BREAST REDUCTION FAQ’S

Breast reduction is not a simple operation, but it’s normally safe when performed by a qualified plastic surgeon. Nevertheless, as with any surgery, there is always a possibility of complications, including bleeding, infection or reaction to the anesthesia. You can reduce your risk by closely following your physician’s advice both before and after the surgery. The procedure does leave noticeable, permanent scars, although, they’ll be covered by your clothing.

In your initial consultation, it’s important to discuss your expectations frankly with us and to listen to our opinion. Every patient as well as every physician has a different view of what is a desirable size and shape for the breast.

We will examine and measure your breast, and will probably photograph them for reference during the surgery and afterward. (The photograph may also be used in the processing of your insurance coverage.) We will discuss the variable that may affect the procedure-such as your age, the size and shape of your breast, and the condition of your skin.

The breast reduction is nearly always performed under general anesthesia. You’ll be asleep through the entire operation.

The techniques for breast reduction vary, but the most common procedure involves an anchor-shaped incision that circles the areola, extends downward, and follows the natural curve of the crease beneath the breast. We remove excess glandular tissue, fat. and skin, and moves the nipple and areola into their new position. We then bring the skin from both sides of the breast down and around the areola, shaping the new contour of the breast. Liposuction may be used to remove the excess fat from the armpit area.

In most cases, the nipples remain attached to their blood vessels and nerves. However, if the breasts are very large or pendulous, the nipples and areola may have to be completely removed and grafted into a higher position. (This will result in a loss of sensation in the nipple an areola tissue.)

Stitches are usually located around the areola, in a vertical line extending downward, and along the lower creases of the breast. In some cases, techniques can be used that eliminates the vertical part of the scar. Occasionally, when only fat needs to be removed, liposuction alone can be used to reduce the breast size, leaving minimal scars.

After the surgery, you’ll be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a surgical bra over gauze dressings. A small tube may be placed in each breast to drain off blood and fluids for the first day or two. You may feel some pain for the first couple of days especially when you move around or a cough and some discomfort for a week or more. We will prescribe medication to lessen the pain.
The bandages will be removed after a day or two after the surgery, though, you’ll continue wearing the surgical clothing around the clock of several weeks. Your stitches will be removed in one to three weeks.

Although you may be up and about in a day or two, your breasts may still ache occasionally for a couple of weeks. You should avoid lifting or rush anything heavy for three or four weeks.

We will give you detailed instructions for resuming your normal activities. Most patients can return to work (if it’s not too strenuous) and social activities in about two weeks. But you’ll have much less stamina for several weeks, and should limit your exercise to stretching, bending, and swimming until your energy level returns; you’ll also need a good garment for support. You may be instructed to avoid sex for a week or more since sexual arousal can cause your incisions to swell, and to avoid anything but gentle contact with your breast for about six weeks. A small amount of fluid draining from your surgical wound or some crusting is normal.

Although much of the swelling and bruising will disappear in the first few weeks, it may take up to six months before your breasts settle into their new shape. We will make every effort to make your scars as inconspicuous as possible. Still, it’s important to remember that breast reduction scars are extensive and permanent. They often remain red for months, then gradually become less obvious, sometimes eventually fading to thin white lines. Of all plastic surgery procedures, breast reduction results in the quickest body-image changes. You’ll be rid of the physical discomfort of large breasts, your body will look better proportioned, and clothes will fit you better.
