast lift along with breast reduction.

Performed under general anesthesia, excess fat s removed after making an incision and might have to stay in the hospital for a couple of days. The results are immediately visible with high patient satisfaction and can be performed in women of all ages except children in growing ages.

One must wear a support bra for initial few days until the swelling is healed, must avoid heavy exercises and lifting heavy weights and have to stay away from work for at least two weeks. A temporary decreased nipple sensation is normal for first few weeks to months and the incision lines can fade out over time.
