What is a Breast Reduction?
The procedure, commonly referred to as reduction mammaplasty, is performed to eliminate excess skin, tissue, and fat off the chest. If you have a large breast, you may want to undergo reduction surgery on your breasts in order to lessen discomfort or achieve an ideal proportional size of your breasts in proportion to the body.
A breast reduction procedure can aid in improving your self-image as well as your ability to take part in sporting activities.
If you're thinking about the possibility of breast reduction surgery, you should consult an experienced plastic surgeon who is board certified. It is important to know the risks associated with breast reduction surgery and the potential risks and complications and also make realistic expectations.
- Should your breasts be big for your body and cause back neck, shoulder or back pain
- If you have a large breast with areolas and nipples (pigmented skin that surrounds the breasts' nipples) which point downwards
- When one of the breasts is bigger than the other, it will be a problem.
- If you're unsatisfied and self-conscious about the size of your breasts, you are not alone.
Women who seek breast reduction often have had children, are overweight, have a predisposition for large, disproportionate breasts, or are sensitive to estrogen. Large breasts often run in a family, inherited from mothers and grandmothers.
The procedure is a procedure that typically lasts between 3 to 5 hours can be performed at a hospital or a surgical center. A stay of at least one night isn't normally needed. The procedure usually involves three cuts. After the surgeon eliminates any the excess body fat, tissue, and layers of skin. The nipple as well as areola move into a more elevated position. The areolas could shrink in size. The skin that is located over the nipple area is pulled down and reshaped to the breasts. The use of liposuction is to enhance the contour of the arm.
The scars from breast reduction differ based on the type of incision your surgeon for aesthetics recommends for you. The surgeon may conceal certain incision lines within the natural breast contours, however some will show on the breast's surface. Incision lines can be permanent, they are most often they fade and increase over time. Plastic surgeons who specialize in aesthetics strive to minimize and reduce scars, with the aim of achieving the desired result with the least invasive scar. Specially designed suture and tissue handling techniques can further reduce the appearance of scars.
The first couple of days, you'll likely feel some swelling in your abdomen , and some general discomfort in the region. It is possible for your stitches to be removed within one week, and more sutures will be removed in the next two weeks or so.
It is suggested to perform light exercises as they aid in healing by reducing swelling (which lowers the likelihood that blood clots will form). However it is recommended that strenuous exercise be abstained for a couple of weeks until you are capable of working your abdominal muscles.
Unless you gain or lose a significant amount of weight or become pregnant, your breasts will remain a consistent size. However, gravity and the effects of aging will eventually cause your breasts to loosen and sag over time.
