Who should consider breast reduction?

First of all, women suffering from symptomatic macromastia might benefit from such surgery. The latter disorder refers to a significant enlargement of female breasts accompanied by physical or psychological symptoms. The former includes rashes, neck pain, backache, headache and upper extremity neuropathy from bra straps, while the psychological stress may cause self-confidence issues, unwanted attention or even bullying and not being able to wear a particular outfit.

Men may also suffer from an enlargement of breasts (gynecomastia). If the reason for such body change is not a variation in hormone metabolism, breast liposuction or reduction might solve the problem. The right procedure is chosen after a precise examination of breast tissue.

Breast reduction may be a way of treatment if woman complains of breast asymmetry. Usually, the latter is observed during puberty but at this point of life it is not recommended to undergo such surgery.

What happens after you agree to undergo surgery?

It is important to find a plastic surgeon you can trust and feel free around. Before the procedure a surgeon will likely measure your breasts and take some photos of you from the different angles. Besides, a great attention will be placed on the shape of your breasts, position of nipples and areola. You should also have a strong opinion on how significant you want changes to be.

Later a consultation will proceed to gathering of important information. You will be asked about previous and present health disorders, medications you are taking and allergies to foods and medical substances. Besides, it is important to mention any complications you had during previous surgeries. You can write all those things down at home to save time for both sides.

Before breast reduction

As for every surgical procedure a patient is not allowed to smoke for at least 2 months prior to a surgery in order to prevent from  necrosis of skin as this may lead to visible scars requiring additional surgeries. A surgeon may also advise you not to attempt to lose weight and stop taking certain medications.

In order to achieve the best results you will also have to undergo some lab tests. Usually, it may include a complete blood count, blood coagulation test and urine test, but in some cases the list is expanded. The latter depends on the patient’s physical factors such as age, weight and overall health condition.

What happens during a breast reduction procedure?

After a precise examination of your case a doctor will choose whether a wise pattern or a vertical breast reduction is the best choice for you. The first method is used to the broadest range of patients. It is mainly due to the ability to reduce breast size in all positions. Significant results are achieved if breast ptosis is present because elevation of nipple ranges even to 16-20cm. However the procedure is criticized for leaving scars and flattening the contour of the breast.

The benefit of a vertical breast reduction is leaving a minimal scar and more tapered shape. The surgery is recommended for younger patients with modest macromastia because vertical breast reduction produces a lesser decrease in breasts size. Besides, the procedure is more challenging if breast asymmetry is present.

During the procedure a general anaesthesia will be applied. The following step is making an incision. Your skin will be cut in 3 places:

  • Around the nipple – reducing the size to 42-45mm
  • Vertical incision from bottom of the nipple to the breast crease
  • Horizontal incision following the breast crease

If vertical breast reduction is done then the third incision is not placed. Later an excessive amount of fat, a breast tissue and skin are removed and breast is shifted in upward direction.

What to expect after surgery?

Usually, drains are placed in incision sites to avoid formation of seroma after the surgery is performed. After 1 week you should visit a surgeon to get your sutures and drains removed. Also, you will be advised to wear a soft support bra for around 2 months.

Swelling, bruising and pain are common sensations after any surgery. Breast reduction is not an exception. These symptoms should not interfere with your daily life. However, in some cases medications are useful. Although feeling uncomfortable you will have to carefully perform some exercises of short duration. On the other hand, movements such as bending, lifting and straining should be avoided.

Scar management with a massage and cocoa butter or scar cream is recommended for 2 weeks after the surgery until there are no open wounds.

What are possible complications of breast reduction?

Although breast reduction is considered as a safe surgery, there is still a risk of some complications. Side effects to anaesthesia or bleeding may appear during the surgery. A well managed overall health and details of your previous medical history has a great importance to prevent such conditions. Besides, in some cases a surgeon may advice to donate your own blood before the surgery for extra situations.

After the surgery is performed there is a risk of infection. In order to prevent it you will be prescribed some oral antibiotics. Moreover, a permanent loss of sensation in the nipple and asymmetry of breast are considered as rare complications of the surgery.
