experts dedicated to your well-being
Regarding breast surgery, one of the interventions that we perform in our clinic is the reduction mammoplasty. As you can imagine by its name, it is a breast reduction technique to reduce the size of the breasts. Below we inform you about it.
What does reduction mammoplasty consist of?
The reduction mammoplasty or breast reduction is a surgical procedure that the patient undergoes to reduce the size of the breasts.
There is also augmentation mammoplasty, which as you can imagine by its name, aims to increase the size of the breasts. With which, through mammoplasty the patient can decide to increase or reduce the breasts to achieve the desired size.
In this intervention, you can reduce only one breast (if you have asymmetrical sizes) or both, depending on the results that the patient wishes to obtain. So it is 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 goal is to adjust the size and shape of the breasts, depending on the requirements of the patient, which we always recommend to have realistic expectations of the results.
This surgery can improve the overall appearance of the breasts and also the proportion with the body.
What is the postoperative period like?
The postoperative period may be different for each woman, since no two surgeries are ever the same. In general, although the surgery is not considered painful, it is normal to feel some burning at the incision sites during the days following surgery. You may even notice stiffness or intense itching.
Generally, the pain is relieved with anti-inflammatory drugs and paracetamol, thus reducing the inflammation and eliminating any discomfort. If the itching is very strong, antihistamines can be prescribed.
For a good recovery, a sports bra without underwire should be used for a month and should be worn all day. This way the breast can be worn with extra support until it heals properly.
You can lead a normal life in a matter of one or two months, depending on the patient and the intervention. So you must follow your doctor’s instructions very well, for a better postoperative period and better results.
Can I sunbathe? It is advisable to avoid putting the breasts in the sun for at least the first year after surgery. So it is better 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. There are complications such as slight asymmetries, a scar that opens or the nipple-areola complex. In the latter, if the pedicle is very long (something that often occurs in people with very sagging breasts), it can occur.
What about scars? Normally, they are concealed. If any scars are slightly noticeable, pressotherapy is a very effective technique to try to reduce them and make them less noticeable.
When to perform a mammoplasty?
Breast reduction mammoplasty goes beyond cosmetic surgery, as it can also be reconstructive surgery since it can help alleviate problems related to large breasts. Sometimes they are invisible, but they do 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 symptoms, we highlight back pain, heaviness in the neck and shoulders or problems in maintaining an upright posture, among others.
Regarding the problems from the physical point of view, having very large breasts can make it difficult to find clothes that fit your body well. In fact, it may be small in the breasts and loose in the belly, especially if the breasts are not proportionate. So reduction mammoplasty could help you.
It is an intervention that can certainly help to leave behind problems of self-esteem and lack of confidence, which are so common and in many cases have a solution.
Each woman has her own reasons to have it done, that is why it is essential to put yourself in the hands of a good surgeon. From our clinic will be a pleasure to help you.
