Breast reduction

Breast reduction surgery consists of removing a significant portion of Your breast tissue. This treatment can be performed for both aesthetic and functional reasons. Large breasts often contribute to neck and back pain. They can also cause difficulties while playing sports or working. A common problem of women with large breasts is inflammation of the skin under the bust. Breast reduction surgery lowers the risk of breast cancer.

    Breast reduction surgery usually takes four to six hours. During this time, the surgeon removes the breast tissue, reduces the nipples as well as areolas, and cuts out any excess skin to give the breasts a desired shape. After the procedure, You are taken to the recovery room, where You must stay until the next morning. The bust is wrapped in an elastic bandage. In some cases, small drains are placed on both sides of the chest for one night.

    During the consultations preceding the procedure, You have to tell the doctor about Your medical history and current health condition. Be sure to mention all medications You take. Inform Your physician whether You are allergic to any medicaments. If You are planning on losing a lot of weight, it might be better to reschedule Your operation, as weight loss affects the shape and size of the breasts. Before the surgery, it is necessary to undergo mammography. You should also quit smoking at least six weeks prior to breast reduction.

    For two weeks preceding the operation, You must not take any dietary supplements or medications that increase the risk of bleeding, such as aspirin or warfarin. The day before breast reduction and in the morning on the day of the surgery, You should thoroughly wash the breasts and the armpit area with antibacterial soap. The disinfecting effect is stronger if You leave the soap foam on the skin for about ten minutes. You must not eat or drink anything for eight hours before the operation.

    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.
