Intro to Breast Reduction Surgery

Overly large breasts are not always a good thing! Indeed, many women are not happy at all about their large breasts and wish to have smaller chests to avoid physical and mental problems associated with large breasts. If you belong to this category, you can start thinking about breast reduction surgery.
Breast reduction or “reduction mammoplasty” is a cosmetic surgery that aims at reducing the size and shape of your breasts by removing extra fat and skin. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 43,500 breast reduction surgeries were performed in the United States in 2018. So, you’re not alone! Next, you will learn all you need to know about the benefits, steps, and risks of this surgery.

    Candidates for Breast Reduction

    Ideal candidates for breast reduction usually have the following characteristics:

    • Be in good health and without illnesses or major pre-existing medical issues.
    • Have physical issues related to large breasts, such as back pains or skin irritations.
    • Be a nonsmoker because smoking affects normal wound healing.

    Preparation for Breast Reduction

    First, you must find an experienced surgeon or trustworthy clinic that provides safe and guaranteed breast reduction surgery. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss your expectations and goals and may also perform a physical examination. The preparation for breast reduction may also include:
    • Undergo certain lab tests, such as blood tests.
    • Avoid smoking and tobacco products to guarantee adequate recovery.
    • Stop taking certain medications, such as aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs.
    • Set up your recovery environment at home and buy surgical bras and loose T-shirts or blouses.
    • Prepare clean washcloths and towels.
    • Keep eating well-balanced meals.

    Steps of Breast Reduction

    The surgery may take between 2 to 5 hours and may involve the following steps:

    8d40fae17bdb3676309855088e92ca73 Breast Reduction
    1. Anesthesia

    Your surgeon will put you under general anesthesia to keep you sleepy.

    2. Incisions Making

    Your surgeon starts by making an incision around your nipple. The incision runs to the breast crease in a straight vertical line. A second incision is sometimes made in the crease beneath the breast. Although the nipple is usually kept connected to its blood and nerve supply, some cases require a “free nipple graft”, which involves the removal and repositioning of the nipple, but this usually happens only for overly larger breasts.

    3. Fat Removal

    To decrease your breasts’ volume, your doctor will remove skin, fat, and glandular tissue through the incisions. Some surgeons use liposuction to remove extra fat. Also, they can add more support to breasts by putting extra deep stitches.

    4. Incisions Closure

    Finally, your surgeon closes the incisions with stitches.

    Recovery After Breast Reduction

    You will be able to go home the same day after a brief stay in the clinic or hospital. You will notice a bandage on your chest after the surgery, and nurses may give you a surgical bra before leaving the clinic. Your recovery may involve the following:
    • You may feel minor discomfort or pain in the first few days; thus, your surgeon will prescribe pain medications for you during this time.
    • To relieve discomfort, you can put cold packs on top of the bandages.
    • You can get up and start walking after the surgery, but it is still better to have someone beside you to assist your needs during this time.
    • You can take shower a few days following surgery, but you will most likely need assistance getting dressed.
    • The length of your recovery depends on your natural healing rate and the complexity of the surgery.
    • You can start driving and return to your desk job within a week, especially after you no longer feel pain or take pain medications.
    • Your cosmetic surgeon will most likely suggest you wait for 3 to 4 weeks before engaging in any activity other than walking to ensure optimal healing.

    Risks of Breast Reduction

    Breast reduction surgery usually results in scarring, but luckily, these scars will disappear over time and become hard to notice. Other side effects and issues that might arise after the surgery include:

    • Short or long-term loss of sensation in breasts or nipples
    • Damage to nerves or blood vessels
    • Anesthesia-related complications
    • Infection or bleeding
    • Bruising or swelling
    • Blood clots

    Furthermore, future pregnancies are likely to alter the form and size of your breasts. This, of course, will affect the range of benefits that you will get from breast reduction.
