Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient procedure and is performed with general anesthesia. The time frame for the surgery is dependent upon several factors, including the incision type, the overall surgical technique, and the amount of tissue removal needed. The nipple and areola repositioning is another concern. Typically, liposuction is necessary for tissue and fat reduction to decrease the breast size. At the time of the initial consult, all of these factors are addressed. Scarring is also carefully discussed as it is common for scarring to occur. However, modern methods have led to a significant decrease in the complexity of scarring. Depending on the difficulty of the reduction, either an anchor or a vertical incision will be made. The breast tissue will be removed, and the surrounding tissue and skin pulled and lifted.
What to Expect
After surgery, our patients will be observed closely in our secluded recovery area, and then sent home to recover. A thin tube for draining will most likely be inserted near the surgical site to assist with bleeding. A medical sports bra will be worn for several days that will increase blood flow to the breasts during the initial healing period. Within about a month the breasts will naturally fall into position, and the post-op effects will diminish. Most of our patients remark that they feel lighter, relieved, and more confident. After breast reduction surgery, you can wear the clothes you so desire and feel excited with your new shape. Remember, it is important to adhere to a healthy body weight so the results are not compromised.
