Breast Reduction: Treatment


Pre-Breast Reduction Consultation

During this consultation the patient will be able to specify with the surgeon what volume he wishes to keep. There are other elements to consider: the difference in volume between the breasts, the condition of the gland, the quality of the skin, the diameter of the areolas, etc.
Each case is particular and will have an intervention that will be adapted to each specific case.

Operative Techniques on Breast Reduction

The operation is performed under general anesthesia so that the patient does not notice any type of pain or discomfort.
The final techniques and scars vary according to the volume to be suppressed. It is usually necessary to add a vertical scar below the areola. However, in the most important volumes the scar will extend into the fold below the breast.
According to specialists in Plastic Surgery all the techniques that favor a short scar seem to give a less lasting result in time and a form that is not always completely satisfactory.

Treatment after breast reduction

Contrary to what is believed the postoperative is very rarely painful, especially with feelings of tension or tightness.
The patient will have to wear a bandage that can only be removed after a few days. The care is simple but routine: shower, healing ointment and protective compresses in an adapted bra.
Complications are rare. These can be:
Locals : they are usually linked to the poor quality of the skin that may have healed poorly.
General : rarely occur beyond the risk of infection.
The scars in most cases become invisible as time passes but sometimes they may become hypertrophic or keloid but it is not the usual.
After the operation, bruises that normally disappear between the first 8 and 15 days can be witnessed, depending on the person. In the same way some edema or swellings may also occur, which eventually disappear between the first 10 and 20 days.
The specialists in plastic, aesthetic and restorative surgery foresee that the total recovery comes from the 6 months and the year from the operation.
