Also known as reduction mammoplasty, this surgery is performed to remove excess fat, tissues and reduce the size of a woman’s breasts. It’s an outpatient procedure that helps women ease discomfort and achieve a breast size proportionate to their body.
It’s a cosmetic surgery performed mostly for aesthetic purposes. It includes tightening the surrounding tissue of the breasts for a youthful contour. It also helps women to improve their self-image, confidence and ability to perform certain physical activities.
Breast reduction surgery is recommended for women with large breasts which causes several issues such as chronic back pain, nerve pain and skin irritations. Our doctor will examine the breast tissues to determine the amount of skin that has to be removed. Based on the examination and the patient’s personal goals, the surgeon will perform various incision techniques. A few of them are:
Crescent lift: To correct minimal sagging issues
Peri-areolar lift: To correct mild sagging and to reduce areola size
Vertical lift: To remove excess skin and reshape the breast completely
Inverted lift: It requires three incisions to remove excess skin and sagging tissues
To prepare for surgery, take good care of your health and try to learn as much as you can about the procedure. Planning ahead can help ensure you have a successful procedure and heal faster with a smooth recovery.
Depending upon the procedure and the patient's health, our surgeons may recommend some patients to medications. However, these medications are prescribed after a thorough evaluation of their medical history and overall health. Therefore, you need to inform the doctor about your allergies and previous medical conditions in advance
Recovery time after the surgery may vary from one patient to another. Usually, it depends on several factors, such as the patient's age, the type of surgery and the adversity of the problem that is being addressed during the surgery. Therefore, it is important to talk to your doctor about the same prior to your surgery.
