Who Is It For?
Some women face some serious problems on account of having very large breasts whether this is due to the genetic predisposition, hormonal changes or after pregnancy and breastfeeding. It is a real both every-day and health complication as they often suffer from headaches and neck/backaches. Breast reduction is a procedure for surgically reshaping exceptionally large breasts to increase comfort and satisfaction. Large breasts can dominate a woman’s appearance and give an unbalanced physical profile.
How Is It Done?
Incisions are made around the areolae and down into the folds under the breast. The excess glands, fat and skin are removed, the glands are remodelled and the areolae are repositioned up in the centre of the newly reshaped breast.
The breast reduction surgery takes approximately three to four hours and is preformed under general anaesthetic.
Breast reduction procedure requires two, sometimes three, overnight stays at the clinic and a two-week rest period. A re-bandage is done at the clinic on the third to fifth day after leaving the clinic. Then special compressive bra is worn. It is not advisable to sleep on the side and also all movements involving lifting arms up should be avoided. In the first two months after the operation, it is not recommended to go to a swimming pool as there is a high risk of acquiring infection. Avoid bras with stays and underwires for 4-6 weeks. Avoid lifting anything over five pounds for two weeks.
Back To Normal
Following uneventful recovery, it is normally possible to return to work and resume customary activities (excluding exercise) within three weeks of the operation. Normal physical activity, including exercise, can be resumed within two months.
The scars remain but fade considerably with time.
We also offer the reduction of so-called gigantomasty, extremely large breasts, which requires large gland, fat and skin removals.
Areolae reduction, resulting in an overall more pleasing aesthetic effect, is also offered by our clinic.
It is adviced to get an ultrasound of breasts/mammogram done before the surgery.
