Breast Reduction Overview

Breast reduction surgery is a procedure designed to surgically reduce the size of overly large breasts. This can help relieve physical strain caused by heavy, disproportionate breasts, as well as boost confidence and improve self-esteem. In addition to cosmetic benefits, breast reduction can also reduce symptoms of neck, back, and shoulder pain caused by the weight of large breasts.

What does a Breast Reduction procedure entail?

A breast reduction procedure typically involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the breasts, as well as the repositioning of the nipple and areola. The goal is to create a more proportionate size for the breasts. Depending on your desired results, it may also involve reshaping or restructuring of tissue. During surgery, excess skin and fat may be removed from the breast, as well as reshape or reposition the nipple and areola. The procedure may also involve using liposuction to further reduce the size of the breasts.

What is the recovery for a Breast Reduction?

Recovery from breast reduction surgery is can be a lengthy process, and patience is key. Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are common in the days following the procedure. You may also experience itching or burning in your chest area as you heal. You will likely be prescribed pain medications to help manage any discomfort that occurs during recovery.

It is important to follow your doctor's instructions closely, including any restrictions on physical activity. Typically, you will be advised to avoid strenuous activities and exercise for several weeks following the surgery. Additionally, when showering or bathing, it is important to use only mild soap and keep water away from the incision sites.

It may take several weeks for the swelling to completely subside, and the results of your breast reduction surgery may not be visible for several months. However, once you have healed fully, you can expect smaller breasts with a more natural shape and symmetry.
