Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and alleviate the discomfort associated with overly-large breasts. Large breasts can lead to both health and emotional issues. The weight of excess breast tissue can interfere with your daily living activities and your ability to lead an active life. Neck pain, back pain, bra straps putting pressure on your shoulders and a rash under the breasts are some of the issues associated with large breasts.
BREAST REDUCATION SURGERY
Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. It usually takes 2 to 3 hrs.
BREAST REDUCATION INCISIO
Depends on the surgical plan,breast volume and amount of skin removed
- Around the areola,
- Around the areola and down to the fold (lollipop/ vertical)
- Around the areola and down to the fold and along the fold (anchor/ inverted T)
After completing the incision extra breast tissue, fat, and skin are excised. Liposuction may be used during your breast reduction as well. Areola will be reduced during the breast reduction to match the shape and size of the new breasts. After skin and soft tissue is excised most scars will heal very well and do not show under clothing, swimsuits or bras.
