Breast reduction

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure for removing excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size more proportional to the body and alleviate the discomfort associated with excessively large breasts (macromastia). Disproportionately large breasts can cause both physical and emotional suffering to patients. Patients with macromastia may experience physical discomfort due to breast weight. The resulting pain may make it difficult for some patients to perform physical activities. Along with the physical ailments of macromastia, some patients may suffer from emotional stress or more serious mental health problems.

Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Basically, surgery includes: moving the nipple to a new position and removing excess fat, glandular tissue and skin from the breast. The operation lasts from 2 to 3 hours, depending on the degree of breast reduction. For safety reasons, the patient after the breast reduction surgery stays in the hospital for 1-2 days.

Not every plastic surgeon is authorized to perform breast surgery. This should be borne in mind when making decisions about undergoing breast surgery. You should also pay attention to the clinic, in particular the conditions, equipment and medical team. Quality and safety are paramount. Before consulting, read the consent to the procedure to discuss any ambiguities related to the procedure. Patients qualified for surgery come to the clinic in the morning on the day of surgery. You should be fasting, without food or drink. Remember to take the test results and medicines that you take permanently. Most often, it is recommended to perform a set of about 15 screening tests, such as morphology, blood clotting and sugar levels, but the plastic surgeon will adjust individually which tests should be performed.

After surgery, the patient should stay in the hospital for 1-2 days. After returning home, it is necessary to wear a special surgical bra for about seven weeks. You should not carry weights and do intense physical exercises for a period of about 8 weeks. Avoid sunlight for six months. The full recovery period can take up to a year.

For safety reasons, the operation plan is determined individually between the patient and the surgeon during the pre-surgery consultation. Goals and expectations must go hand in hand with real possibilities and safety at the highest level.
