Reduction mammoplasty in ibiza
experts dedicated to your wellbeing
In terms of breast surgery, one of the procedures we perform in our clinic is reduction mammoplasty. As you can imagine from its name, it is a breast reduction technique to reduce the size of the breasts. We will tell you more about it below.
WHAT REDUCTION MAMMOPLASTY CONSISTS OF
Breast reduction mammoplasty or breast reduction is a surgical procedure that a patient undergoes to reduce the size of her breasts.
There is also augmentation mammoplasty, which, as you can imagine from its name, aims to increase the size of the breasts. Thus, with a mammoplasty, the patient can decrease or reduce the breasts until the desired size is achieved.
In this procedure, only one breast can be reduced (in the case of asymmetrical sizes) or both, depending on the patient’s desired results. It is, therefore, common among women who wish to reduce one or more bra sizes.
WHAT IS THE SURGERY LIKE?
A reduction mammoplasty surgery follows a technique that involves the removal of excess breast tissue, tissue repositioning and reconstruction of the areola and nipple.
The aim is to adjust the size and shape of the breasts depending on the patient’s requirements, and we always recommend having realistic expectations of the results.
This surgery can improve the overall appearance of the breasts and the proportion of the breasts to the body.
WHAT IS THE POSTOPERATIVE PERIOD LIKE?
The postoperative period may differ for each woman, as no two operations are the same. In general, although the surgery is not considered painful, it is expected to feel some burning at the incision sites for a few days after surgery. You may even notice stiffness or intense itching.
The pain is usually relieved with anti-inflammatory drugs and paracetamol, thus reducing inflammation and eliminating discomfort. If itching is very severe, antihistamines may be prescribed.
For a good recovery, a non-wired sports bra should be worn for one month and worn all day. The breast can be carried with extra support until it heals properly.
Everyday life can be resumed within one to two months, depending on the patient and the procedure. Therefore, follow your doctor’s instructions closely for the best postoperative period and results.
Is it possible to sunbathe? It is advisable to avoid exposing the breasts to the sun for at least the first year after surgery. So it is best to protect them with a bikini. Try to use enough cream around the area.
CAN COMPLICATIONS ARISE?
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks. Complications include slight asymmetries, a scar that opens up, or the nipple-areola complex. In the latter, if the pedicle is very long (which is often the case in people with very sagging breasts), this can occur.
What if scars remain? They are usually concealed. If any are slightly noticeable, pressotherapy is a very effective technique to reduce them and make them less noticeable.
IN WHICH CASES SHOULD MAMMOPLASTY BE PERFORMED?
Breast reduction mammoplasty goes beyond cosmetic surgery, as it can also be reconstructive surgery, and it can help alleviate problems associated with large breasts. They are sometimes invisible but exist and can be unsustainable over time.
By undergoing this procedure, the patient can alleviate the physical and psychological symptoms associated with large breasts. Among the most frequent health-related problems are back pain, neck and shoulder heaviness or difficulty maintaining an upright posture.
Regarding the problems from a physical point of view, having very large breasts can make it challenging to find clothes that fit your body well. It may be small in the breasts and loose in the tummy, especially if the breasts are not proportionate. So, reducing mammoplasty could help you.
It is an intervention that can undoubtedly help to leave behind problems of self-esteem and lack of confidence, which are commonplace and, in many cases, have a solution.
Every woman has her reasons for having it done, which is why putting yourself in the hands of a good surgeon is essential. Our clinic will be happy to help you.
